Better Sports Performance With Chiropractic (video)

Schedule an Appointment

Driving a sports car in a race seems crazy to do if the steering did not work properly, the same concept can be true with our bodies.  Athletes push their bodies to the limit and in many sports coordination and balance are key ingredients to performance outcomes.  Our brain is responsible for coordinating every process of your body and the way that it gets messages to your body is through your nervous system.  Interferences in your nervous system will cause decreased body performance and therefore take away from peak athletic performance.

Top professional athletes from all different sports are constantly looking for ways to not only increase performance but to decrease chance of injury and increase recovery times.  The better the body works the better chance there is of this happening.  This is why we see an increasing number of professional athelets adding chiropractic to their regular schedule.

I still remember when I was in Chiropractic school coaching our university hockey team in the national finals and being fortunate enough to have won the national championship that year.  At the end of the game a reporter told us that the other team felt that due to the hectic schedule of the tournament we had an advantage because all of our players were getting adjusted.  Some nine years later that statement still sticks in my head because if that team knew it was such an advantage why did they not increase their own chance of winning by having a chiropractor taking care of their atheletes.

Nothing takes the place of hard work and natural talent but sometimes it can be the little things that make a big difference.  To have your spine and nervous system working at it’s top potential, give us a call.  403 271 7224

Fish Creek Chiropractic, your Calgary Chiropractor.


Written by Dr. Aaron Cain

Health, wellness, and optimum performance have always interested Dr. Cain. As a kid and early adult, he spent a lot of time training for the goal of being the best hockey player that he could be. This quest brought him to different levels, including junior hockey in Flin Flon Manitoba, Northern Michigan University, The Calgary Flames minor league system, and then over to Europe. As the level of competition increased, it became more apparent that even small increases in performance could make a large difference in what level a player could reach. His experience really motivated him to research optimum performance in athletes. It made sense to him that, if the brain and nervous system control the entire body, the better that this system works, the better the person works. This led Dr. Cain to his next path, Chiropractic School in Atlanta, Georgia. Along with graduating as a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Cain received a master’s degree that focused on athletes and human performance. As fun as it was to work with athletes of all different levels, he started to shift his focus more towards family practice and educating people on not only chiropractic, but also on the way they eat, move, and think. Dr. Cain has always loved the city of Calgary and all that the mountains had to offer. So in 2004, he decided to move here and start his chiropractic practice. Since that time, he has found it very rewarding to help the people of his community reach their health goals and to expand their minds to what is possible by making healthy lifestyle choices. Dr. Cain looks forward to meeting you in person and helping you achieve the level of health you deserve.
