Whether you have gone pro or you are a weekend warrior, your body needs to be at its best to perform the way you want. You train and eat right, but are you doing all you can to make your body well? Many professional sports teams are realizing the important link between chiropractic care and physical performance and are now employing their own chiropractors to help their players with injury recovery and total body wellness. In fact, Dr. Cheree used to be the chiropractor for the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings before moving to Las Vegas.

Chiropractic care is not limited to just treating sports injuries.
