“People come in asking; 'Where are all the machines?’
I tell them; 'We are the machines'"
– Crossfit ®
For crossfit athletes; who are training to achieve new PRs (personal records); maintaining their bodies is critical; much like maintaining a machine the work needs to be put in beforehand for optimal results – that is where chiropractic and acupuncture come in and do their best work.
“I would estimate that 90% of world class athletes use chiropractic on a regular basis to prevent injuries and to improve their performance.”Sean Atkins, PhD Exercise Physiologist
A Place To Raise The Bar And Your Spirits
As a ‘cross-fitter’ herself, Dr. Jacquelyn Nicholls has a unique perspective on the requirements of a crossfit athlete.
As she often says; “The warm- up of a crossfit athlete is what the average person’s whole workout is.” This is important to realize the amazing feats they are accomplishing but also to realize the strain and physical toll that will occur as well.
Injuries can be devastating; the athlete has worked tirelessly to become stronger/faster/ more coordinated etc. Our job is to get you back as safely and as fast as we can. Rarely, do I say ‘stop all activity’. Usually I will work with your coach and within your limitations to modify your training to maintain your gains.”
