A chiropractor is someone who specializes in treating a variety of ailments in the body. Ranging from low back pain and knee pain to carpal tunnel and migraines. What separates chiropractors from other doctors is the fact that they do not use surgeries or drugs in order to treat their clients. Instead they use gentle chiropractic spinal adjustments to restore the spines natural range of motion which in turn helps with irritated nerves and other tissues.

“In a pursuit of a career, athletes are often taught exercises and lifestyle habits that will NOT serve them well in a life beyond sports”
The reality is that on average even high end young athletes will never make a living as an athlete. But in their pursuit of a career they are often taught exercises and lifestyle habits that will NOT serve them well in a life beyond sports. Very few of them understand how sleep and nutrition and stress management impact not only their health but their performance – this often even includes those in the professional ranks. Exercises typically focus on power, speed and strength with lesser emphasis on range of motion and coordination of movement. Nutrition often focuses on bulking up and popular gimmicks for energy and building bigger muscles rather than the simple basics that are not only foundational but necessary for tissue repair and growth.
In all cases it is Dr. Fletch’s goal to go Beyond Sports while addressing injuries and performance and teach and establish healthy habits, which ensure optimal health for a lifetime of activity. Dr. Fletch remains committed to a healthy lifestyle, getting adjusted every other week and remains active by playing hockey, golf, and actively maintaining his own fitness in the gym and on the altitude simulator. He has always felt it critical that he actually practices what he implements and teaches to his clients, thereby leading by example.
