As a sports chiropractor, Dr. Dale tends to view all patients as athletes. At least in the context that they're seeking his care and counsel to either perform better or to regain something that they've lost. This might be someone who wants to perform at his or her optimum. To be able to run faster, jump higher or perhaps in the case of a motorcyclist, to be able ride harder and longer. Or, maybe that patient is just hoping to be able to bend over to tie their shoes without pain. Regardless of the case or condition, we always offer the patient all available options to return to their full potential as quickly as possible.
