Whether it’s a weekend warrior, a child in soccer or a professional athlete, chiropractic has played a vital roll in helping those of all levels perform better and heal better when injuries arise.

Because chiropractic addresses the functional cause of a problem and not merely the symptoms, athletes are able to perform at their best without the use of drugs or surgery. Chiropractic adjustments to the joint mobilize the skeletal system and deep tissue massage releases the adhesions in the muscle system.

With over 20 years of experience, Dr. Lask has helped both professional and amateur athletes over the years heal from injuries quicker, survive the punishment of a heavy training schedule and perform at their peak when it counts. Many MMA  fighters get adjusted by Dr. Lask at the Ask Dr. Lask Wellness Center.

Read the testimonials from some of the world’s greatest athletes regarding how chiropractic has helped them.

Tiger Woods on Chiropractic – Professional Golf

“I’ve been going to Chiropractors for as long as I can remember.  It’s as important to my training as practicing my swing.  Being a chiropractic patient has really helped me a lot.  When I was in a growth spurt, my back became very sore and I was weak.  Not only did he adjust my spine, he also gave me strengthening exercises as well.  If you are tall and gangly, like I am, or play sports, I would recommend chiropractic.”

Troy Percival – Professional Baseball

“Once I started getting my spine aligned, including my neck and upper back, I started to get a lot more strength in my legs. I also started to regain the feeling in my arm — where it didn’t feel like it was a dead weight all the time.”


Emmitt Smith – Professional Football

Emmitt Smith“Some of it may seem hokey to some people, but if you traveled where I’ve traveled, done what I’ve done and seen the results that I’ve been getting, then you’d understand where I’m coming from.  Playing in a football game is like being in 30-40 car accidents. You can find yourself in awkward positions.  That stuff takes its toll.  But if you take advantage of the health care, balance your body back out, put it back where it’s supposed to be, you function better, and you recover faster.”

 Roger Craig – Professional Football

Roger Craig“I’ve been asked that question — you know the question — a hundred times. Do you believe in chiropractic? Let me answer it this way. I’ve sent over 30 of my teammates, including All-Pro quarterback Joe Montana to the chiropractor. And because of chiropractic, I never missed a game in 8 years!  What does that tell you about my feelings about chiropractic?”


Evander Holyfield – Professional Boxing

Evander Holyfield“I have to have an adjustment before I go into the ring. I do believe in chiropractic. I found that going to a chiropractor three times a week helps my performance.  The majority of boxers go to get that edge.”


Barry Bonds – Professional Baseball

Barry Bonds“I know when I’m off alignment, I know when my body is out of adjustment. If your body is there, then mentally you’ll be there. If your body feels good, then your mind feels good, and you are going to feel better about your game.”


Fred Funk – Professional Golf

Fred Funk“I do believe chiropractic has really benefited my game. Over the last three years, I feel I have become more exposed to, and knowledgeable about, the benefits of chiropractic for me and my game. I realize how your body can get out of balance, and chiropractic care helps.”

Dan O’Brien – Track & Field Olympian

Dan O'Brien“You obviously can’t compete at your fullest if you’re not in alignment. And your body can’t heal if your back is not in alignment. It was the holistic idea that I liked about chiropractic and that is what track and field is about. Every track and field athlete that I have ever met has seen a chiropractor at one time or another.  In track and field, it is absolutely essential.  Chiropractic care is one of the things I think that no one has denied or refuted.  If it were not for Chiropractic, I would have not won the gold medal.”

 Martina Navratilova – Professional Tennis

Martina Navratilova“A chiropractor was instrumental in putting my body back together…alternative therapies will play a bigger role in our lives. After all, people like what works.”
