Chiropractic Therapy Improves CrossFit Performance

Last week, Dr. Brad Cole was interviewed by Fitr.tv on their popular Barbell Shrugged podcast.

How Chiropractic Therapy Can Prevent Injury and Improve Performance in CrossFit – EPISODE 31

Most readers know that CrossFit has exploded as a sport. The functional movements (squatting, picking up heavy things, pulling, running, climbing, jumping) integral to CrossFit exercise programs leave no room for inefficiencies of motion. As chiropractic physicians, we at Cole Pain Therapy Group evaluate and treat the movement system, with a strong appreciation for the goals of any athlete.  We enjoy being part of an athlete’s support team.
