Chiropractic is based on a simple assumption that our bodies can and will heal themselves. But we have to understand that decisions that we make on a daily basis can and will affect our body’s ability to express health or something less than optimum health (disease).

Whether helping a high school basketball player or an Olympic figure skater our team helps athletes of all ages and abilities get back to doing what they love- and do it better than ever.
If you think chiropractors simply “crack” backs, you’re not alone. Michael LeRoux, D.C., of Ocean State Chiropractic and Sports Rehabilitation, is accustomed to hearing this misconception.

For athletes, chiropractic can be used for injury prevention because it emphasizes proper alignment of the spine and pelvis. The most common sports-related injuries LeRoux sees in his patients, which range from recreational runners to Olympians and New Marathon winners, are plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, IT Band Syndrome, patella (knee) tracking problems and hip bursitis.

All training is conducted in a team setting – Chiropractior/ trainer/ athlete.
