Sports Chiropractic

Maximum Performance the Natural Way

World class professional and Olympic athletes seek sports chiropractic care because it is a drug-free way to maximize health and physical performance. Chiropractic and sports performance go hand in hand. Top professional athletes in every sport utilize chiropractic to gain the competitive edge.

Lance Armstrong Seven Time Tour de France Winner
Tiger Woods PGA Champion Golfer
Arnold Schwarzenegger Seven Time Mr. Olympia Bodybuilding Champion
Tom Brady NFL Superbowl Champion Quarterback and MVP
Dan O’Brien Olympic Decathlon Gold Medalist 1996
Evander Holyfield Five Time World Heavyweight Boxing Champion

Dr. Ian believes that the secret to ideal health and maximum human performance comes from living what he calls "the ENCI lifestyle". ENCI, the first four letters in the city Encinitas where Dr. Ian lives and works, stands for "Exercise, Nutrition, and Chiropractic Integration."

You don't have to be a professional athlete to get the benefits of chiropractic care. Sports chiropractic care is for anyone who enjoys living a healthy and active lifestyle. Most of the diseases of western civilization are due to a sedentary lifestyle. Sitting at a computer for extended periods of time is simply bad for your body.  Your body is made to move, make sure it’s moving well with sports chiropractic care.

Dr. Ian earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Kinesiology (the science of human movement and exercise performance) and Philosophy (the study of knowledge and wisdom). He chose these areas of study because of his interest in exploring the mind-body relationship and his desire to work with those who live an active lifestyle as a sports chiropractor.

After graduating from Life Chiropractic College West, Dr. Ian completed a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training program at Corepower Yoga in Encinitas.  People who practice yoga on a regular basis prefer to live a natural lifestyle and often do not like to take prescription drugs.  Dr. Ian is excited to have completed this program and looks forward to providing natural wellness care for the active yoga and fitness community in Encinitas.

Sports chiropractic can help you perform at your very best whether your sport is yoga, running, swimming, cycling, marathons, traithlons, surfing, golf, tennis, snowboarding, pilates, body building, CrossFit, or any other form of exercise and fitness.

Lance Armstrong, Seven Time Tour de France winner:

After his last Tour de France win, Lance said that he could not have won without his chiropractor's help.

The team wasn't just riders. It was the mechanics, masseurs, chefs, soigneurs, and doctors. But the most important man on the team may have been the chiropractor.

Tiger Woods,14 time PGA Championship Golfer: 

Lifting weights and seeing a chiropractor on a regular basis has made me a better golfer. I’ve been going to chiropractors for as long as I can remember. It’s as important to my training as practicing my swing.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, 7 time Mr. Olympia, Governor of California: 

I am very fortunate to have, so-to-speak, my in-house chiropractor, Dr. Franco Colombu, as my own personal chiropractor. So, I visit Franco regularly, and he comes over to my house. He adjusts my wife, my kids, me, everybody gets an adjustment. And we always feel great when Franco leaves. Even when I have athletic injuries he's always there for me, and helps me.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, 7 time Mr. Olympia, Governor of California: 

The best way to use Chiropractic is not only after injuries, but before they occur. So it's really terrific, and I know that first hand. That's why I always will be traveling around, all over the world, talking highly about the profession of chiropractic.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, 7 time Mr. Olympia, Governor of California: 

You chiropractic doctors are really miracle workers, and that's why it's really great to have you here, part of the Arnold Classic. Because, like I said, the Arnold Classic and Fitness Weekend are about health and about fitness and preventive care.

Tom Brady, New England Patriots quarterback, 3 time Superbowl
Champion & 2 time MVP: 

As long as I see the chiropractor, I feel like I’m one step ahead of the game.

Terrell Owens, NFL Wide Receiver: 

Those are the guys that put me on the field when I didn’t think I had a chance to be on the field. These are professionals, and God put them in my life for a reason.

Dan O'Brien,Olympic Decathlon Gold Medalist 1996: 

If it were not for Chiropractic, I would not have won the gold medal.

Dan O'Brien,Olympic Decathlon Gold Medalist 1996

You obviously can't compete at your fullest if you're 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.

Joe Montana,4 time Superbowl Champion, 3 time Superbowl MVP, & Player of the Year in 1990:

Chiropractic care works for me. I only wish I had tried chiropractic a few years ago when I first started having back pain and maybe surgery would have never happened - Now we know that chiropractic is not just for bad backs or necks. It's about prevention, so your body can function at optimum health. That is why children should also be adjusted.

Evander Holyfield, 5 time World Heavyweight Champion:

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.

Jerry Rice, 3 time Superbowl Champion
(Foundation for Chiropractic Progress): 

I did a lot of things to stay in the game, but regular visits to my chiropractor were among the most important.

Jerry Rice, 3 time Superbowl Champion,
one of the game’s most durable players,
a 13-time Pro Bowl football player who
owns 38 career records and
three Super Bowl rings:

I am proud to communicate with the American public about the value of chiropractic care. Professional football is a very rough and vigorous sport, and I attribute my longevity and durability to a vigorous exercise program and chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic gave me the edge to succeed, not only on the gridiron but also on the dance floor.
