Globally, many professional sports teams have chiropractors on their staff. Chiropractic has been included in the Polyclinic of major games around the world, such as the Olympic Games, World Games, Pan-American Games, All-Africa games, and has become a favorite among competitors as it has been shown to treat injuries effectively, aid in injury prevention and enhance performance.

The Doctors at Epic Chiropractic Clinic focus on the complex relationship between nerves, muscles, and joints of the body and how this relates to its' overall function/performance. How the spine works (i.e., its biomechanics) can influence the nervous system and can alter the overall body behavior. Abnormal peripheral joint function (knees, shoulders, elbows, etc.) can alter nervous system action and reduce performance.

Specifics of examination and correction of body mechanics, including the spine and peripheral joints, is the domain of the chiropractor. By ensuring proper mechanics of the spine and peripheral joints, a chiropractor can influence a number of body functions: from reducing the coefficient of friction at the joint surface level, to balancing and restoring normal muscle tone through soft tissue techniques, to proprioceptive retraining.
