Sports and Athletic Care

As a competitive athlete, Dr. Skopp understands the demands placed on your body from your active lifestyle. With chiropractic care, we look at your spine as well as all extremities of your body. Dr. Skopp’s extensive training within sports medicine allows him a deep understanding of common injuries and their causes as well as the appropriate rehabilitation protocols. You can also use chiropractic care preventatively to ensure that you stay healthy.

Free Up Your Movement and Get Stronger

If you want to become a more efficient athlete, you may be interested in learning whether you have restricted movement in your body. We’ll release these limitations so that you can be more efficient, jump higher, get stronger or run faster. Just from simple soft tissue work through Active Release Techniques®, we can see a remarkable difference in an athlete’s strength levels.


The wide array of injuries we commonly help athletes with include

  • Iliotibial band syndrome
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Rotator cuff injury
  • Tennis elbow

  • Golfer’s elbow
  • Meniscus problems
  • Knee problems

If you think that you may need surgery or have had surgery recommended by your medical doctor, you may benefit from checking out what we can do first. There have been numerous patients who were able to avoid having surgery by having noninvasive, conservative chiropractic care.

We welcome everyone, including weekend golfers, triathletes and young athletes. Perhaps you just like walking and you’ve had hip or knee problems that stop you from taking your evening strolls. Your orthopedist might have diagnosed you with bursitis and given you a cortisone shot, but it only helps on a temporary basis. You might have also tried things like foam rolling but haven’t gotten results.

You might be surprised what our form of chiropractic can do for you!

Why Chiropractic Works

Some chiropractors provide machine-based therapies like electrical stimulation along with their care. Dr. Skopp, however, has found that the relief involved in these therapies is only temporary. Instead, he focuses on soft tissue work along with chiropractic care for a more effective use of your time and money.
