Elite Athletes in Torrance

Chiropractor Torrance CA Brad Barez Elite Athletes

I'm Dr. Brad Barez, and I've been dedicated to elite sports chiropractic care since 1994. My journey began with firsthand experience in the intensely competitive world of sports, including my background in three varsity sports in high school and collegiate-level participation. Following a life-altering injury, I discovered alternative pathways to recovery, inspired by my mother's pioneering work in physical therapy.

At Elite Sports Chiropractic Care in Torrance CA, our goal is to prioritize natural treatment methods to address and resolve ailments. We focus on developing a tailored preventive program to optimize athletic performance, minimize the risk of injury, and recover at an intense speed.

Understanding The Edge In Torrance Ca

Understanding the intricate relationship between the nervous system and athletic performance is key to recognizing the benefits of sports chiropractic care. Every muscle, tissue, and organ in the body is coordinated 100% by the nervous system. As an athlete, factors such as strength, range of motion, endurance, and reflexes are all controlled by the nervous system. Any pressure or interference affecting the nervous system's control and coordination can hinder optimal athletic performance. The goal of sports chiropractic care is to ensure that the nervous system is "turned on" before, during, and after competition and practice, enabling athletes to achieve the highest levels of performance possible.
