Dr. Patrick Price a Houston Chiropractor has spent his entire Chiropractic career working on athletes at all levels. In the early 80’s he learned the art of “Shiatsu” (A form of Japanese massage) before he was a chiropractor from a martial art Master. Being a martial artist himself, the practice of this art gave him an insight of what is important to an athlete to reach optimum performance. Being an athlete himself, Dr Price had been a Chiropractic care patient since an early age and noticed the improvement of performance when he received adjustments to his spine. The “secret” that most athletes don’t usually know is to be treated when they don’t have pain, especially before an event – to finely tune your body. This greatly improves the performance of an athlete, because with the spine adjusted properly the lungs can take in more air from the improved movement between the ribs and the vertebral bones. Plus with Dr Price’s own system of Kinesiology (muscle testing), athletes improve the coordination between the muscles of the body and their core for maximum performance. This technique alone can make it night and day in the performance of the human body. More endurance and more flexibility are other benefits that are felt as well, and truly make a major difference in how the body performs and recovers.
Sports injuries can destroy your career if you are a professional athlete, but for the rest (weekend warriors), it can make life miserable. Especially if a chronic pain continues and interferes with your daily life. Professionals will greatly benefit with a performance treatment with Dr Price, it will be unlike anything most have experienced. Most athletes learn something new about their body after a session with Dr Price.
Whether you are a professional athlete or just an amateur doing what you love to do, Chiropractic care by Dr Price is not just a great treatment for injuries, but also a treatment for performance. If you want to have a better time hiking on the weekend, enjoy having your body tuned like a fine race car. Dr Price will find the “weakest links” to your body and strengthen them with his unique system of care. Don’t wait until there is an injury, get preventative care.

- Sprains/Strains (Hamstring, Elbow & Groin strains)
- Neck injuries (Martial artist, Football players, all impact sports)
- Herniated Discs (Painful bulging of a disc – the one no athlete wants)

Kinesiology is one of the most unknown forms of treatment to balance the body physically and chemically. A true non-drug, non-evasive treatment using only natural care for athletes. With typical Chiropractic care the patient receives an adjustment and maybe some type of soft-tissue treatment performed by a machine. With Dr Price, he uses your body as the machine, using your muscles to communicate with each other. His system of Kinesiology; “Applied Kinetic Science” is a unique art to help athletes perform at their best. Ask any martial artist or athlete he has worked on……Dan Inosanto, Erik Paulson, Steven Seagal, Kathy Long, Shaq O’Neal, Warren Moon and too many others to mention.
