His knowledge and abilities have kept me in top shape to keep my business running and enjoy working out with my son.

  • Great family-friendly care!

    We have a large family with lots of different needs to be met and Dr. Hulbert does a fantastic job caring for each and every one of us! I love walking out and hearing one or more of the kids comment that things feel better after spending time in pain. Shelley works with our crazy after school schedule and that's a tall order. We never have a hard time getting an appointment, the visits are prompt and efficient. Toy area and a changing table are super helpful as well. Thank you Dr. Hulbert and Ms. Shelley! We love our chiropractic family!

  • Such a relief!

    I am ashamed to say that I waited until I was in extreme pain and unable to stand erect before I sought out a chiropractor. I am so glad that I found Dr. Hulbert. Not only did I start to feel relief the first day, but my hope that things could be better was restored. Now, things are better and I am so grateful to have a partner in making sure it stays that way.

    We had our first initial appointment for my son, who was feeling a little unsure. Dr. Hulbert put him at ease right away. He explained everything before he did anything so he knew what to expect. Afterward, my son told me how he liked everyone there and how nice they were. Bonus no headache complaints so far!!

    Becky E.

  • Excelent Chiropratic Experience

    Premier Family Healthcare has provided excellent service for me and my 14 yr old daughter. My daughter was unable to train & play soccer with her club team for a few weeks due to lower back pain. After several adjustments with Dr. Russell Hulbert, she was back in the game and feeling great. I personally have dealt with "on again off again" lower back pain and degenerative disc pain in my neck for over a decade. I've tried physical therapy, massage therapy, steroid injections and a chiropractor with a much different approach than Premier Family Healthcare. I had come to the conclusion that my lower back will be fine but I will just have to live with the Chronic pain in my neck. I couldn't have been more wrong; Dr. Hulbert has made adjustments to my neck that have been an absolute game changer for me. I highly recommend this facility for all your aches, pains, and overall health!

    Shelli R.

  • Very friendly and professional

    The office is always clean and welcoming. I always feel like a valued client and Dr. Hulbert is great.

    John B.

  • Thanks doc !!

    I've been seeing Dr.Hulbert as a new patient for a little over a month now, and the improvements that I've experienced have been nothing short of amazing! I'm almost 53 years old and for the most part I've been healthy and fit for the majority of my life with proper eating and varying levels of intensity of resistance/weight training and aerobic training. In addition, I've got a compressed disc and herniated disc in my lower back from an injury I incurred back in 1992, but I've continued to maintain an even fitness level to ward off any surgeries.... and along with those injuries, I've always experienced some sort of pain or nagging discomfort. However, over these last several weeks after being under the AWESOME care of Dr. Hulbert, I've experienced a new level of flexibility, mobility, and ease of proper posture I haven't had in a couple of decades....all I can say is that I should have done this YEARS AGO!!

  • Extremely impressed

    This was my very first visit to a Chiropractor and I was extremely impressed with Dr. Hulbert and his staff from the moment I walked in the door of his office. Their facility is extremely clean and has a professional, yet relaxed atmosphere and Lucy was the first person I met when I walked in...Lucy definitely set the tone for a wonderful first visit to Dr. Hulbert's office. She checked me in with all my paper work, and did one of my initial assessments as a new patient, and I thought she did a great job. When I met with Dr. Hulbert, he took his time with me to understand all my issues, and I feel confident that he is going to get me on the right path to a better quality of life!

  • he is AWESOME

    being a retired fireman I have had hip, neck and back issues for the past 30 years. I hadn't seen a Chiropractor in the last 10 years and was having some real issues. I started seeing Dr. Hulbert in October 2014. I started feeling results within the first month. His passion and true care for his patience is amazing. I haven't felt this good, forever! he is AWESOME. Due to the progress I have made my wife, son and daughter all are seeing Dr. Hulbert and they too are feeling great. What a difference he has made in our lives, he is the only one I will trust with our Chiropractic care.

    Absolutely great - Dr. Russell is personable and WELL versed in his knowledge and care. I am impressed by his attention to detail, his pre-adjustment study and his care plan.

9 Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Athletes

Chiropractic care for athletes
image

Are you an athlete looking for a way to eliminate fatigue and promote unparalleled performance? Statistics indicate that athletes who use chiropractic care have an advantage over their counterparts who don’t. 

Chiropractic care is one of many forms of natural health care, specifically a non-invasive, drug-free alternative that can help patients find relief from a variety of musculoskeletal issues. Athletes, in particular, can greatly benefit from chiropractic treatments both before and after they practice and perform.

Professional sports leagues including Major League Baseball (MLB) along with the National Football League (NFL) have recognized these benefits for years, with most teams employing their own official sports chiropractor. The National University of Health Sciences (NUHS) graduates Marc Legere, DC, and Randy Cybulski, DC, (who himself was an NFL player earlier) have also treated these professional athletes in private practice.

 

Here are some important reasons why chiropractic treatment is essential for athletes:

Relieves Pain from Strenuous Exercises

As you cheer and watch your favorite athletes perform in the arena, what you don’t understand is that they subject their bodies to unimaginable torture and endure lots of muscle and body pains to train and continue to improve their performance. However, thanks to chiropractic care, athletes no longer have to live with these pains. This is because proper alignment helps relieve the pain. 

Treats Pain

Chiropractic care focuses on spinal manipulation. The spine houses our central nervous system. For that reason, with adjustment of the spine, one could have their pain greatly reduced. All this is achieved thanks to chiropractic care. 

Active people, even the strongest athletes, can suffer from back pain, particularly in the lower back. A chiropractor knows exactly how to work with a sensitive spine to promote proper alignment and movement. In addition to restoring function, chiropractors can recommend treatments that will reduce all types of back pain both in the short-term and the long run.

A growing amount of research confirms spinal manipulation as an effective form of pain relief. An April 2017 study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association found that spinal manipulation was associated with statistically significant improvements in both pain and function with no major adverse side effects.

Treats Injury

As testified by several athletes, chiropractic care helps reduce the chances of one getting injured. The practice also helps the body to heal fast from both minor and major injuries because chiropractic care assists the muscles to relax and also helps in enhancing proper blood circulation. All these are paramount if at all an athlete is to perform perfectly. With care focused on spinal manipulation, it also heals headaches, ankle pains, and spinal pains. Therefore, it is crucial for any athlete to visit a chiropractor in order to stay away from these complications.

Drug-Free and Non-Invasive

This is a major benefit since it does not pose side effects to one’s body. Being non-invasive implies that one can get into action immediately they come from this procedure as opposed to invasive procedures where one has to give their body some time to recover.

While aches can be, and often are, treated with pain medications, cortisone shots, and other drugs that provide short-term relief, chiropractic care gives athletes a drug-free alternative that can reduce or even eliminate their pain. This also means that athletes won’t be subjected to the side effects or dependencies that commonly arise from the use of prescription medication.

 

In fact, the widespread dependency on opioids in the United States has prompted the American College of Physicians to update their guidelines regarding low back pain—one of the most common reasons doctors prescribe opioids. The group now suggests those with low back pain use various complementary and alternative medicine techniques including spinal manipulation before resorting to prescription medication.

 

Chiropractic care is non-invasive, and it can provide relief from injuries throughout the body, not just neck and back injuries. It may even serve as a viable alternative to invasive procedures such as surgeries that would keep athletes sidelined during a long recovery period. Treatment methods, such as electrical muscle stimulation, functional dry needling, the Graston Technique, and the Active Release Technique, can be used to care for athletes suffering from a variety of injuries.

Enhances Overall Performance

In case you visit an Orange County chiropractor, you will not only get treatment but also get into a program that will ensure that you do not get injuries easily. In fact, your performance will be enhanced using chiropractic care. How is that? Well, studies have shown that chiropractic care greatly helps enhance an athlete’s performance.

Increases Strength

Although initially meant for treatment purposes, studies indicate that chiropractic care also helps in increasing the strength of an athlete. In fact, it has been proven that those athletes who use this practice are stronger than those who don’t. And yes, strength and performance are almost synonymous; one can never work without the other. It follows that being strong translates to great performance.

Increased Range of Motion

One of the biggest benefits of regular chiropractic treatments is improved range of motion. Athletes put a lot of pressure on their bodies every time they train, and physically intense activities can create problems with spinal alignment and movement. An athlete can easily end up with stiffness and pain in their joints. This may cause their range of motion to be limited, thereby inhibiting their overall athletic performance. Receiving the appropriate chiropractic care can help undo the damage and prevent injuries before they occur, all while promoting movement that’s pain-free.

Reduces Healing Time

Even when injuries can’t be prevented, chiropractic care can help to shorten healing time for a variety of ailments. For example, neck and head injuries can lead to headaches that originate from a patient’s neck. By adjusting an athlete’s neck, a chiropractor can provide relief from these troublesome and often debilitating headaches. Shoulder manipulation can be added to rehabilitation protocols to reduce pain and improve outcomes amongst athletes with shoulder injuries. Even ankle sprains can heal more efficiently with the help of adjustments that reduce pain, improve function, and increase motion.

Promotes Relaxation

This is obvious. Given the fact that your body is carefully massaged and every pressure point professionally worked on, there is no doubt that the results will be a unique relaxation. For any athlete who wants to feel relaxed and have pressure relieved from their body, this is the procedure to seek.

There are numerous benefits that an athlete stands to gain for using chiropractic care. Ultimately, if you’re an athlete who wants to maintain your physical strength and range of motion, or if you want to recover from an injury without the use of prescriptions and invasive treatments, you may want to consider seeing a chiropractor on a regular basis. Although this article focuses on athletes, it is worth noting that these benefits apply to those who do not take part in sports. You may be surprised by how much better you feel and how much your performance improves when your body is in alignment and pain-free!
