Sports Chiropractic with Dr. Scott Gardner
Sports Chiropractor in Clifton, NJ: Active in athletics from football to baseball to bodybuilding, it was initially a sports injury that introduced Dr. Gardner to chiropractic.
Activities can exert a tremendous amount of stress on the spinal column and joints. Dr. Gardner works with amateur through professional athletes in Clifton, NJ and surrounding neighborhoods for optimal health to prevent injury. Unfortunately injuries occur, but with chiropractic for sports injuries, clients regain strength and avoid chronic issues.
A sports injury such as a sprained ankle or sore back can result from poor technique or lead to poor technique when an individual athlete overcompensates for an injury favoring one side of his or her body or one position. Sports injuries also lead to secondary pains and problems. Dr. Gardner treats not just the specific location of pain, but the areas radiating out from it as well.
Often, sports injuries can be prevented. Dr. Gardner helps his patients prevent injury by teaching proper conditioning, warm-up, and cool-down techniques for each sport or exercise activity.

My visits to Dr. Scott began as routine bi-weekly adjustments. I immediately saw the results in “every day life,” particularly the noticeable decrease in chronic headaches. Our doctor-patient relationship evolved into a sport specific treatment plan. As a Quarterback who started well over 60 games at both the High School and College level, Dr. Scott helped keep me ahead of the competition. Whether it was nutrition, injury prevention, or when necessary, injury rehabilitation, Dr. Scott was responsive, smart, and dedicated to my health. A former athlete himself, Dr. Scott is ALWAYS up to speed on the new technology, treatments, and training programs that have changed drastically over the last 10+ years. I recommend Dr. Scott to anyone looking to improve their every day health, as well as male and female athletes of all ages. You won’t regret it.
