About Gallagher Performance
Experience the Difference
Our extensive knowledge base and professional experience in chiropractic, sports medicine, rehabilitation, athletic development and ideal body function allows us to bring together a number of services to empower our clients and patients to reach new personal bests while living an active, pain-free lifestyle. All our clients and patients receive the same care and attention as we provide when working with our professional and collegiate athletes, competitive powerlifters/Strongman, and physique competitors.
GP’s innovative vision and knowledge makes us highly sought after for difficult patient cases, for highly motivated athletes, and for those that are serious about their health, fitness, and wellness. Offering chiropractic, performance training, nutrition, massage and advanced sports medicine techniques, Gallagher Performance has established a system to physical health and athletic development that may be imitated, but never duplicated.
Chiropractic & Sports Therapy
Gallagher Performance provides the highest quality in patient care by using an integrative approach of multiple disciplines – chiropractic, manual therapy, functional rehabilitation, strength training & exercise. With this model we are able to create unique strategies to eliminate pain, enhance performance and elevate wellness. We believe in enabling everyone we work with to achieve their full potential.
Regardless of whether training occurs in a private or semi-private setting, clients are closely coached through the entirety of their program to maximize results. If your goal is to enhance your athletic performance, resolve chronic pain problems, or simply get in the best shape of your life, all our clients begin with a comprehensive physical assessment. All the information gathered during your initial assessment is used to design an individualized training program.
Massage therapy at Gallagher Performance focuses on the restorative qualities that body work plays in the healing process. Massage therapy targets adhesions that develop either within a single muscle or between adjacent muscles and other forms of connective tissue such as fascia, tendons and ligaments. The goal becomes to work a muscle to remove adhesions and restore neuromuscular function to decrease pain while increasing range of motion, strength, and coordination of movement.
