“When I decided to compete in Senior Track and Field events after a 40 plus year absence, I knew I’d face injuries and pain from training at a very high level. So, I visited Dr. Priester to talk about my goals and to anticipate areas of potential injury so we could minimize lost training time.

In seven months, I’ve been able to:

• Win gold in the Florida Senior Games • Tied the FL state record • Set a new NC senior record • Earn a #2 national ranking for my age group

When I qualified to participate in the Senior National Championship Games, John was the first of my friends that I called to share the news. I can honestly say that I would not have been able to train and perform at a world class level without the special care and advice I’ve received from Priester Chiropractic. Attached is a video for my 60th birthday:”
