Not Your Ordinary Walnut Creek Chiropractor



If you have developed pain or injury from exercising at the gym, while at play or participating in sports, while at work, or from an accident it is very likely that we can determine what is wrong and how to make you better. Dr. Douglas Cancel of Performance Sport Care, a Walnut Creek chiropractor, specializes in the assessment and treatment of painful musculoskeletal injuries and sports related problems.

Dr. Cancel’s understanding of the methodologies utilized for peak performance, injury prevention, and rehab with elite professional athletes has inspired us, here at Performance Sport Care, to provide many of these same methods to a wide spectrum of weekend warriors, recreational athletes, and everyday people who seek an active and pain free life.

At Performance Sport Care, we provide comprehensive treatments for musculoskeletal disorders, including myofascial release in addition to a spectrum of performance/strength training strategies. We also offer personal training services.

Using proven, problem-focused principles, we are able to apply effective strategies and techniques to help our patients feel better faster and to achieve their physical performance goals, regardless of their competition level. Our patients know that we seek the fastest possible results.

Our Services

Sports Injury

When engaging in any sports activity, it is important to stay healthy and pain-free so you can perform at your best. But with injuries, you may become limited in your flexibility, mobility and function. Maximize your participation in sports activities with Dr. Douglas Cancel’s help.

Shoulder Injury

Our shoulders consist of an interlocking network of soft tissues, tendons, muscles and bones, which allows us to perform a wide range of motion. From reaching our back to stretching out to throw a pitch, our shoulders are involved every step of the way in our day-to-day life.

Spine & Knee Injury

Our spine and knees are made of complex system of bones and muscles, which, unfortunately, are prone to problems. In the case of knee disorders, one of its most common causes is osteoarthritis. This degenerative disease affects the muscles, ligaments and tendons that surround the joints. On the other hand, spine problems usually involve herniated or slipped discs, which cause radiating pain

Leg & Hip Injury

Musculoskeletal problems in the hips and legs are triggered by inflammation of the joints. When this happens, walking, running or bearing weight on the affected hip/s can be very difficult to do. In many instances, this condition is characterized with pain, restricted mobility and limited function.
