Dr. Cancel  PatientDr. Douglas Cancel has established a successful full-services sports chiropractic and rehab facility in Walnut Creek, CA. His practice treats a broad spectrum of musculoskeletal injuries and pain problems involving the neck, back, spine, shoulders, and extremities.

At Performance Sport Care, we treat people from of all walks of life, and we treat everyone “like a Pro.” We take the time to provide you with personalized, convenient care with the primary emphasis on obtaining the fastest possible results. Whether it’s just pain relief or full injury rehab, we provide comprehensive and individualized treatments, depending our patients’ needs and requirements.

Our services bridge the gap that between orthodox Chiropractic care, ordinary physical therapy, and performance/strength training that often prevents many people from overcoming their injuries or pain problems. Using a holistic approach to each problem that comes before us, we conduct a complete evaluation of the injury and surrounding areas, looking for deficiencies or weaknesses that may factor into the problem. By understanding each person's unique physical challenges, better and quicker results are possible, as well as reduced risk of future injury.
We have a track record of success with these conditions:

  • Achilles tendinitis, bursitis, plantar fasciitis, runner’s knee pain and shin splints
  • Lower back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Tension headache

But we also treat a variety of other sports-related and bodybuilding injuries (including CrossFit injuries).

In addition to the personal attention and careful diagnosis we provide, we offer customized nutrition, exercise, personal training and conditioning programs to help you feel better, healthier and stronger. No other Walnut Creek chiropractor, including most health care facilities, has more experience in the area of strength training and bodybuilding than we do.

Dr. Cancel also has a strong relationship with the leading medical specialists in Northern California. This includes specialty areas such as Orthopedic Surgery, Neurosurgery, Neurology, Radiology, Endocrinology, Physical Medicine, Podiatry, Psychiatry/Psychology, and other Sports Medicine sub-specialties, plus chronic pain management. If we can’t solve your problem, we will guide you to someone who can. And we will waste NO time doing so.
