At Elite Spinal & Sports Care® you will find an unparalleled combination of the most innovative treatment techniques with the basic principles and philosophy of Chiropractic. We specialize in sports injuries, functional movement assessments, specific soft tissue release techniques and complex cases.
Patients can be assured that no matter what their condition, we are committed to providing the highest level of personalized care to help you achieve your wellness objectives. We strive to identify and correct the root cause of your musculoskeletal problem, rather than simply telling you to rest, ice or make attempts to mask the symptoms. In fact, in most cases we want you to keep exercising and doing the sport/activity you love as motion helps with the healing process.
What sets us apart is our focus on the entire body, not just the spine. Specializing in extremity case management, we have been able to help patients not only for various spinal conditions, but also for issues involving the joints and soft tissues of the arms and legs. So whatever your personal condition, from headaches to low back pain, shin splints to carpal tunnel, you can be confident that Elite Spinal & Sports Care® is the right place for you!
Joint dysfunction leads to instability, degeneration and abnormal biomechanical function. Fibrosis / scar tissue can lead to mobility restrictions and altered motor control / performance. Since muscles attach onto bones to move a joint, muscle imbalance (resulting from scar tissue) can then alter movement of that joint. Without proper treatment, the cycle continues with further wear and tear on the joints, further proliferation of scar tissue, continued degradation of motor control / performance and the development of compensatory injuries.
At Elite Spinal & Sports Care, we treat ALL areas of this injury cycle to ensure the root cause of your problem is fully addressed.

Imagine keeping a runner’s body in functioning order despite endless hundred mile training weeks. Imagine running a hundred mile ultra distance race two weeks after a head on car collision. Imagine the healing of a complicated tendonopathy so severe that multiple respected medical professionals failed to diagnose it. Imagine miracles.
Imagine Dr. Justin Lau at Elite Spinal and Sport’s Care. He makes miracles happen. Dr. Lau’s incredible knowledge of the human body and biomechanics, his years of experience and education in multiple modalities and healing disciplines, his ability to problem solve and think outside of the box, along with his dedication to his patients makes miracles happen.
I am one of Dr. Lau’s miracles. He’s kept my runner’s body functioning despite countless hundred plus mile training weeks. He’s pieced me back together following a head on car collision and had me running a highly competitive ultra distance race just weeks post collision. More impressively, Dr. Lau has nursed me through a two year battle with tendonopathy, central sensitization of the nervous system, and misdiagnosis from respected medical professionals. Dr. Lau’s willingness to stand by me as a patient after so many other doctors had given up provided me with a sense of hope and ultimately led to my healing. For nearly two years I couldn’t walk without crutches, sit without pain, look forward to my future. Dr. Lau’s willingness to research new techniques, think beyond conventional treatments, and determination to heal his patient has me, now, not only walking without crutches and sitting without pain, but he has me running in my mountains again.
It is without hesitation that I highly recommend Dr. Justin Lau as a gifted, compassionate, knowledgeable, and maybe even magical healer.
