It's spring time: the local pool is open, the kids are on their bikes and it's time to get sporty once again.


We recently attended the Open Day for Drummoyne Swimming Club and who did we run into? Olympic champion James Magnussen!

Our Water Polo Sponsorship

The Drummoyne Water Polo Club have approx. 300 players throughout their high performance, development and social ranks.


They are such a nice bunch of people to associate with. It has been my pleasure to help out a little through chiropractic sponsorship of several of their players. 


I wrote to the club recently and informed them of ways I can assist people, especially those who struggle with participating in the sport of their choice because of injury or pain.

The Drummoyne Devils Compete at the Rio Olympics

The following summary highlights Lyons Road Family Chiro's association with the Drummoyne Water Polo Club and mentions the Drummoyne Devil's participation at the Rio Olympics!


"Hi Paul,


On behalf of Drummoyne Water Polo Club, I'd like to thank you for being a cap sponsor for our club. Your support helps make it possible for our Men's and Women's senior teams to participate in National League – Australia's premier water polo competition.


As you may know, the Drummoyne Devils have three Olympians at Rio: Aidan Roach, Mitch Emery and Tyler Martin. All three have played National League for many seasons and it's been terrific grounding for them in playing in front of a global audience!"

Recap: How does Chiropractic help Sports Injury?

Remember the 3 P's

If you want to improve your sports performance, consider chiropractic. Chiropractic works to reduce pain, improve posture and boost performance: otherwise known as the 3 P's. Let me explain this in more detail.

  • Reduce Pain – Chiropractors are spine health care experts and are known for managing feelings of pain and discomfort, especially along the spinal column.
  • Improve Posture – Your posture, consisting of your form and influencing your function, determines how well your body performs. A strong posture with a natural alignment will have better biomechanics than a weaker posture with misalignments.
  • Boost Performance – By improving biomechanics and optimising posture, athletes can boost their sporting performance.

Our clinic proudly serves Drummoyne, Five Dock, Haberfield, Russell Lea and surrounds. If you think we may help you, please get in touch today.
