Tennis is a good example of a one-sided sport as most of the work takes place on your dominant side. When you play tennis regularly, you naturally develop larger muscles on one side of your upper back, one shoulder and arm and the dominant side leg.

In January 2015, Dr. Dan Smith moved his practice to San Rafael, after having served patients from a medical doctor's office in Larkspur. “I am enjoying my new office and its calm, healing atmosphere," he says.
Dr. Dan welcomes Marinites looking for compassionate, personalized chiropractic care.
He has special expertise in sports chiropractic and relieving chronic pain due to injury, surgery or repetitive motion.
