athletes and chiropractic

Why do teenage and amateur athletes get adjusted and enjoy Chiropractic care so much? The same reason that professional athletes like Emmitt Smith of the Dallas Cowboys, John Smoltz of the Atlanta Braves, and Olympic Gold Medallist and World’s Greatest Athlete Dan O’Brien enjoy regular Chiropractic care.

 

Chiropractic helps athletes improve their athletic performance, heal quicker from injuries, increase flexibility and stamina, and much more.

  1. Improve Athletic Performance.

If you had a race car would you make sure your front end was aligned properly before a big race?
Of course you would because you know that when your car is aligned properly it will run faster, more efficiently, and with less strain on the car’s structure. This is how Chiropractic care relates to your body and athletics. And there’s more.
To perform at your peak, your body must receive signals from your brain, and your brain must get messages from your body.
Have you ever been on a cell phone when there was static on the line? Interference over your nerve pathways has the same effect. It reduces the communication between your brain and your body and affects your ability to perform at your best.
Chiropractic care removes this interference and keeps it out of your life through specific Chiropractic adjustments.

 

No wonder Dan O’Brien credits Chiropractic for helping him win the Olympic Gold Medal.

  1. Heal quicker from injuries.

People heal quicker from injuries, sickness, and everything else when they have good nerve supply from their brain to their body and back again. This is what Chiropractic does!

There are countless personal experiences from people who have limped into chiropractic offices with a sports or athletic injury, and leaped out to participate in their activity the next day.
While not every person who goes to a Chiropractor has this kind of experience, because it depends on the extent of the injury, many people certainly do.
Why do you think Chiropractic has been one of the fastest growing health professions over the last decade? Chiropractic works!

3. Improve Flexibility & Stamina

One particular study tested two groups of athletes in training. The
first group trained without receiving Chiropractic care. The second group trained and received ongoing Chiropractic care.
As you would expect, both groups improved. However; after 12 weeks, there was a substantial difference in their results.
The group that was not under Chiropractic care showed a 4.5% improvement
while the Chiropractic group showed a 16.7% improvement after 12 weeks.

No wonder Evander Holyfield gets regular Chiropractic care during
his training, as well as before and after each fight.

If you’re involved in sports, don’t you think it’s time you were examined by a Chiropractor to see if Chiropractic could make a difference for you?
Everyone can benefit from Chiropractic Care.
Help us let everyone know about it!
