Athletes have been benefiting from chiropractic care for many years. Athletes of all types, from “weekend warriors” to world-class athletes, utilize chiropractic because it is a natural method to better health and performance.
Athletes are under a tremendous amount of stress to perform and excel in sports, and chiropractic helps the body to adapt and respond quickly to any changes in their environment as an athlete. When the spinal column is brought into balance and alignment, the body’s nervous system and body bio-mechanics are really maximized at that point. In addition to that, postural strength and coordination are essential for injury prevention and sports performance.
I use a reference to an exercise physiologist PhD. His name is Sean Atkins. He says he estimates that at least 90% of world-class athletes use chiropractic on a regular basis to prevent injuries and to improve their performance. Obviously, there are a lot of benefits to professional athletes, world-class athletes and even “weekend warriors” from using chiropractic.
