Sports and Athletics
Chiropractic can give your athletic endeavors an edge. That’s why you’ll find chiropractors as “team doctors” for professional, college, high school, elementary school and public teams. That’s also why chiropractic has been used by athletic champions like Muhammad Ali, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Donovan Bailey, John McEnroe, Ivan Lendl, Evander Holyfield, Dan O’Brien, Lance Armstrong, Ian Thorpe, and countless others.
Many amateur and professional athletes wouldn’t dream of competing without first getting a chiropractor check-up. Research has even shown that on the average, chiropractic care increases athletic performance by 17%. When an athlete knows and understands the difference it can make, they gladly have regular chiropractic care.
If athletic performance is increased by this amount due to an increase in nerve function, then doesn’t it make sense that regular life performance would increase by the same amount. This means that people can simply perform more and better in their normal daily duties.
An increase in performance is why 75% of the San Francisco 49ers receives chiropractic care regularly. It is also why 16 chiropractors were present in the 1992 Olympics and why chiropractors are consistently high athletic performers.
How about you? Do you want a winning edge in sports or in life in general?
Sports injuries nearly always jar and misalign the spinal column: a blow to the ribs, legs, feet, head, shoulder or torso always radiates to the center of the body. That’s why a chiropractic check-up is needed then you are injured, regardless of the nature of the injury.
If an injury is serious enough to need medical care, the spine is almost always damaged to a greater or lesser degree. Further, medical doctors are simply not trained to locate and correct spinal subluxations. That is the realm of the doctor of chiropractic.
As superstar Joe Montana stated, “I only wish I had tried chiropractic care a few years ago when I first started having back pain, and maybe this surgery would never have happened.”
Evander Holyfield, World Heavyweight Boxing Champion, echoes the attitude of many world famous athletes: “I found that going to a chiropractor helps my performance. Once I drove 20 miles to see a chiropractor before a fight. I have to have my adjustment before I go into the ring.”
