"Chiropractic's purpose is to maintain maximum performance of all body functions." — B.J. Palmer (Developer of Chiropractic)
Over the years, Chiropractic care has become a key factor in the maintenance of health and athletic performance for athletes at all levels of sport. Why? Because regular chiropractic care helps ensure that the body is functioning and moving properly, so that athletes can put their very best into their game.
Chiropractic adjustments and postural support exercises work towards optimizing the function of the nervous system and the musculoskeletal system. Athletes have reported improvements in the following areas while under regular chiropractic care:
• Muscle strength
• Reaction time
• Injury prevention
• Recovery from injury
• Quality of life
Chiropractors are knowledgeable in the assessment and care of many common sports injuries. Furthermore, due to the fact that Chiropractors are very educated in anatomy, physiology, and exercise, they can recommend appropriate posture habits and exercises that can help prevent further injury.
Research is fast emerging about the benefits of chiropractic care for athletic performance. Additionally, numerous elite athletes in various sports attest to the fact that chiropractic care improves their performance.
