Professional sports is a high stakes game, where even the slightest advantage can make the difference between winning and losing. Most high-level athletes are in tune with every nuance of their body and remain on the constant hunt to find ways to improve their performance.
In addition to a lot of practice and talent- many athletes have relied on chiropractic care as a “secret” ingredient to their success.
From Babe Ruth to Tom Brady- top athletes have been using chiropractic for decades.
Why it Matters:
You don’t need to be a pro athlete to desire improved health and well-being. Almost all of us are interested in decreasing pain, improving function, and increasing our strength. New research has showcased that chiropractic care may be able to help in all three of those areas.
- In a recent study, athletes had increased strength for up to 30 minutes after a chiropractic adjustment
- Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to provide more significant pain relief than commonly prescribed NSAID’s
- Even people with moderate or severe pain have experienced significant functional improvement with chiropractic
Whether you are a weekend warrior, traveling every weekend for youth sports, or just looking to enjoy a higher quality of life- chiropractic care may be right for you. Finding relief from pain, improving your functional abilities, and increasing your strength and endurance are all essentials parts of having a high quality of life. Even if you aren’t currently competing to win a world championship, you probably have a few healthcare goals in mind. Let us know what they are, we would love become part of your “secret” to success.
