Well done to Ian Allen – Long Jump European Masters Bronze Medallist 2018
Chiropractors have been giving athletes the edge in sports for some time. Chiropractors are commonly found to be “team doctors” for many professional and school teams. Many successful athletes have banked on chiropractic care to enhance performance and health ie: Bradley Wiggins, Usain Bolt, Tiger Woods, and countless others.
Many amateur and professional athletes wouldn’t compete without first seeing their chiropractor. Research has shown that on average, chiropractic care increases athletic performance by 17%, enhancing strength, flexibility, speed and coordination. When an athlete understands the difference it can make, they gladly have regular chiropractic care.
What is the difference between an Olympic Athlete and you?
Fundamentally you are made of the same stuff. So, if athletic performance is increased by this amount due to an improvement 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 better in their normal daily activities .
Sports injuries jar and misalign the spinal column. That’s why a chiropractic check-up is needed when you are injured, regardless of the nature of the injury. But don’t forget that poor posture, lack of movement for periods of time and stress can be equally taxing on your spine.
Finally, if an injury is serious enough to need medical care, the spine is almost always damaged as well. Medical doctors are simply not trained to locate and correct spinal subluxations. That is the realm of the doctor of chiropractic. If you are interested in seeing how Living Strong Chiropractic can give you the edge in your chosen sport or life, we would love to work with you.
