|Patients at our office realize that regular chiropractic care can have a tremendous boost on athletic strength and endurance. That’s why star athletes rely on chiropractic to remain in peak condition. But you don’t need to be a professional athlete to reap the accelerated athletic performance associated with chiropractic.
Optimal spinal health boosts muscle function and wards off injury. It also bolsters range of motion, coordination and balance. But that’s just the beginning.
Doctors of chiropractic also identify underlying areas of dysfunction, which prevent athletes from achieving optimal performance. These impediments include vertebral subluxations, weakened muscles and motor-control issues.
Armed with this knowledge, chiropractors “implement a multilevel treatment protocol that involves, manipulative therapy, restoration of faulty biomechanics, strengthening of weakened muscle groups and motor pattern re-education.” says researchers from Ontario’s Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (Clin Podiatr Med Surg 2001;18:351-62).
