    Why Athletes Depend on Chiropractors

    Why Athletes Depend on Chiropractors

    The numbers don’t lie: 90 percent of the world’s top athletes rely on chiropractors to enhance their performance and avoid injuries. In fact, all teams in the NFL have a chiropractor on speed dial. “I feel like I’m about three inches taller,” New England Patriot Tom Brady has said about his chiropractic sessions. From the active release technique of massage, stretching and moving to electrical muscle stimulation, and trigger-point activation through acupuncture, chiropractors have an arsenal of tools to help athletes accomplish the following:

    Restore function, reduce pain. The spine literally is the backbone of an athlete’s body and their power, knitting joints, muscles, nerves, discs, and ligaments into a mighty whole. But the cumulative effects of impact during athletics can subtly interfere with spinal movement and alignment, resulting in strain unduly placed on the subordinate structures. When this disruption to the system occurs, athletic performance declines. One expert explains that a soccer ball traveling at 70 miles per hour packs the same impact as a punch by Muhammad Ali. Regular chiropractic care to adjust the spine will reverse damage, reduce irritation in between vertebrae, and restore the backbone to its optimum, and intended, function. As a popular e-card meme reads: “Take care of your body; there’s no such thing as a spine transplant.”

    Enhance power while preventing injury. Shoulder pain? Ankle issues? Trick knee? No matter which injuries need addressing, athletes under the care of a trusted chiropractor report improved range of motion, more flexibility, diminished pain, and increased blood flow—resulting in a shorter healing time for injuries.

    Embrace drug-free, non-invasive remedies. Natural remedies that work with the body, not against it, are at the heart of chiropractic care. Painkilling drugs have sobering side effects, including the potential for addiction seen in our nation’s opioid epidemic. Invasive surgery can sideline an athlete, costing him precious time and possibly his career.

    Athletes who take their career seriously turn to chiropractors to keep them safe, pain-free, and fully functional.
