Sponsored athletes programme
It’s no surprise that many world-class athletes use chiropractic care to prevent injuries and increase their performance potential. Athletes (past and present) such as Usain Bolt, Michael Jordan, Rhonda Rousey and Arnold Schwarzenegger all received chiropractic care during their athletic careers and have publicly praised their chiropractors for supporting them in their sport.
But whether you consider yourself a serious athlete or someone who exercises every now and then, one thing is true – chiropractic care can help improve your performance.
The state of your spine and nervous system will affect how you perform. Structure dictates function, and better structures will give better chance at functioning at a higher level. Effective and timely chiropractic care may play a key role in improving the function of the spine and nervous system. This in turn may aid in the successful preparation for athletic events and can speed up recovery afterwards.
Chiropractic Care may:
Increase flexibility and improve movement
Improve strength and stability
help avoid drugs and surgery
Improve body awareness
Create better balance
