Chiropractic and the Athlete
Regular chiropractic care has shown in clinical trials to reduce the incidence of injury in competitive athletes as well as reduce recovery times for those that do become injured. Other clinical trials have demonstrated an improvement in aerobic function, range of motion and strength after receiving chiropractic care.
Have you ever wondered why so many professional and elite amateur athletes get chiropractic care regularly, and not just when they have pain or an injury? It’s because chiropractic care has been proven to keep the body healthy, pain-free, and functioning at optimal levels. Professional athletes — golfers, tennis players, football, basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer, rugby — have enough money to choose whatever treatments they want. And they choose chiropractic.
Here’s what NFL football players have to say about their sports chiropractor:
” …as long as I see the chiropractor, I feel like I’m one step ahead of the game.” – Tom Brady, New England Patriots ~ 3 time Super Bowl Champion, 2 time Super Bowl MVP, and 2011 NFL Player of the Year.
“Those are the guys that put me on the field when I didn’t think I had a chance to be on the field. These are professionals, and God put them in my life for a reason.” – Terrell Owens, NFL Wide Receiver
“I believe in chiropractic, and I know it works. You probably know about my long and successful career in football. I’m flattered by the testimonials to my durability. Football is a very rough and vigorous sport. Chiropractic was the key to keeping me in the game.”- Jerry Rice, Wide Receiver ~ 3 time Super Bowl Champion and Super Bowl MVP
