When the Human Body does Inhuman Things!
Chiropractic care has become the competitive advantage that many athletes are now seeking. When your body is in better alignment, your nervous system is finely tuned.
This can lead to improved athletic performance, improved range of motion, better flexibility, increased blood flow, fewer injuries and quicker recovery.
In addition, chiropractic adjustments help when treating injuries from high-impact sports such as wrestling, football, and hockey, soccer, skiing as well as others.
A research study conducted by Drs. Anthony Lauro and Brian Mouch, published in the journal of Chiropractic research and
Clinical Investigation, 1991, indicated chiropractic care might improve athletic performance by as much as 16.7% over a two week period.
The report also concluded that subluxation-free athletes react faster, coordinate better, execute fine movements with improved accuracy and precision, amounting to an overall better athlete.
Many high school, college, and professional athletes are increasingly turning to chiropractic care to help them relieve pain and stay fit. Many schools and professional teams are now establish direct relationships with chiropractic physicians and some even have one on their medical staff.
