CHIROPRACTIC THE ATHLETE’S CHOICE
For the athlete patient, chiropractic care is not only about treating injuries, but also for aiding in recovery and positively impacting athletic performance. Chiropractic takes a non-invasive, drug-free approach to healthcare, a position that is now highly regarded among health minded athletes. Chiropractic care is particularly valuable for pain management, and offers athletes highly effective solutions for achieving optimal performance without the use of prescription drugs. From the professional athlete, to the Olympian, to the weekend warrior, chiropractic can help them all.
Many pro athletes attribute chiropractic as the key to their success. For instance, this year’s Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers is the son of a chiropractor and has been adjusted since birth. Other football players who use chiropractic are Jerry Rice, Joe Montana, and Tom Brady and many others. Cyclist Lance Armstrong once said “the team wasn’t just riders….the most important man on the team may have been the chiropractor”.
If you wish to perform better, think about making chiropractic part of your training. Every year I treat patients who run in the 5/3 Riverbank Run. No one wants to perform at anything less than their best, so I recommend anyone wanting to improve their athletic performance to get his/her spine checked regularly.
