studies indicate that chiropractic care may improve athletic performance by 16.7%
The providers in our office are specialists in recognizing minor changes in joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves – all the structures utilized when participating in athletic pursuits. This kind of early detection is essential for any athlete who wants to perform at the peak of their ability, and avoid the common over use injuries that sideline many athletes.
The number of professional sports teams that include chiropractors, massage therapists and acupuncturists are too numerous to list, but it is almost a foregone conclusion that these disciplines would be included in the team of healthcare specialists taking care of professional athletes. Below are quotes from some of the most recognizable athletes who have defined greatness in their chosen athletic field.
Emmitt Smith, Running Back – Superbowl Champion and MVP
"I found a specialist that's really good in balancing out my body to make sure my hips are rotated right, and my body is functioning properly...if you take advantage of the health care, balance your body back out, put it back where it's supposed to be, you function better, and you recover faster. "
Jerry Rice, Wide Receiver – Superbowl Champion and MVP
"I did a lot of things to stay in the game, but regular visits to my chiropractor were among the most important."
Dan O'Brien, 1996 Gold Medalist Decathlon
"If not for chiropractic, I would not have won the gold medal."
Joe Montana, Quarterback – Superbowl Champion and MVP
"I only wish I had tried chiropractic a few years ago when I first started having back pain and maybe surgery would have never happened - now we know that chiropractic is not just for bad backs or necks. It's about prevention, so your body can function at optimum health."
Tom Brady, Quarterback – Superbowl Champion and MVP
"Chiropractic just makes you feel so much better. When I walk out of the clinic, I feel like I’m about three inches taller and everything’s in place. And as long as I see the chiropractor, I feel like I’m one step ahead of the game."
