Chiropractic and the Athlete

Sports and Chiropractic have a long history together. There have been numerous studies on the benefits of chiropractic adjustments and how it relates to better performances on the field. Adjustments improve reaction time, better hand eye coordination, smaller blind spots and better range of motion, which means more speed. The most important thing is that a properly aligned spine means better balance which translates into better performance and less chance of injuries.

The importance and benefits of chiropractic care has been recognized and incorporated into almost every major, professional sports team. Most NHL, NBA, Major League Baseball and NFL teams have chiropractors either on staff or one they send their athletes to. Most individual athletes now have their own personal chiropractors as well like on the Pro tennis tour and PGA Tour.
