Blog #86 Chiropractic, Strong Balance and Sports Success
Many professional sports teams have their own chiropractors, who they rely on for help with injury repair and also for overall improved performance. Most of the football teams in the U. S., including the top teams – the Pittsburgh Steelers, New England Patriots, Dallas Cowboys, and San Francisco 49ers all have their own chiropractors, as do many other professional teams and individuals. This includes basketball, golf, softball, hockey, extreme snowboarding, mixed martial arts, and more.
Many teams have chiropractors who can attend to players on the sidelines during games. These chiropractic doctors not only adjust the players, they also recommend exercises and techniques specific to each sport. These techniques and exercises help players improve balance and performance, minimize injuries, and avoid many injuries completely. High profile players, such as Tiger Woods, Tom Brady, and Michael Jordan regularly use chiropractic care and say that it has helped them greatly improve their games.
Most of us do not participate in highly demanding sports disciplines, but we do walk, run, lift, climb, and sometimes play sports, but under less demanding conditions than do professionals. Chiropractic care, including both adjustments and therapeutic exercises can help everyone improve our balance, stability, endurance, and recovery time.
Chiropractic care can address imbalances and injuries to knees, shoulders, wrists and ankles, can help alleviate or eliminate headaches, and, of course can help stabilize and heal the spine and the core. Using chiropractic care preventatively is a wise choice, since this can help prevent injuries and improve both physical and mental functioning. Many of my patients, who are well into their sixties, seventies and even eighties, attribute their continued high-level functioning to chiropractic and acupuncture care, along with other important aspects of self-care, such as high quality nutrition, sufficient rest, and stress management and reduction.
