Even if you are a weekend warrior simply playing sport for the social rewards, you can still be putting your body through huge strains. This can be from sudden impacts, awkward positions that stress your joints and muscles, or the strain involved in unpredictable & rapid changes in direction.
Your spine is the physical and neurological axis of your body and commonly suffers the most from these stresses and strains.
Chiropractic can not only help your body recover faster from the impact of competitive sport but can actually help you gain that competitive edge and avoid future injury by boosting the body’s innate recuperative powers.
Many world class and Olympic athletes, as well as professional stars and teams use regular chiropractic care to boost their performance, including: Rafael Nadal, Jorge Lorenzo, the Spanish cycling Team Coast, AC Milan, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mohammad Ali to name a few.
“You chiropractors are really miracle workers… I am very fortunate to have my own personal chiropractor. He adjusts my wife, my kids, me, everybody gets an adjustment.”
Arnold Schwarzenegger, multiple Mr Universe winner
“I don’t know how much I could improve until I started seeing a chiropractor. Since I’ve been in chiropractic, I’ve improved by leaps and bounds both mentally and physically.”
“I have been going to chiropractors for as long as I can remember. It’s as important to my training as practicing my swing.”
Tiger Woods. Professional Golf Player
Chiropractors have been selected as official attending practitioners at the Olympic Games and at national and world championships in track and field, cycling, volleyball, powerlifting, aerobics, and triathlons.
The medical director of AC Milan from 2002-2009 was Dr JP Meeserman, a chiropractor. Under his direction the team saw a 90% reduction in knee injuries in just one year.
“This year under chiropractic care there was a 43% reduction on the days lost in training due to injuries and a 70% decrease in the administration of medicine. All this and Milan also won the league championship!”
