Around 90% of world-class athletes use chiropractic care to increase performance and prevent injuries, according to the American Chiropractic Association. In the NFL, every team has a team chiropractor, and US Olympic athletes began using chiropractors in the 1970s. What have these athletes discovered that can help others who engage in sports keep their bodies in tip-top shape? Chiropractic care can address and treat muscle imbalances, spinal misalignments and range of motion problems very early in their occurrence, way before it would be severe enough to have surgical correction. By using chiropractic care, an athlete can maximize performance while continuing to participate in the sport they enjoy.
