Chiropractic & Athletes
Both professional and recreational athletes understand the limitations that injuries can place on training and sport performance. Research has shown that chiropractic can help the body heal as efficiently as possible, allowing athletes to recover more quickly from injuries when they arise. There is also data to suggest that injuries may be prevented in athletes under regular chiropractic care versus athletes who do not receive chiropractic.
Chiropractors are specially trained to examine patients for the presence of spinal miaslignments, called “vertebral subluxations”. If detected, chiropractors will use safe and effective chiropractic adjustments to restore proper spinal movement, correct subluxations, and remove nervous system interference. Chiropractors working with athletes may also incorporate other methods of care, such as rehabilitation, sport specific training, or NKT depending on the specific requirements of the athlete.
Thousands of professional athletes use chiropractors on a regular basis to help achieve peak performance. Nearly every NBA, NFL, NHL, and MLB team has a chiropractor on staff or works closely with off-site chiropractors to help ensure their athletes stay performing at their best. “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,” says Tom Brady, New England Patriots quarterback and Super Bowl Champion & MVP.

- Experience fewer injuries
- Recover more quickly from injuries
- Often see a performance boost
