Athletic Performance and Recovery

Athletic performance and chiropractic care. By measuring heart rate variability, scientists are working on research projects that show chiropractic's effect on the autonomic nervous system.   The autonomic nervous system is responsible in large part for the physiological adaptations that occur as a result of training. The autonomic nervous system plays a large role in the athletes recovery from training sessions and competition. The correction of spinal subluxations in athletes by the chiropractor would assist in post training / competition recovery and could lead to enhanced performance.
