Chiropractic Care and Sports Performance

Athletes around the world spend millions of dollars every year on ways, methods and products to enhance sports performance. Some athletes risk their health and their lives using methods to enhance performance by using high doses of herbal supplements, medications, hormone therapy and steroid use.  Increasing sports performance is a serious science as athletes are constantly looking for the competitive edge. Chiropractic care is a proven 100% natural sports performance enhancement method. Care by the chiropractor balances musculature in the body, increases range of motion and speeds recovery from workouts and competitions.  In addition, research has shown that chiropractic care can help increase VO2 oxygen levels and improve autonomic nervous system function, important factors in sports performance and recovery.  Lastly, a research study showed that athletes under regular chiropractic care when skill tested and compared to athletes not under regular chiropractic care, were able to perform designated athletic skills at a 16.2% higher rate than the athletes not under care by the chiropractor.
