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.
Hundreds of Olympic athletes also recognize the importance of regular chiropractic care to gain that competitive edge they need when competing at the highest level.
Injury recovery and prevention
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.
Athletes are always looking for a competitive edge; many have found that extra boost with chiropractic.
Several studies have demonstrated enhanced athletic performance across a wide variety of disciplines for athletes under chiropractic care.
Based on the wide array of performance outcomes reported with chiropractic, it is clear that the overall effect of having a nervous system clear of interference allows the body to perform at its best,regardless of the specific sport requirements.
Athletes UNDER REGULAR chiropractic care:
Experience fewer injuries
Recover more quickly from injuries
Often see a performance boost
Engage in more effective training
Perform at their very best
“I would estimate that in excess of 90% of all world-class athletes use Chiropractic to prevent injuries and to increase their performance potential.”

“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, feel like I’m one step ahead of the game.”
