Athletes, both professional and amateur, are increasingly turning to Chiropractic care to help them relieve pain and compete at their highest level. Chiropractors are currently associated with nearly every single professional sporting team in North America and many elite professionals in the world have attested their performance to Chiropractic including Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Usain Bolt, Jerry Rice, Michael Phelps, Sidney Crosby and Wayne Gretzky.
The human body is an amazing machine designed to complete complex movements in a simple and defined way. Dysfunctional movement patterns decrease performance by forcing particular muscles and joints to work harder than they are designed for leading to decreased strength, quicker fatigue, and increased injury. Chiropractic treatment and spinal manipulation work to remove negative compensations, restore proper movement patterns, and have also been shown to increase the voluntary strength of your muscle contraction, increase muscle activation, and improve stability allowing you to train compete harder.
