To maximize your strength, coordination and energy levels, and to lessen any chance of injury, keep your spine and nervous system working well with regular chiropractic care. Research has shown that chiropractic care improves athletic performance:
› Fifty athletes were divided into two groups. One group received chiropractic care while the control group did not receive care. They were tested for agility, balance, power, and speed and hand reaction time.
After 12 weeks, the chiropractic group’s improvement was 16.7% including a more than 30% improvement in reaction time. The chiro athletes reacted faster, coordinated better, executed fine movements with improved accuracy and precision, amounting to an overall better athlete.
› University baseball players were divided into a chiropractic and a non-chiropractic group. They were tested for vertical jump, standing broad jump, broad jump, muscle strength, pulse rate, electrocardiogram, blood pressure and treadmill stress testing. The chiropractic group showed significant improvement over the control group.
› 16 injured female long distance runners were placed under chiropractic care. The runners recovered quickly and seven of them later scored “personal best” performances.
