No matter what sport you play or compete in, every single one can be made safer and with more effective results by simply making sure your body is in proper alignment. Having a great chiropractor is key if you want to reach your potential.
Many professional athletes use chiropractic care to recover from injuries on and off the field. A new study done on the efficacy of chiropractic shows that can also improve athletic performance. The study was done on a group of 18 professional judo athletes in Brazil.
50% of the group received chiropractic adjustments while the others did not. Grip strength was then measured. Both groups maintained the exact same training schedule and exercises, yet the group receiving chiropractic faired far better.
In fact, after only three treatments the group receiving chiropractic showed an improvement in grip strength of 11% on the left side and 17% on the right side. (most were right handed). The other group only improves 4% on the left side and 6% on right side. This is because chiropractic helps improve and support nervous system function. In turn, improved nerve function can lead to stronger muscles and in this case, grip strength.
No matter if you are looking to heal from an injury, prevent a future one, or increase your performance chiropractic can play a major role in keeping you healthy and active.
You don’t have to be a professional athlete to experience the benefit of chiropractic care. These gentle adjustments work for those of all ages from newborn to seniors helping to keep them active, healthy, and feeling their very best.
