How Athletes May Benefit From Chiropractic

Sports Chiropractor PonsonbyA study published in Chiropractic: The Journal of Chiropractic Research and Clinical Investigation by Lauro and Mouch (1991) showed that athletes exhibited a 30% performance improvement after 12 weeks of chiropractic care. The participants were tested on different aspects of athletic ability such as power, reaction time, balance, agility and kinesthetic perception. Those not receiving chiropractic care showed just a 1% performance increase after six weeks. The participants under care, however, showed an 18% performance increase after six weeks.

The advantages of chiropractic for athletes may include:

  • Better concentration and focus
  • Better joint flexibility
  • Improved immunity
  • Improved posture
  • Improved recovery rates after injury
  • Increased blood circulation
  • Increased oxygen and blood flow
  • Increased range of motion
  • Reduced risk of injury
  • Reduction of headaches and migraines
  • Reduction of pain in the joints

Many athletes only turn to chiropractic care after they have been injured. It may be more beneficial, however, to incorporate it into your training routine. Whether you’re a young athlete, professional or Olympian, natural methods of healthcare can play a significant role in your performance.
