Active people are physically and emotionally different from sedentary ones. Most physicians have not had special training in sports medicine or rehabilitation. Consequently, even outstanding physicians who don’t treat athletes regularly often make mistakes in the diagnosis and treatment of athletes’ neuromusculoskeletal problems.1
Sports chiropractic and chiropractic rehabilitation have received a considerable amount of attention in recent years.
Some of the reasons for the increased awareness and interest are the publicity afforded the injuries of professional athletes; the injuries resulting from the increased participation by individuals in physical fitness and recreational athletics; and the government’s role in encouraging physical fitness through the president’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports.2
- He found that athletes who underwent regular chiropractic care enjoyed aÂ 10% improvement in their overall performance time and resultsÂ compared to athletes who were not under chiropractic care.
Just think about it. A 10% improvement in performance is a HUGE AMOUNT for an athlete or for anyone. It can mean the difference between running a 10 second hundred meter dash or an 11 second hundred meter dash… and for a runner that’s the difference between winning the race versus not even making the team.
