Why Athletes Use Chiropractic

Published March 22nd, 2022 by Dr. Daner

Chiropractic care can benefit anyone’s health and well-being, but for some it can be particularly beneficial. . While this is not to say that not everyone should receive chiropractic care, it does affect those who are extremely physically active. One group that we want to talk about today are athletes. These men and women stress their bodies so much in practice, games, and competition, and they need to make sure everything is in working order and functioning at maximum potential. Discover how sports chiropractic for athletes and help prevent injury.

Sports Chiropractic for Athletes

My background is in sports chiropractic, so I can speak to how it affects athletes. I like to look at it like an analogy to a sports car when explaining it to my athletic patients. A Ferrari will always run great, fast etc. However, when one owns a Ferrari meant for high performance, the owners always check to ensure everything is "just right". Alignment, spark plugs, high-quality gas, etc. It is the same with athletes. An athlete always has an advantage over someone who is not… but imagine if everything is fine-tuned, aligned and functioning the right way. Athletes who are under chiropractic care, in my experience, perform better, function better, feel better, and HEAL FASTER. This is a huge deal because obviously, with athletic competition comes unavoidable injury. I have heard it time and time again from patients: "chiropractic helped me heal faster so I could get back on the field faster." Many high profile athletes, such as Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan and Tom Brady have publicly stressed how instrumental chiropractic care has been to their careers, both from a playing standpoint and recovery.
