Body builders and fitness professionals have been using chiropractic in order to stay healthy and fit. Should you be getting adjusted....and why? In addition to serving athletes at the 2009 World Games in Taiwan, in 2010 Chiropractic was fully integrated in caring for athletes at the Olympic games. 77% of the NFL use chiropractic and have one on staff. Baseball pro 's like Mark Texiera use them all the time. Most professional teams employ chiropractors. Long term chiropractic advocate Arnold Schwarzenegger has used chiropractic long before it was in vogue. In the 1930's, Dr. Erle Painter, DC was Babe Ruth's chiropractor and worked on the NY Yankees.
Why is chiropractic so popular among athletes?
Chiropractic helps to improve and enhance athletic performance and Chiropractic helps keep athletes on the field and helps to prevent minor injuries from becoming major ones.
Fifty athletes were divided into two groups. One group received chiropractic care while the control group did not receive care while the control group did not receive care. They were tested for agility, balance, power, speed and hand reaction time. After 12 weeks, the chiropractic group's improvement was 16.7% including a more then 30% improvement in reaction time! Journal of Chiropractic Research and Clinical Investigations 1991;6(4):84-87
This is only one of many studies on chiropractic and sports enhancement.
Hey coach's, need a sports doctor for your team? Many doctors of chiropractic get involved with their local little league, neighborhood and school teams. Why not ask your chiropractor if he or she might be interested in providing chiropractic care to your athletes or sponsoring a team?
Yours in health,

I have been a chiropractor for since 1996 but an athlete since I played baseball with the boys in the early pee wee leagues. I continued with sports throughout my high school career: softball, basketball, skiing and competitive horseback riding. In chiropractic school I was introduced to functional exercise and structural rehabilitation and continue to do this type of exercise to this day with great success.
