Athletes and Chiropractic

Pop quiz: Which one of the following athletes sees a chiropractor regularly?

Tiger Woods, Lance Armstrong, Emmit Smith

Answer: You guessed it… all of them.

Tiger Woods has his chiropractor with him at every tour event.  Lance Armstrong had his chiropractor with him at every race.  Emmit Smith has stated many times that he would have had to quit playing football years earlier without regular chiropractic care.

Think about this: If you were a professional athlete, wouldn’t you do everything you could to keep healthy and perform at your best?  Wouldn’t you take every measure to recover quickly from injuries and daily abuses that your body endures?  That’s where chiropractic comes in.

Chiropractors are experts in joint function.  By detecting and correcting fixation (loss of proper motion) in joints, chiropractors help athletes recover quickly from many injuries.  Professional athletes do not want to simply cover up symptoms with drugs or suffer permanent scarring associated with unnecessary surgery.  Neither should you.

The next time you have back or neck pain, roll your ankle, tweak a shoulder, or strain an elbow or knee, see a chiropractor, who is trained to specifically correct the alignment of your joints so you can heal faster, perform better, and stay active longer.
