Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Athletes
Athletes undertaking rigorous fitness regimes often push their bodies to the limit. Since their performance is based on the health and strength of their body, many need regular chiropractic and massage sessions to stay in shape and keep performing to their fullest potential.
According to a study published in Chiropractic: The Journal of Chiropractic Research and Clinical Investigation, athletes exhibited a 30% improvement in performance after 12 weeks of chiropractic treatment. They were tested on several aspects of athletic ability including kinesthetic perception, power, reaction time, agility and balance.
Many professional athletes undergo treatments before, during and after games. According to PracticalChiro.com, athletes including Tiger Woods, Lance Armstrong and Barry Bonds all receive treatments from sports chiropractors to improve performance and recovery properly.
Key Benefits of Chiropractic Treatments for Athletes
In addition to improving performance, ongoing chiropractic therapy offers additional health and wellness benefits.
- Improved posture
- Advanced hip flexor and shoulder therapy
- Increased range of motion

- Better focus and concentration
- Reduction of migraines or severe headaches
- Increased blood circulation
- Better joint flexibility
- Reduced risk of injury
- Increased blood and oxygen flow throughout the body

Many athletes only turn to chiropractors after they have been injured but it may be more beneficial to incorporate chiropractic therapy into the weekly training routine.
