Chiropractic For Athletes
Kenworthy Chiropractic now treats a number of athletes that attend the clinic on a regular basis in order to stay at the peak of fitness and maximise their performance. These include martial artists, mma, boxers, wrestlers, golfers, runners, cyclists and parkour enthusiasts amongst others. Indeed, the benefits these athletes experience is supported by a wealth of scientific research. In one study (see below) 50 athletes were divided into two groups. In a hand reaction test measuring the speed of reaction with the hand in response to a visual stimulus, the control group exhibited less than a 1% response while the chiropractic group exhibited more than an 18% response after 6 weeks. After 12 weeks the chiropractic group exhibited more than a 30% improvement. Now, that has got to give you an edge.
