Sport & injury

Exercise physiologist Sean Atkins, PhD, estimates that in excess of 90% top class athletes use chiropractic care on a regular basis to prevent injury and improve performance. [7]

Research has shown that chiropractic treatment can improve athletic performance by as much as 16.7% over a two week period. [8] The report also concluded that properly aligned athletes react faster, coordinate better, execute fine movements with improved accuracy and precision.

High-impact athletes

Athletes competing in MMA, Rugby, Football, and Ballet find that chiropractic treatment can improve performance and flexibility whilst lowering the risk of injury.

Low-impact athletes

Golfers, tennis players and cyclists have found that routine adjustments can help to relieve the strain they place upon their bodies.
