Tiger Woods, Michael Phelps, and Usain Bolt – these are just a few names of professional athletes who have used chiropractic to enhance their athletic performance.
Chiropractic can help both the professional and amateur athlete.
Dr. Sciullo has treated many different types of athletes, such as swimmers, football players, competitive weight lifters, wrestlers and gymnasts.
Here are some ways that an athlete can benefit from chiropractic.
- Prevent wear and tear on the body. Strenuous activity can lead to spinal misalignment. Reduce the effect with adjustments.
- Treat injuries naturally, without drugs. Avoid treatment that could lead to a risk of dependency or side effects.
- Improve performance with preventative treatment. By keeping your body in alignment, you can avoid some minor injuries that could hamper your performance.
- Reduce joint pain and muscle soreness post-activity. Spinal adjustments can increase your flexibility, which also helps to reduce injury.
Whether you’re competing at a professional level or a weekend warrior, chiropractic may be a positive addition to your sports performance strategy.
