Does your neighborhood sports team need a chiropractor?
Chiropractic can give your athletic endeavors an edge.
That's why you'll find chiropractors as "team doctors" for professional, college, high school, junior high and elementary school football, basketball, baseball, ice-hockey, handball, rugby, soccer and weightlifting teams. That's also why chiropractic has been used by champions: Tim Witherspoon, Ken Norton and Evander Holyfield of boxing; Ivan Lendl, Martina Navratilova and John McEnroe of tennis; Marcello Angelini and Daniela Buson of ballet; plus world class bikers, golfers and even racing car drivers.
Many amateur and professional athletes wouldn't dream of competing without first getting a chiropractic spinal checkup.
That's why 75 percent of the San Francisco 49ers received chiropractic care the day they played-and won-the SuperBowl. And that is also why 16 chiropractors from 12 countries were present at the Olympics.
How about you? Want that winning edge? A little more balance? A little more lightness to your step? Try a chiropractic "shaping up" adjustment at our office.
Sports injuries nearly always jar and misalign the spinal column: a blow to the ribs, legs, feet, head, shoulder or torso always radiates to the center of the body-that's why a chiropractic checkup is needed when you are injured, regardless of the nature of the injury. Our chiropractic care is needed, in fact, even when medical procedures may also be necessary.
Why? If an injury is serious enough to need medical care, the spine is almost always damaged to a greater or lesser degree. Further, medical doctors are simply not trained to locate and correct spinal subluxations-that is the realm of our chiropractors.
As superstar Joe Montana stated, "I only wish I had tried chiropractic care a few years ago when I first started having back pain, and maybe this surgery would never have happened."
Evander Holyfield, World Heavy-weight Boxing Champion, echoes the attitude of many world-famous athletes: "I found that going to a chiropractor helps my performance. Once I drove 20 miles to see a chiropractor before a fight. I have to have my adjustment before I go into the ring."
