Heightened Body Awareness
Because athletes are so active and participate in high impact sports, they tend to be more prone to injury. Adjustments restore function to the body and nervous system.
In a study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Psychological Therapeutics, individuals who received chiropractic care noticed a nearly 10% improvement in movement and response time compared to those not under chiropractic care.
Chiropractic care restores balance to your entire body through correcting nervous system disturbances and allowing signals to flow freely between the brain and the body.
When joints and spinal bones are in proper alignment, you’re able to maneuver with ease. For athletes flexibility is crucial!
