Athletes from many sports use chiropractic care to help improve their performance. Chiropractic procedures are safe and effective in maximally benefiting an athlete- professional or amateur. Chiropractic care makes “adjustments” to the spine which are commonly known to help with back pain, but additionally, they help your nervous system, maximize joint mechanics, and improve your overall health.
Major league baseball season is around the corner. Baseball can seem like a gentlemanly sport when compared to football and hockey, but the incidence of injury can be quite high. Many MLB teams have a team Chiropractor where regular chiropractic care provides baseball players with proper spinal function and balance to reduce the risk of spine-related injuries, enhance recovery time, and improve overall performance.
With chiropractic care, players report that they feel better and have better endurance. Their body mechanics are significantly improved, enabling better pitching, hitting, and throwing. The team Chiropractor for the San Francisco Giants was on the mound celebrating with the team during their 2010 World Series victory as it was said that chiropractic care was very much part of their success that year.
Golfers use chiropractic to maintain a strong foundation in the body. The pelvis is where most of the power is created. The lower body and pelvis create torque during the swing, while the upper body acts like a whip. Without that strong foundation on the bottom half and flexibility on the top, the golfer’s swing will suffer.
A chiropractic adjustment can re-align the lower back and improve the muscle action of the lower body. The combination of chiropractic treatment and core stability training can improve a golfer’s game considerably. Tiger Woods has said,” I’ve been going to chiropractors for as long as I can remember. It’s as important to my training as practicing my swing.”
Michael Jordan, six time NBA Champion, six time Final MVP, and five time NBA MVP, has said of chiropractic, “I didn’t know how much I could improve until I started seeing a Chiropractor. Since I’ve been in chiropractic, I’ve improved by leaps and bounds, both mentally and physically.”
Chiropractic care can give an athlete a competitive advantage in whatever sport they participate in. It helps to enhance endurance levels, assist in the recovery from many structural injuries, and achieve overall peak performance. By including chiropractic into an athlete’s regular health practices, one is able to maximize training and optimize functional balance and skill.
Many avoidable injuries sideline professional athletes. Many athletes continue to compete at less than peak efficiency, simply because their structural system is not in balance. Coaches and their athletes are realizing that pain killing drugs, muscle relaxers, and cortisone injections are not the answer to injury. Medications merely cover up the symptoms and may make the injury more serious or interfere with the healing process
The key to a successful team and an individual athlete is injury prevention. This is true for the professional or amateur. Keep your spine in line and your nervous system in balance.

Try Chiropractic and Other Conservative Methods First
An article in the Journal of the American Medical Association suggests that patients try chiropractic and other more conservative types of treatment for their back pain. In many cases, pain can be alleviated without the use of unnecessary drugs or surgery, so it makes sense to exhaust conservative options first,” said ACA President Keith Overland, DC.
Chiropractic is Cost Effective and Clinically Effective
“Research confirms that the services provided by chiropractic physicians are not only clinically effective but also cost-effective, so taking a more conservative approach at the onset of low back pain can also potentially save both patients and the health care system money down the line,” he added.
The article, part of JAMA’s Patient Page public education series, explains that the back is made up of bones, nerves, muscles and other soft tissues such as ligaments and tendons that support posture and give the body flexibility. Back pain can be caused by problems with any of the structures in the back.
Chiropractic Well Suited To Manage Back Pain
As neuromusculoskeletal experts, chiropractic physicians are particularly well suited to manage and help prevent low back pain.
