Whether you are an athletes or an all-round active person, regular chiropractic care can help you to perform better and reduce your chance of sport injury.
Chiropractors are musuloskeletal expert that are trained to identify movement deficit and remedy the restricted joints and muscles. After a thorough assessment, chiropractors will address the problematic joints with ‘adjustments’, high velocity and low amplitude thrusts to restore the movement of the joints.
Chiropractic cares have been well documented scientifically in the improvement of our body performance and injury prevention:
1. A 2012 study by the National University of Health Sciences, demonstrated a 15% increase in grip strength for judo athletes who underwent chiropractic treatment, compared to those who did not. To find out more about the study, click here.
