Chiropractic tools can give a winning edge

Whether you play for the Cleveland Indians, participate on your local school team, or are a person who loves to be active, there are a few things that you should know to stay at the top of your game! The secret to getting to the top and staying there is "Chiropractic."

Chiropractic is a growing part of athletes looking to reach peak performance. Exercise physiologist Sean Atkins said in an article in Pathways to Family Wellness magazine, “I would estimate that in excess of 90% of all world-class athletes use Chiropractic care to prevent injuries and to increase their performance potential.” 

Chiropractic helps to improve function by making sure that our bodies are free of interference physically, chemically and emotionally. Our physical bodies are so important to optimal health and by making sure our bodies are in the proper alignment peak athletic performance is attainable. Chemically our bodies need to be supported with the proper nutrients and foods in order to maintain healing and function while getting the most out of every sprint, bike ride and golf outing. Emotional health is often overlooked but is critical within athletes because stress can manifest itself into our physical bodies. 

By addressing areas that are stopping us from achieving maximum success physically, chemically and emotionally, Chiropractic can help get us to the next level. Some of the athletes that promote Chiropractic include Usain Bolt, Sidney Crosby, Emmitt Smith, Jerry Rice and many more.   

If you are looking to get the most out of your athletic performance I encourage you to start with "move well, eat well and think well." Motion is the key to life, and I encourage you to do some sort of physical activity for at least 20 minutes a day. Eating well includes focusing on nutrient-rich foods that help support your body during rigorous physical activity and reducing processed foods high in artificial additives. Thinking well is as simple as having a positive outlook on life no matter if you are on the bench or nursing a shoulder injury. If you have been searching for the winning edge Chiropractic can help propel you to the next level.
