I bet it wouldn’t surprise you that most golfers and pro athletes receive chiropractic care. They need to keep their bodies at optimum function. They all enlist a chiropractor to be a part of their team.
Golf involves a lot of torso and hip mobility. From the back swing to the follow through, you need power in your legs, hips, back and arms. Without it, your game will suffer and potentially your body.
You may have seen those horrible sports injuries on TV and I’m sure a large handful of us have even experienced some sort of sports related injury before. Chiropractors are great sports doctors because of the intensive orthopedic training they receive. A sports chiropractor usually works with a physical trainer or team doctor to provide the best care for the athletes.
Maintaining Peak Performance
Many of the top athletes today use a sports chiropractor to maintain their peak performance. Getting regular adjustments, keeping muscles in balance, and our nervous system functioning at max capacity is exactly what the athlete needs to take their game to the next level. Proper biomechanical structure allows for the athlete to function at their very best.
