Sports and Chiropractic Care
Improve Your Game Through Chiropractic Care
Our patients at Kempsville Chiropractic are well aware that chiropractic is not just for aches and pains. Chiropractic care is about achieving your optimal health and maximizing your performance. But there are many people out there that do not know what chiropractic is truly about! In fact many professional athletes use chiropractic on a regular basis, not for injuries or pain, but to maximize their abilities and function at their peak performance.
In fact, all 32 professional NFL teams have chiropractors on staff, and many professional athletes speak outwardly about their experiences with chiropractic care. 2010 NFL Hall of Fame inductee Jerry Rice is a spokesperson for the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress. This is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to educating the public of the benefits associated with chiropractic care. Jerry said, “I did a lot of things to stay in the game, but regular visits to my chiropractor made all the difference.”
Top Athletes Use and Endorse Chiropractic Care
You might be thinking, “I don’t play any high impact sports so how could chiropractic benefit me?” Chiropractic is not about injuries. Chiropractic care is about optimizing your abilities and achieving your peak performance. Dan O’Brien, a double Olympic and World Championship decathlon gold medalist, made a very profound statement when he said, “Were it not for chiropractic I would not have won the gold medal.”
Two other well-known athletes that are considered to be the best in their profession have made many statements crediting chiropractic as an integral component to their abilities. Michael Jordan understood the physical and mental benefits of chiropractic when he said, “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.” Tiger Woods has known of the benefits of chiropractic his whole life. He understood chiropractic is not about injuries or pain when he 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.” These 3 extremely talented athletes know, understand and tremendously value a properly functioning nervous system.
Kempsville Chiropractic’s Doctors Improve Your Athletic Performance
Here at Kempsville Chiropractic, our doctors are well versed in handling professional athletes and dealing with sports related injuries.
Dr. Lombardozzi was the chiropractor for the Virginia Beach Ballet Theater, and was the official chiropractor for the PGA tour in 2004. During the PGA tour, 85% of the golfers were treated with chiropractic care, not just their injuries, but to maximize their performance during the tournament.
Dealing with athletes that frequent Kempsville Chiropractic, Dr. Graham has worked with these athletes ranging from high school to the professional level, as well as treating and educating the coach of the US Olympic Women’s Volleyball team. These athletes, as well as many patients in our office who receive chiropractic care to maximize their health potential, understand that chiropractic is about optimizing peak performance, not just aches and pains.
Chiropractic Care is About Maximizing Your Body’s Potential
Though pain is one indicator that you have a problem, chiropractic is not just about pain. Many people judge their health on how they feel and that is never a good idea. Only about 10% of your nervous system is involved with feelings. The other 90% is involved with controlling and coordinating all the systems and functions of the body. Chiropractic is about maximizing your body’s potential by allowing your nervous system to properly control all of the body’s functions. Chiropractic removes subluxations, or misalignments in the spine that can impair the nervous system’s vital task of controlling all of the systems and functions in the body. Optimizing your health and maximizing your peak performance is the ultimate goal of chiropractic.
