Multiple studies have shown how athletes benefit from chiropractic care. In one study of 19 elite sprint athletes, one group received spinal adjustments as indicated before performing and the other group did not. Both groups running time was measured before and after spinal adjustments were given to the group. Results indicated that sprint times increased with the group who received adjustments prior to performing.
Athletic performance is linked to spinal health. Proper spinal alignment reduces nerve interference and allows the body to function at its optimal level. The body is able to heal quicker which leads to improved athletic performance. The chiropractic adjustment results in increased blood flow to muscles and as a result there is an increase in balance, strength and other athletic abilities.
