Professional athletes work with sports chiropractors!
Do you know professional sports is big business? With most clubs, athletes are given access to a variety of the best healthcare options to help them play at the highest level possible. Over the past few years, you may have noticed some familiar faces on the sidelines – chiropractors (Vancouver Sun). Sports performance is a huge part of winning. Chiropractors are on nearly every sideline of every major sports event and over a hundred chiropractors were deployed at the London 2012 Olympics (Metro, UK). Sport chiropractors work to keep athletes happy, healthy, and productive over the course of their long and rigorous season.
Chiropractors address the injury at its cause; we don’t mask the pain!
The days of walking into a sports injury clinic for shots of narcotics are over. In fact, the best sports doctors in Singapore probably don’t do them anymore! Turning off the pain mechanism is an excellent way to cause more injury (BBC News). Not less! But, with chiropractors there to help find the cause of the injury so athletes can get back on the field feeling better than ever (American Chiropractic Association). Both the sports franchises and the players now realise that a team approach to sports therapy is the best.
Do you know nearly every professional sports team has a team chiropractor on the sidelines?
“Bodybuilders and fitness people have been using chiropractic very extensively in order to stay healthy and fit. I found it was better to go to a chiropractor before you get injured. We are a perfect team – the world of fitness and the world of chiropractors.”
Arnold Schwarzenegger, Professional Bodybuilder
Seven times Mr Olympia, Mr Universe
