It also wasn’t long ago that we heard about Sidney Crosby’s astounding recovery thanks to chiropractic. In 1997, Donovan Bailey received care from his chiropractor just minutes before sprinting to a first place finish that maintained his title as the world’s fastest man for three more years. On an even larger scale, the 2010 Winter Olympics were proud to be the first to fully integrate chiropractic into host medical services. Even with this recent success, chiropractic doctors were already working directly with sports teams and Olympic athletes decades before the Vancouver Games.
Whether a professional athlete is on a team or participating in an individual sport, chiropractic has probably played a role in their athletic development. There is a staggering amount of evidence and research that supports the effectiveness of chiropractic, but it is even more telling to note just how many athletes depend on chiropractors to keep them in the game. The doctors at McCormick Chiropractic have experience working with golf pros, MMA fighters, wrestlers, hockey players, snowboarders, baseball players, swimmers and more.
The truth is chiropractors are well positioned to work with athletes. Musculoskeletal and neurological function forms the core of a chiropractic doctor’s scope of practice. Biomechanics and physiology are just a few of the topics chiropractic students will study during their 7-8 year education.
Of course, not all of us are pro athletes, but many of us still receive the benefit of chiropractic care. Approximately 80% of Americans will experience a spine or spine related problem and that’s not just the high performance types. The one thing we do have in common is that we all have a spine and nervous system, something all chiropractors understand very well.
