Improving spinal health has a positive effect on the function of the nervous system resulting in a better nerve supply to muscles, organs and other systems of the body. This improved nerve supply becomes vital when the body is placed under pressure and needs to work at its potential. Because medications tend to simply relieve pain rather than get to the root of the problem, getting chiropractic care is a more natural and complete solution for many top athletes.

Manual manipulation of the back and joints relieves pressure on nearby nerve receptors and allows the body to heal more quickly and more naturally without the help of chemicals. Some of the common athletic ailments that are often treated through chiropractic include:

- Sprains

- Tendinitis

- Bursitis

Joint problems in the foot, hip, knee, ankle, shoulder, hand, elbow and wrist Circulation issues in the legs and arms

A research study conducted by Drs. Anthony Lauro and Brian Mouch, published in the journal of Chiropractic Research and Clinical Investigation, 1991, indicated chiropractic care can improve athletic performance by as much as 20% over a two week period. The report also concluded that subluxation-free (subluxation = restricted vertebral segmental motion) athletes react faster, coordinate better, execute fine movements with improved accuracy and precision, amounting to an overall better athlete. It can also improve flexibility and better muscle function. Elite athletes and people just wanting to stay fit can benefit from chiropractic care to recover from and reduce the chance of injury during sport. When your body is in better alignment, your nervous system is finely tuned, all pistons are firing! This leads to better performance, fewer injuries and quicker recovery.
