Chiropractors Not Only For Paid Participants!

By Randy Goodson

Sports athletes have come to rely on their chiropractors more than just about any other medical professional. Once the news was out and that chiropractic care could treat more than sore backs their waiting rooms were filled to overflowing with people eagerly awaiting their turn for treatment. Chiropractic care has become a sort of hidden secret for success in sports.

The use of this type of care has been examined thoroughly across National Football League teams in the US. When asked about chiropractic care use and referral most answered that they had been treated personally by a chiropractor.

A big percentage of NFL teams use chiropractors in an official role, as part of their personnel, but almost all trainers had referred a patient to a chiropractor outside their payroll for evaluation or treatment. Not that the NFL players actually need a referral, with a hefty percentage of them seeking out a chiropractor of their choice without any referral at all.

With chiropractors being so proficient and familiar with spinal problems and injuries, it is a no-brainer that they would have so many players referred to them, but it doesn't stop there with coaches and office staff also utilizing them. Even the athletes of today are beginning to understand just how big of a difference there is between medical physicians and chiropractic physicians.

Not only do football players use chiropractors but so do just about every other professional athlete, at least in one capacity or another. John Stockton for one. When he was asked to explain why, he answered that although he was not an expert in chiropractic care and what the discipline comprised, he knew it was not just about adjustment. The importance of it was balancing the demands of the high impact sport he played. He continued saying it has been great for him and his family, and that right next to chiropractic care, what kept him being a success was the love for the game and having fun with his family.

With such a huge amount of evidence and testimonial from high profile athletes, not only athletes, but even sedentary people have reaped tremendous benefits from chiropractic treatment. - 30540
