It’s no secret that elite athletes around the world love chiropractic care not only for enhancing rehabilitation after an injury, but also for boosting overall performance. For events such as this year’s Olympics, it’s common to see professional athletes have a chiropractor accompany them in order to stay at the top of their game.
Recently, researchers from the Centre for Chiropractic Research in New Zealand sought to quantify changes in performance in elite athletes after chiropractic adjustments.
What they found is hugely promising for athletes seeking an extra edge in performance.

No wonder so many elite athletes are adamant about always traveling with their chiropractor!
