Why have Lance Armstrong, Tiger Woods, Joe Montana, Jerry Rice and Emmit Smith all turned to chiropractic care? “Because it’s been shown to improve athletic performance nearly 16.7%,” says Boise ChiropractorChad Woolner of Align Chiropractic & Rehabilitation.
“Athletes these days are in the most competitive atmosphere we have ever seen. Chiropractic care plays a huge role within musculoskeletal performance, protection against injury, and recovery from injuries. That is why a large number of pro athletes are investing in chiropractic care,” says Woolner. Seven-time Tour De France winner Lance Armstrong is a huge supporter of chiropractic care. He has brought his personal chiropractor to every single Tour De France. Following one of his victories, he said he would not have won without his chiropractor.
Three-time Super Bowl champion and all time leading rusher, Emmit Smith, also attributes a great deal of his success to chiropractic care. Emmit Smith attributes a lot of his prolonged healthy career to chiropractic care. In fact, this is just what he was quoted saying about chiropractic care:
“Do I need to get more rest? Do I need to eat better? Do I need a little more training? How can I take care of my body better? Do I need to find a chiropractor? It was time for me to invest in me, I found a specialist that’s really good in balancing out my body to make sure my hips are rotated right, and my body is functioning properly. I remember somebody telling me that what I put myself in during the games is like having a car wreck every Sunday. It’s against the norm. You can find yourself in awkward positions. That stuff takes its toll. But if you take advantage of specific chiropractic care, allow the brain to better communicate wit the rest of your body via the nervous system, you function better, and you recover faster.” Chiropractic Works!
