The Rio 2016 Stars that use Chiropractic

rio-2016At the Rio Olympics this year, the difference between a gold and silver medal will be tighter than ever. Many athletes have looked at alternative options to obtain that extra inch, that extra goal or that extra mph. Usain Bolt, the world’s fastest man, has won 6 Olympic Gold medals, but never a silver or bronze, “As long as I’m in great shape, nobody beats me, for sure.” He has been vocal about his use of chiropractic to boost his performance and keep him injury free.

“When I was younger, the scoliosis wasn’t really a problem. But as you grow and its gets worse; my spine was really curved bad. The early part of my career, when we didn’t really know much about it, it really hampered me because I got injured every year.”

Andy Murray is someone else who understands the importance of chiropractic in sports performance. He has often been seen over the years having chiropractic adjustments court-side in some of the biggest tennis tournaments in the world.

It has been shown that the early discovery and prompt treatment of an injury, whilst correcting the athlete’s performance deficits can also improve their overall performance. By correcting spinal subluxations, athletic performance can be improved by reducing interference on the nervous system.
