Chiropractic Care for Athletes in Harrogate
Posted: April 9th, 2020
If you follow The Olympics, Tennis or Golf... You'll notice almost all of the top athletes utilise some form of Chiropractic care, either on the forefront or backstage.
The same can be found amongst professional singers and dancers on tour. In fact it is estimated by Sean Atkins (Exercise Physiologist) PhD that over 90% of the worlds top athletes implement Chiropractic care on a regular basis to improve their performance and prevent injury.
Chiropractic is slowly becoming a necessity for those performing at their highest level.
"I've been going to chiropractors for as long as I can remember. It's as important to my training as practicing my swing."
- Tiger Woods
"Bodybuilders and fitness people have been using Chiropractic very extensively in order to stay healthy and fit. I found it was better to go to a Chiropractor before you get injured. We are a perfect team - the world of fitness and the world of Chiropractors"
- Arnold Schwarzenegger
Why Are The Elite Opting For Chiropractic?
Chiropractors offer a unique perspective as they recognise that roughly only 1 in 10 nerves tell you how you're feeling, therefore they do not judge health based solely on how an individual feels, instead they take a global approach combining both feel with function.
As Primary Care Practitioners Chiropractors also have the ability to provide a working diagnosis and treatment plan following thorough neurological and orthopaedic testing.
The above explains why Arnold Schwarzenegger, Usain Bolt and Tiger Woods are advocates for this profession.
Why Is The Spine Is Crucial?
Just like the chassis of a car the spine is effectively your central anchoring point from which all movement occurs. It encases your bodies communication system (the spinal cord) acting as a protective coat of armour. It is through this system that your muscles are able to receive instructions from your brain, allowing you to move as you choose! Chiropractors recognise that impaired function of this armour can negatively affect your bodies ability to send signals to and from the brain, much like static can impair a message broadcasted from a radio station. Chiropractors aim to find the root cause of the static, rather than attempting to decode a disrupted signal.
However, Chiropractic Is Not Solely Reserved For The Elite Few
Athletes are not the only ones with a spine and communication system, in fact anyone of us can benefit from Chiropractic, whether you are looking to optimise your health, increase your personal best in the gym or simply improve your posture Falcon Chiropractic may be able to help you achieve these goals while guiding you every step of the way...
