Many of today’s athletes utilize a sports chiropractor to prevent injury and to improve biomechanical and neuromuscular function with the ultimate goal of enhancing performance. As of 2015, all 32/32 NFL teams now have an official team Chiropractor and 27/30 MLB teams have an official team Chiropractor (the other 3 teams allow the players to consult Chiropractors). Almost every NBA team has an official team Chiropractor as well. In 2006, a study analyzing Division I NCAA college athletes at inter-college sporting events in Hawaii found that chiropractic usage within the last 12 months was reported by 39% of respondents.

 

The unique expertise applied to the management of athletic injuries by certified sports chiropractors improves patient outcomes.  The training and experience common to certified sports chiropractors allows faster and more precise diagnosis of problems related to exercise, repetitive motion and high-intensity activity.  Smarter more targeted rehabilitation allows patients a more rapid return to function and prevents recurrences.  Sports Chiropractic is concerned with extreme energy expenditure, high magnitude forces and high-velocity motion and the effects those have on bodily function.
