Chiropractic has gained wide use among professional and amateur sports teams across the country. It has proven, over and over, extremely effective in achieving overall wellness and advancing preventive care. Three trends point to sports chiropractic as an exceptional way to provide value and enhance care:
- Participation in high school and college sports is up, with experts predicting a 15-percent rise in employment of coaches and scouts by 2022.
- A growing number of professional and amateur athletes are seeking new drug-free and healthy strategies for gaining a competitive edge.
- As the baby boomer population ages, chiropractors are treating more retirement-age patients who want to maintain their athletic ability by eliminating acute and chronic pain, increasing flexibility, enhancing strength and balance and improving overall quality of life.
Experts estimate that 90 percent of all world-class athletes use chiropractic care to prevent injuries and increase their performance potential. All National Football League (NFL) teams rely on chiropractic care in varying capacities, and 77 percent of athletic trainers have referred players to a chiropractor for evaluation or treatment.
PERSONAL INJURY – CAR ACCIDENTS
Personal injury of some type almost always results from car accidents, whether it's your fault or not. If you are experiencing pain due to circumstances that were out of your control, it’s important to make sure that you clearly understand the extent of your injuries and receive timely and proper treatment for them to minimize long-term costs and health consequences.

NECK AND BACK PAIN, HEADACHES
Chiropractic has long provided effective relief to millions of individuals suffering from back and neck ailments. Chiropractic has also provided relief from many other musculoskeletal complaints ranging from knee and ankle problems to carpal tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow. In fact, musculoskeletal pain or discomfort in any area of the spine or extremity is a candidate for safe, natural, noninvasive chiropractic care. If a condition exists which is better suited for treatment by a medical specialist, chiropractors are fully trained to identify such conditions and make the appropriate referral. However, most patients suffering from musculoskeletal complaints can and are successfully treated with chiropractic every single day.
Headaches of all kinds can be effectively and safely treated with chiropractic care. This includes migraines, tension and stress headaches, hormonal headaches and headaches caused by sinus issues, to name a few. In fact, even sinuses can be adjusted, usually with AMAZING results!!
CHIROPRACTIC AND GENERAL WELLNESS
In a recent report from the Center for Disease Control, the four most popular forms of alternative and complementary medicine were listed as: natural products, deep breathing, meditation and chiropractic!
People are casting their votes with their healthcare dollars, and chiropractors are taking a leadership role in this new wellness model. Being in a profession whose core philosophy is about the optimization of the brain-body communication network, chiropractors are an integral part of a healthcare system with an emphasis on whole-body health and wellness.
In a multi-nation study involving hundreds of chiropractors and thousands of chiropractic patients, researchers found that a number of patients experienced systemic benefits from their chiropractic treatments whether or not they mentioned any symptoms in these areas at the onset of care. The most common benefits reported in this study were for breathing (27%), digestion (26%) and circulation (21%). Chiropractic care has also been shown to boost the immune system, help to lower high blood pressure, aid in better and more restful sleep and promote an overall sense of well-being, all without any harmful drug side effects!
