What Does the Superbowl and Chiropractic Have In Common?

super-bowl-patriots-2015Sunday’s Superbowl game between the Falcons and the Patriots was a real nail-biter! Watching the Patriots rally so late in the game kept everyone on the edge of their seats. No matter which team you were routing for, we’ve got the post game scoop on the one thing both teams have in common.

For instance, did you know that both teams employ chiropractic doctors who help players healthy during the rigorous NFL season? In fact, all 32 NFL teams have at least one chiropractic doctor on staff, as do many other major pro and collegiate sports teams. Each week (and even more during the playoff games) these doctors work hard to provide care to players in the training room. They treat issues such as muscle sprains, fractures and other injuries sustained from excessive tackling and repetitive use.

Injuries aren’t the only reason that pro players seek chiropractic care. It also helps them improve overall stamina and conditioning that can actually help prevent injuries later on down the road.

Doctors of chiropractic receive a minimum of seven years of higher level medical education. Similar to other MD.s, they are qualified to diagnose, treat and manage a variety of health conditions. Oftentimes they work closely with a patient’s primary care physician to help deliver some of the best and most balanced care available that reduces the need for expensive treatment or medication.

For athletes of any age, your Fort Collins Chiropractor offers care that can help reduce both the pain and the risk of injuries by helping to improve muscle strength, range of motion, flexibility and balance throughout the spine and body.

No matter if you are a pro athlete, run marathons or simply stay active with hiking and workouts, chiropractic care is a unique treatment that is designed to provide pain relief from neck and low back pain, as well as helping patients live a much healthier lifestyle.
