Chiropractic is the foremost and most-regulated form of alternative health care. Far too many people still believe that chiropractic care isn't necessary unless they're suffering excruciating low back pain. The millions who do receive regular adjustments know that chiropractic can resolve their back pain, and they may also be learning about the potential non-musculoskeletal benefits.
Chiropractors are experts in the care of
the bones, nerves, muscles and connective tissues that make up about 60% of your body. All of the joints in your body are part of this musculo-skeletal system and its optimal function is necessary for overall good health.
Each year, an estimated two million high school athletes are injured while practicing or in the course of a game. Sports chiropractors focus on treating injuries of the muscles and bones. As many as 75% of professional athletes require chiropractic care for their aches and pains. Today, 31% of NFL teams have an official chiropractor on their staff. With professional sports organizations beginning to embrace chiropractic, perhaps more of the public school sports programs will seek out this natural, safe alternative to drugs and surgery.
