There are many ways in which chiropractic can help you excel. Not only is chiropractic treatment helpful in treating and rehabilitating sports injuries, but research also suggests that chiropractic care may have even more specific effects on performance. From improved muscle stimulation, hand grip strength, and reaction time, to greater vertical jump height, hip extension in runners and increased running velocity. We are only starting to scratch the surface in the research world in illustrating all the ways in which treatment may help your body perform better.
