As the weather is starting to get warmer, people are becoming more active. In fact, there’s an upcoming race called the Shamrock Shuffle in the Zelienople and Harmony area! Now is the time to get yourself ready and prepare you body to prevent injuries.
Chiropractors were heavily involved in the last couple of Olympics and remain to treat athletes competing in all major sports. Because chiropractors are trained to diagnose and treat biomechanical (body movement) injuries, it only makes sense to be integrated in the medical staff. In fact, popular athletes such as Aaron Rodgers, Jerry Rice, Michael Jordan, Michael Phelps, Evander Holyfield, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Tiger Woods have all been proud patients of chiropractors. Chiropractors can make a difference by realigning tissues and improving muscular imbalances which leads to prevention of injury and improved performance. Additionally, with the techniques a chiropractor uses, injury recover time is decreased.
