The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, a non-profit organization whose goal is to educate and inform the public about “benefits associated with Chiropractic care” states that Professional Basketball athletes heavily rely on Chiropractic treatments for numerous conditions and injuries. Professional athletes from the sports of golf, baseball, hockey, and football also turn to DCs (Doctors of Chiropractic) for care.
According to the Foundation, The Professional Football Chiropractic Society noted that all 32 National Football League teams are offered Chiropractic physician care as part of their prevention and management treatment program. Many DCs even travel with the teams, and NFL Hall of Famer inductee Jerry Rice believes so much in the benefits of Chiropractic that he is a spokesman for the Foundation.
Pro-Golfer Tiger Wood’s injury, a bulging spinal disc, which is becoming more common, can be successfully treated early through Chiropractic care and related therapies including ultrasound, electrical stimulation, and Acupuncture. Often, non-invasive care can effectively “decrease the need for more invasive procedures such as… injections and surgery” according to http://www.yes2chiropractic.com .
Many college and high school athletes have intensive training schedules as well as competitions with the risk of injuries per sport summarized in a chart at: http://dynamicchiropractic.com/mpacms/ dc/article.php?id=38548 which emphasized early treatment to avoid protracted problems. A well-trained Chiropractor with years of experience has many modalities to prevent and treat sports-induced injuries, and inflammations.
