Oftentimes a team will have a chiropractor assigned for the whole team to reap the benefits of game improvement, and reduce the risks of obtaining a sports related injury.
A short report from in Acupuncture in Medicine [1999:17(1)]: states that:”Chiropractic has the highest usage of all the wellness disciplines by European football (soccer) clubs.” and that, “If you or your children are involved in contact sports such as soccer or football, the need for chiropractic care increases tremendously. Exposure to the physical stresses from such sports increases the opportunities for your spine to experience subluxations, the misalignments of the vertebra that interfere not only with athletic performance but with total health and body function as well.”
Studies have been done that prove the use of chiropractic care drastically improves performance in sports. One of the first studies done was highlighted in Chiropractic: The Journal of Chiropractic Research and Clinical Investigation [1991; 6:84-87].
