At the London 2012 Olympics, the British Chiropractic Association was involved with the development of a multi-disciplinary team in the Polyclinic. Athletes received Chiropractic care as one of the London 2012 core services. This was again offered at Rio 2016, with many countries sending their own team of Chiropractors.
“I would estimate that at least 90% of world class athletes use chiropractic on a regular basis to prevent injuries and to improve their performance.”
Sean Atkins PhD Exercise Physiologist.
It is well known that Olympic Champions Andy Murray, Bradley Wiggins and fastest man on Earth Usain Bolt receive Chiropractic treatment as part of their Olympic preparation.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is also a supporter of Chiropractic and commented this year; “It’s a necessity to have a Chiropractor, as much as a necessity to have a dentist. As you have a dentist for your family, you should have a Chiropractor for your family.”
Chiropractic is for everyone, not just top athletes!
How can Chiropractic help you?
Chiropractic can improve posture, movement and flexibility of the spine and whole body, reducing pain and encouraging healthy function. Treatment consists of hands on manipulation and manual therapy, in addition to advice about self-help and therapeutic exercises.
The aim of Chiropractic care is to target the root cause of the problem rather than just the symptoms, therefore enabling optimum function and maximum performance- be it breaking world records, keeping up with the kids over summer or relaxing in the sun!
