The NFL is celebrating its 100th season this year with two of the oldest franchise rivals, the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers on September 5th! We are counting down the days! Athletes are looking to perform at the highest level. For years athletes have been using chiropractic care to treat injuries and general maintenance. As a matter of fact, all 32 professional football teams have a chiropractor on staff. A chiropractic adjustment has been shown to directly interact with the central nervous system.
Did you know that in 2014, over 600 players filed a class-action lawsuit in California against the National Football League for illegally supplying them with painkillers. Athletes are looking at health maintenance in a whole new light. And it’s evident as chiropractic care has been used and praised by many top athletes like Jerry Rice and Michael Strahan.
Our Appleton chiropractor, Dr. Adam Shadick, has worked for Dr. Jim Kurtz, Team Chiropractor for the Seattle Seahawks as well as Dr. Joshua Sandell, Sports Medicine Specialist for the Minnesota Vikings. Not only does Dr. Adam have experience with athletes, but he has a passion for sports rehabilitation.
Chiropractic care is an indispensable tool to improve sports performance in every athlete, not just football players. Chiropractic care can help minimize pain, increase flexibility and boost overall performance. If you’re curious about how chiropractic care can help you (or the little athletes in your family) give us a call, 920-882-4000.
