Prevent Injury & Gain Strength with Chiropractic

Prevent Injury & Gain Strength with Chiropractic

Want to prevent injury when training?

A Macquarie University study shows that semi-elite athletes were 13% less likely to suffer hamstring injury and 24% less likely to experience lower limb muscle strain when under the care of a Chiropractor.

Those receiving Chiropractic treatment also had significant reductions in non-contact knee injuries, low back pain and improvements in physical components of health.

Want to tap in to that extra 10% when strength training?

Recent studies show that Chiropractic adjustments to the cervical spine can improve grip and arm strength by 10% – 16%!

Athletic performance improved through Chiropractic care
