04 Jul 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?
