Whether you are a professional athlete, a weekend warrior footballer or a recreational walker, chiropractic can help to improve all aspects of your bodies function. Regular chiropractic adjustments can help keep you functioning and performing at your best, all the time.

For many years, chiropractors have played an integral role in the ongoing training and performance enhancement of top athletes around the world. Athletes such as Tiger Woods, Ireland's own Padraig Harrington, Michael Jordan, AC Milan football team and even the fastest man in the world Usain Bolt have openly spoken of how chiropractic is a vital part of their training and success.

 Tiger Woods:  "I've been going to chiropractors for as long as I can remember. It’s as important to my training as practicing my swing."


Michael Jordan:"I didn't know how much I could improve until I started seeing a chiropractor. Since I've been in chiropractic, I've improved by leaps and bounds both mentally and physically."


So how does chiropractic help athletes perform?


Chiropractors assess the body to identify areas which could be causing irritation and interference within our nervous system. Why? Because the nervous system (made up of the brain, spinal cord and all the nerves branching off from the spinal cord going to every part of the body) controls, regulates and coordinates every single function within the body.    From co-ordination, reaction time, speed and stamina to strength. When areas of interference are identified, chiropractors are uniquely qualified to correct these interferences, thereby releasing each person's peak potential.
