Chiropractic and sports performance

Originating in the USA, where it is the third largest health profession, Chiropractic is a natural therapy based on the care of the nervous system and spine. Through gentle and painless adjustments of the spine, the doctor of chiropractic ensures that the nervous system is free of interference, allowing 100% uninterrupted flow of nerve information between the brain, muscles, organs and every cell in the body.
This, in turn, promotes optimal functioning of the entire body. Not only are aches and pains avoided, but the energy level is increased as well as the resistance to stress, physical fatigue and illness.
