Chiropractic; not a luxury but an athlete’s necessity!

Football helmet and ballThe chiropractic movement in amateur sports has exploded since the 2008 Olympics when Dr. Terry Schroeder coached the Olympic water polo team to its first medal.

Chiropractic gives athletes the competitive advantage they need to compete at the highest level and for the duration of their event.  This is especially important to college-bound athletes who are seeking scholarships, as colleges want to invest in healthy kids rather than risk their dollars on young athletes with chronic injuries.


Chiropractors ensure the rapid healing from injuries, as well as, help young athletes to optimize their performance and to ensure the healthy growth and development of young people’s spines and nervous systems.

Many Olympic and youth sports programs have chosen to make chiropractic care a core part of their programs.  In fact, many of the leaders of the Olympic sports medicine team today are chiropractors.  The Medical Director for all three USOC Training Centers is a Chiropractor and holds a Diplomate of Chiropractic Sports Physicians credential.  Many Professional Sports and Professional Events have Sports Chiropractors as part of their regular staff where Professional Athletes receive Chiropractic care as a regular part of their training and treatment protocols; it is not a luxury but a necessity for a Professional Medical Staff!
