Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine designed to treat issues involved with the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors use adjustments to restore joint function and support the nervous system. The chiropractic adjustment is a safe, specific, controlled force applied to a joint to restore proper function and mobility. It can also reduce pain, increase movement and improve performance. A considerable percentage of professional and Olympic athletes receive Chiropractic care to enhance their mobility and bring their performance to the next level. Chiropractic care for Olympic athletes began in 1980 in the Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, NY. Since then, Chiropractors have provided pain treatment services to these athletes along with certified athletic trainers.
