"The robust need for chiropractic care in the NFL has been deeply driven by the players' desire for peak physical conditioning and not simply for injuries," said Miami Dolphins team chiropractor, Spencer Baron. "From the earliest years of full contact football, their bodies are subject to structural stress that doctors of chiropractic are specially trained to care for. Many chiropractors who provide services to professional athletes travel with their respective teams throughout the season, treating players up until game time, during the game and immediately following."
Knowing the pros depend on chiropractic care to decrease injuries and increase performance reiterates the need for chiropractic care for the youngest players as well as the young men who shine under the Friday night lights. High school football leads all other sports when it comes to injuries. It's imperative that the players and parents understand how to reduce the chance of injuries that could impact one game - or a lifetime. Aside from protective gear and proper training, chiropractic care is an effective and preventative measure that your athlete can start today!
