Everyone knows Michael Jordan. In the peak of his career, he won multiple world championships, gold medals, and even broke two records in one half of his 1992 game in Miami. He had broken just about every record in the history of NBA. Is there a secret to his success? Besides his overwhelming hard work and persistence, Michael said, “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.”
Just like all of us, Michael was always challenging his limits and striving towards performing at his full potential. Michael is not the only athlete who has benefited from chiropractic care. Other athletes such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tiger Woods, Derrick Rose, Joe Montana, Wayne Gretzky have all spoken about how chiropractic care helped them stay at the top of their game. The rigors of professional sport put massive amounts of stress on the body. It only makes sense for athletes to utilise chiropractic care for better recovery and higher performance.

Do chiropractic adjustments really benefit me?
Your facet joints are tiny joints on the back of your spine. Like your knuckles, these joints are enclosed in a small capsule for lubrication and support. Movements to your facet joints can cause gas within the joint to be released and this movement gives a crunch or crackling sound (The Telegraph). This release of gas is perfectly normal and happens due to the negative pressure of the joint. Sometimes adhesions can form in the joint. These adhesions cause the joint to become restricted and movement becomes painful!. This is why many people feel better and have an improved range of motion after a chiropractic adjustment (All American Healthcare). Chiropractic adjustments remove the restrictions in the facet joints and help to restore normal joint movement.
