Sports Performance and Chiropractic Care


To be a top athlete, a delicate balance of body strength, flexibility, and coordination is required.  A lot of this balance comes with an athlete’s significant dedication to learning specific techniques that maximize their sports performance.

While the idea that “practice makes perfect” is important, there is a lot an athlete can do to rapidly improve their performance, simply by keeping their spines in alignment. Did you know that most athletes who get regular spinal adjustments tend to perform better, than those who don’t? That’s why most professional sports teams have a chiropractor on staff, in the locker room, or on the sidelines to give their team an advantage.

Poor Posture Limits Athletic Performance

Spinal Misalignments directly affect the body’s nerve flow and stasis. That’s because spinal misalignments exert pressure on the delicate nerves that flow out of the spine and into the limbs and muscles – reducing strength and diminishing performance. If you feel you have plateaued in your athletic performance, you may have untapped potential waiting to be released with proper alignment.

At StrongLife Chiropractic in Lithia and Tampa Bay, FL, we often see athletes that are missing out on reaching their full potential due to issues (known and unknown) with their spinal alignment.

Optimize Your Alignment, Optimize Your Performance

Just as a Formula 1 race car needs proper alignment and engine tune-ups to perform at a high level, so does the human body. The core of the human body – the spine – does more than just keep you standing straight. It helps deliver vital nerve energy from the brain to all your limbs, muscles, and organs.  With the help of a chiropractor specializing in Chiropractic BioPhysics or CBP, restoring proper spinal alignment can help with the following:

  • Biomechanical efficiency of the entire body
  • Optimal limb and core coordination and strength
  • Improved endurance and stamina with performance
  • Less fatigue and quicker recovery between workouts and athletic events
  • Decreased risk of injuries
  • Improved mental clarity to focus on your sport

Some of the most common reasons an athlete quits a sport are related to these types of issues.  Preventing injury, maximizing performance, and feeling in control helps keep a sport both sustainable and fun for an athlete at any level.

How can a chiropractor help you be your best?

It should be no surprise that a large percentage (reported at 90%) of world-class athletes rely on chiropractic care to keep them performing at their best.

The bottom line is that every athlete should have a chiropractor in their “court.”  Keeping the entire neuromuscular system fine-tuned is a recipe for success. No matter your skill level, age, or sport, you have nothing to gain but a competitive edge.

Chiropractic BioPhysics, or CBP, is one of the most scientific, researched, and results-oriented corrective care techniques. CBP-trained chiropractors aim to realign the spine back to health, eliminating nerve interference and addressing the source of pain, fatigue, and disease. As with all chiropractic care, CBP is gentle, painless, and non-invasive.
