Bottom Line: Athletes and active people are always looking for the competitive edge. There may not be anyone who embodies that spirit more than basketball legend Michael Jordan. He won multiple world championships, gold medals, and broke just about every record in the NBA. So what was the secret to his success? Well, aside from a tremendous amount of 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.”
Why it Matters: Just like you, Michael was always striving to reach his full potential both physically and mentally. With his chiropractic testimony, he joined athletes like Tom Brady, Aaron Rogers, Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, and Wayne Gretzky who have all talked about how chiropractic care helped them stay at the top of their game. With the rigors of pro sports and demands these athletes place on their bodies, it makes sense that chiropractic care would be used to keep them healthy and performing to their highest potential.
Here are what a few other star athletes had to say about chiropractic.
Next Steps: Michael Jordan was ahead of his time with his training methods and healthcare choices. Now, it’s common to see a chiropractor on the sidelines of every professional sport. But, many people still aren’t aware of the benefits of chiropractic care. So next time someone compliments you on your golf swing or posture, let them know that chiropractic helped!
