First off, Go Patriots!!! Since moving to Boston I have thoroughly enjoyed living in the city of champions! It was very exciting to see the Bruins raise the Stanley Cup in 2011 and I look forward to watching the Patriots compete in the ultimate grudge match at superbowl forty-six.
Here is a quote from this weekend’s game-manager, and long time advocate of chiropractic care, quarterback Tom Brady, “Chiropractic just makes you feel so much better. When I walk out of the clinic, I feel like I’m about three inches taller and everything’s in place. And as long as I see the chiropractor, I feel like I’m one step ahead of the game.”
In the National Football League (NFL), health is paramount and thriving longevity is the ultimate focus of the professional athlete. Why suffer through pain and risk a career-ending injury when you can properly heal, rehab, train, and come back stronger and faster!? This paradigm is a significant shift from the “no pain, no gain” mentality of the past and professional athletes are now allowed to mature into their careers and develop their talents so that they may enjoy longer, more successful careers through maintaining their health.
What about you? Think about it, like the professional athlete you also get bumps and bruises, aches and pains, locked up joints and bouts of a stiff neck… when you have an injury do you suffer through the pain, or do you take the appropriate steps and have a champion’s approach to health? Most Americans ‘tough it out’ and allow their small aches and pains to develop into chronic problems that limit them from doing the things they love! Does your headache or bad back prevent you from reaching your health goals (exercise, weight loss, etc.)? Does stiffness and pain limit your performance at work or reduce the quality of the time you spend with your loved ones? With the appropriate care applied, it doesn’t have to!
As of 2012, every NFL team has a chiropractic physician as part of their athletes care team – chiropractic care is now viewed as an essential puzzle piece of maintaining and improving each athlete’s health. Chiropractors most commonly work on improving joint function and helping improve soft tissue (muscle and fascia) mobility so that players can recover quickly from injury, prevent injury by addressing imbalances and restrictions, and reach the professional bottom line – that is, enabling athletes to function at their highest level.
Although we are not all professional athletes, we all deserve the best possible health, as do those we love. NFL hall of famer Joe Montana said this about chiropractic care while he was with the San Francisco 49ers, “I only wish I had tried chiropractic a few years ago when I first started having back pain and maybe surgery would have never happened - now we know that chiropractic is not just for bad backs or necks. It’s about prevention, so your body can function at optimum health.” Joe continues to receive regular chiropractic care and views it as an essential part of maintaining his health and wellness.
Should chiropractic care be part of your healthcare? I encourage you to think about this question and to schedule an initial consultation to have your body checked for locked joints, limitations in range of motion and muscular imbalances that may have developed over time. In addition to treating the skeletal structure by mobilizing joints with chiropractic adjustments, I also care for the muscles and tendons that surround and support the joints. Through soft tissue work like myo-fascial release, ischemic compression and Graston Technique, stiffness and scar tissue are released for optimal mobilization and range of motion. Therapeutic exercises and stretching programs are tailored to your specific needs allowing you to better care for yourself and enjoy the activities in life that you may be missing.
I would be honored to be a part of your healthcare team and I look forward to the opportunity to help you reduce your pain and stiffness and achieve your health and wellness goals!
