The Success of the OLYMPICS 2012
For years chiropractors have been working with world class athletes; and why not? Chiropractors are experts in human function!
One of the well known chiropractors, Dr. Terry Schroeder was named the head coach of the U.S water polo team, which became one of the top stories in 2008 Beijing Olympics after the team won silver. The athletes ranked ninth in the world and defeated Serbia in the semi-finals.
Dr. Schroeder’s players receive regular chiropractic care, whether they have symptoms or not to improve their long-term health and to optimise their joint and muscle function therefore maximizing their performance at the Olympic games.
Chiropractors are now learning about Functional Neurology, a very complex program entailing in-depth understanding of the human nervous system. This technique allows for successful treatment of dystonia, post-stroke rehabilitation and radiculopathies. Specifically for athletes, the chiropractor will use physical and neurological test and treatments to provide better stability, motor movements, joint and muscular function and sensory acuity.
The popularity of chiropractic has grown around the world. Every athlete is looking for an edge and they are finding that chiropractic offers a hands-on, drug-free advantage. Athletes are finely tuned humans and when one seemingly insignificant part of their physiology is not performing correctly they lose function; adding time or shortening distances to their event.
So, What’s the difference between you and a world class Olympic athlete? Nothing. Just as Usain Bolt, Bradley Wiggins and Steve Redgrave, you are meant to move freely and function without interference. You may find yourself functioning less than you once did, for that reason, chiropractic care:
reduces motor reaction times
increases stability of the body
increases coordination of movements
increase oxygen transportation and usage
reduces bio mechanical position errors
provides a lifetime of physiological and neurologic care

Its all about GOLD
Usain Bolt and Bradley Wiggins both have 2 medals in common. Usain Bolt, three-time Olympic gold medalist and Bradley Wiggins four-time Olympic gold medalist both maintain their optimum physique with regular chiropractic treatment!
What Bradley Wiggins says…
‘I first started working with my chiropractor at the end of 2008 following my success at the 2008 Beijing summer Olympics. After years of struggling with minor niggles that I had learned to live with, and having never really found the answer to my problems despite having sought numerous treatment options with no great success, I went to see a chiropractor.
From my first session, I had great results that were not short lived. That followed up with regular sessions I saw improvements that I had never seen before and that reflected in the way my body held up on a day to day basis which eventually saw me achieve 4th place in the 2009 Tour de France under his supervision.
My chiropractor will undoubtedly remain an integral part of my medical support in the forthcoming seasons and lead up to the London 2012 Olympic Games’.
