Usain Bolt – the worlds fastest man, current world record holder, reigning olympic gold medalist – utilizes regular chiropractic care to be at his best! Do you?
Chiropractic care has been helping olympic athletes of all nations achieve amazing feats of athletic performance at the 2012 London Olympic games. Chiropractic care has been shown to improve athletic performance by as much as 17 percent- that’s a nice edge when competing with other elite athletes! This is the first time chiropractors will be included as part of the official universal medical team at the summer Olympic Games, working in the official Olympic polyclinics and at the venues themselves.
Usain Bolt is a Jamaican sprinter and a five-time World and three-time Olympic gold medalist. He is the world record and Olympic record holder in the 100 metres, the 200 metres and (along with his teammates) the 4×100 metres relay and the reigning Olympic champion in these three events. What many don’t know, though, is that his athletic career was nearly derailed by the spinal scoliosis he has dealt with his entire life.
“When I was younger the scoliosis wasn’t really a problem. But you grow and it gets worse. My spine was really curved bad. The early part of my career, when we didn’t really know much about it, it really hampered me because I got injured every year.”
With chiropractic care and specific core and back strengthening exercises. Bolt has managed to minimize any effects his scoliosis might have on his athletic performance. Many, unfortunately, turn to chiropractic care only after they have been injured. But in addition to improving performance, speed and agility, ongoing preventative chiropractic care can offer health and wellness benefits vital to everyone:
-Increased Range of Motion
