Tiger Woods Utilizes Chiropractic Care

Sport Injury TreatmentAfter he became the youngest ever Masters Tournament champion at only 21 years old, Tiger Woods has gone on to win over 100 golf tournaments and break multiple world records. Today, he is both the leader in career victories and career money listing among active players on the PGA tour, professional golf’s major event. It’s safe to say that Tiger Woods will go down in history for his outstanding athletic achievements.

But it isn’t only natural ability that has brought him this far in his athletic career. Maintaining pro status requires dedication to practice and intense physical exertion to stay in shape. His grueling daily routine of cardio, weight training, and (of course) hours on the golf course begins at 6:30 a.m. and continues until 7 p.m., breaking only twice for half-hour meals.

Tiger’s intense practice schedule increases the risk of sports-related injury affecting joints and muscles. It is essential to minimize the chance of injuries that can be painful and time-consuming to heal. Tiger makes it clear that he considers visiting the chiropractor an important facet of regular training:

“I’ve been going to chiropractors for as long as I can remember. It’s as important to my training as practicing my swing.”

Chiropractic adjustment improves range of motion, flexibility, and can correct the effects of athletic strain on joints and muscles. It is also a helpful preventative measure. Soreness can be normal after a strenuous workout, but it can also be indicative of harmful stress on muscles and joints that often results in painful injury. A chiropractic evaluation can help distinguish between normal, minor discomfort and the potential for future injury. Then the proper adjustment can be made to prevent harm to the body and keep it in top shape for athletic performance.

Maybe you haven’t broken world records on the golf course. But that doesn’t mean Indianapolis chiropractic can’t benefit you! It’s not just professional athletes who are using chiropractic, it could be you committing to a healthier, happier tomorrow.
