An Athletes Secret Advantage

Athletes are committed to maximizing their performance and are discovering that Chiropractic Care is one of the best ways to accomplish it.  So many world class athletes work with Chiropractors because they are experts at Human Function.  We have heard multiple stories of athletes having their Chiropractors at the Olympic games.  Swimmers, Gymnasts, Misty May in Beach Volleyball and of course, Jamaican Sprinter, Usain Bolt – currently the “fastest man alive”.

Every athlete is consistently looking for an edge and many view Chiropractic Care as their drugless and secret advantage over their competition.  Athletes are finely tuned and when one seemingly insignificant part of their body is not performing correctly, they can lose function, making them inefficient and vulnerable to injury.

At a recent Soccer Tournament, Dr. Ronco spent time on the sidelines adjusting several of the boys before the championship game.  The question came up by a few parents regarding what was wrong with his son, Robert?  They were concerned that he was hurt and he wouldn’t be able to play. That’s when it was explained…

There are three key areas that Dr. Ronco focuses on when adjusting the players before a game:

  1. Spinal Alignment to ensure the proper mechanics and motor response which can help to minimize stress on the joints (specifically hips, knees and ankles).
  2. Increasing stability and coordination of movements.
  3. Maximizing strength in order to prevent injury and stay healthy.

…. all of which result in Peak Performance!

In addition, there are some Nutritional items he addresses among the players such as hydration and sustained energy.

One of the primary reasons Dr. Steve Ronco of Torrey Hills Chiropractic works with younger athletes is more than just the typical injuries: Dr. Ronco holds a strong belief that taking care of children in their developmental years can help to prevent minor issues from contributing to a lifetime of discomfort.  This is precisely how and why he got involved with youth sports and childhood care.
