Stress Headaches and Eye Strain

I recommend chiropractic treatments as essential for athletes aiming to enhance their physical condition and prevent injuries. Athletes should consider regular adjustments, ideally varying from weekly during intense training to monthly for general maintenance. High-profile athletes, including Tiger Woods, have emphasized the role of chiropractic in their success, citing significant performance and recovery benefits. Similarly, many NBA players integrate chiropractic care into their routine to handle the demands of the season, ensuring optimal performance and reduced injury risks.
