Top Athletes That Enjoyed The Benefits Of Chiropractic Care

Top Athletes That Enjoyed The Benefits Of Chiropractic Care

Tiger Woods, Usain Bolt, Christiano Ronaldo, and Michael Jordan. What do they all have in common? They all make a living competing in their specific sports. And when you make a living as a professional athlete, it is critical that you stay at your best.

Most athletes are constantly looking out for the latest cutting-edge treatment to keep their game optimal. However, at the end of the day, they always fall back to fundamental methods that offer true benefits. And in this article, chiropractic care.

For a long time, many of these world-class athletes that we will be mentioning, have relied on chiropractic care to prevent and alleviate injuries. They also rely on chiropractic care to recuperate as well as boost their range of motion and form. 

So, without further ado, let us take a look at some of the top athletes who enjoyed the benefits of chiropractic care.

1. Arnold Schwarzenegger

Seven times Mr. Olympia, Arnold Schwarzenegger is probably one of the most renowned bodybuilders in history. He has been acting in Hollywood since 1982, taking a break in 2003 to be the Governor of California, after which he returned to acting in 2011. Yet, many have forgotten that his roots were in athletics.

However, do you know that Arnold is a strong advocate of chiropractic care? In fact, everybody in his family gets regular adjustments from his own personal chiropractor, who has helped provide Arnold with several elbow, shoulder, and lower back pain treatments. He once stated that everybody needs to see chiropractic care as a must-have rather than an alternative.

2. Venus Williams

One half of the Williams sisters, seven Grand Slam singles titles, and former world number one in both doubles and singles, Venus Williams is the epitome of women’s tennis. In fact, together with her sister, Serena, they were credited with introducing a new era of athleticism and power to women’s tennis.

But do you know that Venus loves chiropractic? She once stated in an interview that she believes chiropractic gives her the flexibility that she requires in her games. In fact, she surrounds herself with as much holistic care as possible, with her team consisting of a sports psychologist, skill coach, nutritionist, physical therapist, and chiropractor.

3. Michael Phelps

Most people would have heard of Michael Phelps. He is one the most decorated and most successful Olympians in history, having won a total of 28 medals in his career. Despite swimming being known as one of the easiest sports on the joints, it does not mean that swimmers cannot benefit from chiropractic care.

In fact, Michael is quite known among the swimming community for being a fervent advocate of chiropractic care, implementing a variety of techniques into his training regimen. He often talks about how chiropractic care has helped to improve his performance and flexibility, which are two critical elements that give him an edge over his competition.

4. Michael Jordan

The man, the legend. Michael Jordan is not only a world-renowned basketball player, but he is also a global cultural icon, having endorsed the Nike Air Jordan series. During his career, he has won many championships. However, apart from his prolific achievements, he was known as ‘His Airness’ and ‘Air Jordan’ for his leaping capabilities and slam dunking from the free-throw line.

It is hard to imagine that there is nothing apart from constant practice that made him the legend he is today. However, in many instances, Michael credited his achievements with chiropractic care.

 He once stated that he did not know how much he could improve until he started chiropractic treatments. Since starting them, he has improved significantly both physically and mentally. Chiropractic care helped keep his joints limber and stable, allowing him to remain flexible and fast on the court.

5. Usain Bolt

Usain Bolt does not need any introduction. In fact, till today, he still holds the world record for the 4x100m relay, 200m, and 100m sprints. His incredible sprint achievements have earned him the nickname “Lightning Bolt”. What many do not know is that Usain placed immense importance on chiropractic care to help manage injuries and prepare him for his races.

Usain suffered from scoliosis since he was young, and because of that, it hampered his athletic abilities as he often got injured in the process. However, instead of going for surgery or using a brace to correct his scoliosis, Usain turned to chiropractic care. He once stated that he does not always win gold medals. However, when he does, he gets adjusted first. Seems like chiropractic care might win you a gold medal.


Apart from these five, other athletes, such as Tiger Woods, Tom Brady, Lance Armstrong, and Christiano Ronaldo, have claimed the benefits of chiropractic care as the secret to their performance and achievements.

And if you do not believe it, why not try it out for yourself? You do not have to be an athlete to experience the benefits of chiropractic care. Even employees can benefit from a corporate wellness program.
