Vince Lombardi once said, “Football is a game of inches and inches make the Champion”. At the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, Usain Bolt won the Olympic Gold medal in the 100-meter sprint with a time of 9.81 seconds. Yohan Blake, his teammate, finished in a time of 9.93; and off the podium in 4th. That’s less time than it takes to blink.
Finding an edge in competition is a continuous pursuit for the professional athlete. While chiropractic care may not find you 0.12 seconds in the 100, it’s not going to lose it for you either. The goal of sports chiropractic is to help athletes be more biomechanically efficient, to help with recovery from injuries as well as avoid potential injuries. They do this by looking at the movement patterns and identifying any compensatory changes the athlete may have developed over the course of their training.
While we all may not be trying to keep up with the likes of Usain Bolt, or trying to make the Denver Broncos practice squad, we are all trying to be as effective as we can in our daily lives. For business professionals, ‘time is money’. And being as efficient as possible maximizes time/productivity. If we are taking that approach with our business life, why then are we ignoring it with our daily life?
A sports chiropractic perspective applied to the business world focuses on efficiency. Not just the efficiency of movement, but also efficiency as it applies to the treatment strategy. No care plan that would require 6 months of weekly visits. Rather the perspective that cares should address the issues at hand quickly and effectively. Focusing on getting the patient back in the action as fast as possible.
Whether it be getting ready for the Olympics, or ready for the board room, the focus remains the same. What will it take to keep you at the top of your game? Chances are a sports chiropractic approach to your care can benefit you.
