March 28, 2014 — As springtime sports kick into gear, ScripHessco highlights the important role that chiropractic plays in optimizing athletic performance. All athletes, including those in amateur leagues, school teams, and youth sports programs, reap the benefits of greater endurance, improved functionality, faster return-to-play, and avoidance of habit-forming painkillers.
“Chiropractic care helps athletes of all ages to perform at their best, helping them to obviate and better address injuries,” says Kray Kibler, CFO, ScripHessco. “With milder weather and the return to baseball, golf, tennis, track and other spring sports, doctors of chiropractic (DCs) play an important role in delivering preventive care for tendinitis, stress fractures, torn rotator cuffs and muscle spasms that could sideline activities.”
Professional sports organizations across the spectrum rely on the unique care that DCs deliver, and today many college and high school teams are including access to chiropractic care.
“An integrative approach is critical for optimizing care for athletes,” Kibler adds. “As more organizations, coaches, and athletic trainers recognize the value of chiropractic care, athletes gain a competitive edge. A DC on the healthcare team adds to the well-rounded approach to healthcare as some pro teams will not go anywhere without their chiropractor.”
ScripHessco is the leading supplier to the chiropractic profession, offering an unparalleled selection of supplies and equipment for a one-stop shopping experience, as well as value-added services that help chiropractors improve their patient outcomes.
Spencer Baron, DC, team chiropractor for the Miami Dolphins, adds, “It’s gratifying to witness the growing recognition of chiropractic as a valued approach for promoting wellness, improving sports performance, hastening injury rehabilitation and helping to maintain career longevity.”
