The Stars

Chiropractic care will improve your sporting performance no matter what level of sport you play whether it’s a better golf swing or more balance and coordination in boxing or martial arts. This is coupled with a decrease in your injury rate and a reduction in your injury healing time when you are injured.

The following quote sums it up…

I would estimate that in excess of 90% of all world-class athletes use Chiropractic care to prevent injuries and to increase their performance potential.”
Sean Atkings, Ph D Exercise Physiologist

AC Milan Football Team

Ac Milan are the current world and European club champions. In 1998 Dr. J.P. Meeserman (a chiropractor) was signed by Silvio Berlusconi who had been Dr Meeserman’s patient, by A.C Milan football club to turn around the clubs injury problems and improve the performance of the footballing staff.

Dr Meeserman immediately implemented a non medical, chiropractic setup.The results he has been able to achieve have been nothing short of amazing. In his first year he reduced pharmaceutical use by 94% and in the same year reduced the injury rate at the club by a remarkable 90%.

Because of the reduced injury rate the club was able to cut down to a playing squad of 23 players from 35. The benefits of chiropractic care have been able to extend many players careers and the average age of the squad is currently 29, the oldest in European professional football.

Evander Holyfield

The only ever four time heavy weight champion of the world Evander never failed to see his chiropractor before a fight.
