Being back in Canada after so many years away (15 years to be precise), maybe it’s fitting that my first chiropractic blog post is about hockey. First let me say, it’s great to be back in Canada. Secondly, we had no idea what to expect when we moved to Montreal. But any concerns we had quickly disappeared as we soon realised that we absolutely love it here. And lastly, man I missed hockey. Plus, I’ve never seen such passionate hockey fans as those in Montreal.
But what does hockey have to do with chiropractic?
It seems to me that most of my patients (and most of the public) don’t know that a huge number of professional athletes use chiropractic for a multitude of reasons:
- injury prevention
- faster recovery from injury
- better sports performance
- better health generally
- preventing arthritis – there’s a lot of reasons.
So when I found out that it was a chiropractor, Dr Ted Carrick, who got Sidney Crosby back on the ice in no time at all, after months of making no progress, I thought I better write about it.
For those interested, here’s a link to a story in the Montreal Gazette:
OK. But how does that help you? It’s very simple, chiropractic works based on this basic principle:
If your nervous system isn’t working properly (as Sidney’s wasn’t), you’re not working properly. Period.
If chiropractic can help the world’s best athletes recover from injury faster and perform better, just think what it can do for you.
