"CHOKE" UNDER PRESSURE? By Dr. Rob Anderson

MANY ATHLETES "CHOKE" UNDER EXTREME PRESSURE TO EXCEL!

If two athletes competing against each other were ranked equally, and each athlete was of the exact same skill, ability and fitness level, and both had the identical desire to win, who would come out on top at the final blow of the whistle? In the opinion of many exercise physiologists and top medical researchers, as well as some of the world's top professional athletes, the competitor that is under regular chiropractic care would have the athletic edge every time!

POSTURE CHOKES YOUR LIFELINE  Posture affects and moderates every physiologic function from breathing to hormone production. Spinal pain, mood, headache, blood pressure, and lung capacity are among the functions most easily influenced by posture. Many symptoms, including pain, may be moderated or eliminated by chiropractic through improved posture." J. Lennon, BM, MM, C, Norman Shealy, MD, Roger K. Cady, MD. Posture/Respiratory Modulation of Autonomic Function Pain and Health. AJPM, Vol. 1 No.1 Jan. 1994

"After a short time under care with Dr. Rob, I noticed in training for an Iron-Man that I could breathe better and my training heart rate dropped 5 beats per minute." Testimonial from Joe A. age 27

CHOKED LUNGS  Increases in pulmonary function were observed with chiropractic adjustments to the upper neck vertebrae. Kessinger, D.C. Changes in Pulmonary Function Associated with Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractic Care, JVSR 1: ( 3): 1-7

Dr. Rob states, "Every day in our office people experience 15-100% improvement in breathing capacity." R. Anderson, D.C. Vital Capacity and Neuro Function. Vitality Chiropractic. 2006.

OPTIMAL SPORTS PERFORMANCE  Athletic Performance improved significantly with chiropractic care. Performance enhancements include increased muscle strength, increased capillary count, decreased blood pressure and decreased pulse rate. Chiropractic athletes improved 16.7% greater than control athletes! Schwartzbauer, D.C. , John Zhang, M.D., Ph.D., et al. Athletic Performance and Physiological Measures in Baseball Players Following Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care: A Pilot Study, JVSR 1: (4): 7.

WHAT IF I CHOKE? When under pressure are you dizzy, trembling, sweating, heart palpitating, not concentrating? Spinal Adjustments have been found to reduce symptoms of anxiety by 80%. Behrendt, D.C., Olsen, D.C. The Impact of Subluxation Correction On Mental Health: Reduction of Anxiety In A Female Patient Under Chiropractic Care, JVSR September 20, 2004, pp 1-10.

HAND EYE SPEED In a hand reaction test measuring the speed of reaction with the hand in response to a visual stimulus, the control group exhibited less than a 1% response while the chiropractic group exhibited more than an 18% response after 6 weeks. After 12 weeks the chiropractic group exhibited more than 30% improvement. Chiropractic effects on athletic ability. Lauro A. Mouch B.   Chiropractic: The Journal of Chiropractic Research and Clinical Investigation. 1991; 6: 84-87

VISUAL ACUITY Visual acuity is vital to any athletic event. Being able to see clearly will make the difference in hitting a line drive or a fly ball and catching the TD pass or losing the game. Chiropractic care has shown in numerous studies to improve visual acuity. Changes in Visual Acuity in Patients Receiving Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractic Care  Robert Kessinger, D.C., Dessy Boneva, D.C. JVSR. [Vol 2, No. 1, p 1-7] Gorman RF: "Monocular scotoma and spinal manipulation: the step phenomenon." JMPT (1996) 19(5):344.
