Be Like Mike: How to Reach Your Full Potential

Bottom Line: 


Athletes and active people alike are always looking for that edge that keeps them performing at their best.


And there may not be anyone who embodies that spirit for so many of us more than basketball legend Michael Jordan.


He won multiple world championships and gold medals and broke just about every record in the NBA!


So what was a big part of his success?


Well, aside from a tremendous amount of hard work and persistence, here’s a Michael Jordan quote about chiropractic you may not have heard before…


 "I didn't know how much I could improve until I started seeing a chiropractor. Since I've been in chiropractic, I've improved by leaps and bounds both mentally and physically."

 

Yep - it’s true.



Why it Matters: 


Just like you, Michael Jordan is always striving to reach his full potential both physically and mentally.


And with that statement, he joined athletes like Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, and Wayne Gretzky.


Each and every one has talked about how chiropractic care helped them stay at the top of their game, and that should come as no surprise.


With the rigors of pro sports in general and the routine demands these athletes place on their bodies, it makes sense that chiropractic care would be used to keep them healthy so they can keep performing at their highest potential.


Here are what other star athletes have had to say about chiropractic.


“Chiropractic care has been instrumental in my life, both on and off the field...” - quote attributed to Jerry Rice

“Performing at my best is important to me and should be to everyone. Getting adjusted regularly along with practicing other good health habits that my mom helped me to establish – are all part of my goal to win in life and on the field.” – quote attributed to Aaron Rodgers

“I’ve been going to a chiropractor for as long as I can remember, it is as important as the practice of my swing.” - quote attributed to Tiger Woods

 


Next Steps:


Michael Jordan was ahead of his time with his training methods and healthcare choices.


Now, it's common to see a chiropractor on the sidelines of every professional sport.


Obviously, you don't need to be a professional athlete to have a reason to want to improve your health, well-being, and physical performance.


We’re all interested in spending less time managing aches and pains and more time enjoying  the benefits of peak function and strength, so don’t skip that next adjustment!


Also, we hope you’ll do us a favor.


Many people still aren't aware of the benefits of chiropractic care.


So, the next time someone compliments you on your golf swing or posture, let them know that chiropractic helped, and you know an excellent sports chiropractor in Webster!

Testimonials

  • "This was my first chiropractic visit and I will definitely continue to see Dr. Venessa! The space is beautiful and clean. The person working reception was welcoming, knowledgeable and seemed happy to answer my questions. I was able to complete my paperwork before coming in so there was no wait. Dr. Venessa asked me some questions and did a sort of assessment before my adjustment. She kept me informed of what she would be doing and has a nice bedside manner so nothing seemed awkward. She finished my adjustment and I checked out. All in all I had a great experience in the office but what happened after was even better- my energy increased like crazy! At first I didn’t even consider it might have been from my adjustment. I was just talking with my husband when he asked if I thought it may have been from my chiro appointment so I googled it and apparently that’s common! So again, very happy with my experience and I will be back!"
