Great Chiropractic Care And Baseball?

It is a very important thing for all of us to remember that
our bones and muscles, just like any other part of our
bodies, can wear down with time and over use. As you sit,
sleep, walk, drive and any other activity, the different
positions have a wide range of effects on the body
function. Normal wear and tear takes place on anything,
even the most well built machine or the most well developed

As such, it should come as no real surprise that athletes
are prone to even more wear and tear than those of us who
live a little more sedentary lifestyle. With baseballs
coming at you 100 miles per hour on a slow day, and sliding
into home plate to make that last inning saving run for
your team, as well as swinging a bat at all speeds to
connect with a fastball, the chances of a neck or back
injury or pain are good. In fact, given a profession like
baseball, the chances of pain in the neck or back seem

This probably accounts for why so many baseball teams seem
to be getting on board with chiropractic and chiropractors
in recent months and years.

A story that gathered a great deal of attention a year or
so ago was one which was entitled, "Phillies Get Cole Hamel
a Chiropractor." The Philadelphia Phillies had agreed, at
the request of pitcher Cole Hamel to get the team a
chiropractor to travel with them. They were adding one on
staff, rather than making the whole team go out to find one
in the cities they visited throughout the country.

The story was something of a nine days wonder in
Pennsylvania, and we all chalked it up to the fact that
chiropractic care wasn't something that was normally part
of the professional sports team.

It makes perfect sense. Seeing a chiropractor on a regular
basis can help you to move more freely, to keep your
musculoskeletal system healthier and even to prevent
injuries. Adding a key element such as a chiropractor to
the medical team of a large baseball team just makes good
business sense for the team. Keeping your players as
healthy as possible means you flat out win more games.
Chiropractics aren't new to baseball. As far back as the
1920's a chiropractor traveled with the New York Yankees.
An author, Cash Asher, wrote the story in the mid-40s and
claimed at that point that the Yankees didn't want anyone
else to know that he traveled with them. That was their
secret recipe to success.

More than one team from the NFL has a chiropractor working
with them, while multiple other professional athletic teams
and organizations have signed on their own team
