It’s Spring — Welcome Baseball Season
Baseball is 90% mental, the other half is physical. – Lawrence P. “Yogi” Berra, American Baseball Hall of Famer. Except for the math Yogi was right and that’s why baseball and chiropractic go together so well.
Nearly a hundred years ago the New York Yankees became the first major league team to travel with a chiropractor. Richard van Rumpt, DC was chiropractor to Babe Ruth and the other Yankee greats (as well as many other famous people). It’s not just a matter of keeping baseball players free from injuries or getting them back in the game faster; chiropractic prevents injuries by keeping people balanced, with a natural range of motion, better focus and better brain-body communication — that’s where the 90% mental comes from. Every muscle in your body needs proper communication with your brain, over your nerves.
Chiropractic also helps your brain function better when we release stress on your spinal column. That’s why athletes say that chiropractic can give them the “winning edge.”
By the way, do you need a chiropractor for your little (and not so little) league team? Discuss it with us. Chiropractors work with teams but we also work with individual professional (and amateur) tennis, golf, football, gymnastics, track and field and other athletes as well.
