Professional Runner, Meb Keflezighi, Counts on Chiropractic Care

Dr. Devin Young at Intouch Chiropractic is proud to be the chiropractor for many runners, including Boston Marathon Champion, Meb Keflezighi. Many athletes have recognized that they have highly improved performance when they are under consistent chiropractic care, but have you ever thought about why?

When the body is working optimally, we perform at a higher level, we recover faster, and we incur fewer injuries. What do Michael Phelps, Usain Bolt, Jerry Rice, Meb Keflezighi, and Kobe Bryant have in common? In addition to being elite professional athletes of their chosen sports, they are all dedicated to optimizing their body with regular chiropractic care.

“I have seen Dr. Devin Young as my chiropractor for years.  As an elite athlete, recovery and therapy is essential to staying healthy and competitive.  I go to Dr. Young twice a week when I am training.  He is very knowledgeable and professional.  I am very thankful to have him locally to keep me healthy.  If you are looking for a chiropractor, go see Dr. Devin Young”

– Meb Keflezighi

The Master Controller

You may know that chiropractors are experts in spinal care, but did you know that the primary reason chiropractors are concerned about spinal health is because the spine surrounds and protects the central nervous system. The central nervous system is the “master controller”, because it controls every other system in the body. If spinal misalignments are present, the nervous system will be affected. And when the nervous system is affected, your performance will suffer, your recovery will be slowed, and you will be more likely to be injured.

“I’ve been going to a chiropractor for as long as I can remember. It is as important to my training as is the practice of my swing” – Tiger Woods

Chiropractic adjustments remove misalignments in your spine, allowing the nervous system to function at or near 100%. Chiropractic care gives athletes an edge over their competition, allowing a higher level of performance, along with a decreased risk of injury. Improved performance, better flexibility, faster recovery time, and fewer injuries are some of the benefits associated with chiropractic care- it’s Meb Keflezighi’s secret!
