A note to athletes involved in high-impact or contact sports
If you have had hard or repeated impacts to the head, or concussions, it is highly recommended that you have your atlas bone checked for subluxations. A subluxated atlas can significantly impact your body awareness (and coordination), performance, and ability to focus. While chiropractic is often beneficial throughout training and competition, the ideal time to begin chiropractic care (especially for the atlas) is during the off-season. This is to allow the body time to recover and stabilize before heavy training begins again.
*As with all techniques and therapies, a thorough consultation and examination is necessary to determine if a person is a candidate for that type of care, and results will vary from person to person.
