A group of footballers experienced significantly fewer hamstring strains and leg injuries over a season.
They did one thing differently. They were checked and adjusted by a chiropractor before the season began.
The season-long study by researchers (Macquarie University) involved 59 players from two clubs. According to the author, "The group which received the traditional management alone [stretching, massage, conditioning etc.] had a 17% chance of hamstring injury and a 28% chance of a lower limb muscle strain." In contrast, the chiropractic group "had just a 4% chance of a hamstring injury and a 4% chance of a lower limb muscle strain. "
