Be Like Mike: How to Reach Your Full Potential

Home » Blog » Be Like Mike: How to Reach Your Full Potential

Athletes and active people alike are always looking for that edge that keeps them performing at
their best.
And there may not be anyone who embodies that spirit for so many of us more than basketball
legend Michael Jordan.
He won multiple world championships and gold medals and broke just about every record in the
NBA!

So what was a big part of his success?

Well, aside from a tremendous amount of hard work and persistence, here’s a Michael Jordan
quote about chiropractic you may not have heard before…
“I didn’t know how much I could improve until I started seeing a chiropractor. Since I’ve been in
chiropractic, I’ve improved by leaps and bounds both mentally and physically.”
Yep – it’s true.

Why it Matters:

Just like you, Michael Jordan is always striving to reach his full potential both physically and
mentally.
And with that statement, he joined athletes like Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Joe Montana, Jerry
Rice, and Wayne Gretzky.
Each and every one has talked about how chiropractic care helped them stay at the top of their
game, and that should come as no surprise.
With the rigors of pro sports in general and the routine demands these athletes place on their
bodies, it makes sense that chiropractic care would be used to keep them healthy so they can
keep performing at their highest potential.
Here are what other star athletes have had to say about chiropractic.
● “Chiropractic care has been instrumental in my life, both on and off the field…” – quote
attributed to Jerry Rice
● “Performing at my best is important to me and should be to everyone. Getting adjusted
regularly along with practicing other good health habits that my mom helped me to
establish – are all part of my goal to win in life and on the field.” – quote attributed to
Aaron Rodgers
● “I’ve been going to a chiropractor for as long as I can remember, it is as important as the
practice of my swing.” – quote attributed to Tiger Woods.

Next Steps:

Michael Jordan was ahead of his time with his training methods and healthcare choices.
Now, it’s common to see a chiropractor on the sidelines of every professional sport.
Obviously, you don’t need to be a professional athlete to have a reason to want to improve your
health, well-being, and physical performance.
We’re all interested in spending less time managing aches and pains and more time enjoying
the benefits of peak function and strength, so don’t skip that next adjustment!
Also, we hope you’ll do us a favor.
Many people still aren’t aware of the benefits of chiropractic care.
So, the next time someone compliments you on your golf swing or posture, let them know that
chiropractic helped, and you know an excellent sports chiropractor in Franklin, TN!
