Wimbledon, The Ashes and The Masters Athletics

Chiropractors are on RED ALERT this July in the UK.

Ever since the 2012 Olympics, the profile of chiropractic in elite sport has rocketed in the UK and now with July being one the busiest summer months for sport, chiropractors are on RED ALERT, not just for the professionals competing in these events but also for those who are inspired to take up a sporting past time this summer.

“It’s amazing how many people get side lined this time of year because they think they are the new Andy Murray or Jennifer Ennis says Carl Irwin ( North London Chiropractor and member of the UCA). People really don’t recognise the repeated stress and load that athletes continuously put on their bodies and what it does to the spine and joints. The care these athletes are under so they can achieve their superhuman feat without seriously injuring themselves is second to non. So jumping up from your desk going off to the park for a game of tennis or cricket is not necessarily the best idea if you have a sedentary job and haven’t looked after yourself properly for some time.”

Chiropractor Carl Irwin practices in North London and works for the British Athletics Medical Services. He will be working at the Masters Athletics in Birmingham on 25th & 26th July.

Sports Chiropractor

Carl further explains that the London 2012 Olympics were the first where the host nation provided chiropractors for all competing athletes. This put sports chiropractic in the forefront of care for all sportsmen and women in the UK. Since then most top sports events have chiropractors available for competitors and now nearly all elite teams and athletes have full time Chiropractors as part of their crew.

A sports chiropractor, like Carl Irwin, does not just treat injuries, they look at the body holistically and relate that to restoring function so to keep athletes at their best without injury. They then have a greater chance of getting the results they desire…winning. Very often the sports chiropractor liases with the medical team and considers aspects such as training programmes, body conditioning, performance enhancement, nutrition and mental preparation when working with athletes.

So if you want to give yourself a sporting chance and want Carl Irwin on your team call 020 8905 4440 or email
