Well, wasn’t that final series of games amazing? Nationals win it. Do you know what’s more amazing? They failed to win a single game at home all season and what’s more, were never in front at any time of those home games. With that record, to come through and win the World Series is incredible.
And for a certain Max Scherzer who thought his personal experience in the series might have been over after the 4th game, to be involved in this deciding game came something as a huge relief for him.
Hours prior to that fifth game his neck locked up meaning he couldn’t even lift his arm. Competing in any game at that point looked a way off.
But after a cortisone shot and a series of chiropractic treatments which really loosened him up, he was available for this final and decisive game. And what a finale it was. Trailing by two runs coming into the 7th innings, the Nationals upped their game to hammer past the Astros and take the title.
Scherzer played his part of course and his performance gives chiropractic care once again, a big boost in proof that it is a very good treatment option for back and neck pain. All baseball and NFL teams have their own chiropractors on board to help players with injuries and also to help them remain injury free.
Many studies have consistently shown chiropractic to work. One such study compared treatment of back pain patients with standard medical care against chiropractic care. Over a 4 week period, around 56% of patients who were treated by a medical doctor stated a 30% improvement in pain relief. In contrast, the 94% of the chiropractic group experienced that same amount of relief over the same period.
Chiropractic care works and it has numerous advantages over standard medication. It’s conservative. It is quick. It is safe. There are minimal side effects (if any). And there is no chance of having a bad addiction to it. Compare that to the opioid crisis we currently see in the country.
Chiropractic care works. Top athletes use it. It helped Max Scherzer to win his title with the Nationals. It can help everyone.
