Humble Chiropractor to Lead Team U.S.A.

Did you get a chance to watch this year’s Olympic opening ceremony? Do you remember your first Olympics?  I remember being swept up in the excitement watching Nadia Comaneci and her perfect 10’s. Since then it’s been amazing to watch the athletes perform each Olympic season.  Did you know that many of the Olympic athletes use chiropractic? In a recent article from The American Chiropractor, Dr. Terry Schroeder discusses his involvement with the Olympics. 

Dr. Schroeder was hired in 2007 as head coach of the USA water polo team.  His team follows an intense workout schedule and he also adjusts his players.  At first there were just a few who would let him to do the chiropractic manipulation on them, soon other players from his team asked to receive chiropractic care.  Athletes are always looking for that edge and these players found that the hands on care of chiropractic joint manipulation plays a huge role in the fine-tuning of their body.  Merrill Moses, considered one of the best goalies in the world, was so inspired by chiropractic that he is planning on going to go to Chiropractic College and then to become a chiropractor. 

Dr. Schroeder and his team travel all over the world for competition and this has helped spread the word about the effectiveness of chiropractic care.  No matter where Dr. Schroeder’s team travels he adjusts his players and athletes from other teams have noticed. This has lead them to approach Dr. Schroeder to see if he would adjust them, including two of the very best athletes in the world. One was Andrija Prlainovic form Serbia and the other Thomas Kasas from Hungary.  Dr. Schroeder and his team are attending the 2012 London Olympics so I wonder what other team players around the world will ask if he will adjust them?
