EDINA, MINN., Oct. 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- During Chiropractic Awareness Month, the Minnesota Chiropractic Association (MCA) would like to encourage the public to follow the pros lead and make a chiropractor a regular part of their health maintenance team.

When it comes to professional football players, every team in the National Football League relies on chiropractic care to help prevent injuries and improve on-the-field performance according to the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE).

In a recent NBCE publication, Practice Analysis of Chiropractic, it states that "chiropractic is receiving a great amount of support from athletes in many sports all around the world." Additionally, "many top athletes give much credit to the doctor of chiropractic for their ability to compete in spite of the heavy biomechanical stresses placed on their bodies."

"Chiropractic care is so much more than managing injuries," explained Dr. Jennifer Naas, President of the MCA. She added, "More and more people are beginning to make the connection between chiropractic care and overall health and wellness.  Maintaining a healthy spine and nerve system is vital to achieving optimum health; as every function of the body is controlled and coordinated by the nerve system.  Chiropractic care should be a regular part of everyone's health routine like a regular physical, dental and eye examination."
