SB Nation recently published an article that addressed the growing use of chiropractic care for baseball players in Major League Baseball (MLB). To learn more about the use of chiropractic care by baseball players the post’s author spoke with a chiropractor in Scottsdale, AZ, who sees several of the team’s players during Spring Training.
“When a player first comes in it is usually because their trainer has tried everything possible in the clubhouse to fix them but there’s an issue with either pain, loss of motion, chronic usage, tendonitis or overall wellbeing that still needs to be addressed. Many of the players have told me that I do a very extensive one hour exam. After this orthopedic, neurological and chiropractic exam I determine if radiographs are needed. If so, we take all needed X-rays and I have the player come back the next day or later after I have had time to sit down and study all the results… When I have determined the cause of the problem, the magic begins to happen! I want to make sure that all of their nerves are functioning at 100 percent capacity.” – Dr. Alicia Meyers
