A new pilot study has shown that athletes with ankle problems had improved jumping performance after receiving chiropractic adjustments.
Compared to a group that received a “mock” treatment, those that had adjustments to the ankle joints were able to jump higher after just three weeks. This preliminary research is promising for athletes looking for ways to deal with ankle concerns.
