Dr. Carrion states, "The benefit of the chiropractic adjustment for the athletes is that with a normally functioning nervous system (the brain
and spinal cord which control the muscular system) their muscular
system (the muscles and tendons that create motion) can function
instinctively and that is what separates the average athlete from the
all star athlete."
