The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness about the value of chiropractic care, congratulates professional golfer, Zach Johnson, on his recent victory at the 2015 British Open.
According to experts at the F4CP, the good health and impressive athletic performance displayed by Johnson can, in part, be attributed to the care he receives from doctors of chiropractic, including his father, David Johnson, DC, and PGA Tour chiropractor,Troy Van Biezen, DC.
“Zach has been receiving chiropractic care his entire life,” said David Johnson, a graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic, who notes that his son continues to receive regular adjustments while on and off the PGA Tour. “Throughout his professional career, Zach has relied on chiropractic to help prevent, manage, and treat the wide array of injuries that athletes are susceptible to, and to help keep his body functioning at its best.”
Doctors of chiropractic are specifically trained to provide hands-on care that helps to improve range of motion, flexibility, muscle strength, and other key performance factors, as well as counsel on nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle choices. Today, Van Biezen travels with Zach Johnson and several other professional golfers, including 2015 Masters Tournament and U.S. Open winner, Jordan Spieth.
“Over the years, chiropractic care has become a foundational healthcare element offered to amateur and professional athletes, including golfers, to help alleviate pain and prepare the body for peak athletic performance,” said Van Biezen, a graduate of Parker University. “Regular chiropractic care helps to maintain proper postural balance, reduce the risk of injury, and improve recovery time and overall health.”
Kent Greenawalt, chairman, F4CP, is extremely pleased to witness well-received public figures, including Zach Johnson and Jordan Spieth, speak out on behalf of chiropractic care, stating, “The public must be informed of the countless health benefits associated with chiropractic.” He continues, “This tremendous level of positive exposure is exactly what the profession needs to advance to the next level and help individuals of all ages receive the care they deserve.”
