Chiropractic Care Helps Figure Skaters Improve Fitness

Three figure skaters in their late 30s improved their fitness level through chiropractic care.

Feb. 1, 2013 - PRLog -- Figure skating is a very strenuous sport. It can strain the muscles in the back, neck, arms and legs.

Because of its high level of difficulty and the strain it may cause to various parts of the body, older figure skaters usually retire from the sport when they reach a certain age. This is not so for figure skaters Ninotchka Aschow, Choeleen Loundagin and William Abel who are in their late 30s and still very active in the sport.

Their secret in staying in shape is regular chiropractic treatment, which they say is an essential part of their training in preparation for their dream to win gold medals. Chiropractic care does not only aid in treating their injuries. It has also opened their eyes to a more holistic approach by improving their wellness, nutrition and mental acuity.

Choeleen Loundagin is a skating coach who was presented an opportunity to participate in the pair’s competition. When she grabbed the chance, she went into an intensive training program with partner, William Abel. “Going from singles to pairs was a tricky transition, however seeing a chiropractor two to three times a week allowed me to develop the additional muscle and upper body strength for lifting, as well as keeping my alignment consistent,” Loundagin, who won gold with Abel in the first championship pair’s competition at the U.S. Adult Championships, stated. “I think it is important to take care of your body and appreciate what it is doing for you. Chiropractic care definitely helped me become stronger in areas that I was lacking.”

Abel, who used to visit his chiropractor just for adjustment purposes, started visiting more often when he learned that chiropractic care is very useful for preventive care.

Chiropractic care is a popular health care choice of many athletes. ChiroCarolina, a chiropractic clinic in Charlotte, NC, is also home to many known athletes in Charlotte.
