Pro Soccer Team Turns to Chiropractic Care in Their Return to Action


With the return of the New York Cosmos to the New York City soccer community and Major League Soccer (MLS), many are thrilled to see the tradition and entertainment that it missed for so long upon the team’s departure. The team has come back with an updated logo, a new brand, and a whole new respect for musculoskeletal health.

The New York Cosmos have announced a partnership with the practice known as Block Chiropractic Sports and Wellness, which is committed to improving the musculoskeletal health outcomes of these athletes for the entire duration of the season and beyond. Dr. Richard Block, a partner at this practice, understands that chiropractic care is extremely useful in promoting positive musculoskeletal outcomes, increasing the athletes’ flexibility and strength, extending the duration of training periods that the athletes, and various other facets of being a professional athlete.

An additional component of musculoskeletal health in professional athletes can also be instrumental in preventing injuries given the sometimes grueling nature of the Cosmos’ schedule. Regularly receiving chiropractic treatment keeps the spinal column and neck properly aligned, ensures that the body is moving throughout proper locomotion processes, and that the muscles and nerves in problematic areas are provided with the right internal environment to carry out their function. With this environment, the potential to become injured decreases significantly. Even if injuries do occur, chiropractic care plays a role in assisting the athlete in the recovery process making their return to game action much quicker.

Both parties involved in the partnership are looking forward to what the team will be able to accomplish with chiropractic care provision on a regular basis. The staff of Block Chiropractic Sports and Wellness all have high levels of expertise and certification in multiple different spinal manipulation techniques, such as the Graston technique and the active release technique. With special attention to each athlete individually, the chiropractic team has the ability to form care pathways that will help the team altogether while still tailoring more intensive care delivery for the athletes themselves.
