Abstract/Notes Objective: To describe the enhanced sporting performance of an elite masters’ racewalker following chiropractic care.Clinical Features: A 50-year-old male elite racewalker preparing for the World Masters Athletic Championships presented for chiropractic care.

Intervention and Outcome: Treatment involved chiropractic spinal manipulative therapy (SMT) and tibiofemoral adjustments. Four days post treatment the patient recorded a two-and-half-minute improvement on his previous personal best (PB) 15km racewalking time. His previous 15km PB was the current state record (set one year earlier) and his 10km PB was the national record (set six years earlier). He was seen twice in the month prior the World Masters event (one visit per fortnight) where the above treatment was administered. The patient returned from the championships with two medals and two further PB performances over the 5km and 10km distances.

Conclusion: There has been minimal research published regarding the enhanced sporting performance of athletes receiving chiropractic care. From this case report and the evidence presented, it appears that chiropractic intervention can play a role in optimizing athletic performance. This should be further investigated in randomized controlled and clinical trials.
