Boost Your Athletic Performance With Chiropractic & More

excited lady working outWhether you’re a die-hard CrossFitter, occasional golfer, ultra runner or weekend warrior, you want to perform at your best. While many people think of back and neck pain relief when chiropractic care is mentioned, this form of natural health care has many benefits for athletes.

Chiropractic: It Starts With a Tuned Up Nervous System

If your nervous system is functioning better, your body is functioning better. We see this all the time, especially with people trying to achieve a personal best. What are your athletic goals: Running faster? Lifting more weight? Jumping higher? Hitting a ball farther?

Whatever your goals, getting adjusted regularly (e.g. every other week or once a month), can yield dramatic improvements in athletic performance. All because your nervous system is functioning optimally. With chiropractic care, you’re also less likely to get injured if your nervous system is in alignment.

Massage: Works Those Muscles

When a segment in the spine isn’t moving properly, the brain recognizes that and immediately goes into guarding. The muscles will guard around problem areas, as the body tries to protect itself from further injury the only way it knows how. So if those muscles guard, you get restrictions in movement, such as running or jumping.

However, when there’s less restriction in the spine, the better an athlete’s performance due to less muscle guarding. The adjustment restores motion, but massage therapy helps with the muscle component.

Nutrition: Fuel Your Body for Maximum Results

You’ve heard the saying, “You are what you eat.” That’s certainly true. If your diet consists of highly processed foods versus whole foods, you’ll feel sluggish, your health will suffer, and you won’t be at your athletic best. The good news is that if you fuel your body with whole foods rich in nutrients, you’ll have more energy, be healthier, and engage in your sport of choice at a higher level.
