Why is it important for runners to get Chiropractic care?
Running is a one of the best things our bodies can do. It’s great for people’s health, mindset, and their life. And, if there are any distortions or dysfunctions in the body, it can cause wear and tear on the body. Chiropractic care looks for where is your body being twisted, pulled, or bent because of the trauma of everyday life. As those layers of stress and trauma are cleared your body can become more flexible and more functional.
In order for runners to perform their best, they need to be able activate muscles in the right sequence and right timing. If there’s a dysfunction in the neural control of the muscles then running form and performance are affected. This can show up in your life as tight shoulders and upper back, tight IT bands, aches in the thighs and legs, headaches, or decreased endurance during a run. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a natural way to clear the layers of stress from your body, improve function, increase endurance, and make you a better runner? That is where chiropractic care comes into play for you.
