People living an active lifestyle want to be sure that their body can perform at its absolute BEST!
Whether you’re an avid hiker, swimmer, boxer, Crossfit athlete, or weightlifter, there is no greater feeling than hitting a PR (personal record) and going as hard as you can during your training, which makes chiropractic care that much more essential for your health, performance, and recovery.
Chiropractic adjustments to the spine do the following three things:
1. HEAL – The first step of every chiropractic adjustment to the spine is designed to HEAL your body. The goal of chiropractic care is to NOT mask your symptoms but rather address the underlying cause of the problem and fix it.
Many of us are guilty of ignoring issues until it becomes a bigger problem, also for many we may go as far as justifying the pain as “normal”, however, we would encourage you to think otherwise here at Orlando City Health and Wellness. Though back pain is COMMON in our society (80% of individuals at some point in their lives will have back pain) this does not make it NORMAL. Nerve compression from spinal misalignment can greatly interfere with your ability to heal after training, this is why it’s imperative to be getting adjustments to give your body the ABILITY to heal.
2. PREVENTION – Wouldn’t it be great to prevent injuries before they occur?
A two-year study conducted on 17,000 individuals showed that patients who had regular chiropractic adjustments reduced hospitalizations for back pain by 87.6% and work loss by 75.5%.
With regular chiropractic adjustments, you can prevent injuries before they occur.
There is no such thing as a spine transplant, and the spine you have today is going to be the same spine you have 10-15 years from now. If you were only allowed one vehicle your entire life, wouldn’t you take great care of it? This is why preventive care is so important (oil changes, tire rotations, car washes, etc). Chiropractic care can detect subluxations of the spine and reduce the stress on your nervous system; it can even decrease the degeneration of your joints and connective tissues, also known as arthritis.
3. PERFORMANCE – Did you know that chiropractic adjustments to the spine can make you strong?
The study: Effects of Chiropractic Care on Strength, Balance, and Endurance in Active-Duty U.S. Military Personnel with Low Back Pain: A Randomized Controlled Trial determined that “Active-duty military personnel receiving chiropractic care exhibited improved strength and endurance, as well as reduced Low Back PAin intensity and disability, compared with a wait-list control.”
Chiropractic care has also been shown to improve sleep and promote cognitive ability!
