02 Sep Improving Performance
Spring is now upon us!
It is the time when we increase our activity as the weather gets warmer and the days get longer.
Whether we’re a weekend warrior, an amateur athlete, or exercising for weight loss, we all want to improve our performance. Movement is the key to life! Our nervous system needs oxygen, glucose (simple sugars) and movement (stimulation) to function. If we don’t move we degenerate and the body loses optimal function.
As a Chiropractor, I understand how important movement is.
Spinal movement helps to stimulate our nerves and allow for free flow of communication to pass from our brain to the body.
Chiropractic is a great way to keep progressing with your sport, fitness or exercise. Just as regular exercise is beneficial to our health, so are regular chiropractic adjustments.
Chiropractic adjustments may help you progress by ensuring your nervous system is free of interference caused by spinal subluxations (misalignment of the spine). Subluxations occur when there is decreased motion in the spine resulting in interference in the messages sent between your brain and body. This interference may present as dull aches or pain, lack of coordination, muscles not firing properly or being heavy and weak. The effects of subluxations may also present as decreased energy levels, interrupted sleep or may even be silent, causing less then optimal performance and recovery when exercising.
Are you reaching your optimal performance? Does someone you know need a hand to reach their optimal performance? Maybe they need to know about Chiropractic!
