At Driven Fit + SWS, our goal is to provide our clients the best health and fitness experience possible. This means our services don’t just start and stop in the gym. Instead, we believe in attaining optimal health and fitness through personal training and a combination of services such as lifestyle education, massage therapy, and chiropractic care. In this article, we will take a closer look at chiropractic care and how it can help achieve health and fitness goals.
Chiropractic care reduces pain. Whether you’re new to working out or you’re a fitness novice, exercise can lead to muscle soreness and fatigue. It’s just part of the process, albeit a good one. The good news is that regular chiropractic adjustments not only alleviate muscle pain and help you get back to the gym faster, but they can also help to reduce post-workout pain as well.
Chiropractic care improves range of motion. When joints are not moving properly, it can result in significant pain. Naturally, this will limit your range of motion and flexibility, thus impacting your ability to train. Chiropractic care focuses on returning the spine and joints to proper alignment so your body can perform at its best.
Chiropractic care decreases the risk of injury. There’s a reason why countless professional athletes receive chiropractic care! Because it works! Regular chiropractic adjustments not only treat an injury, but can also reduce the risk of an injury from occurring. In addition, Dr. Sponaugle (our resident chiropractor and an expert on the musculoskeletal system) will offer tips on how to stretch to prevent injury.
Chiropractic care improves your body’s functions. Through regular chiropractic adjustments, your spine will maintain a proper alignment, thus removing unnecessary pressure off surrounding bones, muscles, and joints that would otherwise compensate for a spinal misalignment. Without this extra stress, the body can function properly and is more likely to heal itself naturally should pain or injury occur.
Chiropractic care improves nerve communication. In addition to causing pain and discomfort (and a slew of other issues!), spinal misalignments also impact how the nerves communicate with the brain. Chiropractic adjustments remove any neurological blockages, which helps to relieve the pain, stress, and discomfort caused by a spinal misalignment. Not only does this allow your workouts to be more effective, but proper nerve communication also helps you recognize when you are hungry and when it’s time to put the fork down, which is key in terms of maintaining a proper weight.
