Chiropractic adjustments allow the body to move as freely as it was designed to do.
When your spine is out of alignment, your muscles commonly spasm or cramp up, causing a decrease in range of motion.
Relieving misalignments throughout the spine helps free up areas of tension in the back and neck, reducing pain and improving mobility.
As a by product, this treatment can also improve your exercise form—especially during overhead lifts—because tight muscles won’t be holding you back.
Misalignments throughout the body slow down healing.
When an athlete is injured, his or her body tries to protect itself with muscle spams and inflammation.
This increases the time it takes for the athlete to heal fully and get back to training or competing.
Because the spine affects many other structures such as nerves, muscles, joints and discs, etc. when there is misalignment it places more pressure/stress on these areas which your brain can interpret as pain.
No matter where the area of discomfort is such as your neck, shoulders, hips, knees or back, etc. an adjustment can help restore and improve function, thereby relieving pain.
