When your back is killing you, or you want to break your weekly (or daily) headache cycle, the chiropractor may come to mind. And that’s wonderful – helping relieve those kinds of pain is indeed the chiropractor’s job. But routine chiropractic care can also play a critical role in active lifestyles. If your body tends to be in motion more than at rest, a holistic chiropractic approach, like the one offered here by Dr. Lynelle McSweeney in Reno, can help keep it balanced, flexible, and fully functional.
THE RIGHT SUPPORT FOR ACTIVE LIFESTYLES
No matter what sort of activity you engage in – running, weight lifting, cycling, fitness classes, club teams – we all use the same bones and muscles to move. The spinal column has 24 independent vertebrae, which is why we’re able to twist and bend. It also helps to protect our nervous systems, and it coordinates muscles, tissues, and organs in the body. Spinal subluxations can be detrimental to nerve communication between the brain and the body, and pain is usually the result.
Holistic chiropractic care can help restore proper alignment to reduce discomfort, but that’s not all.
Active people who enjoy routine chiropractic care usually notice things like:
- Better range of motion
- Faster recovery times
- Improved flexibility and performance
- Stronger immune systems
Active people may also struggle with localized pain in the knees, elbows, shoulders, wrists, and other spots. And yes, these are often issues a chiropractor can address.
