How can getting adjusted by a chiropractor improve athletic performance?
Chiropractors focus on the alignment of the spine, and the overall function of the body. Chiropractic adjustments improve athletic performance by allowing the nervous system and muscular systems to function more optimally. Improved ranges of motion allow for better reaction times. When proper posture and alignment are achieved, the increase in nerve function and blood supply allow the body to heal.
Balance, speed, agility, reaction time and strength can improve when the body is in alignment. Chiropractors are the only doctors trained to provide specific spinal adjustments. Dr. Hourihan of Balance Chiropractic also adjusts the shoulders, hips, knees, ankles, and wrists when necessary. Different sports have different stressors and it is important your chiropractor can identify them. Call Balance Chiropractic, Wyckoff NJ to make an appointment with Dr. Hourihan!
