Well, summer is finally here! Individual activity levels are on the rise! I see more and more people on the roads getting their cardio in however and whenever they can. Increasing cardiovascular activity, such as running, biking, swimming or other exercise programs are certainly very beneficial. However, as with any exercise program, the possibility of injury exists and must be accounted for. Hamstrings, quadriceps, and calf muscle strains are very common injuries seen in those increasing their cardiovascular activity, but also are nothing that can’t be straightened out with a massage tool. Low back pain and ligament damage is also a very real possibility. A successful exercise program is one that provides a complete training program that minimizes the likelihood of injury by utilizing chiropractic care and massage therapy to assist in injury prevention and maximize your performance.
Exercise related injuries are typically due to faulty biomechanics. Faulty biomechanics are the result of spinal misalignments and muscle imbalances. When the body is not moving the way it was designed, it places unneeded stress and excessive loads on one side or area of body. Over time, that side of the body will begin to fail and injury will occur in the back or in one of the larger muscle groups in the leg. This will undoubtedly reduce your ability to perform at the level you know you can. Regular chiropractic and massage therapy can detect and correct these issues before they become a major problem. The combined result of chiropractic and massage therapy is improved fitness, heath, and overall well-being! Go get checked out today.
