Chiropractic & Fitness Sports

I ran Auburn's Majorpalooza 5K yesterday and enjoyed the run immensely. What an inspiring crowd. People getting together to have a good time and help out their neighbors is a great way to spend your free time. Being devoted to good health and kindness towards others who need an extra helping hand are two important traits.
While I was running the race, chiropractic was on my mind, as usual. I saw a lot of foot flare. This is easy to notice if you watch people walk or run. Their feet flare outward and their toes are pointing outward so much that they are actually putting imbalanced pressure on the sides of their feet. Their knees and hips also rotate outward weakening these joints and throwing off the balance of the spine.

Runners can run a long time without pain despite these mechanical blasts their spines keep receiving. All athletes including runners need to make spine care their priority. Slowing down due to wear and tear on the joints is always a concern but the damage done to the rest of the nervous system needs to be considered, as well. I have often talked about the long term affects of poor posture such as decreased heart and lung capacity as well as slowed digestion. Hormonal changes are also a concern, even if the diet it good. The nerves still direct the body how to receive nutrients to the cells.

I encourage all fitness enthusiasts to stick with regular spine care with the same passion they have for their high protein smoothies. Chiropractic is an important spoke in the wheel of fitness and nutrition.

Remember, you get to choose.

See you at the table...the adjusting table.
