Chiropractic Injury Prevention for Work, Personal, and Sports Activities

Injury prevention should be on everyone’s mind. All jobs, sports, and activities have the potential to cause some form of injury/s. Sustaining an injury, no matter how big or small can take a toll on the body. It can force an individual to take a lengthy break from work, school, sports, etc, or stop completely.

Some form of rest is usually necessary to expedite the healing process but there are other ways to help with injury prevention. The most common type of injury that can be prevented is overuse/repetitive motion/s injuries. Many individuals realize that an underlying issue for injuries is spinal/body misalignment.  

Injury prevention

A few ways that injury prevention can be optimized for various activities:
  • Full body stretching regularly will keep the body flexible
  • A nutrient-rich diet
  • A regular strength training regimen
  • Avoiding getting into a sedentary lifestyle
  • Stress management methods/techniques
  • Developing the body’s ability to learn healthy movement/s
  • Regular chiropractic, physical therapy
  • Health coaching
 

Misalignment and injury

When the spine is out of alignment the entire body goes out of balance and begins to function improperly and eventually breaks down. The nerve, blood circulation energy is affected. This compromises:
  • Tissue health
  • The body’s natural healing abilities
  • Normal body coordination and movement
This increases the risk of injury/s. Proper posture and body mechanics have a primary role in injury prevention. Proper spinal alignment allows the body’s ability to coordinate effective, pain/injury-free movement. Better coordination promotes optimal performance with less effort and corrects/improves muscle strain, tissue damage, and enhances bone health.

Proper spinal alignment

Chiropractic is a specialized expert approach that focuses on addressing core issues related to spinal alignment. Chiropractic treatment will locate and address spinal misalignments that individuals did not even know were there. The chiropractic approach will help establish a solid foundation for regular daily activities without injury. When the spine/body is properly-aligned nerve flow is restored and the body can move with reduced risk of injury or complication/s. Contact a chiropractic specialist and see what they can offer.

Body Composition Clinic

 
 

Too Much Sitting Health Consequences

When the body is in a seated position, the gluteal muscles, abdominal muscles, and legs remain static. When sitting for a long time day after day with no exercise/movement the muscles begin to degenerate/weaken and go into a pseudo form of atrophy from the lack of engaged movement/exercise. Metabolism is linked with body composition meaning that more muscle increases metabolism and helps burn more calories. Muscle loss, especially from the lower body which is the largest muscle group, can lead to continued fat gain if exercise is not implemented and an unhealthy diet is not changed. Gradual muscle loss from the lower body can hurt functional strength and with age increases the risk of falls.
