Enhancing Athletic Performance With Chiropractic

By | Benefits of Chiropractic | No Comments

The science of Chiropractic is founded on the premise that a proper Central Nerve System is essential to controlling and regulating the functioning of the human body by being able to properly ADAPT to the loads of internal and external stressors. This is impressive, am I right?  Guess what? The science is not new. The founding principles have existed way before the application of Chiropractic existed.

Innately the Central Nerve System (CNS) uses nerves to control every system in your body. Much like electricity uses wires as a conduit to travel across. Just like training the muscles through training and practice the spinal column needs regular check-ups during the stress you place on it. There is no healing force outside of the human body – Dr. Issac Jennings

Athletes are always looking for the edge to make sure the body is in peak potential. Understand when minor misalignments of the spine, referred to as subluxations occur they immediately cause nerve interference and weaken the entire structure of the human body. When subluxations exist for a period of time they inhibit biomechanical function that the athlete needs. Athletic injuries are often caused by improper biomechanics of muscle imbalances within the spine. Over time subluxations begin to inhibit performance which means

  • Delayed muscle response
  • Slower muscle contractions
  • More susceptible to injuries
  • Delayed mental activity
  • Etc Etc

Dr. Wolpert a Neuroscientist said it best with this statement – To understand movement is to understand the whole brain. And therefore it’s important to remember when you are studying memory, cognition, sensory processing, they’re there for a reason, and that reason is ACTION.

The body feeds on motion, and being an athlete, proper motion is KEY to optimal performance. Overuse is the top concern for athletes and combating the negative impact begins by making sure the CNS is free of interference to allow the body to heal after repetitive use. It’s not just the competitive nature of maintaining a healthy and optimal CNS, overall it benefits you in the long run.

Hope Hope Hooray!

There is a sense of overwhelming peace when you know that there is hope in any given situation. This simple four-letter word provides security for not only the future, but also for time and space where one currently resides. Commonly seen today in the medical model approach, hope seems to be the first thing that is stripped away. Labels of weakness, dis-ease, and fear understandingly drive any mind to a place where optimism simply cannot exist.

We are here to tell you that there is hope! The body is not weak nor is it destined for sickness. All of us have an intelligent, self-governing and self-regulating system that controls every function of the body and its healing capabilities. In fact, this innate intelligence that is in you today, has been with you since one cell became two in your mothers womb – Pretty neat. However this internal homeostatic-system can become reduced when bombarded with external factors. Similar to poor cell reception, when stress, i.e. physical, chemical, or emotional stress is placed on the body, necessary nerve communication becomes less than optimal, insert dis-ease here.

A chiropractors primary responsibility is to locate this undo stress placed on the Central Nerve System via vertebral subluxations. When this subluxation is corrected and optimal communication of our Central Nerve System is restored, healing will naturally occur. Healing is an inborn potential that simply needs to be unleashed. Bj Palmer said it best, “While other professions are concerned with changing the environment to suit the weakened body; Chiropractic is concerned with strengthening the body to suit the environment.” We know that the body needs no help once we remove nerve interference, and this is the role of the chiropractor. Outside of altering normal physiology (drugs) and altering normal biomechanics (surgery) what if there was a different way? Because the Central Nerve System controls every tissue, organ, glad, and cell in our body, healing can still exist when optimal communication between brain and body is restored. This is why it is crucial to get checked.

The Role Of Chiropractic In Your Life

What is the role of Chiropractic in your life?  The primary focus of Chiropractic is to simply remove those things that interfere with the body’s natural ability to heal.  Chiropractic is a science, art and philosophy about the inner workings of the human body.  By understanding how the spine and central nervous system is connected, the scene is set for exploring how dysfunction within the spine can lead to impaired health and well-being.

The key focus of Chiropractic study is to detect and correct vertebral subluxations.  In turn this will restore the healthy function of the spine and nerve system.  Remove the vertebral subluxation in order for your body to better be able to adapt and correctly function.  When a vertebral subluxation exists it will create tension and stress on the spinal nerve due to the strain of the disc in between the vertebrae.  The effects of the displacement protrudes the disc and creates stress on the spinal nerve.  Edema will create pressure on the nerve resulting in one of two things happening, stimulation or inhibition.  As a direct result the cells, tissues, glands, and organs that the nerve supplies will either be stimulated or inhibited.

Everyone should have access to chiropractic care right from birth through to the day they pass away.  I believe a lot of suffering could be prevented if this was the case.  Changing our health care system is and will be at the top forefront of a healthier lifestyle for all. There are lots of people who could stand to benefit from learning how to take better care of themselves. We know the function of the spine impacts our brain’s ability to interpret other things that are going on in and around us, an internal reality.  Effective health care begins with an accurate inner reality.  Adjusting the spine to restore optimal spinal function, actually changes the way the brain functions.  Remove any source of irritation to the central nerve system by keeping your spine healthy and aligned.

How To Ditch The Junk And Create Health

Ditch the Junk and Create Health

Is It Healthcare or Sick-care?

It’s the end of January and the New Year started with a BANG.  Either you have set the stage to create health and are continuing on your journey, or maybe you just need a little push.  The “healthcare” industry thrives on the New Year and people looking for a fresh start.  Wikipedia put the definition of “Healthcare Industry” as such: The healthcare industry is an aggregation and integration of sectors within the economic system that provides goods and services to treat patients with curative, preventive, rehabilitative, and palliative care.  The healthcare industry is ranked 4th of all industries in the United States.  When measuring the US healthcare compared to others, study after study continuously ranked the US in the bottom half.  What exactly does that mean?  Despite high spending on health care, the U.S. population has poor health.

Create Health by Eliminating Junk

To create health, you need to eliminate the junk that you have been exposed to.  Gimmicks, trends, health fads and the newest and latest PILLS.  It’s literally junk.  Here’s a nice tid-bit of information for you.  The FDA stated that 70% of all supplement companies violate agency rules.  This means there is no filter for what they can create, produce and SAY to get you thinking that you will benefit from one of their potions. This is not even talking about medicine and the pills they produce, this is just the supplement industry itself.  Just think, if their efficacy has such low standards, what other rules are they manipulating?  They will say anything to make you think that they can “cure, heal, or fix” you.

Create Health with the Foundation First

A healthy inside creates a healthy outside.  The inside we are referring to is the central nerve system (CNS).  The CNS made every organ, tissue, and cell in your body.  If you want to be healthy make sure your spine, which protects the CNS, is completely free of interference. It’s no secret, trend, or new fad that creating a healthy you begins with the inside first.  Specific Chiropractic care does not sell you anything.  Chiropractic care only enables your body to do what it is supposed to do…be healthy.  #getchecked
