3 Reasons Tight Muscles Deplete Your Energy
#1 Tight Tight Tight
The first and most obvious reason that tight muscles deplete your energy is because you just got done working out. This is stating the obvious, yet sometimes is often misunderstood. Any form of physical fitness is great for the body. When performing exercise your muscles require energy; it’s give and take. Just like fueling your car for a long road-trip. This cause and effect of exercising is to be expected. With this being said, let’s explore the unknown reasons of tight muscles.
# 2 Spinal Misalignment = Tight Muscles
Spinal misalignments, also called subluxations, exist unknowingly. This is the same notion as a cavity in your mouth going unnoticed for years. Subluxations place undue stress on the spinal nerves. Stress…Who likes to have to stress in their lives? Just about nobody. So, imagine a nerve that is supposed to supply your cells with abundance of life happens to be stressed. This will result in your body working unnecessarily harder and faster in the organs, glands, tissues, and muscles that it supplies. Working harder uses fuel faster than it should. Subluxations will deplete energy stores without notice.
# 3 Fighting Gravity Requires Energy
Gravity exists whether you believe it or not. Newton’s law of universal gravitation acts on our bodies every single day. The spine is designed primarily to protect the central nervous system (Brain & Spinal Cord) and secondly to keep us upright. The spine is supposed to be completely straight when visualizing it from face to face with somebody. When a subluxation is present in the spine it places constant stress on the nerves. A healthy spine, free of subluxations, alleviates the stress on the nervous system, which in turn limits your total energy expenditure. By maintaining your spinal hygiene you are maintaining your overall health and energy at the same time.
