Supplement Your Running Routine With Chiropractic Care

Running is one of the best workouts you can do. It’s an amazing form of cardio that keeps your heart healthy, your weight down and your lungs happy. Regular runners are some of the most fit people I know, not only (literally) running circles around me during workouts, but always having great endurance no matter what exercise is underway.

However, a lot of runners I workout with also seem to have knee and joint problems, which can really hinder their training in the long run. Since there is such a high risk of injury with running, it is especially important for those who participate in the sport to take care of their bodies. 

If you are a runner who is interested in alternative ways to maintain your joint and muscle health, to heal current injuries and to prevent future problems, then chiropractic care may be an option that could be beneficial to you. There are chiropractors that specifically work on athletes and are well versed in sport’s injuries, which makes them well-qualified to treat runners. Sports chiropractic use specialty techniques in order to prevent sport’s injuries and increase athletic performance. 

Chiropractic care is way more than just cracking bones back into place. It is a specialized way to realign the spine and pelvis back to their optimal position in the body, which affects the function of all the bodily systems, especially the nervous and immune systems. For runners, it is important to keep specific parts of the body healthy. The back, neck, pelvis, knees, hips, tendons and joints working at their optimal health levels. When there are misalignments in the body, then it can affect all these aspects.

Subluxations in the spine are the main culprit behind a lot of these issues. Also known as pockets of built up pressure, these subluxations can put tension on one part of the body, causing the other parts of the body to make up that affected area. When the healthy parts of the body are working overtime, it makes the body more susceptible to injury. By removing the spinal subluxations, chiropractors may be able to limit the injury risk for runners.

By incorporating chiropractic treatments into your training, then you may be able to successfully supplement your workout program. Chiropractic is a generally low-risk treatment that allow the body to be treated naturally, without the use of potentially harmful pain medications. Although chiropractic is a great resource for athletes, it is safe enough for any age group to incorporate into their lives.
