Competitor or Spectator?
Runners from around the country are preparing to converge on Brighton for the Marathon on Sunday 18th but most of us are preparing for the event as a spectator, however a select group of our patients are braving the day as a competitor. Bravo to them! Irregardless of whether you are a competitive runner or if you just do it for relaxation and fitness, or whether you don’t do it at all, your spine should be in line! Imagine what happens when your car tyres are out of alignment and you continue to drive that way – there’s always wear and tear to the point it will eventually burst your tyre if nothing is done. The same happens to your body when your spine is out of line! – unnecessary wear and tear occurs.
Many runners are regularly plagued by low back pain however, as our patients will tell you, their regular chiropractic care helps to keep their spine aligned to help them run more efficiently. The proactive approach to spinal care is designed to prevent spinal problems (like preventing dental caries) in the first place by having regular Chiropractic Care – just like doing an MOT for your car! This will ensure that small problems don’t escalate to “big problems”. More importantly your nervous system (the power house of the body) will be able to function better without any interference and help you to reach your potential – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
If you do suffer with back pain and disk problems, Chiropractic care takes a conservative approach with the goal to help restore better motion and alignment in the spine without surgery or medication. Anyone who has lived with lower back pain knows just how debilitating it can be – often impacting the most basic routine daily activities like sitting pain free to tying a shoelace.
Chiropractic care – often ignored as the solution to back pain, is gaining serious credibility as a more effective and less costly alternative, thanks to a host of studies published in the highly respected Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics (JMPT).
