WHY RESISTANCE TRAINING?
Through the years we have seen lots of athletic & non-athletic people come through our doors. You know the one thing they have in common? They are all performing some level of resistance training!
In your journey to continue to health and improve strength, chiropractic care like you are receiving at Stone Chiropractic, will help play a role in your transforming your body!
Your spine and your nervous system can make or break your strength training routine. A spine that is out of alignment leads to muscular imbalances and pain, preventing you from getting the most out of your hard work. And it definitely doesn’t take much imagination to see how pinched nerves caused by joint subluxations could affect the ability to train effectively.
In a 2009 study, researchers studied the effects of resistance training on subjects who suffered from fibromyalgia. They also had a subset of subjects perform resistance training and receive chiropractic treatment. The results were impressive: While both groups improved their strength, only the group that had strength training AND CHIROPRACTIC CARE improved their strength, flexibility, balance, coordination and endurance. As well, they found it easier to adhere to their strength training.
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
The beautiful thing about chiropractic care is that it provides a safe, drug-free, and natural way to not only relieve pain, but to treat the cause of pain at the source. And when you are working on your gains, the last thing you want is to be sidelined by back pain or joint problems. Plus, with a body that is in optimal alignment and function, you’ll get even more out of your deadlifts and squats, allowing you to train more efficiently and comfortably. Start improving and making that progress you want to see!!
