Many athletes use chiropractic care to their benefit. By making sure the spine is in proper alignment, athletes have less sports injuries and better running health. Chiropractic care is a great preventative tool in making sure your body doesn’t cause more harm than good. The spine and nervous system are vital with sports performance and making sure everything is working properly, biomechanically and neurologically.
Many runner’s seek out the care of chiropractors. If the pelvis is misaligned it disrupts the entire chain below it and affects the hips, knees, and ankles. Proper pelvis placement will relieve aches and pains, while at the same time opening up the nerves that travel to the lower half of the body as well. The pelvis can tilt forward or backward, and may end up causing tight muscles.
