All runners know that their favorite sport can be hard on their bodies. The repetitive pounding with each step can lead to many injuries—some that our serious enough to cause them to hang up their running shoes for a while. Even if you aren’t experiencing any aches and pains at the moment, chiropractic care can make sure that you will have many injury-free miles ahead of you.
Alignment problems may not manifest themselves until after years of running. By then you could end up with an injury that keeps you out of the race (pun intended) for weeks or even months.
The benefits of regular chiropractic care for runners include:
• Increased muscle strength
• Improved balance
• Improved coordination
• Prevention of repetitive injuries
• Quicker recovery
Since chiropractic care focuses on your joints and running is dependent on the range of motion of several different joints, regular adjustments are a must for any training plan.
“Chiropractic care is an important part of keeping me in the best condition so I can perform at an optimum level.”—Perdita Felicien, World Champion and Olympian
“You obviously can’t compete at your fullest if your body isn’t in alignment. And your body can’t heal if your back is not in alignment. Every track and field athlete that I have ever met has seen chiropractor at one time or another.”—Dan O’Brien, Olympic Decathlon Gold Medalist
