Life & Sports Injury and Performance
Whether you’re a weekend warrior, an active parent or a professional athlete, it is important to keep the body in proper structural alignment to prevent injury and help you excel. Poor posture and structural alignment translates to physical activity. This can put extra strain on the spine and extremities as well as put extra strain on the muscles, increasing the chances of injury and dysfunction.
Often times during a minor injury, like tweaking an ankle or pulling a back muscle, we medicate with NSAIDs. This method usually is effective in eliminating the pain, however most often the structural misalignment persists lending to an increased probability of re-injury. Not to mention that every muscle in the body is controlled by nerve fibers that are constantly sending aberrant signals to the brain. Additionally, every muscle in the body has a relationship to an organ and corresponds with a particular nutrition.
