How Chiropractic Care Can Help Prevent Running Injuries
Runners can use chiropractic care to prevent injuries. The most common injuries involving runners include plantar fasciitis, hamstring strains, IT Band Syndrome, hip bursitis, and knee problems. If proper alignment to the joints are not restored, you will continue to have pain from running.
Proper alignment of the spine, pelvis and lower extremities is essential to avoid injuries caused by running.
Causes of Improper Alignment:
- Slanted surfaces
- Improper fitting shoes
- Sitting for long periods
- Weak muscles
It is better to visit a chiropractor before symptoms fully develop. Chiropractic treatments can help your physical body perform at its best. Not to mention, it is an alternative treatment that can help relieve many of the problems that runners experience without drugs.
To determine the intensity of knee injuries, a chiropractor can utilize non-invasive diagnostic tests. Moreover, chiropractors are experts at providing recommendation on exercises, stretches, and other natural pain reducing remedies.
Your feet are prone to injury from running. Running can increase the risk of developing plantar fasciitis. The good news is, chiropractic treatments can give you relief.
Flexibility of your body is very important when you run. To help improve your flexibility, you should seek chiropractic care. Your chiropractor can help get your spine into its proper alignment.
To put it differently, going to your chiropractor is like going to take your car to the shop and have the oil changed. You would not take your car for a long drive unless you are sure that your car is in good condition. The same principles go if you are expected to run. You want to make sure that your body is in good condition and ready for the pressure that running has in store.
