Chiropractic treatment helps the brain communicate more effectively with the body by ensuring the nervous system is functioning correctly. When it comes to running, this means your performance will be improved and your body will be stronger.
This is why it’s always a good idea for runners to be proactive and come to see us before they have pain or injuries. Not only does a nervous system that functions properly help us perform better, it also significantly reduces the risk of injury.
Our job as chiropractors is to fine tune your body to make sure everything is working the way it should be. Runners who receive regular chiropractic treatment have less pain, perform better and move more freely.
As our own ultra-marathon runner, Dr Luke Brady says: “By keeping the mechanics of the pelvis and mechanics of the legs running smoothly, it reduces the risk of wear and tear and maximise performance.
Listen as our very own ultra-marathon runner, Dr Luke Brady, explains how training and chiropractic care combined to change the way he enjoys running.
“It goes hand in hand with high intensity interval training which I’ve used to strengthen my legs dramatically. By having a healthy nervous system and nerve supply to the muscles they’ll bounce back and recovery more quickly after strength training.”
We’re big advocates here of helping people be healthier and improve their wellbeing but, more importantly, in helping people do the things they love doing.
