Do you notice fatigue and muscle function loss? Richmond
chiropractic care at Johnson Chiropractic may boost strength, muscle function, and
Do you exercise more and more and seem to plateau in how
your muscles react when you need them? Johnson Chiropractic realizes these issues
may be more noticeably important to some Richmond folks
than others, like runners and sport athletes, but muscle strength and function
certainly affect the daily motions of life for all of us. Who wouldn’t want to
have more muscle strength and function? Richmond daily life would only
be enhanced if we have more strength to do all the activities we need to do!
Now, for the Richmond athletes, new research into
the effects of chiropractic care suggests that chiropractic like that at
Johnson Chiropractic may have an important role to play in maximizing sporting
performance and aiding recovery from a range of
conditions where muscle function has been compromised. Fantastic news for Richmond
athletes! More specifically, the New Zealand College of Chiropractic’s Centre
for Chiropractic Research recently published a study in the journal Experimental
Brain Research which demonstrates that following a full spine chiropractic
adjustment session, there was a 45% increase in the ‘drive’ from the brain to
the muscle (the degree to which the brain can activate that particular muscle)
and improved nerve reflex. The results of the study also indicate that spinal
adjustments can prevent fatigue. Therefore, the researchers recommend
chiropractic care to be a part of medical treatment for patients who have lost
muscle tone or are recovering from a muscle degrading dysfunction such as with
stroke or orthopaedic operations. (1) Johnson Chiropractic fully agrees and goes
even further to recognize that normal Richmond folks can also benefit
from a multidisciplinary – medical and chiropractic – approach to healthcare.
