Do you notice fatigue and muscle function loss? Augusta chiropractic care at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic may boost strength, muscle function, and prevent fatigue.
Do you exercise more and more and seem to plateau in how your muscles respond when you need them? Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic realizes these issues may be more obviously important to some Augusta 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? Augusta daily life would only be enhanced if we have more strength to do all the activities we need to do!
Now, for the Augusta athletes, new research into the effects of chiropractic care suggests that chiropractic like that at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic may have an important role to play in maximizing sporting performance and assisting recovery from a range of conditions where muscle function has been compromised. Great news for Augusta 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.
