How Chiropractic Care Addresses Running Injuries

If you run regularly, you’re probably in fairly good shape. You watch what you eat, and grind to live a healthy lifestyle. You also, most likely, experience pain and discomfort. Contrary to popular belief, no matter how wholesome a life you live, your body is not fully aligned. Chiropractic care is a pillar of health, necessary for achieving balance and strength. Dr. Snyder and his team at Lifetime Health and Wellness have helped the athletes of Westminster and Broomfield avoid running injuries and surpass goals for more than twenty-five years. 

Running Throws Your Body out of its Natural State

Have you ever noticed that athletic teams always travel with a sports chiropractor? High-impact sports like running throw the body out of alignment. We ignore these slight shifts, only seeking help when we’re injured or suffering from chronic pain. Unfortunately, by this point our spine and/or hips are misaligned, forcing our gait to change to compensate. Chiropractic care, addresses the core of your injury, rehabilitating your entire body for optimized performance.

Primary running habits that cause improper alignment include:

  • Running the exact same course every time, in the same direction. Change your running course and/or surface to ensure different courses. 

  • Not replacing shoes often enough.  

  • Running on surfaces that are slanted. When running on slanted surfaces, such as the beach, run as close as you can to a flat surface. 

Overall Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Athletes

Visiting a chiropractor regularly doesn’t just treat injuries, it helps prevent them and so much more. Some of the things your chiropractor’s care can do for you are:

  • Allow muscles to work as intended, enhancing strength performance

  • Relieve pain without the aid of drugs

  • Boost the immune system

  • Enable relaxation and improve sleep

  • Relieve headaches

  • Improve digestion

  • Ensure proper breathing during exercise
