Colorado is known to be a draw for people because of the abundant opportunities for an active lifestyle that the state provides. Thanks to the four seasons and a variety of terrain, there is a place for you to get active your way, no matter what that might be. If you’re like Dr. Jacob and being active is a way of life for you, you know how important it is to have your body function in its most optimal way. That’s where chiropractic comes in.
Any kind of physical activity, from hiking to rock climbing, from mounting biking to CrossFit can work the body hard, and even with proper technique, you may suffer from back, neck or other pain from a misalignment in the spine that can hold you back with your daily or weekend warrior activities.
Maybe you hike long distances with a backpack, and it aggravates old injuries or the weight stresses your back and shoulders. Maybe you are a rock climber whose belaying catches up with you when hours of looking up gives you neck aches. Or if you are a runner, you may have discomfort stemming from the repetitive nature of the activity. In some cases, the discomfort may not even seem obviously related to a misalignment to you, but actually may be. Whatever the issue, chiropractic adjustments can help you get to the level of performance where you want to be.
At Well Beings Chiropractic Family Health, our patients have the benefit of a chiropractor who not only knows how important an active lifestyle is, but who has the training to have a deep understanding of the body and how it functions. In addition to his education as a chiropractor, Dr. Jacob holds a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology from the University of Illinois.
Even if you don’t have aches and pains that stop you from doing what you love, regular chiropractic adjustments can help everyone from professional athletes to weekend warriors and student athletes perform at their highest levels, keeping the nervous system clear of any interference, thanks to proper spinal alignment. Many professional football and soccer teams even have a chiropractor on staff, as do Olympians and golfers.
Chiropractic allows athletes at every level get the most out of their performance, going longer, stronger and harder with more ease. Whether you’re competing against someone else, yourself, or just like to be active, chiropractic can help you do your best.
