As we mature our bodies are still changing. It can seem that we are invinsible as we grow stronger and more confident. However, this confidence can sometimes lead to injury. Without balanced care we can set ourselves up for unnecessary chronic issues. Our office sees many young elite athletes with dreams of going on to a career in professional sports. Consider that even the developing artist should maintain excellent health if they expect a long and active career in their desired field, whether it is in graphic arts, as a classical musician, or as a world class ballerino. A healthy lifestyle is key to following any dream. Dr. Tyler can advise on exercises, posturing, and other regulating factors that put students at their peak performance.
Anyone who engages in athletics can benefit from regular Chiropractic checkups to ensure that their spine is balanced and free from structural stress and subluxations. When the spinal column is brought into balance and alignment, the body's nervous system and body biomechanics (posture) are maximized. Athletic injuries are often caused by improper biomechanics or muscle imbalances within the spine. Because Doctors of Chiropractic are experts in the field of human biomechanics, they are very aware of proper posture and movement. By observing an athlete in action, a Chiropractor can often detect and prevent a sturctural problem that can lead to injury or poor performance.
"The fact that healing is a natural power is a concept that is missing from traditional medicine. This seems to be the greatest defect of modern medicine - a defect that has immense practical significance since it underlies our ability to find cost effective solutions in common health problems." -Andrew Weil, M.D.
