Training, preparing, and competing are all part of what makes sports so much fun.
Wait – what about rest and recovery?
The majority of motions commonly seen in many popular sports place a tremendous amount of stress on your neck and back. While our bodies are incredibly strong and resilient, rest and recovery days are necessary for athletes at all levels.
You don’t have to take an all or nothing approach when it comes to what you do on a rest or recovery day compared to a training or game day. Your needs during training and your needs during recovery depend on a wide range of factors.
Chiropractors understand this and are uniquely trained to assist athletes in recovery both before and after competition.(more…)
Athletes and active people alike are always looking for that edge that keeps them performing at their best. And there may not be anyone who embodies that spirit for so many of us more than basketball legend Michael Jordan.
He won multiple world championships and gold medals and broke just about every record in the NBA! So what was a big part of his success?

CrossFit is a challenging sport! Participants primarily focus on strength and conditioning and add in a healthy dose of competition for good measure.
Their training programs typically incorporate a wide range of exercises – everything from kettlebell-specific exercises to high-intensity interval training (HIIT) involving explosive plyometric movements to Olympic weightlifting and elements of powerlifting.
CrossFit success comes down to consistency and dedication, and a common goal most Crossfitters share is to improve their WOD (workout of the day).
And we know that to do that, they’ll need a plan that allows them to not only achieve their best performance, but that also helps ensure their body can recover quickly. The last thing any Crossfitter wants is for injuries to pop up, slow them down, and potentially keep them from going to the gym altogether.
That’s where we come in.(more…)
