Can Chiropractic improve performance and help prevent injury in Runners?
Whether you are a professional, or a complete beginner in running, chiropractic can enhance performance and help prevent injures by properly aligning the spine and pelvis. It is essential to have a balanced body when running.
A spine that is out of balance changes the way we move, resulting in uneven loading pressure on joints and muscles causing a cascade of compensatory stress and tension making us more prone to injury. Lack of balance and core stability can make us more susceptible to rolling our ankles and hurting our knees.
Our TOP TIPS For Improving Performance
* Regular Chiropractic care helps keep your body in balance.
* Good running trainers that are supportive to your ankles.
* Avoid repetitive surfaces like the road or treadmills, instead vary your runs to include hills and uneven surfaces.
* Stretch your hamstrings & psoas muscles before and after exercise.
* Give yourself enough recovery time.
If you are experiencing pain, if your trainers are wearing unevenly or don't feel you have the 'get up and go' we can do a runners postural assessment for you to get you back performing at your best again.
Please call 01865 311 871 to have your posture assessed today with our personal program.

Sunscreen - Your Friend or Foe?
With the summer holidays fast approaching, many sun protection products contain toxic ingredients, chemicals that can actually cause irritation to your skin, and as a result are more harmful than helpful.A good sunscreen should protect our skin from UV radiation, without causing skin irritation, or allergies. Unfortunately, most of the well known sunscreens contain toxic chemicals that can cause allergic reactions, skin irritations and even disrupt proper hormone function.
