Chiropractic Care Can Increase Your Muscle Strength

Are you always in the gym working to strengthen and tone your body? Or are you rehabbing after an injury? Or do you just want to strengthen your muscles to gain greater agility and balance? No matter your reasons for wanting to gain muscle strength, chiropractic care can help you do just that.

You read that right. Chiropractic care can help you increase your muscle strength. In this blog, John Hunt, DC, at Chiropractic Health Care Center Of Glendora shares how spinal health is connected to muscle strength.

An overall look at spinal health and muscle strength

Building muscle strength doesn’t happen in a vacuum. Building muscle strength takes a lot of different parts and functions working together. In short, if these parts work in an optimal manner, you can increase your muscle strength in an optimal manner as well.

Your spine is an integral part in everything you do, including efforts to build muscle strength. Involved in your spine are 33 vertebrae, 120 muscles, 100 joints, and about 220 ligaments. And on top of that, you have 31 pairs of nerves that snake in and out the openings of your vertebrae to deliver messages between your brain and muscles to ensure meaningful movement.

As you can see, there’s a lot going on in your spine. If your spine is misaligned, this can affect your nerves’ ability to send messages and your ability to move optimally. This, in turn, can affect your ability to build muscle.

A deeper look at your brain, spinal cord, and muscles

Muscle strength isn’t a simple calculation of how much weight you can lift or for how long. Gaining the optimal amount of muscle strength has a lot to do with how well your brain, spinal cord, and muscles communicate with each other. In order for your body to operate optimally, it needs the following:

And when it comes to communication, optimal nerve flow is crucial. If the spine is misaligned, this could impede nerve flow and reduce your ability to gain muscle strength.

However, if your spine is misaligned and this is addressed through chiropractic care, this can enhance your ability to build muscle strength. Not only will having your spine aligned allow you to boost workout intensity and build muscle strength, but your body will be able to do so more efficiently and with more energy and with less fatigue.

Where chiropractic care comes in

At Chiropractic Health Care Center Of Glendora, we are committed to helping our patients restore and maintain proper spinal alignment. We know that healthy nerve energy and good communication between your spinal cord, brain, and muscles is what truly sustains good overall health.

Our practitioners use an advanced corrective chiropractic care technique called the Ideal Spine protocol or Chiropractic BioPhysics® (CBP) for spinal misalignments. Not only is this technique noninvasive, but it also provides a uniform approach to restoring spinal alignment.

Furthermore, the system is completely trackable. Both you and your practitioner can monitor your progress, so you’ll be able to see where you need to go, where you are during the process, and when you’ve arrived. And that means a healthier spine and a greater ability to build muscle strength.
