Fantastic news for Sitka athletes! More specifically, the New Zealand College of Chiropractic’s Centre for Chiropractic Research recently published a study in the journal Experimental Brain Research which demonstrates that following a full spine chiropractic adjustment session, there was a 45% increase in the ‘drive’ from the brain to the muscle (the degree to which the brain can activate that particular muscle) and improved nerve reflex. The results of the study also indicate that spinal adjustments can prevent fatigue. Therefore, the researchers recommend chiropractic care to be a part of medical treatment for patients who have lost muscle tone or are recovering from a muscle degrading dysfunction such as with stroke or orthopaedic operations. (1) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka fully agrees and goes even further to recognize that normal Sitka folks can also benefit from a multidisciplinary – medical and chiropractic – approach to healthcare.
