Biking and Back Pain
When biking causes back pain
At our office in Fremont, we treat many a biker with back pain; for a sport that conditions and strengthens the musculoskeletal and cardiovascular systems, it is quite a frequent contributor to spinal dysfunction. No matter your age, if your bike doesn’t fit properly, or if your posture is less than perfect, your biking habit can actually create the conditions that leave you stiff and sore. We want to help cyclists ensure that their chosen method of exercise is only moving them up in the ranks of wellness; in order to do this, we need to prevent the factors that contribute to back pain in the saddle.
How Posture Makes You a Happier Person
Posture contributes to health and happiness
Along with the universally agreed upon tenets of diet, exercise and sleep, we propose a fourth cornerstone of well-being: posture. As we see it, the spine is a foundation of physical health and thus, maintaining its form and function at all points in the day is of the utmost importance. That’s why posture is so important: good posture reinforces your health and protects your body for the future, while poor posture exponentially increases the amount of compression that your spine must endure at a given time. What’s more, good posture reflects your attitude toward life while also informing it: by appearing physically upright and strong, you project a feeling of confidence that also redirects into your brain, helping you actually feel stronger and more confident.
Along with Adjustment: Chiropractic Modalities for Reducing Pain
Our mission is your wellness
Spinal adjustment is at the core of chiropractic theory and it forms the bulk of the treatments we provide at our office in Fremont. However, spinal adjustment is just one part of our commitment to your wellness; we are trained in a multitude of natural modalities that seek to maximize your well-being by improving the way you move and function. One of these modalities is soft tissue therapy, a common tool used throughout chiropractic and physiotherapy to improve musculoskeletal health, overcome injury and heal effectively.
