Helping Athletes Improve Balance
Balance is innate; balance is essential
For athletes, balance is one of the factors that determines fine margins. Unfortunately, too many of us neglect balance in pursuit of strength and endurance. Balance is something you need to constantly maintain and improve- it is your ticket to controlling equilibrium and stability. At Scorca Chiropractic Center, we focus on biomechanical balance, as well as the balance of your nervous system. Here is how we help athletes improve balance:
First, we define it
For athletes, biomechanical balance is split into two essential types:
- Static: balance when stationary. Maintaining a healthy upright posture and an awareness of your center of gravity
- Dynamic: balance while moving. To transfer forces without causing injury, to keep yourself centered over your center of gravity- these things make you a more effective athlete.
What is essential to both types is finding and knowing where your center of gravity is at all times. And while dynamic balance is harder to define, we know that both are essential for injury prevention and athletic performance. The better your dynamic balance, the better your body is able to control for the transfer of forces that occurs during movement.
