Muscle Growth and Chiropractic

Muscle builders of all shapes, tones and sizes can benefit from the support and expertise we provide at Scorca Chiropractic Center.

Chiropractic’s role in the muscle-building world is best understood as an augment to the communicative capacity of the motor neurons and muscles. Muscle growth begins when motor neurons send a signal that tells a specific muscle to contract. The conduit for this signal is the spinal cord; if there is a misalignment of the spine, the signal could be lost in translation.

At our office in Fremont, we are also invested in the prevention and rehabilitation of injury sustained during athletic endeavor. The process of muscle building is cyclical: a period of stress and break down followed by rest and rebuild. During the resting period, muscle protein synthesis must be greater than protein breakdown.

We want to make sure that you are paying close attention to nutrition, hydration and proper resting techniques that boost the overall efficiency of your routine. Muscular imbalances are another hindrance to the muscle builder: they are a key contributor to injury that can be avoided if they are identified and corrected.

Muscle building is a fun activity that enhances many people’s quality of life. For people in pursuit of muscle gain, chiropractic is an indispensible adjunct to their routine. Call our office in Fremont at (510) 656-9077 to schedule an appointment today.
