Improve Your Running with Boulder Chiropractic

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

An old and perhaps overused statement, it does ring true, especially for runners. Just like trying to run on a broken leg, running with a misaligned spine can produce injury, pain and even immobility further down the road, which is just one reason why your Boulder chiropractic is here to help you stay on your feet so you can always be on top of your game.

The act of running itself can be harmful for your joints without you even realizing it, even if you have proper form:

  • Same direction, same terrain. It’s easier to run in the same place every time. It feels familiar and you feel more confident. However, running the same course is one way that your joints can get out of line. The reason is that the impact is on the same place over and over again, which wears down your defenses and unless you get regular adjustments, your joints simply deteriorate.

 

  • Beach running. Although it is great for toning muscles that are otherwise hard to work, running in soft sand frequently can be hard on your joints. Try running closer to the water, where the sand is firmer.

 

  • Old shoes. This seems like a given, but your shoes need to be replaced just like the tires on your car or bike do. They wear down, offering less protection and cushion.

 

Chiropractic care helps undo the damage that running or working your day job can do. Sitting all day at a desk, standing in one place or bending to pick up children easily wears out your bones. Not only does it help prevent injury, but it can also improve accuracy, balance and muscle strength.
