I am a big believer in therapeutic modalities to help the body. Once a week I go to the chiropractor; I consider it maintenance. I love going to my chiropractor because he doesn’t just talk the talk, he walks the walk. Bryan W. Bell has been a licensed chiropractor since 1982. And he’s an avid weight lifter.
At his office Bryan rocks the Bowflex’s Select Tech’s 10/90s. Bryan keeps his tendons happy by using a modest amount of weight with a higher rep range. Recently Bryan was happy to report he hit a 300 pound bench PR for two reps.
A Chiropractor’s objective is to identify an obstruction or a disruption and relieve potential interference.
No Tylenol needed
Once identified, problems can be corrected through a chiropractic adjustment. An Adjustment maximizes the body’s ability to heal; no Tylenol in the world can accomplish this correction. An adjustment is commonly performed by hand on a specific table or bench and takes moments to perform, which frequently results in immediate relief.
Spines are designed for:
- Bodily support
- Bony protection
- Controlling every system every system in the body
Who can benefit and why?
From young to old, everyone can benefit from an adjustment; it’s even more important as a person ages. As a person ages, the body attempts to stabilize the spine by depositing calcium along the joints. Chiropractors can mobilize a spine that has lost motion through the aging process.
A chiropractic evaluation can identify any spinal issues a weight-lifter may encounter.
In the absence of any trauma it is common for a chiropractor to evaluate an individual’s spinal health once a month. Every individual’s body is different. Below is a short list of things to consider; they all play a role in when to check your spine.
- Your history
- Overall general spinal health
A good chiropractor can help you put a program together that works best for you. Share your goals and objectives with your chiropractor. If you’re a weight lifter this makes good sense to get checked more frequently when you’re in a heavy lifting cycle.
