Did you know 3-5x of our bodyweight is transmitted through the leg, during each step’s impact, when running?
Raceday brings a certain amount of physical stress on our bodies, which is sometimes exacerbated by prerace nerves. By the time the race is over, you can see the toll it takes on the bodies of athletes hobbling around the finish line.
This season we have been touring some of the local race series. This past weekend we had a booth at the Splash, Mash and Dash Triathlon, complete with massage tables and a massage chair. Dr Zales and massage therapist, Sharyn Greenberg gave complimentary massage and assisted athletes with post race stretching on August 10th.
A great job to all the participants! This USAT sanctioned event had sprint and olympic triathlon distances, that drew experienced and novice triathletes alike.
While we were set up prospective patients asked their questions about pains and injuries, and how massage and chiropractic may be able to help them. In fact… Chiropractic is for everybody!
Chiropractic adjustments keep the 26 bones in the feet moving correctly and the muscle work keeps the muscles and fascia moving correctly.
High impact sports like running are known for the various injuries, which can sometimes take an athlete in their athletic prime to the sidelines to rest and rehab an injury. Active athletes benefit from getting regular chiropractic adjustments, and massages.
If you weren’t at the Splash, Mash and Dash, but have running, cycling or swimming ambitions of your own, please come talk to our massage therapists, trainers and doctors – we’ll be here to help you reach your goals!
