Why Does Your Kanata Chiropractor Work With Athletes, the "Weekend Warrior", and the Health-Conscious?

Spine

We specialize in structural correction of the spine

Whether you are a professional athlete, a “Weekend Warrior”, or just health-conscious, we truly believe that a Chiropractor should be part of your professional healthcare team.

I was reading an article recently from the Poliquin Group titled “Ten Things You Probably Don’t Know About Glute Training”.

Being a Chiropractor who focuses on structural correction of the spine, I was especially interested in #7 “Structural Imbalances Influence Glute Training”.

For the Poliquin Group’s full explanation, please visit the link above, but two things really caught my attention:

1. They mentioned “poor posture mobility restrictions”. In Chiropractic, this is one of the components of the “Subluxation Complex” – Kinesiopathology, which by definition is hypomobility, hypermobility, and/or compensation reactions.

2. They mentioned that someone might be more prone to injury if they have “…an excessive anterior pelvic tilt to begin with.” In Chiropractic, someone who is trained in Chiropractic Biophysics and focuses on structural correction of the spine will often measure the pelvic tilt angle, the pelvic incidence angle, and/or the posterior tangent pelvic incidence angle because we understand its significance.

It’s ok if you don’t understand these terms or these measurements, that’s why we are here; it’s our specialty, we will explain everything to you.

In short, what we want you to take away from this is that we are here to help should you want our help. If you are not getting the desired results at the gym, if you are experiencing pain or have injured yourself, it could be related to the two things stated above. We can do a proper exam in order to let you know if what you are experiencing is related to a subluxation that is present in your spine and/or if it’s part of your congenital anatomy as can be the case with pelvic tilt.

Our goal is to empower you with knowledge to not only help you achieve your next fitness goal, but also to prevent any further or future injury.
