Athletes: Is Your Nervous System Functioning Properly?

Your body's ability to respond, balance and recover are all controlled by the Central Nervous System. A spinal assessment can help ensure it's proper functioning.

Your body's ability to respond, balance and recover are all controlled by the Central Nervous System. A spinal assessment can help ensure it's proper functioning.

At Urban Chiropractic, we want you to be well and stay well, to facilitate your training and optimize your conditioning.

Part of keeping well means maintaining a healthy nervous system, which controls sensation, movement, circulation, breathing and immunity, to name a few.

The Central Nervous System controls basically every structure and organ in the human body. A properly functioning nervous system means better agility, balance, recovery and healing for athletes.

Information is delivered to the brain, the hub of the body's nervous system, through the spine. To ensure that this flow of signals occurs properly, it's important to maintain good spinal health. Improper spinal function or undue stress on the spine can interfere with nerve function and impact your body's natural ability to heal and adapt. 

If an athlete is experiencing pain or balance problems, it could be the result of an improperly functioning nervous system. We can assess and treat areas of concern by increasing or decreasing stimulation as needed.

If you have concerns about spinal and nerve function or would like to consider a wellness assessment, contact us for a consultation.
