Shin splints, ankle sprains, knee and/or hip pain may not be due to overuse but rather be due to a dysfunctional movement pattern due to a misalignment in the Spinal Column.
Chiropractic treats the neuro-musculoskeletal system of the body. Simply put this means that chiropractic evaluates the joints, muscles and the nervous system of the body. If one or more of these systems does not function in balanced way, then the other systems may start to dysfunction as compensation.
Chiropractic simply helps with keeping the body moving efficiently, to ease the mechanical loads and stress on the body, whether it is a marathon you are training for or simply everyday repeated movements. A trained and experienced chiropractor can also help determine the likelihood of a future injury by identifying muscle imbalances or joint restrictions. These lead to more physical wear and tear on the body, will produce compensations which may be harmful in the long term and eventually an injury.
