Dr. Arndt has a great deal of experience working with athletes of all calibers. Athletic endeavors from weight lifting to golf injuries are very common causes of neck and low back injuries.
The human body is capable of incredibly intricate movements. These movements are possible only because of the wiring and communication of our nervous system. When this wiring is disrupted by vertebral misalignments, muscles do not fire as efficiently, blood circulation is compromised, joint range of motion is reduced and our performance is significantly compromised.
An athlete himself, Dr. Arndt realizes the passion and urgency athletes have to compete and the frustration they feel when sidelined by an injury. By correcting spinal misalignments the frame is balanced and strengthened, nerve supply is restored to joints and muscles, range of motion and performance are improved.
If you have sustained an injury and need rehab or you just want to work toward optimum health and athletic performance chiropractic care can make all the difference. Professional athletes and weekend warriors around the world have used chiropractic for decades with incredible results.
Running / Jogging and Chiropractic Care
Running or jogging is one of the best forms of exercise for maintaining our cardiovascular systems and muscle tone. Unfortunately, even with the best running form and shoes, this exercise still produces a tremendous amount of repetitive stress on our joints.
Misalignments of the low back and pelvis are very common in both amateur and seasoned runners. These misalignments are mechanical weaknesses that make runners very vulnerable to debilitating injuries and joint degeneration (arthritis). Research has shown that misalignments in the low back and pelvis cause poor biomechanics which in turn causes an inefficient stride and a slower running pace.Chiropractic care effectively corrects misalignments and decreases mechanical stress and abnormal pressure to the joints of the low back and pelvis.
