Did you know that a Chiropractic adjustment doesn’t only help reduce your pain levels? It also enables you to get stronger! It’s true. Researchers measured the electrical activity in the arms and legs before, during and after a Chiropractic adjustment. What did they find? An increase in cortical drive post Chiropractic adjustment. That’s science-speak for more strength.
Why it Matters:
Stronger is better. Better stamina, better balance, better coordination, better performance in every area of your life. What will you do with more strength?
- Your brain powers your movements and your strength through your nervous system.
- Adjustments have been shown to increase your cortical drive, which helps make your stronger.
- While one adjustment may not make you a champion powerlifter, this exciting new research is important for all of us who want to live an active lifestyle.
Pay attention. That’s right, consider being more mindful of where having more strength can be more positive in your life.
