Growing Muscle

growing muscle

The muscle building process begins when our motor neurons send a signal to the muscle, telling it to contract.

The key to successful muscle building is to improve your brain to body communication: the better your motor neurons are at signaling to the muscle to contract, the stronger you grow. Subluxation gets in the way of this process by interfering with the communication of nerves that exit from the spinal column and communicate with muscles throughout the body.

Hypertrophy, the cellular process by which muscle fibers repair themselves and grow back thicker, occurs during rest after exercise. This is a process that depends on muscle protein synthesis being greater than muscle protein breakdown. Without the proper attention to nutrition and resting, the body can go into an catabolic, unproductive state. We provide athletes with hands on therapy that enhances blood circulation and speeds the rebuilding process.

At our office in Milpitas, we offer athletes the support and knowledge they need to push their bodies further. After your workout, call us at (408) 263-8025 to schedule an appointment. Together, we can make sure that the proper systems are in place to ensure the efficiency of your muscle growth.

Sports Hernia

Athletic pubalgia is the correct name for what many people call sports hernia. This is an injury that is sustained by the tissues in the lower abdomen and adductor muscles.

The location makes them particularly painful and many people seek aggressive forms of care such as surgery to relieve the pain and let them get on with their athletic pursuits. At Family Chiropractic & Natural Healing Center, we believe that with a little bit of chiropractic and some patience, you can rehabilitate a sports hernia injury and return to action stronger than before.

We offer a variety of treatment options that can reduce your pain while the body heals its injury, and then strengthen the region to prevent recurrence of the injury. Athletic pubalgia generally occurs when the muscles in the low abdomen and thigh are exposed to high-degree shearing forces, causing generally stable muscles to strain past their breaking point. This can be achieved with a direct trauma to the area or from repeated actions such as the shearing force involved in kicking a soccer ball.

We use chiropractic adjustments to restore joint mobility and range of motion. With gentle massaging, we introduce enhanced blood flow to the region which brings oxygen and other nutrients and heals the strain back to normal. Once you have established a level where no pain is experienced, we introduce core exercise until the region is stronger than before. Together we can heal your sports hernia. Call our office in Milpitas at (408) 263-8025.

Chiropractic for Sports

chiropractic for sports

The body is a reflexive organism: it develops enough muscle to perform the tasks it is regularly called upon to perform. Athletes are training every day to achieve feats of physical strength and activity that go beyond the normal biomechanics of human bodies; at Family Chiropractic & Natural Healing Center, we specialize in supporting these endeavors. The ironic reality of strengthening and specializing the body is that these exertions cause injury: straining tissues to make them stronger and introducing your body to unfamiliar movements that ask more of the muscles. Chiropractic care is being sought after more and more for treatment before and after physical performance.

The three main benefits of chiropractic care for athletes are prevention and rehabilitation of injury, and optimization of the athlete’s biomechanics. The forces inflicted on the body during high-impact sports such as rugby and football are akin to trauma sustained during an automobile collision. Regular chiropractic adjustments keep the spine in alignment through the blows, helping you perform better and heal quicker. Lower impact sports such as golf and tennis expose the body to torsion that goes beyond what a normal spine is used to. Adjustments help mitigate the strain that is sustained during these movements.

Flexibility is one of the most crucial components to many sports: if your body can’t bend without breaking, you are vulnerable to injury.

Chiropractic adjustment is integral in supporting range of movement and movement free of pain. If you are an athlete looking to incorporate chiropractic treatment into your athletic regimen in the San Francisco Bay Area, call our office at (408) 263-8025.
