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.
