Runners are a dedicated bunch – but the constant pounding from regular running can lead to wear and tear on the body, especially if the spine is misaligned. Fortunately, Chiropractic care can help get that spine in line, which can help runners keep pursuing their passion.

"Malalignment of the spine can cause unnecessary tension on one particular body part versus an equal distribution of pressure," says Scott Duke, D.C., in an interview with Active.com. "I can't take care of anyone's chronic IT band problem without making sure their pelvis is in as perfect alignment as it can be. Otherwise, it'll continue to wear, tear, and put strain on that one particular body part."

Alignment issues can also be exacerbated by the way we hold our bodies at rest (such as sitting with legs crossed), and Chiropractors can help find what may be causing malalignment and perhaps affecting your run.

In our practice at Murry Chiropractic and Associates, our own Dr. Dylan is not only a chiropractor but an athlete and certified personal trainer, making him a great choice to consult if you're a weekend warrior or serious athlete. Make an appointment today!
