Climbers Keep Going Up with Chiropractic

Climbing is a healthy addiction

To qualify that statement, it is as healthy as an addiction can get. Climbing is a sport that gets close to the meaning of being a human- an intense personal challenge that pushes you far outside of your comfort zone in search of the boundaries that make you feel alive. Insofar as it presents a mental challenge, it is also intensely taxing physically; climbing reaches muscles in the body that you never thought you would use. You can think about it from a micro- or macro-perspective: from the littlest muscles in your fingers and toes, to the large muscles in your extremities and the stabilizing muscles in the core, you need coordination between all of them. This is where chiropractic enters the picture: read on to find out how chiropractic can help you keep climbing long into life. 

 Chiropractic and the climber

At Associates in Chiropractic, we treat many a climber who is seeking to improve their capacity to push harder by using chiropractic’s natural modalities. From this perspective, we design climbing-specific treatment plans that seek to: 

  • Minimize local and systemic stresses
  • Balance the musculature in the upper body to ensure that forces are distributed evenly
  • Improve range of motion in the spinal joints
  • Improve coordination between brain and body by alleviating problematic nerve compression
  • Improve core strength to stabilize the transfer of forces across the upper body

Climbers are among the athletes that are the most in tune with their bodies. The majority of them know exactly what they are looking for. From this sense, chiropractic is a means to an end and climbers use it to keep them going in their primary direction: up!
