To grow muscle is a simple enough concept, but at a neurological level it can be a temperamental undertaking
Muscle growth is a process that begins when motor neurons send a signal to a muscle, causing it to contract. Successful and speedy muscle building therefore relies on uncongested nerve pathways: the easier it is for your brain to spark a muscle contraction, the quicker muscle builds. Subluxation, or misalignment of the spine is therefore extremely counterproductive to the serious muscle builder. At Associates in Chiropractic, we use spinal adjustments to gently move the misaligned vertebrae back into place, removing the interference from the nerve pathway.
Strength training is also prone to the pitfall of overtraining: pushing your body with too much weight or for too many reps can cause muscle spasm and tissue damage, as well as joint sprain. If you have pushed yourself over the line of healthy training, we offer the treatment that will target your injury and increase circulation and blood flow in the area. Ensuring that your nerve pathways are congestion free and circulation is flowing maximally ensure that you are feeling the most energy possible in the gym.
We can help you get the most out of every muscle building motion by ensuring the health of your nervous system. Call our office in Hackensack at (201) 342-6111 to schedule an appointment today.
