Turbocharge Your Workouts Naturally

You heard me right. While many people chug down supplements like creatine, caffeine, taurine, and beta-alanine mixed pre-workout drinks, they often forget that there’s a natural way to get your muscles fibers firing to get the most out of your workout.  That method is the chiropractic adjustment.  Dr Scott, myself, and other chiropractors have been saying it for years that the adjustments free up the nerve interference and allows your body to communicate better to all the organs of your body including the 640 skeletal muscles.

Earlier this year, New Zealand Chiropractic College published a study in the journal Experiment Brain Research.  This study measured participant’s ability to contract one leg muscle following full spine adjustments.  The research showed nearly a 60% increase in muscle electrical activity, a 16% increase in absolute force, and a 45% increase in drive (ability of the brain to activate a particular muscle).  The research also suggests that spinal adjustments can help prevent muscle fatigue as well.


At Body in Balance we regularly treat all types of athletes from beginners to experts.  One group we are privileged to work with are Crossfitters.  These folks know what it’s like to get the very most from their workouts, and all of them appreciate the boost chiropractic adjustments. 

It is fun for me to continue to write articles that show that we treat more than just back and neck pain. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Yours in health,
Dr. Bryan
