Healthy Spine = Enhanced Athletic Performance

If you play a sport or exercise a lot, it’s important that you understand how important it is to have a healthy spine. Here’s how having a healthy spine can improve your athletic performance:

  • Core stability: Having a strong and stable core along with a healthy spine allows you to generate power and transfer energy throughout your body easier during dynamic movements in sports. 
  • Injury prevention: The most common way to sustain a spinal cord injury is by playing physical contact sports. Having a healthy spine can help to reduce the risks of sustaining a spinal cord injury. 
  • Enhanced range of motion: A properly aligned spine allows you to have better flexibility and range of motion in the joints, allowing you to move more freely while playing sports.
