Lodes Chiropractic Center Educates Patients on Chiropractic Care for Runners

/EIN News/ -- WILMINGTON, Del., July 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chiropractic treatment offers athletes and runners potential career longevity, improves biomechanical function, and more. Meb Keflezighi, Rio Olympic runner and prior Olympic medalist, has used chiropractic care to stay competitive and in top shape against younger athletes. An estimated 90 percent of professional athletes have come to rely upon chiropractic care. Chiropractic care is used to recover from injury and strain, reduce pain without drugs or surgery, and to prevent injuries and enhance performance. The chiropractic treatments at Lodes Chiropractic Center are used to heal injuries and address spinal imbalances in professional and amateur athletes, including runners.

Meb Keflezighi, former 2004 Olympic silver medalist in the marathon and winner of the 2014 Boston Marathon, has used chiropractic care since he was in school and incorporates it into his fitness regime. Meb stated:

“I’ve been going (for chiropractic adjustments) since 1993 when I was in high school. Now I try and get adjusted at least once every two weeks. What I like about chiro is that they look at the whole body, not just the injury.”

Elite runners and professional athletes have chosen chiropractic treatments to produce optimal alignment, decrease pain without medication, and speed recovery times. Professional athletes make the condition of the body a priority, whether they are preparing for an upcoming race or maintaining their fitness level. Chiropractic care can be used to prepare for and recover from local races including the Dewey Beach Patrol 5K/10K, the Corporate Fun Run in Wilmington, 13th Annual Run from the Sun/Avalon Yacht Club 5K, and the Marine Corps Marathon. Professional and amateur runners need to be aware of their bodies and address biomechanical dysfunction before injuries arise.

“Chiropractic care has been proven to benefit many athletes, including runners and those in the NFL,” said Dr. Michael R. Lodes. “As an experienced chiropractor, subtle adjustments and targeted techniques are used to rebalance the spine, decrease pressure on areas of injury, and support the healing process. Chiropractic can decrease the time an athlete may be sidelined from injuries. Regular chiropractic treatments are often recommended for runners and other athletes to keep them in top shape and prevent injury.”
