Chiropractic for Athletes in Houston

Athletes can push further with the help of chiropractic 

Athletes are a breed of people constantly seek improvement; improvement in performance begins with specialization of the body. In this endless pursuit of perfection, the athlete's body develops the strength and flexibility necessary to excel and we believe that you can always use a helping hand.  Studies show that athletes who receive regular chiropractic treatment suffer fewer injuries, recover quicker and enjoy a comparative advantage over athletes who don't use chiropractic. How does this work? 

Back pain in Houston

The elements of a stable lower back

A great way to limit the impact of back pain on your life is by focusing on adding stability into your lower back. Your core and associated stabilizing muscles should be much more than a set of muscles developed for appearance's sake; let's look at the muscles which contribute to spinal stability and what they do for you:

arthritis in houston

Arthritis is widespread throughout America

While the term arthritis incorporates multiple conditions, the pain at one end of the spectrum can be so severe that simple tasks are rendered impossible. The two major subsets of arthritis are:

  • Osteoarthritis: a degenerative disorder, mostly found in elderly populations, which breaks down cartilage from the joints and causes them to rub against each other, creating pain and limiting movement. Spinal osteoarthritis involves the spine's facet joints.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis: an autoimmune disorder that involves inflammation of the joint tissues, causes pain, lowers red blood cells and reduces range of motion.  While RA is not considered hereditary, a family history of RA is linked to increasing your risk for the disease. 
  • In both cases, the body will attempt to replace the lost cartilage by creating extra bone known as osteophytes, or bone spurs, in the joint space.

In America, as many as 8 in 10 adults over the age of 55 will suffer from arthritis

Everyone is affected differently and in different parts of the body. But what all arthritis sufferers share is an impingement on their lifestyle. At Holmes Chiropractic, we are ready to help you manage your condition and mitigate many of its worst symptoms!
