It's no secret that kickboxing is great cardio, which is why so many top-level athletes pursue it as a form of exercise. Basketball players, track athletes, and MMA fighters all engage in kickboxing, which has some serious consequences for the body.

Think about it, just throwing a kick requires use of the spine and puts some serious wear and tear on your joints.

That's why chiropractic treatment is an excellent form of active recovery for kickboxers since it helps correct any misalignments that can and will occur in the spine while throwing those picture-perfect, rib-splitting body kicks. 

Chiropractic treatment will also increase your range of motion, which will help you obtain increased flexibility, which will help you as you unlock new moves and include them in your kickboxing repertoire. 

One simple chiropractic adjustment will also help you get more restful sleep at night, which is when your body repairs itself from your rigorous training regiment.

When it comes to taking care of yourself, it's an incredibly important thing, especially when it comes to saving yourself time, pain, and suffering down the road. We eat well and try to exercise, hydrate, and get restful sleep in order to set ourselves up for success for the long haul.

One way you can save yourself a lot of money down the road is through Chiropractic Treatment.

1.) Chiropractic Adjustments

Visiting your local chiropractic care specialist will help improve your posture, provide drug-free pain relief, not to mention help you get a better night of sleep. All of these things will help optimize your health on a daily basis. Chiropractic adjustments might even help save you money down the road that you might spend on treatment for health conditions, or missed days at work.

2.) Eating Clean, Whole Foods

Eating clean, whole foods will ensure your body has the fuel it needs to carry you throughout any day's activities. Once you start to eat good clean fuel, your body will also start to crave it! Thinking nutritionally will help ensure we're healthy year-round.

3.) Exercise / Decompression

Having a consistent exercise protocol as well as an active recovery plan will keep your body in shape and help you enjoy mobility for the long haul, which will help save you money on medical expenses and injuries down the road.

If you have an active health and wellness plan, then it's likely that you also have a recovery/rest plan, whether you're aware of it or not. In many cases, an active recovery plan will help set you up for successful rest and rehabilitation while a passive recovery plan might leave you lacking in more than a few departments.

First, it's important to hydrate and to ensure you're eating clean, whole foods, which will help fuel and replenish your body at the right times. Getting 7-9 hours of restful sleep will also help your body repair itself and your mind detoxify itself from the day's events.

Stretching your body and releasing tension in your muscles and joints is also hugely important. Yoga is your friend during an active recovery day.

Getting a little bit of activity on an active recovery day never hurt anyone, either. You know what they say, "You can't overtrain, but you can under-recover." That's why it's all the more important to go for a walk or take a hike on an active recovery day, which will give your body the space it needs to recover while also pushing yourself a little bit in order to be productive.

If you have any questions about how an active recovery plan goes hand in hand with chiropractic treatment, contact Holmes Chiropractic today to learn more.

At Holmes Chiropractic we provide treatments that not only help those who are more advanced in age as well as our injured patients, our treatments are also extremely beneficial for high-performance athletes, especially powerlifters and bodybuilders.

Many of our patients classify themselves as those who get after it more than the average individual, which is why we stress having an effective active recovery routine, which includes stretching, proper diet, sleep, and even chiropractic treatment.

One simple chiropractic adjustment can improve your mood and help you get a better night of sleep, which will make you more effective in the weight room, to be certain.

A series of adjustments will help correct your posture and deal with any underlying issues, which can be causing you muscle tension, not to mention damaging your range of motion and flexibility, which can end up being seriously compromised as you acquire size, mass, and hit the weights harder each session. 

Not to mention, after a chiropractic adjustment, your body will start to feel amazing -- and feeling good is good enough, isn't it? Especially when you're engaged in pushing your body to physical exertion multiple times per week.

We'll see you after you hit the weight room over here at Holmes Chiropractic, where we have a long track record of helping patients just like you!

As we all get a little bit better of an idea how this year is going to go, it's probably a good idea to revise your 2020 health and wellness goals to make sure that your aims are feasible during this COVID-19 pandemic. Many large cities that reopened are rolling back the openings of businesses and bringing some back to Phase 1 status.

This means that you'll likely not be able to hit the gym the way you like any time soon. There won't be any marathons being held this summer, but it's still a good idea to hold yourself accountable to achieving something health and wellness-related this year.

Below, Holmes Chiropractic goes over a few ways to improvise your goals during lockdown.

First, if you're going to change anything, make the changes that will have the most impact. Diet and nutrition are first and foremost in the easy tweaks that make a huge difference category. When you're eating clean, whole foods, you'll find that your body will begin to crave that sort of thing. What might be an adjustment at first will be second nature after a few weeks. Clean, whole foods (and plenty of veggies) will help fuel your productivity as well.

Next, make sure you're pushing yourself hard physically. Go on a long hike at the end of the week to close out your exercise schedule. Take an online yoga class and practice some sort of mindfulness exercise.

Get 7-9 hours of sleep... religiously. Proper sleep helps your body and brain repair themselves when it comes to strain, not to mention cleanse themselves of environmental toxins.

As you begin to live better, you'll achieve the ultimate goal: consistent wellness! This will help you get through the most uncertain times. Contact Holmes Chiropractic to learn more about how our treatments help get the best out of you.

When it comes to your back, you might have some preconceived notions about it that might not be totally correct. Below, Holmes Chiropractic goes over a few commonly-told myths about your back as a leading chiropractic care specialist in Houston, TX.

Myth #1: A Little Pain is Normal

When we get older we tend to accept a certain amount of pain varying in degrees depending on how pain tolerant we become in our travels. Any amount of pain in any part of your back is, in fact, NOT NORMAL. If you're experiencing pain, chiropractic treatment is a viable, drug-free solution.

Myth #2: Avoid Flexing and Stretching Your Spine

Actually, stretching out your spine and decompressing from your daily activities is an essential practice you should build. Yoga and pilates are both excellent resources that will help you stretch and even strengthen your spine.

Myth #3: Your Back Health is Unrelated to Your Overall Health

In the world of chiropractic, specialists believe that we as human beings are largely only as healthy as our spine. Our anatomy is inextricably linked to the spine, and back problems can lead to all sorts of health troubles, including GI dysfunction, poor mood, low brainpower, insomnia, nasal congestion, headaches, and more.
