Understanding the spine – the foundation of the body
The human body is a complex structure, and the spine is its most complex structure. The spine is composed of a column of 33 vertebrae (bones) separated by discs, which act as cushions to absorb shock. Each bone is connected by muscles and ligaments to the bones above and below it, with the exception of the first bone in the spine, the Atlas, which is connected to the skull. The spine is responsible for protecting the spinal cord and it gives us the ability to bend, sit, stand and run. It also gives us the ability to lift and rotate our arms, twist our torso and bend forward. The spine is a very important part of our bodies and we need to take good care of it.
How an injury can make competitive skating difficult
Competitive skating can be difficult, even for an experienced skater. It takes a lot of strength, endurance and a lot of practice to perfect the skills needed to become an elite skater. However, skaters who have been injured may have a difficult time getting back into the groove of things. Injuries can be a normal part of skating, but there are ways to get back up and skating as soon as possible.
For example, skaters who have suffered from a concussion may find it difficult to get back on the ice. They may feel dizzy, confused and find it hard to concentrate while they are skating. It is best to take some time off and just focus on getting better with good chiropractor care. When you are ready to get back on the ice, there are a few things you can do to help avoid further injury that you will know from your North York Chiropractor.

How competitive skaters can benefit from North York chiropractic adjustments?
Skating is no easy feat. Whether you’re a world champion or an amateur, the sport comes with a myriad of physical and mental challenges. Skaters often suffer from back pain, knee injuries, torn ligaments, spinal cord injuries, and fractured bones.
Since the sport is so physically demanding, skaters often neglect their own health and well-being, which can lead to further injury and pain. One of the biggest benefits of chiropractic adjustments is they’re a non-invasive, drug-free way to manage pain, injuries, and overall health.
