|Chiropractic Care and the Benefits of Exercise
Chiropractic care provides a boost for all types of exercise. For all of us, time is immensely valuable, and we want to be sure that we get the most out of our exercise time.
What is it exactly that we "get" out of exercise? Aside from the well-known physical benefits in terms of lean muscle mass development and enhanced cardiovascular functioning, we also derive a sense of personal power, satisfaction from a job well done, and increased concentrations of endorphins flowing through the blood stream. All this is very good.
Regular chiropractic care helps ensure that our bodies are capable of performing all the tasks that are required during exercise. Regular chiropractic care optimizes spinal joint mobility and mobility of other key joints such as the hip, knee, and shoulder. Regular chiropractic care removes mechanical roadblocks to full flexibility and stretchability. By providing these benefits, regular chiropractic care helps reduce the possibility of injury and helps ensure that we get what we want from our exercise time.
Dr. Casey Ferguson DC has obtained the postgraduate designation of Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician® (CCSP®) by the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians™ (ACBSP™). The CCSP® certification requires the doctor to attend a minimum of 100 hours of a 120 hour postgraduate program. This instruction is specific to physical fitness and the evaluation and treatment of injuries encountered in sports. Following the completion of these hours, the doctor must then take and successfully pass a comprehensive written examination.
This training will aid the doctor in the prevention and treatment of athletic injuries by enhancing his diagnostic skills and patient care. The CCSP® certification exists to provide a uniform standard of education that assures teams and athletes that the doctor has met a minimum level of competency in chiropractic sports medicine. Dr. Ferguson DC joins over 5500 others internationally who hold this designation.
