Mechanical back pain hampers athletes in Fremont

Mechanical back pain is a blanket term that applies to any pain or dysfunction related to the spine and the supporting structures and musculature. The most common mechanical back pain in sports involves joints of the spine moving out of place. Misalignment of the spine contributes to the following problems for athletes:

  • Lost range of motion
  • Pain caused by nerve compression
  • Muscular imbalance and pain

And if you are pushing for the top of your game, you can't afford a single one of these drawbacks. Read on to find out how we treat mechanical back pain for athletes in the Fremont area.

Blood flow

Why blood flow is important for athletes

Exercise is surely important for improving circulation, but how is circulation important for improving exercise? The more active you are, the more energy your body requires; as you move, the body's metabolic rate increases and muscles demand more oxygen. More energy is needed to continue exercising without fatigue, and the body responds by producing more of the energy-storing molecule ATP. ATP is fuel for your muscles, and it is produced by a process in which oxygen breaks down glucose. Proper oxygenation of the musclesshould therefore be a priority for any athlete. 

Reading in bed

What is more relaxing than reading in bed? 

Reading in bed with good posture! Unfortunately, there is no correct nor ideal posture for reading in bed, and most spinal care specialists would recommend not doing it! But that's not human nature and, acknowledging that the allure of recreating in bed is strong, we must do what we can to mitigate the damage to our spines when undertaking activities such as reading or using a laptop in bed.
