Muscle building relies on efficiency: the efficiency of your chosen workout plan, the efficiency of your body's protein synthesis and the efficiency of your nervous system. At American Canyon Chiropractor, we are here to help with the latter. Muscles begin the growth process when motor neurons in the brain send a signal that tell the muscle to contract. In this way, the easier it is for that communication to occur, the quicker the muscle will build. Subluxation is therefore extremely detrimental to the serious muscle builder.
At our office, we support muscle builders in their endeavors by ensuring that the spine is free of subluxation, ensuring that the nerve pathways are clear. Nutrition and rest are also important factors in the process: while you stress the muscles and create tiny tears in the muscle fibers at the gym, the actual growth occurs during rest. During this period, muscle protein synthesis must be greater than the body's protein breakdown. Proper attention to nutrition and adequate rest ensures that you are growing muscle at maximum efficiency.
If you are looking to take the next step in growing serious muscle, chiropractic may be a great asset to consider: together, we can create a multi-faceted plan that will grow muscle while protecting the longevity of your spine and ensuring overall health.
