A late post today but one that I think anyone who goes to the gym will be interested to read. Enjoy this article from our colleges Research Department
What’s Getting People Stronger Than Going To The Gym?
Hot off the press research findings!
Speaking to the Director of Research from the New Zealand College of Chiropractic we are very excited about some preliminary research analysis of a current study taking place at the New Zealand Centre for Chiropractic Research.
The current study is exploring the effects of adjusting the spine on brain and muscle function in a healthy population. The preliminary results seem to indicate that chiropractic care increases strength, prevents fatigue and improves the cortical drive to a leg muscle. These findings would be of great importance for anyone interested in enhanced performance. The scientists involved in the study are baffled by their preliminary findings, as the results they have found from a single session of chiropractic care are similar to what has recently been published following 3 weeks of strength training.
The Research Director Dr Heidi Haavik (pictured) does warn us with some caution. The results so far are only preliminary, she highlights, and adds that the final analysis is being completed at this very moment. The preliminary results have been submitted to the World Federation of Chiropractic Conference to be held in Durban, South Africa in April this year, where they have been accepted for platform presentation.
We now eagerly await the final complete analysis.
