Athletes are rough on their bodies. They not only endure regular, everyday wear and tear, but they ask their bodies to take on much more stress than the average body takes on. They ask their muscles to overwork and rework themselves continuously, and athletes are more inclined to injuries such as falls and hits.
All of these issues will throw a body out of balance and alignment– fast. When your body’s balance and alignment aren’t working at their peak, the body is unable to fulfill its potential. This is especially hard on an athlete because they need their bodies to perform at their best at all times- whether preparing for an event, during an event, or recovering from an event.
