In order to maintain a healthy lifestyle and perform to the best of your ability, it’s important to provide your body with the strength and energy needed to keep you active by eating the right foods. The calories in the food we eat give our bodies nutrients such as vitamins, protein, minerals, fat, carbohydrates, and water—all are essential, but in the right amounts. Combined with physical activity, a balanced, nutritional diet can help you achieve and maintain a healthy weight, provide you with the energy needed for daily and physical activities, and lessen your chances for certain diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.

As more and more children are becoming involved in sports at a younger age, correctly training them is necessary to ensure they move efficiently while staying safe, consistent, and strong. Our youth movement training begins with breathing techniques and moves into simple stretches and exercises. These act as building blocks that will eventually correlate with and are essential to several sports and activities. Exposing children to a variety of movement challenges allows them to develop effective coordination and mobility that will set the foundation for more complex sports skills and fundamentals later on.
Rather than treating athletes with medications and surgeries, sports chiropractic care is a hands-on approach that focuses on healing the entire body through treatment of the musculoskeletal system. With extensive knowledge of sports and sport related injuries, sport chiropractors are able to diagnose, treat, and prevent injuries. This type of care is essential for athletes at every level who seek longevity on the playing field and want to enhance their overall performance and injury rehabilitation. Conveniently located within the Field House premises, 8 Gradys Performance Center is proud to recommend Speegle Sport & Spine.

They also look at factors like exercise and participation to identify and understand the lasting effects it may have throughout their lifetime.
