At Marty Chiropractic & Wellness, we understand the needs of athletes. Dr. Jeremy was a collegiate Track & Field athlete and has worked with athletes from the PeeWee to professional level. Dr. Josh was a three-sport high school athlete and has extensive experience treating marathoners, triathletes, and other athletes. Athletes need to fuel their bodies properly in order to maximize performance and recovery time while minimizing injuries. Not only do athletes typically need more calories, they also need to be increasing their proteins and healthy fats. Increasing proteins helps your body build additional muscle tissue or repair existing muscle tissue after a workout. Athletes need anywhere from 1.2grams/kg bodyweight -2.5g/kg each and every day depending on their sport! Increasing fats helps to strengthen connective tissues such as tendons and ligaments while also increasing the shock-absorbing fat pads your body uses to disperse impact while running, jumping, or playing a collision sport. Schedule your nutritional consultation and ask to receive a functional sports movement assessment to help you maximize performance!
