When training for a sport you are training asymmetrically, meaning you are training lopsided and irregular, working the same muscles and joints repetitively. While you may think this is the way you should train for your sport, it is not a good training characteristic.
As mentioned in my previous newsletter asymmetrical training has numerous negative effects, which include:
- Blocked Nerves.
- Diminished Blood Flow.
- Reduced Agility
- Compromised Endurance
- Decrease Speed
- Increase in injuries - aches-strains-sprains-pain-torn ligaments, joint pain, muscle pain.
- Weakened Immune system.
The Effects of Blocked Nerves on Athletic Performance
Most people associate athletic injuries with actually participating in their sport, injuries can occur at any time; on the field, in the weight room and injuries can happen outside of training. Poor form, incorrect movement, asymmetrical training and a myriad of other circumstances can cause an increase in the potential for injury.
A pinched (compressed) nerve is one of the most common under reported athletic injuries. (Stanford Children's Health). Regrettably, it can be one of the more serious injuries affecting your athletic endeavors and if not treated correctly it will stay with you your whole life. Yes, a compressed (pinched) nerve can be a career ending injury if not treated effectively. When not treated, this injury can go on for days, months and years and at any time could lead to the death of the nerve and possibly cause paralysis.
Nerves are responsible for carrying instructions to your body. When a nerve is pinched the signal is disrupted and the affects of this disruption show up in numerous ways.
Consequences on an Athlete Suffering from Nerve Compression
The effects from a pinched nerve can and will affect other areas of your body.
- Numbness & weakness in the arms, legs and hands resulting from diminished blood flow and electrical impulses to the extremities; for instance your hands and feet fall asleep.
- Reduced muscle contraction.
- Reduced agility.
- Compromised endurance.
- Decreased speed.
- Increased potential for other injuries such as chronic aches, strains and sprains.
- Pain, torn ligaments, joints and muscles.
- Decreased immune system efficacy.
- Diminished nutrients feeding the nerves.
- Loss of ability to focus on goal due to symptoms and the bodies inability to respond fully.
- Increase in recovery time from athletic endeavors.
- Sharp ache or burning sensation.
- Radiating Pain.
- Numbness, decreased sensation.
Prolonged Nerve Compression
- Muscle weakness.
- Reduced reflexes
- Atrophy or death of the nerve transmitting the electrical impulses.
Any ability to counteract the influences of asymmetrical training using conventional training is negligible.
A NEW TECHNOLOGY IN ATHLETIC TRAINING IS CHANGING THE WAY WE TRAIN.
