Bodybuilders often push their physical limits by lifting heavier weights. When they push too far, they can easily put themselves at risk of injury when their bodies are exposed to excessive amounts of stress. While microscopic tears are perfectly normal, larger tears are not, which are a result of a strain.

Dr. Licitra said: “Through spinal adjustments and manual manipulations, chiropractors can help to improve a patient’s flexibility so as to fend off any possibility of a strain.”

Some of the top injuries experienced by bodybuilders and weightlifters alike are disc herniations, achilles tendonitis, SLAP tears, tennis elbow and hamstring pulls and tears. With periodic treatment from a chiropractor, these injuries could be avoided altogether.

Besides reducing the risk of future injuries, Dr. Licitra adds that, “Chiropractic care can also help reduce current pain and discomfort experienced by those who partake in bodybuilding or weightlifting. Chiropractors such as myself can help expedite the recovery process by increasing blood flow to these athletes’ muscles.”

Dr. Licitra has over 35 years of experience under his belt and has one of the highest ratings in Clifton, NJ. He is credited for improving the quality of life for many of his patients who have come to him for his experienced care. His many reviews come from patients with a wide range of conditions like back, shoulder, neck, knee, and hip pain.

He offers free consultations to new patients and currently accepts Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS), Aetna, and United Healthcare insurance plans. His practice is open 5 days a week, including Saturdays. To make an appointment, contact his chiropractic office at (973)-470-0632.
