T-minus 2 days and counting left to go before you run one of the world’s LARGEST and greatest races, the New York City Marathon! The biggest question now that you have completed your training and are preparing for your race is “Have you mentally visualized yourself crossing the finish line?” This is what successful runners do. They strategize what they will look and feel like the entire race course of 26.2 miles, in addition to their splits during the race. This is a #1 priority because the mind is stronger than the body.
Let me give you 3 easy tips as I have run almost a dozen New York City Marathons and have been teaching runners to become champions for over 25 years…1. Get quiet, shut your eyes and mentally image that finish time that you are goaling for… see it on the board. 2. Imagine how you will feel when you cross that finish line. Will you raise your arms in victory? Will this be one of the biggest accomplishments of your life? 3. In your mind’s eye, see what you you look like. What are you wearing? What is your body posture? Have you given it everything you have?
This is your race, your New York City Marathon. Do your mental imaging and own it!
Best of luck to all of you out there running this weekend in the New York City Marathon!
Anderson Peak Performance is proud to announce our new testing system, the new Motion Analysis Technology EuMotus! We will be the FIRST New York City practice to offer this new technology.
BodyWatch™ by EuMotus is a software and hardware solution that combines proprietary cutting-edge algorithms with the latest infrared-powered motion-tracking technology. Harnessing the power of the Microsoft Kinect, a powerful 3D sensor, BodyWatch™ records the movement of over 20 body joints in real time (no markers needed) and analyzes the biomechanics of more than 35 key body metrics.
The benefits of BodyWatch™ by EuMotus
Recover better with data. Anderson Peak Performance combines incredible experience and expertise with large amounts of accurate and objective data to give you the best results. By analyzing exact ranges of motion, measures of stability, and symmetry, we pinpoint lingering deficiencies that can block your movement patterns, slow your recovery progress, and potentially cause additional injury. Armed with this information, Anderson Peak Performance can elevate your functional health to a whole new level.
Faster assessment and more focused treatment. Traditional assessments can take a significant part of the precious time you have with us at Anderson Peak Performance. BodyWatch™ minimizes the amount of time spent on the assessment, thanks to its cutting-edge infrared sensor and algorithms. Anderson Peak Performance can now get a full analysis of your functional health in just a few minutes and spend more time treating you. No more time wasted.
Understand yourself on a whole new level. BodyWatch™ is designed to empower not just the Anderson Peak Performance practice, but also yourself. Have you ever felt lost when talking with a health or fitness professional about your body movement and structure? BodyWatch™ makes understanding your specific movement patterns easy, with simple scoring methods, clear visuals, and video playback. With this knowledge, you will find yourself more engaged with your chiropractor. You’ll better understand your recovery program and its rationale, and you’ll even find yourself more aware of how you move in your day to day and find ways to optimize it!

Chiropractic has been a big part of the performances of the Olympic athletes competing in the 2016 Summer Games in Rio.
Did you get to see on NBC on Sunday, August 14th, the Swedish golfer Henrik Stenson? He was being adjusted by his Chiropractor on the ground in the middle of the fairway. The unknowing media billed as a “massage”, yet it was a Chiropractic adjustment that helped Mr. Stenson to bring home a Silver medal.
Later, Team USA Track & Field 200 and 400 Meter runner Lashawn Merritt gave his Chiropractor, Dr. Dave Pascal, a huge shout out on NBC. He thanked him for his Chiropractic adjustments being essential for peak performance.
So does the health advantages of Chiropractic care on medal winning athletes from multiple sports and various countries differ from the benefits that you can achieve through Chiropractic? NO! They are the same.
As humans, we all have a Nervous System. This Nervous System communicates with all the muscles, ligaments, tendons and organs in the body. If they don’t work, you don’t work!
Do you have spinal tension and muscular stress in your body? Is it a result of all of your personal and professional commitments in today’s fast-paced world? If the answer is yes, you are the same as an Olympian.
The stressors on an athletes’ body and mind are different than ours. Yet they can create the same deleterious effects on the physical form. Spinal and muscular pressure can cause dysfunction in the nervous system, decreased muscle function and altered biomechanics. I, Dr. Jeannette M. Anderson, have worked with high performance athletes. I’ve found you don’t have to be an Olympian to win your own gold medals with a lifestyle of Chiropractic care and wellness!
These benefits take time. Through repetitive adjustments and biomechanical correction, we can improve an individual’s performance. It’s a program of care similar to training for an event, whether it be a marathon, an event for charity, an active trip, Ironman or the ability to get up in the morning without pain. It took time to get this way and it takes time to train the body how to perform and be well.
How do I know?
I have 26 years of experience in high performance care. Also, I have been the Team USA Chiropractor for the 2004 Summer Olympics, 2013 Medical Director for the US Paracycling World Championships, USOC Lake Placid Volunteer Medical Staff, and Medical Team Chiropractor for the National High School Track & Field Championships for over 20 years. I have run almost a dozen marathons and am an avid biker, skier and hiker. My body is at peak performance because I live a healthy lifestyle where Chiropractic care is the core essential of my performance program. So a big shout out for all the Olympians in Rio that utilize the benefits of Chiropractic adjustments for performance and Olympic medals. An even bigger shout out for the Chiropractors who, as part of the medical team help the athletes live their dreams… AND YOU CAN TOO! – Dr. Jeannette M.
