How to Make the Most of Chiropractic Care
By Genevieve Smith
Wouldn't it be great to know ways to enhance your chiropractic care through a daily routine and ensure the benefits from your program are maintained through daily actions? So, next time you drop into The Joint Chiropractic, what questions should you ask to discover how to supplement the adjustment your chiropractor has made?
What can I do on my own time to enhance my recovery?
It’s possible that you are doing things daily that are harming your recovery. From how you engage with your workspace to exercise choices, there are a variety of physical habits which can either exacerbate pain or reduce it. By asking your chiropractor, you will have the opportunity to share more about your physical routines and learn how you can tweak your habits for your healthiest body possible.
What is the best way to position myself while sleeping?
While daily routines can have an impact on your skeletal health, nearly a third of each day is spent lying down. Are you sleeping in the best position for your limbs? You may be placing a strain on your joints and require added pillows to help your sleeping posture. Each particular person has different needs, so ask your chiropractor the best ways to adjust your sleeping positions to reduce joint and muscle stress.
Should I be considering changes to my footwear?
Unfortunately, not all footwear is created equal. Flip-flops may afford that beachy vibe, but they do not offer support. That said, there are different styles of sandals that can offer more support, such as strapped styles and hiking sandals, which your chiropractor can speak to as a better choice for you. Certain styles of high heels can be worse than others for your posture, as well. A spiked heel can throw your posture out of whack, while a platform or a pump with insoles built in may be a better fit. Heavy boots can also create unnecessary strain on your posture, and you may have to find a lighter version of the winter shoe.
