How Your Chiropractor Can Help
Stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you to see how it works. The Joint’s licensed chiropractors are well equipped to help. When you come in, your chiropractor will want to talk about your lifestyle, fitness goals, aches or pains, and health history.
Focusing on spinal health, the chiropractor’s goal will be to upgrade quality of life and day-to-day health and fitness. The spine houses the central nervous system that serves as command central for everything we do. When the spine works better, everything else may, too.
A gentle targeted spinal adjustment may ease aches and pains, and generate well-being with benefits such as better sleep, more energy, or more alertness. Weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments may be the next step to keep the benefits coming, and launch a fitness plan.
- Pin down your goals
- Find workable spots in your daily schedule
- Check in with your doctor for approval
- Look for exercises that fit you
If you are new to toning exercises, you may want to work with a trainer and begin slowly doing what’s comfortable for you. A daily fitness routine might include walking or jogging, and exercises such as this body sculpting example from shape.com.
The inchworm - Start in a standing position and fold the body forward from the hips, bending knees and lowering palms to the ground. Slowly inch the body forward, walking one hand and then the other to reach a full plank position with the body supported by the arms and feet. Keep the spine neutral. Then reverse the process coming back to a standing position.
The importance of exercise and good health and fitness can't be stressed enough in today's world. Just a few minutes of daily walking can make a world of difference. If you don't want to be fit and healthy for yourself, think about being fit and healthy for those you love, and those who love you.
