Looking for Key Fitness Options? Chiropractic Helps
By Sandy Schroeder
As we head into spring, exercise may be at the top of the list for improvement. The new federal exercise guidelines have made it clear that we all need to move more. Finding ways to comply can be a challenge in a busy world. If you would welcome some help, chiropractic is a good choice.
The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you helps all sorts of people find the best answers for health, fitness and wellness.
See Your Chiropractor
Stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you to talk with your chiropractor about your current exercise routines, daily schedule and health history. Your chiropractor will start with a spinal health assessment to help you start with a clean slate. When the spine is healthy, overall health often improves too.
The spine allows us to spin through our day, and the central nervous system inside coordinates all of our brain-to-body communication. Regular spinal adjustments may keep the spine healthy and overall health up to par.
A gentle targeted spinal adjustment may relieve any aches or pain that you have and generate better sleep, more energy, or improved alertness.
As you evaluate your benefits, you may use weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments to stay at your peak and move ahead with new exercise options. Together, you, your chiropractor, and your doctor can choose the best exercises for you starting with the new federal guidelines.
Starting With the Guidelines
The new guidelines advise us to move more and sit less, and say any movement is better than none. They invite us to meet the goals by moving wherever we are. They suggest we move more at work during the day, and then find ways to keep moving in the evening.
