Exercise Your Options To Escape Joint Pain
By Sandy Schroeder
When everything becomes an effort, your joints may be letting you down. As we move through the day, sore knees or aching shoulders can add a layer of pain to everything we do. Schedules are revised and events are skipped as exhaustion sets in. Tasks accumulate and small pleasures, like walking the dog, become a real effort.
Chiropractic treatment and more activity may help you change everything.
Seeing Your Chiropractor
Stop in at The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you to start working on the problem. The Joint’s doctors of chiropractic are well equipped to help you.
They help individuals find pain relief throughout the body, easing pain in the back, neck, knees, ankles, shoulders, elbows and wrists. Pain caused by joint restrictions responds well to spinal adjustments.
The adjustment is a gentle targeted movement to improve motion of the body’s spinal column and extremities creating mobility and soothing nerve irritation. The spine houses the central nervous system that controls almost everything the body does. When that brain-to-body communication network works well, overall health improves, too.
As you assess the results of your adjustment, you may want to consider weekly 15-minute adjustments and exercises that are approved by your doctor and chiropractor. Staying active, and maintaining strength and stretching exercises, keep your joints functioning. Harvard Health outlines the benefits.
Ease pressure - Exercise helps to relieve joint pain by strengthening surrounding muscles that work to relieve pressure on the joint.
Eliminate tightness - Stretching and walking keeps the tendons, muscles and ligaments supple, avoiding shortening and tensing that cause more pain.
Add nutrients – Exercise boosts synovial fluid, the joint lubricant that brings oxygen and nutrients to the joints.
Trigger natural relief – Activity increases natural compounds in the body that help muffle painful twinges.
Stay trim – Exercise helps lower weight to take pressure off of hips, ankles and knees.
Boost your mood – Exercise naturally sparks endorphins to improve the day.
I have watched many people regain their lives as their chiropractors helped them ease joint pain. Often they started with an aching elbow, knee or ankle. As they regained their balance, they continued to rely on chiropractic support.
