Limber Up and Move Ahead With Chiropractic

By Sandy Schroeder

Feeling a little sluggish? Start moving more with a chiropractic boost and some smart stretching.  

The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you provides licensed chiropractors who can help you ease aches and pain and improve your overall health with smart health and wellness steps. 

See Your Chiropractor 

When  you talk with your chiropractor, explain where you are with pain and what you want for your future. You will find out how your spinal health can be a major part of the solution. 

Your spine keeps you mobile, and the central nervous system inside keeps your whole body functioning. Gentle targeted spinal adjustments may open lots of new doors for you. Each person experiences individual benefits that range from improved metabolism to better sleep. Or you might feel more energetic and mentally aware as you become more limber and pain-free. 

As your spine and nervous system experience a fresh alignment you may choose to use weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments to keep all of the great benefits coming. 

At the same time, your chiropractor can recommend more wellness steps such as this advice from Mayo Clinic on stretching. 

Make Stretching Part of Exercising 

According to the Mayo Clinic, stretching is a critical part of exercising. Many cardio and strength exercises tighten the muscles and stretching is needed to keep them loose. Look at what stretching does: 

  • Makes chores easier as your body becomes more flexible 
  • Keeps you walking by improving your range of motion 
  • Makes good posture a healthy habit 
  • Improves circulation throughout the body 
  • Releases muscle tension to relieve stress 
  • Prevents injuries caused by tight muscles 

When you start new stretching exercises, check in with your doctor and your chiropractor before you start. Also, remember these key points. 

Always warm up first - To avoid injury do some marching in place as you pump your arms or take a brisk walk,. If you are tight for time stretch after exercise. 

Never hold your breath while stretching - That could cause your blood pressure to go up. 

Focus on major muscle groups - Pick muscles that you use for work or play and target hips, thighs, calves, neck and shoulders and lower back. 

Hold a stretch for at least 30 seconds - To lengthen tissue safely it takes time and one stretch is usually enough for each muscle group. 

When you are ready to feel great, visit The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you and find out more about the personal healthcare plans that eliminate the hassle of insurance. Walk-ins are welcome.
