Uniting Chiropractics and Yoga

The ancient Indian practice of yoga has steeped itself deep in the contemporary lives of many mainstream Americans. Through the years it has become disassociated with its religious connotations and is seen for its mental and physical benefits, allowing the practice to be used by some people strictly as a form of exercise. It is estimated that around sixteen million Americans incorporate yoga into their fitness routine, and it is growing in popularity every day. 

Yoga has been shown to contribute all sorts of benefits to people’s lives when practiced regularly. It can improve balance, strength, flexibility and endurance. When these aspects are improved, then it can enhance other workout routines. Since yoga is all about repetition, it causes the person working out to pay extra attention to technique. This mindset can help with all types of workouts, not only yoga. It is an exercise that all age groups and fitness levels can participate in. It doesn’t matter how new or advanced you are, it is designed to be accessed by all types of people. 

Since yoga is a low impact activity, it is a great workout for people who have various injuries that are keeping them from participating in more intense exercises. If you are recovering from an injury and you are using yoga as a way to get back into the fitness world, then it is important to explore other options that will enhance your healing. Chiropractic may be a great supplement to your yoga training. It is a form of natural care that bases itself on the balance and harmony of the body. When received regularly it can effectively treat many different issues, such as chronic pain, carpel tunnel, headaches, sciatic pain, high blood pressure, arthritis, sleep problems and fibromyalgia. When used in conjunction with yoga, chiropractic care may enable the body to function at its optimal potential. 

Chiropractic care focuses on supporting the systems of the body, as well as improving the physical functions of the body. Chiropractors realign the spine by manipulating the vertebrae either by hand or with small, specialty tools. When the spine is aligned, then practicing yoga is not only easier, but it also more beneficial. With a healthy spine, yoga is able to strengthen the surrounding muscles through various poses. Yoga positioning not only strengthens the body, but it improves posture and improves the body’s range of motion. It can also help support the nervous system, much like chiropractic, by calming the body. By combining these two types of healthcare, then the body may become more balanced, strengthened and overall healthier.
