How to Get Your Body Ready for a Fun Spring Season

By Donna Stark

There are plenty of things to look forward to in spring, but if you want to enjoy the season ahead you have to take care of one specific thing first ... your body! After all, if you are struggling with joint stiffness or pain, how do you expect to have fun? Luckily, there are some simple exercises you can do to get your body ready for all the activities you love. Take a look at the following suggestions from your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic.

Yoga

Yoga is a great way to loosen your tight muscles and get the kinks out of your stiff joints. The poses you hold during your yoga session help to stretch and lengthen your muscles. They also help strengthen the function of your joints. And the meditative qualities yoga provides can reduce a lot of the stress and anxiety you hold in your body. There is no better way to enter a new season than with increased strength, more flexibility, and less stress.

Swimming

If you want to get your body ready for swimsuit weather, nothing beats the workout you will get while swimming. Swimming is good for those who suffer from joint pain because it is a low-impact, joint-friendly workout. The buoyancy of the water acts as a cushion to your joints and the heat from the pool helps to relax your muscles. Swimming is the perfect all-body workout and the easiest way to get a taste for summer!

Strength and Balance Exercises

Let's not forget the importance of strength and balance in the body. A stronger, more balanced body will generally sustain fewer injuries than one that is not, and that's important if you are hoping to stay as active as you can during the season. Reduce your risk of injuries by engaging in daily balance exercises and by incorporating more strength training into your fitness routine. Ask your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic or a physical trainer at your gym for suggestions if you aren't sure where to start.

Preparing Your Body for a Fun Spring Season

At The Joint Chiropractic, we believe that a little preparation can go a long way, so take the time to prepare your body now for the spring season ahead. With the suggestions above, or with your own ideas, it won't take long before your body will be ready to tackle all the fun activities you have planned! Here's to an enjoyable spring season!
