Try Chiropractic Treatment for All Your Health Needs

By Stephen R. Farris

If you visit your chiropractor on a regular basis, chances are you and he/she have talked about stretching and exercise, and maintaining a healthy weight and core.

To help prevent certain back problems, it's important to follow your chiropractor's tips and suggestions. After all, their main goal is to help get you back to a healthy, active lifestyle.

One of the first things you should do before any exercise routine is to do a few easy stretches to help loosen up your muscles and joints. Develop a stretching plan and stick with it each day.

If you're unsure how to stretch using the correct technique, ask your chiropractor and see if they can give you a short demonstration. They may also have literature available with examples in them. You can always get on the internet and seek out free videos about stretching and how to do them properly.

Some of the stretches your chiropractor might recommend to help get you started are as follows:

Sitting

In a seated position try doing a few sets of these.

  • Side bend 
  • Twist (both sides)
  • Forward lean

Lying Down

  • Knees to chest
  • Torso stretch
  • Hamstring stretch

Standing

  • Modified squat
  • Backward extension
  • Forward extension

By doing stretching and undergoing your regular chiropractic treatments can help reduce or, in some cases, eliminate your back or joint pain. But you have to get started and stick with it in order to get positive results.

You might also try exercises such as planks to help strengthen your core area. Don't forget your diet either. Keeping your weight down can also help trim belly fat around your core, as well as reduce back and joint problems.

Your chiropractor may suggest doing easy exercises like walking, jogging, cycling, and if possible, swimming laps. They can even provide you with nutritional tips for weight loss.

Come to think of it, visiting and talking with your local chiropractor could help you find the answers to just about all of your health, fitness, nutrition, and mental health questions.
