You Can't Go Wrong With Exercise and Chiropractic Care

By Donna Stark

Long gone are the days of bed rest when it comes to getting rid of back pain. Now, everyone knows the body needs to stay in motion if true relief is to be found. But simply exercising your way through pain may not be enough. You may need some additional help, and you can find that help at The Joint Chiropractic. 

Whether you are dealing with an injury or a medical condition like osteoarthritis, movement and chiropractic care are key for proper healing. Here's why.

Why Movement Is Important

Sure, there is definitely a time and place for bed rest, but if there is one thing it is great at doing when used too much, it's making your body even weaker than before. Your body craves movement and your muscles want to be engaged, so give them what they need. Take a look at the following reasons why exercise, no matter what the intensity is, is so important during the healing process.

  • Helps strengthen muscles
  • Decreases the risk of muscle mass loss
  • Improves range of motion
  • Strengthens bones
  • Improves blood circulation
  • Releases the body's feel-good chemicals
  • Reduces the risk of further damage or future injuries

Why Chiropractic Care Is Important

In addition to daily movement, you should also get in to see your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic as soon as you can. The chiropractic approach is safe, effective, and all-natural. On top of that, it is appropriate for people of all ages! Here are some of the ways that regular chiropractic adjustments can help alleviate the pain you are experiencing.

  • Eases muscle tension and strain
  • Corrects alignment issues and joint dysfunction
  • Restores optimal function to the nervous system
  • Reduces inflammation, friction, and pressure
  • Soothes irritated nerves
  • Restores proper balance in the body
  • Increases range of motion, flexibility, and function of the spine
  • Decreases the risk of further joint degeneration

Exercise and Chiropractic Care Are a Winning Combination

It's time to get out of bed! With your doctor's permission, a planned exercise routine, and regular chiropractic adjustments, you can easily reduce the amount of back pain you are living with. Just make sure you design your fitness routine with appropriate workouts! Start off slowly and stick with low-impact exercises until your body is ready for more. And while you are doing that, head on in to see your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic too. They can help reduce your pain and prepare your body for action! There is nothing better for pain than the combination of exercise and routine chiropractic care at The Joint Chiropractic. You can count on that!
