Exercise and Chiropractic Can Work Together

By Paul Rothbart

One of the keys to good health is exercise. At least 30 minutes a day, 4-5 days a week is recommended by health professionals. Staying active is part of a healthy lifestyle. In order to maintain high levels of activity, it's necessary to care for one's body. Seeing a chiropractor can be an excellent way to keep your body in the proper condition to stay active. Chiropractic care can help you exercise, and exercise can help your chiropractic keep your body working right.

It Can Make Treatment More Effective

When a chiropractor makes adjustments, your spine and joints are properly aligned. There is truth in the phrase, use it or lose. If you are sedentary, any subluxations or problems you may have had will probably return. By getting regular exercise, you can help keep your body aligned between visits. There is evidence that suggests that chiropractic care combined with exercise may be more effective for patients with back and neck pain.

It Can Reduce the Risk of Recurrence

Having a chiropractor take the time to find and adjust your compressed discs, subluxations, and other problems can relieve your pain and get your whole body functioning together. There is always a chance of the problem recurring, which is why regular visits are a good idea. If you choose not to exercise, the risk of recurrence increases. It's like throwing away all that work the chiropractor did on your body.

You Take an Active Part in Your Care

It's a good feeling when you are self-reliant. The chiropractor does things you can't do for yourself, but by sticking with a good exercise routine, you can participate in your care. This can help you feel even better by boosting your confidence. You and your chiropractor can work as partners in keeping your body functioning optimally.

Eliminate Fear and Avoidance of Activity

Pain is never pleasant and it's natural for it to cause some fear. People may instinctively avoid activities that cause pain, even after treatment. It can take some courage, but by staying active and continuing with your exercise routine, you can get over the fear. It may build trust in your chiropractor and that can also make treatment more effective.

Staying healthy and keeping your body in good shape are worthy goals. Getting regular exercise is an important part of achieving them. Consider a visit to The Joint Chiropractic. You don't need an appointment. Regular care combined with exercise can keep you pain-free and as active as you like.
