Chiropractic Tips When Your Joints Aren't Well

By Brandi Goodman  

Whether you're experiencing an unusual joint ache -- because the cold weather is playing a role in how you're feeling or because you've overexerted yourself and are now feeling sore because of it -- the chiropractor has some tips to help. There are always things you can try first to help loosen your joints and make them feel more limber and free. Give these a try and see which works best for you.

Stretch It Out

Stretching is one of the easiest and best things you can do for your joint health. You should never sit for hours without ever stretching out your body whatsoever. You need to get up and stretch regularly to prevent stiffness from setting in fast and leaving you feeling tight and sore. 

Raise yourself up on your toes and reach toward the ceiling. Bend back slightly. Lean to the side and then the other. Just a few simple stretches can go a long way.

Drink Your Water

Water is necessary for all aspects of health. You should do your best to drink your daily intake of water. It can help lubricate your joints and keep them feeling well. People don't always drink as much water during colder months because they aren't overheated and feeling parched because of it. However, you still need your 8 glasses of 8 ounces of water every day to thrive.

Take a Swim

Swimming may not be possible outdoors when it's cold outside, but there's always somewhere to go for an indoor swimming experience. The water provides a great relief for the joints. You can exercise in a body of water without putting unnecessary stress on your knees, which is what happens when you work out on hard ground. Find a local gym with a pool or see which hotels in the area offer pool use for a small fee.

Get Routine Chiropractic

Of course, a visit to the chiropractor is always a good idea. Getting routine chiropractic care can help to alleviate the discomfort you've been feeling and ensure no joint restrictions are in place to cause any problems. Visit the chiropractor as soon as possible to start receiving the regular adjustments your joints need.

Stop in at The Joint when you're ready for your adjustment. You may notice some relief for the joint pain you've been feeling. You'll also receive additional guidance on other options you can try when your joints are feeling less than stellar.
