Enhance Your Chiropractic Care with Stretches

By Donna Stark

There are so many things that are great on their own but may be just a little bit better when paired with something else. For example, a cookie is good, but it's even better with a glass of milk. And it's helpful to have a door on your house, but even more so if that door comes with a lock. Even a vacation can really never be that bad, but it's a lot more fun when you are with those you love. Different types of things certainly have ways of complementing each other, don't they? The same can be said for certain aspects of your health too! We all know that exercise and a healthy diet go together really well, but did you ever consider what may complement the chiropractic care you receive? How about stretching?

Stretching and Chiropractic Care

Did you stretch when you woke up this morning or after you were sitting for a bit at work? You have probably already done it several times throughout the day and haven't given it a second thought. We stretch because it makes us feel better ... it loosens our tight muscles, relaxes our stiff joints. So it should be no surprise to anyone that stretching certainly has its benefits. It might be a surprise though, to discover just exactly how beneficial it is when coupled with the chiropractic adjustments that you receive at The Joint Chiropractic. Together, they bring optimal function to the body. Let's take a look.

  • Keeps the spine properly aligned - When your muscles aren't stretched properly they begin to tighten up, but that doesn't mean they stay symmetrical during that process. One side may pull more than the other which can result in your spine being pulled that way too. Stretching prevents this from happening and when combined with regular chiropractic care, has an even greater impact.
  • Improves flexibility and range of motion - Stretching can improve the flexibility and range of motion in your body, as you probably already know, but did you also know that this helps to reduce the risk of pain and future injuries, especially when you add it to the chiropractic care you receive? In addition to flexibility and range of motion, chiropractic care and stretching also improve the body's balance and coordination.
  • Relieves lower back pain - Chiropractic care removes joint restrictions and nerve interferences in the spine, and stretching helps release tension and ease muscle stiffness. Together, they act as a great pain reliever for people of all ages!

The Benefits of Both

Individually, stretching and chiropractic care have many great benefits, but when combined together, their benefits are immeasurable! In fact, many patients often find that their injuries heal faster, their pain is reduced, and their overall wellness is better than ever. So head on in to The Joint Chiropractic today ... after stretching, of course ... and save that cookie and milk for another time.
