See a Chiropractor, Walk, and Swim for Good Health

By Paul Rothbart

Keeping your body healthy and functioning well can be a challenge. Regular exercise is important as is care from a medical professional. There are many types of workouts and several factors to consider when choosing the best one for you. In general, you want an exercise that works your cardiovascular system, burns calories, and doesn't overly stress your body. Two of the best are walking and swimming. Combining them with chiropractic care can be an excellent way of maintaining good health.


Walking is a long-duration, low-intensity form of exercise that is one of the most effective. Taking a 30-minute walk five times a week raises your pulse rate into the optimum fat-burning zone. It can strengthen your cardiovascular system, reducing your risk of heart disease, heart attack, and stroke. Many physicians consider daily walking the best type of workout to maintain one's health. The low-intensity nature of taking a walk places little stress on the back and joints. A walking regimen can be maintained long-term by people of any age who don't have a disability. 


Another excellent cardio exercise that is low intensity is swimming. The buoyancy of the water reduces the effect of gravity. You don't have the impact of your feet hitting the pavement that you get with running. Like walking, swimming burns fat and strengthens your heart and lungs. It also lowers your risk of heart disease. Swimming can also strengthen muscles and tendons that don't normally get much exercise on dry land. It's an excellent way to build a high level of overall fitness.

Seeing a Chiropractor

Walking and swimming tend to put little stress on the body. Combining these exercises with regular chiropractic care can help your body stay at its healthiest. A chiropractic examination can locate any subluxations or other issues in the spine and joints. The chiropractor can then make adjustments to fix these problems. The body is treated as a whole and all of its parts can be made to function together the way they were designed to. Many people find that they sleep better as a result of regular care. Better sleep helps the body recover from exercise and the rigors of the day. A chiropractor can be very helpful in achieving your goal of good health.

It's a well-known fact that exercise is one of the keys to good health. Walking and swimming are two of the best forms of cardiovascular exercise. They place little stress on the body and can be great boosters of health. Consider a visit to The Joint Chiropractic. You don't need an appointment. Regular chiropractic care may be the icing on the cake to staying in the best possible health.
