Chiropractic Tip: Stretch to Protect Your Mobility

By Sandy Schroeder

If your body feels a little stiffer each morning, you may want to pay attention. When we move less and less, our range of motion can slip away. Backaches and leg pain may show up too.

I love to sit and read, and I work on the computer every day, but it is hard to ignore the implications of not moving enough.

Now I stretch when I get up, do a short yoga session mid-morning, and try to walk before dinner. Sometimes I miss, but overall I feel more limber.

In a culture that sometimes sits almost 90 percent of the day, countering the effects can start with simple morning or evening stretching routines and daily workouts. Take a look at your schedule and fit in a few walking and stretching sessions wherever you can.

Try This Easy Hamstring Stretch

  • Loosen tight shoulders and stretch the hamstrings
  • Stand with feet hip-width apart
  • Link hands behind back
  • Keep legs straight
  • Bend at the hips, tuck the chin and raise hands over head
  • Relax the back of the neck; if the stretch is too extreme, release hands and soften the knees
  • Hold for 30 seconds and then roll up to standing

If the whole idea of moving more to make sure you keep moving fits your life right now, chiropractic may be the perfect partner. The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you staffs a wellness clinic that helps individuals define their needs for relief of pain, health, wellness and fitness.

When you come in, your chiropractor will want to hear about your issues and review your health history. Starting with spinal health, the goal will be to keep your spine healthy and improve your overall health.

Gentle targeted spinal adjustments on a weekly basis may ease aches and pains and create a new sense of well-being.

Many of my friends and relatives have put their lives back together with the help of their chiropractor. When an aching back, pounding headache or sore knees intruded on their lives, their chiropractors helped them find the answers that they needed.

One of my friends was struggling to keep up with her work until weekly chiropractic sessions helped her release the tension, solve the headaches, and move ahead. Another relative had so much back pain that his normally active lifestyle simply stopped. Over a period of time, with the help of his chiropractor, he made it back to work and started enjoying his grandkids and hobbies again.
