Ease Your Running Pains With Chiropractic Care

By Donna Stark

How many times have you attempted to add running to your daily fitness routine? And how many times has that idea instantly been shot down by pain? If you are looking to add more variety to your workouts and would like to join your friends on their morning jogs, you may need to make some adjustments to what you are doing now. Although pain and running don't belong together, you and exercise do. And believe it or not, the changes you should consider making are easier than you think.

Running Without Pain

No matter what your reasons are to want to run, you need to keep one thing in mind ... reducing your pain. And your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic can help you achieve that, not only with the gentle adjustments they provide, but with plenty of safety tips as well. Take a look.

  • Chiropractic adjustments - Seeing your chiropractor regularly can help reduce the pain that is stopping you from running to your heart's delight! By placing your body's joints in proper alignment, your chiropractor can help with reducing the risk of common injuries that many runners face, such as plantar fasciitis, bursitis, joint dysfunction, sprains, and strains. Chiropractic care can also help improve your breathing which can have a huge impact on your endurance! But more importantly, if you are in pain or dealing with an injury, chiropractic care can help reduce the length of time it takes for the healing and recovery process to occur.
  • Appropriate footwear - Your local chiropractors can't stress the importance of appropriate footwear enough! You need to make sure the shoes you wear provide plenty of support and have the proper traction for the terrain that you run on. And if they don't? It's time for a new pair of shoes! Head to your local running store and ask to have your gait analyzed. It's quick and easy, and so worth it! There really is no better way to pick the perfect pair of running shoes.
  • Warm up and cool down - You can reduce the risk of pain by warming your body up before you hit the road. Start with some dynamic stretching and gentle movements. Just 10 minutes of doing so will help loosen muscles and increase heart rate, body temperature, and blood flow. And when you are done running, it's important to cool down as well with some static stretching.

Go Ahead, Join Your Friends

Are you ready to attempt running again? You have all the tools under your belt to be successful, so why not? See your chiropractor first, follow the above suggestions, and give it a go! Your friends will be excited to have you join them!
