Need a Fitness Upgrade? See Your Chiropractor
By Sandy Schroeder
As summer rolls forward, you may wish you were stronger, faster or more powerful on the court, or on your daily run. It’s easy to lose fitness when work and family demands fill up the day, but there are some ways to make everything work.
Stop by The Joint Chiropractic and meet your new wellness coach. The Joint’s licensed chiropractors help everyone from teens to seniors get fit and stay fit` as they shed pain and enhance their wellness.
You will find out how simple it can be when you stop by. Nationwide, The Joint has more than 400 wellness clinics ready to help. Clinics are open evenings and weekends, and walk-in visits are welcome.
How It Works
Your chiropractor can assess your fitness and help you ease aches and pains as you put together the best fitness plan.
A gentle targeted spinal adjustment can provide far-reaching pain relief and a fresh sense of well-being with more energy, less stress and better sleep. A 15-minute weekly spinal adjustment can keep the benefits coming as a new fitness plan takes shape.
The Workout Menu
Here are some of the best choices.
- Cardio workouts
- Aerobic routines
- Strength and power training
The results can help you strengthen muscles, improve balance, slow bone loss, and improve range of motion. They can help you fight back pain, heart disease, arthritis, and type 2 diabetes, too.
Zeroing in On the Details
As you look closer at your schedule, you may want to start earlier or come in later to make room for morning walks or afternoon workouts.
On the job, you may want to build short fitness breaks into the morning, lunch break, and afternoon. If you work an eight-hour day, taking five-minute breaks each hour to stretch or walk will give you another 40 minutes of daily exercise.
At the same time, you may want to eat healthier, reduce stress with breathing exercises or meditation, and shorten your day a little to allow for some outdoor activities with your family. Backyard soccer practice, shooting hoops or biking to the park will keep the whole family in shape.
I have watched many families regain their fitness with the help of their chiropractors. Often they came in to relieve neck, back or knee pain. Then they discovered how much more chiropractic assistance could do. Seniors in the family found relief from sciatic nerve pain and arthritis. Teens benefitted from posture pointers to shed a digital slouch, and spouses welcomed some extra stress relief.
