Chiropractic with a Core Focus Could Be a Find
By Sandy Schroeder
Want to run faster, swim more, and lead the way on the green? Chiropractic care with an emphasis on your core muscles could be the answer.
Harvard Health tells us a strong, flexible core can be the key to everything we want to do. When your core muscles are stronger, you are less likely to have lower back pain, and more likely to be out playing every weekend. Your balance may improve and your body’s ability to reach, turn and bend may follow as you lead the way at work and power through projects at home.
The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you can help you strengthen your body and your core as you relieve pain and explore wellness. The core includes your side, back, pelvis and buttock muscles that connect your upper and lower back. When these muscles work well, everything you do may seem easier.
Seeing Your Chiropractor
When you come in, your chiropractor will assess your spinal health and your body strength, as you discuss your normal schedule and your health history.
A gentle, targeted spinal adjustment may relieve any pain that you have and create a fresh sense of wellness with more energy and alertness.
Wellness is an individual thing; as you assess your results, you can choose your wellness path. A 15-minute adjustment may be the right way to keep you at your peak, and help you work on your core strength. With the approval of your doctor and your chiropractor, you may choose a 15-minute core exercise routine that keeps you strong, toned and flexible. Covering lifts, planks and stretches, your routine can be done wherever you are, at home, or at work.
- Office workout – Use a counter or desk to support your weight and a mat. Do a front plank leaning forward on the desk, and an abdominal contraction, while lying flat on the mat, followed by a hip lift. (From Harvard Health)
- Hip lift – Lie on your back with knees bent. Push your pelvis and tailbone down, tighten core muscles, push lower back into mat. Hold and slowly lift midsection off the ground, using legs, arms and shoulders for balance. Hold for 10 seconds. Repeat five times. (From apmhealh.com)
