Many people who seek chiropractic care can benefit from quality stretching and exercise. Utilizing exercise with chiropractic care can help improve your range of motion and flexibility even more. Living a pain-free lifestyle can be achieved with low-impact exercises and working with a licensed chiropractor.
Chiropractic alone can help limit your pain, but many patients also seek holistic healing and low-impact exercises to help them continue to improve in all aspects.
Elevate Wellness wants to help you gain more motion and work on building up your muscles without injuring you. Chiropractic is safe and a noninvasive way to help improve your body. Avoid surgery or strong medications by combining exercise with chiropractic care.
Pool Exercises For Bad Joints
If you are just beginning chiropractic treatment, pool exercises may help limit your pain and give you the ease of moving while in the water. Pool exercise with chiropractic care can help you build muscle and get your heart pumping without being so hard on your joints.
Some common pool exercises that can help limit pain include:
- Walking in shallow water and doing lunges
- Jogging in place
- Standing knee lifts
- Hip kicking
- Pool planking
Improve Your Motion And Flexibility
More and more people lose flexibility from sitting at a desk, bad posture, text neck, or other sedentary days. If you don’t practice flexibility stretches and move your body daily, you can lose flexibility and range of motion earlier than you should.
Even stretching before you begin exercising can help limber your joints and prevent injury during exercise. Doing stretches before hard exercise and stretches after chiropractic treatment will help limit your pain and muscle tension. Static and dynamic stretches can help you in multiple ways when you are seeking chiropractic treatment including limiting back pain, improving your posture, and boosting your mood.
Some flexibility exercises that you can combine with chiropractic care include:
- Standing hamstring stretch
- Triceps stretches
- Frog stretch
- Butterfly stretch
- Knee to chest stretch
- Seated rotational stretch
Strengthen Bones And Muscles
When your spine is aligned your bones and muscles work better together and become stronger. When bones function properly, you take away extra stress and discomfort. Strong bones and muscles can help you feel younger and may even help limit pain in certain areas.
Chiropractic care can help your muscles function more systematically and prevent muscle injury. Aligning bones and joints help your brain be able to send signals to them effectively and helps build them up. Chiropractic can help with diseases like osteoporosis, musculoskeletal deformations, low blood cell counts, and more that can be life-altering.
Boost Your Mood And Self-Esteem
Regular exercise with chiropractic care can help improve your mood and help with mental health as well as physical health. Moving your body in any way can help release endorphins, improve your sleep, and help you recover faster from illness. All of these benefits can make life much more enjoyable and help you feel productive.
Chiropractic adjustments can also release endorphins from aligning your spine. These endorphins can come from pain relieving or reducing inflammation. Combining exercise with chiropractic care will help boost your self-confidence and energy levels throughout the day and give you a better quality of life for years to come.
