One of the most important exercise tips for chiropractic patients is to take steps to keep your body in alignment as you move through your day. Good practices combined with solid exercises creates toned muscles that protect the body and spine from harm.
Your chiropractor will work with you to design an exercise program that is optimal for you. Be sure to follow through with the plan and include these tips in your regular work out to experience the joy of healing from chiropractic care.
In the workplace, check with an ergonomics consultant to ensure proper positioning, especially if you spend most of the day seated or doing repetitive tasks. A comfortable chair reduces muscle strain and prevents injury. Make sure that your feet sit firmly on the floor and that lumbar support is in place. At home, you should have a good mattress and supportive furniture. Before starting any exercises, it’s important to warm up. A series of dynamic moves will boost your heart rate and heat up the muscles that you will be using during your work out. Finally, it is important to target large muscle groups with passive exercises.
Exercise is essential towards maintaining optimal health, fitness, and wellness. For individuals who’ve experienced an injury or condition, pairing up chiropractic care with an appropriate set of physical activities recommended by a medical specialist can ultimately help improve symptoms and maintain overall wellness.
