Exercise and Chiropractic Care

Cardiovascular and strengthening exercise combined with chiropractic care are important in the management of low back pain. If a chiropractic patient has a history of heart problems, it is important for the patient to consult with their primary care physician to be certain that they can tolerate cardiovascular fitness- promoting activities.

Specific instructions are given by the chiropractic with respect to proper exercise for the patient's condition before beginning any exercise program. In general, a reasonable amount of exercise that is performed daily and utilizes activities that are enjoyed is recommended for patients undergoing chiropractic treatment.

How long you decide to benefit from chiropractic is always up to you. Yet without the strengthening and retraining of underlying muscles and soft tissues, discontinuing care when you feel better can invite a relapse of your original problem. If that should happen, please don't blame chiropractic! Instead, give us a call so we can welcome you back and pick up where we left off.

It's great to see your progress. Let's continue and see the completion of the healing process and a thorough recovery.

One item can help you on your road to health is regular physical activity or exercise. Regular physical activity throughout life is important for maintaining a healthy body, enhancing your chiropractic adjustments. Once your chiropractor has approved a return to regular physical activity do so slowly

Regular physical activity increases muscle and bone strength, increases lean muscle and helps decrease body fat, is the key to any weight loss program, and reduces depression and anxiety. 

To begin a health physically active lifestyle cut down on:

         Watching TV

         Computer Games

         Sitting for more than 30 minutes at a time

Everyday try to walk more and take longer routes during work or around the neighborhood. You could park your car farther away from your destination.

Increase leisure activities like golf, bowling, softball, yard work, stretching, hiking, bicycling, dancing, soccer or other activities that are safe for your condition. Do these activities for 20 minutes at least three times per week.

Begin slow and your life will be filled with energy and health.
