We don't like to say "exercise", because few people really like to exercise. We like to use the term "physical activity". Remember in school when you would go outside for "physical education?" How much education did you really ever get? If they called it exercise class, nobody would have shown up.
Cardiovascular conditioning and musculoskeletal balance training, combined with chiropractic care are important in the management of back, pelvic, hip and spine pain.
If a chiropractic patient has a history of heart problems, it is important for the patient to consult with their Cardiologist to be certain they can tolerate cardiovascular fitness activities.
We work one on one with you correcting any muscle weakness or imbalance, with individually prescribed progressive treatment programs. We provide simple strengthening activities that can be performed at home or at work, in order to speed up your healing or strengthening process.
It is important to elevate your heart rate above the resting level for a minimum of 30 minutes a day. Your resting heart rate is your heart rate when you are sitting down, not doing anything.
When you elevate your heart rate, you are pumping blood to your arms and legs, improving circulation, oxygenating organs and muscles and exercising your heart, lungs and blood vessels. This also improves varicose veins and leg cramps. A simple walk is all it takes to increase cardiovascular activity and begin your journey back to health.
When combined with chiropractic care, physical activity helps promote proper digestion, keeps the muscles in proper tone, and promotes better circulation. A daily walk around the block is a good start if you haven't been doing any constant activities. Remember the old adage, "move it or lose it?" Your muscles and your body atrophy with lack of activity.
We will customize a physical activity plan specifically for your needs, that will coincide with your chiropractic care plan, when you come into the office. So don't delay, the time to start is now.
