When you are in need of chiropractic care, there is a chance that doing some exercises at home can help to correct the issue as well. We want to educate our chiropractic patients so that they feel comfortable with these exercises that are designed just for them. Doing these corrective chiropractic exercises can help to strengthen and correct their unique chiropractic problems. These chiropractic exercises will be demonstrated and taught to you in our office and you can do them in the comfort of your own home. Studies show that certain exercises can improve the performance of your spine by as much as 30-40 percent. In addition to skeletal issues, connective tissues and muscles can be strained by misalignment and overuse. There are specific exercises and stretches you can do to help your body stay balanced and achieve better health throughout your life.
After a chiropractic alignment, the misalignment of your back, tendons, and connective tissue can revert back to the way they were when they were causing you pain. It is important to continue the chiropractic exercises so that you can strengthen your spine and train it back to proper alignment.
Follow Your Corrective Exercises
Many people think of corrective exercises and stretches as a cherry on top of the sundae. In reality, you can think of corrective exercises as the dish that holds the sundae. If you were given a scoop of ice cream and told to hold it in your hand, it would remain solid for a few minutes before it melted all over the floor. A chiropractic adjustment is like a scoop of ice cream. It aligns your spine for some time, but if you don’t have something to contain it, your spine is going to revert back to being misaligned because the muscles and tendons are pulling it out of alignment.
Doing your chiropractor-suggested exercises at home will help to retrain your spine to stay in alignment after your adjustment.
