Stretching is an excellent complement to chiropractic care. When combined with simple stretches and low-impact exercises, chiropractic patients often find that their injuries heal faster, their pain is reduced, and they simply feel better. As a natural part of the aging process, our muscles begin to tighten. Inhibited range of motion and joint stiffness make normal daily activities more difficult, however, everyday life shouldn’t come to a standstill. Stretching regularly can help the body regain lost flexibility. The more stretching, the more muscles will get used to those movements, thus, an improved range of motion will start to be seen, along with better blood circulation, muscle tension relief, improved posture, more energy, and better sleep.
The wonderful thing about stretching is that you can do it just about anywhere when you have time.
Moreover, you do not need any fancy weights or machines to get moving. And because you are only using your body weight, the risk of injury is minimized. Stretching is important in order to keep your muscle tissue primed and ready to tackle the day. To schedule an appointment for chiropractic care, please call 860-621-2225. Our clinic is located at 200 Queen Street, Southington.
P.S. A chiropractor can provide a list of stretches that are suitable for every patients specific situation.
