Chiropractic And Flexibility
Finding Joy in the Journey
The reason you should work on improving your range of movement is because poor flexibility affects your strength, endurance, and overall quality of life. You can improve flexibility in number of ways including:
Eating Healthy Diet
Getting Enough Sleep (Your Joints And Muscles Need Enough Rest)
Visiting A Chiropractor
Does Chiropractic Really Help?
Chiropractic aims to improve your flexibility in a completely natural manner without medications and usage of “fishy” products that promise miraculous results. It’s a holistic approach towards more flexible you.
This isn’t the only study which confirmed the beneficial effects of chiropractic on flexibility. The study whose results were published in the Journal of Chiropractic and Manual Therapies revealed that chiropractic treatment provided measurable improvement in range of motion in 60 participants who were part of this research.
What Does Chiropractor Do To Improve Flexibility?
Chiropractic care involves spinal adjustments and manipulations to other parts of one’s body to adjust the joints, bones and muscles in order to relieve the pain, improve flexibility, and restore range of motion. The adjustments can be performed manually or with various techniques such as electrical stimulation, trigger point therapy, ultrasound etc. Your chiropractor can also recommend exercises you should do to improve your range of motion successfully.
Test Your Flexibility
Do you need chiropractic care to improve your range of movement? The best way to find out is to perform the following test exercises to move your neck in various motions:
Extension: tilt your head back to look at the ceiling (60-80 degrees)
Flexion: move your head forward and try to touch chest with your chin (40-60 degrees)
Rotation: turn your head to the left and right making sure chin is in line with shoulders (60-80 degrees)
Lateral bending: bend the head to bring right or left ear to your right or left shoulder (45 degrees)
NOTE: if you feel like your neck is inflexible or stiff while trying to perform these movements, don’t force it! Making movements that are beyond your range of motion can lead to injury. Instead, schedule an appointment at chiropractor’s office. Our Chiropractor in Melbourne, Richmond and Kew can help improve range of motion and prevent further degeneration.
