Our Chiropractic office is available for overseeing chiropractic stretching & strengthening exercises.
If you suffer from chronic pain, stiff ligaments, tight muscles, or frequent injuries, the Drs. of Advanced Pain Recovery Center may prescribe stretching and strengthening exercises on top of any therapies you may need.
These exercises can play a vital role in helping you regain control of your body, improve your range of motion, and perhaps enjoy a more pain-free lifestyle. Here's a look at some of the remarkable ways stretching and strengthening exercises can boost your quality of life, along with some specific examples of exercises the doctors may recommend.
The Value of Stretching and Strengthening Your Body
Exercise, in general, has shown some important benefits for individuals struggling with injuries, chronic pain, and other musculoskeletal problems. For instance, aerobic exercise enhances blood circulation and fluid drainage, which can help control swelling and feed more healing oxygen to the tissues.
Stretching and strengthening exercises promise some special benefits of their own. Stretches can release pent-up muscle tension and limber up the tissues to ease muscle spasms, making the everyday motion more comfortable, and reduce your injury risk. Strengthening also reduces injury risk by granting extra stability to the key muscle groups that maintain your posture, symmetry, and balance.
Stretching Exercises to Keep Your Tissues Flexible
The doctors of Advanced Pain Recovery Center may evaluate your current range of motion and medical status before prescribing stretching exercises. Common stretches that may help to manage pain and improve flexibility include:
- Shoulder rolls to relax the tissues connecting your shoulders to your neck
Strengthening Exercises to Support Your Musculoskeletal System
Strengthening exercises typically target the muscle groups responsible for maintaining musculoskeletal alignment. The doctors may recommend a routine that includes:
- Chin tucks, which strengthen the muscles that support your head
Exercises may be prescribed for you based on your current level of wellness and ability. Discuss this with your doctor.
