How Stretching Benefits your Chiropractic Care
The spine is held in place by the surrounding muscles and ligaments. It is important, as we age, to keep muscles as flexible as possible since they have a tendency to tighten over the years.
The tightening of muscles cause the body to no longer maintain symmetry. This can be seen in the raise of one side of the body. When stretching is used alongside chiropractic, the muscles within the body, specifically surrounding the spine, relax and begin to align with the adjustments made by the chiropractor.
Stretching alongside chiropractic care can also improve the range of motion within the body as well as flexibility. When you are more flexible, you are less likely to be injured as long as you continue to listen to your body and understand your limits.
Muscles are where we hold our stress, so if you are adding stretching into your routine, you are combatting your stress effectively!
