Exercise

Cardiovascular and strengthening exercises combined with chiropractic care are important in the management of pain syndromes. If a chiropractic patient has a history of heart problems, it is important for the patient to consult with their Primary Care Physician to be certain they can tolerate cardiovascular fitness activities.

Specific instructions are given by the chiropractor with respect to proper exercise for the patient’s condition before beginning any exercises. Overall, and when combined with chiropractic care, exercise helps promote proper digestion, keeps the muscles in proper tone, and promotes better circulation. Walking around the block at least once or twice a day is a convenient and popular activity. Also, many forms of work and/or household tasks can function as an exercise program. The important point is to get moving!
