85226 Chiropractor Provides Exercise Tips To Strengthen The Spine

Although chiropractors are usually seen as a way to resolve a problem they can do much more than that, by showing you how to correctly look after your spine and show you simple and easy to do exercises you can begin to strengthen it to help prevent a reoccurrence of the condition. If you are currently undergoing therapy then ask your consultant about it if not find your nearest Chandler chiropractor and seek their advice.

If you have a current condition with your spine your chiropractor will first work on realigning the discs before he or she shows you how to strengthen it. There are a number of simple exercises that can be done in the privacy of your own home which can help, what they do is work to not only strengthen the spine but also to stabilize it.

Part of the reason back injuries reoccur is due to weakened muscles or ligaments around the area, by working on strengthening these area you can limit or prevent the issue from reoccurring.

If you have access to a pull up or chin up bar this can be a great way to stretch out the spine, a gym ball can also be used as a form of lower back stretching. Other exercises they may suggest could include a hip flexor stretch, a cat back stretch and a bird dog exercise. Names and variation do occur across the profession.

Your chiropractor will take you through the exercises one by one, depending on what he or she feels will suit your personal situation best. It is very important to follow their instructions to the letter as proper form is vital when it comes to the spine.

Do not attempt any back exercise without proper instruction or guidance as you may well end up making the situation worse. And if it any point you feel pain or any discomfort the exercise should be stopped immediately.

A Chandler chiropractor is helpful in the development of exercise programs to improve health and fitness. There are more details about chiropractics available at http://www.cottinghamchiro.com .
