Experience Optimum Wellbeing

When prescribed by a qualified professional, exercise can prevent ill health, boost the wellness of the body’s systems (cardiovascular, muscular, skeletal and nervous systems), treat illness and assist rehabilitation and recovery from illness.

We don’t recommend that you start an exercise program before consulting with our chiropractors. There are some simple ways to make sure that your body is ready for exercise:

faviconWarm Up

Low-intensity activity increases the temperature in your body, allowing muscles to better contract and coordinate with greater amounts of blood and oxygen.

faviconStretch

Stretching

Make sure to warm up, stretch and cool down!

Stretching lengthens the tendons and muscles, increasing range of motion and flexibility. It also reduces muscle tension, improves circulation and allows for easier movement. You must be careful to warm up first, though, as stretching cold muscles is of little value and can cause injury.

There are important areas of the body that are important to stretch:

  1. Calves
  2. Groin
  3. Hamstrings
  4. Neck
  5. Quadriceps
  6. Trunk

faviconCool Down

Activity levels should be gradually decreased with a series of stretches that allow the body to recover. A cool down period may reduce fatigue, muscle soreness and prevent the pooling of blood in the limbs that can cause fainting or dizziness and improve the recovery of tissues by removing waste products.
