Generally, whenever a patient receives treatment of any sort, they want to enjoy the benefits of said treatment for as long as possible, if not in perpetuity. But, the sobering fact about your spine, your neck, and your back is that they all go through a tremendous amount of wear and tear on a daily basis.
Depending on what you do for a living, whether that means staring at a computer all day at an odd angle while sitting in an uncomfortable, less-than-accommodating chair, or lifting heavy objects in an awkward fashion, or even staying suspended in an unnatural position. Even our pursuits outside of work take a toll on our bodies -- things like wakeboarding, playing hoops, even gardening.
So, Vital Energy Wellness and Chiropractic Center Inc thought it would be a great idea to go over some ways that you can extend the life of your chiropractic treatment, whether that be a spinal correction, a chiropractic adjustment, corrective exercise, or any other service we offer.
Incorporating a rigorous stretching routine will extend the life of your chiropractic care benefits. If you can set aside 30-60 minutes to get some deep stretching -- incorporating yoga-like poses if you're able -- either at the beginning or the end of the day (or even both!), you'll be doing your body a great service.
We think of water for the skin benefits as well as the fact that we need it right after exercise. But water is also key for lubricating the body, especially your joints and discs. Whatever you weigh, try to drink half that in ounces of water (160 pounds = 80 oz of H2O).
Practice Good Posture
Making sure that you keep good posture is key for your back, your spine, and your neck. Watch out for cheap work chairs -- see if you can invest in something more ergonomic, something designed to take care of your back, spine, and neck.
Of course, the best way to experience amazing spine health and wellness is to stay on top of it, just like you should do with cardio, meditation, even yoga. Chiropractic Care is meant to be a continuous process, not just a one-off treatment. That's why Vital Energy makes our services easily available and affordable for just about any budget.
