Flexibility and range of motion are important elements of your overall fitness. Good flexibility helps you to stay physically active and strong, improve your endurance, and maintain a higher quality of life. To remain flexible, you have to use your entire range of movement and keep moving. A sedentary lifestyle can affect your flexibility, as well as other aspects of your health.
There are multiple things that you can do to improve your flexibility, including regular exercise, yoga, eating a healthy diet, losing weight, and sleeping well. Chiropractic can also help you to increase your flexibility, improving the range of motion in your joints.
Chiropractic and Flexibility
Chiropractic care has been shown to help improve flexibility and range of motion. A study in the Journal of Chiropractic & Manual Therapies showed that chiropractic adjustments provided measurable improvement in cervical range of motion for people who had a loss of normal range of motion between vertebrae in their spine. A study in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that chiropractic treatment helped to increase the range of motion in the neck. These studies show that having regular chiropractic care can help you to increase and maintain flexibility and range of motion.
How Chiropractic Treatment Helps
Chiropractic care improves the range of motion in your joints through chiropractic adjustments and manipulation. It involves treating the joints, bones, and muscles to improve flexibility and restore and improve range of motion. Chiropractic adjustments can also be combined with exercises that your chiropractor can recommend for you to carry out at home. You can see a chiropractor to help improve your range of motion in your spine, neck, and other joints so that you are able to move more freely. Your chiropractor will work on aligning your spine, which has benefits for your whole body. As well as increasing flexibility, it can help to reduce pain and provide other benefits too.
Can Chiropractic Care Help You with Flexibility?
Chiropractic treatment could help anyone to not just improve but also maintain flexibility and range of motion. If you want to know whether it could be of particular benefit to you, you can assess your range of motion. For example, many people can have difficulty moving their neck. If you find it difficult to put your chin to your chest, tilt your head back or turn your head to the left or right, you could benefit from chiropractic adjustments to help improve your range of motion. Be careful when performing these movements to ensure you don’t hurt yourself.
Chiropractors can help with more than chiropractic adjustments and manipulation. They can also help with other changes that will improve your flexibility. Your chiropractor can provide nutritional advice, give you exercises to do at home, and discuss your lifestyle and physical activity levels to help you to take multiple steps to improve your range of motion and flexibility.
