In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, let’s talk about two amazing ways to show your body some love – yoga and chiropractic care. Most of us know that these forms of self care are good for the mind and body. But did you know how helpful yoga and chiropractic care can be when you pair them together?
Some benefits of yoga include: strength, flexibility, lower blood pressure, and decreased stress levels
Some benefits of chiropractic care include: pain relief, increased mobility, spinal alignment, injury healing assistance
Yoga and chiropractic care compliment each other wonderfully. Using one to supplement the other is a great way to take care of your body, especially if suffering from injury. The strength and flexibility that yoga brings to the body can increase its responsiveness to chiropractic care and healing.
The nervous system improvement, misalignment correction, and mobility that chiropractic care offers can help make your body less susceptible to tension and injury. As chiropractic work aligns the spine and balances the body, yoga helps strengthen the muscles surrounding the spine to support it.
Yoga is extremely beneficial for addressing many of the complaints that bring patients into our office (neck, back, and joints). When you gift your body with yoga, your chiropractor can do more effective and in-depth work. Working with both a yoga instructor and your chiropractor (experts on the body) can help deepen your awareness of how you hold and use your body.
We encourage you to throw on a yoga video, attend a class, or join a group that does yoga. The social aspect will add to your sense of community and your long-term motivation to improve and learn from others. Be sure to supplement your self care schedule with regular chiropractic adjustments!
