Chiropractic care and yoga have become more and more popular over the last several years. Yoga Practice combined with the care of a competent chiropractor can help promote optimal health and well-being. When done the right way, yoga can reduce blood sugar levels and stress, increase endurance, balance, and flexibility, and strengthen your muscles and joints. Chiropractic care corrects misalignments, promotes better joint mobility, and improves the health of the nervous system, and that’s just the start!
How Does Yoga Therapy work?
It works through yoga postures, breathing exercises, meditation, and guided imagery to improve mental and physical health. The holistic focus of yoga therapy encourages the integration of mind, body, and spirit.
Yoga promotes healing.
Practicing yoga before chiropractic care helps your muscles warm-up and clears your mind. In that case, chiropractors are able to treat your issues as you will already be relaxed upon arrival. In short, yoga helps your body heal.
Yoga, like chiropractic care, increases mobility and range of motion.
If you are suffering from a specific deep-rooted condition or from a major injury, chiropractic care may require more time to “prep” your body before treating the injury or solving the issue. This can be frustrating for patients who want their problems solved immediately. With that being said, yoga can increase flexibility and range of motion, which saves work for the chiropractor. Both yoga and chiropractic care are beneficial for those suffering from joint, hip, back, or neck pain. The more effort you put in outside of the chiropractor’s office, the more in-depth work we can do during your visit.
Going Hand in Hand: Yoga and Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care is a safe and effective practice when carried out by a skilled practitioner. It involves spinal manipulation to realign the spine in a more optimal way in relation to the rest of the body.
Yoga therapy, coupled with chiropractic care, can help prevent future injury through increased awareness of spinal alignment, more confident balance, and improved ease of movement—all of which create a holistic program for vibrant health.
