Year after year, we find ourselves indulging during the holiday season and then we are left to make New Year’s resolutions.
One of the more popular resolutions is to get in shape but very often, February rolls around and this is a real challenge. Motivation may be a factor but for many people, pain often gets in the way of their fitness goals. Our commitment to regular exercise can easily be derailed by nagging ailments and injuries.
Your chiropractor can help you devise some strategies to get back on track!
- Allow your chiropractor to give you a full exam and evaluation. A small injury can become a much bigger problem if you delay seeking treatment. Once the source and cause of your pain has been determined, your chiropractor can create a custom plan for your rehabilitation.
- Stick with your rehabilitation program! As you heal, your treatment program may need to be reviewed and revised. So, be sure to have your progress monitored by your chiropractor. Apply dedication and determination to your quest to recover.
- Learn preventative measures. Your chiropractor can teach you exercises and stretches specifically for you and your activities that can help you avoid re-injury. Learning correct techniques associated with your sport can also reduce the risk of an injury re-occurrence.
Start the New Year with the resolution to reach optimal health. Remember that good health brings more energy and vitality to our lives. Your chiropractor can help you reach your goals!
