Why Exercise and Chiropractic Make a Great New Year's Resolution

Published January 19th, 2021 by Dr. Hoder

If you’ve made exercise your New Year’s resolution, you’ve already made the first step toward improving your health by setting a goal. But taking care of your body requires a routine that takes a lot of effort, time, and commitment. Here’s why you should start with exercise and chiropractic care to get your routine going.   

The Benefits of Exercise

Most people know that exercise is good for the body, but aren’t fully aware of the benefits. Exercise keeps the body in better condition as a whole. It tones and tightens muscles, improves overall range of motion and flexibility, and burns fat. Exercise can also decrease the risk of diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and other significant heart issues. Another helpful benefit for the body is weight loss. As the body loses excess weight, it reduces joint pain and boosts overall health. 

Chiropractic Care Benefits

The benefits of exercise are widely understood but the benefits of chiropractic care? Not so much. Chiropractors are known as back doctors that provide pain relief to the back and neck, but chiropractic is capable of so much more! Our chiropractors return the spine to proper alignment, which often reduces pain in the neck, back, joints, hips, and other parts of the body. Our patients have also reported a reduction in headaches, increased energy, and a boost to the immune system. When you get regular chiropractic care, you can enjoy an overall sense of well-being as your health improves. 

Combine Exercise and Chiropractic Care

Both exercise and chiropractic care ultimately maintenance routines and they work particularly well when mixed together. When you combine the two, you get the best of both worlds. You may find that as pain is relieved in the body, your stability and strength increases. And with the lowered risk of disease that comes with exercise also comes a boosted immune system from chiropractic care, so you are in for a healthier body for the long-term.
