Dr. Michael Papa: Your Palm Beach Gardens Chiropractor, Jupiter Chiropractor, and Port St Lucie Chiropractor for Spinal Health
The health of your spine has the ability to positively or negatively affect your overall health and well-being. It literally holds your body together and upright, helps you walk and stand properly, affects your nervous and musculature system, and so much more. When your spine is misaligned and is not functioning at its best, it can make for some painful days.
Unfortunately, there are several things that can cause your spine to not function properly. Some common issues are whiplash and back pain caused by auto accidents. Fortunately, there are ways to improve your spinal health, and Papa Chiropractic and Physical Therapy is here to help you do just that. Below are a few ways in which you can get started.
Exercise strengthens muscles. Strong muscles help to hold the bones and joints in place and support them. With regular exercise, you can experience great spinal benefits.
For those who suffer from whiplash or have been in auto accidents, be sure you check with your doctor first before starting any new exercise programs.
Improve Your Posture
Standing tall and upright helps support your spine, which can be accomplished by exercising. As you exercise and strengthen your muscles, they help to promote a strong posture.
In addition to exercising, be sure you check in with yourself regularly. Set a reminder on your phone to go off every 30 minutes or every hour to remind yourself to check your posture. Over time, good posture can become second nature for you.
Tight muscles can make some movements difficult, meaning that other parts of your body overcompensate. Stretching can help relieve this tightness so that your body works as it should.
Seek Professional Help
The previous steps can go a long way towards keeping your spine healthy, but there are times it is necessary to seek a chiropractor for help. Visiting a chiropractor can help relieve pain and muscle tension in the back, keep the spine aligned, and improve the overall wellness of your spine.
