Being Proactive at Home Can Help Chiropractic Adjustments

Over the years I've found that adjustments make a huge difference in relieving back pain and keeping muscles loose for patients. However patients tend to get better faster if they do a few things at home too!

First of all adjustments that align the spine ans take pressure off of nerves is the #1 factor. Here's why: Muscles are controlled by nerves. If nerves are kept interference free, communication to the muscles is 100% and therefore they'll work like they should.

Second, when the spine and pelvis are in alignment muscles stay in balance. This allows for better mobility of the spine and allows inflammation to dissipate.

With lower back pain I have found that if patients can comfortably stretch their hamstrings and glut muscles it can speed the healing process. Here's why: Everything in the body works together. Hamstrings connect to the gluteus muscles, gluteus to the low back etc... Keeping the whole connection pathway to the low back loose and mobile helps us to restore motion and alignment in the back.
