Stretching Exercises

Stretching offers several benefits, but it has to be done right. Doing the wrong type of stretching for your needs can lead to injury. Each individual is different and has different requirements for stretching. If you are recovering from a specific health condition or injury, stretching becomes more complex. We highly recommend you consult with a professional chiropractor before you start to engage in any stretching exercises.

Our chiropractors at Urbandale Chiropractic are experts in guiding patients on stretching exercises. Our chiropractors recommended stretching exercises can help improve the flexibility of your muscles that can lead to improving stability. Regular stretching, when done correctly, can help elongate the muscles, which helps in their function.

Strengthening Exercises

You also minimize the risk of injury and cramping when stretching is done correctly. There is also a benefit of reduced stress and muscle tension by stretching. You must have the proper form when doing any strengthening exercise. Doing the right type of strengthening exercise provides strength to the core muscles and the tendons and ligaments. This can prevent injury, help reduce pain, improve posture, and help balance the body's muscles. The balancing is essential to allow for natural movement of the body. For example, strengthening the quadriceps is as important as strengthening the hamstrings on the back of the thighs. Any imbalance can lead to injuries or improper posture.

Our chiropractors can design a strengthening program designed for your needs. This will take into consideration your specific requirements and condition, including your fitness level.  Finding the right balance in strengthening exercise is essential, so you put enough stress on the muscles that they grow but not so much stress that the muscle suffers from an injury or overtraining.
