Water’s Edge has started a campaign called “Get There”. The chiropractic practice will focus on assisting anyone who has a New Year’s resolution related to health and exercise. Whether it is to exercise 3 times a week or training for a half marathon, chiropractic care can help anyone get through the tough times.
For those starting this wellness path, having a new year’s resolution is the first step. The second step is keeping the resolution past the end of January. The body is moving in ways that wasn’t before, or the individual may be doing an exercise incorrectly. When this happens, the body quickly reacts with discomfort. Many will take this opportunity to stop working out all together. This is a mistake. How many times have you heard someone say, “I am just not cut out for this,” or “My body does not like to exercise?” Although these are reasonable observations, people generally point to the incorrect cause. The human body is made for moving. It is meant to be exercised.
If a person has been sedentary for too long, the body may have a hard time getting started. Strange movements may also cause stress that misaligns the spine. Weightlifting and other strength exercises are generally very helpful in a weight loss program but may put more stress on your back and body than an individual is accustomed to.
“People tend to over do it during their first time in the gym or when beginning to run for the first few times even when they know this is not a good idea. Their bodies are not used to the exercise,” explains Dr. Patrick Johnson. “Aside from being sore, they may also put a little more pressure on their knees and joints than usual. Although soreness may last only a few days, joint pain and back pain may stay and may deter the individual from continuing their exercise routine. This is where Water’s Edge Chiropractic comes in. We will focus on finding the cause of the pain, and we will get you back on the road to your health goals. We are that little extra support you need during the tough times,” he concluded.
Water’s Edge Chiropractic is a sponsor of the Heritage Half Marathon part of the Esky 150 Celebration. The Chiropractic office is located in 922 Delta Avenue
