We all want to be injury-free when doing our exercise programs. Of course, stuff happens, but several critical action steps will go far toward preventing exercise- and sports-related injuries. Among these preventive measures: stretching is key. Importantly, regular chiropractic care helps us get the most out of our stretching activities and also avoid injuries that may be associated with the act itself.
In order for stretching to be effective, the joints at either end of the muscle being stretched need to freely move. With respect to the quadriceps and hamstring muscles, those joints are the pelvis, hip joint, and knee. By detecting and correcting limitations of joint motion in the low back and sacroiliac joints, regular chiropractic care helps ensure maximum mobility in the pelvis and hips, and by extension, the knees.
By addressing these sources of potential mechanical dysfunction, regular chiropractic care helps us stretch consistently, obtain necessary vigorous exercise, and increase our overall levels of health and wellness.
