THE ROAD TO AN OPTIMAL LIFE BEGINS WITH OPTIMAL HEALTH

Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope

Here are some excellent back strengthening exercises to help rehabilitate & strengthen your spinal muscles.

First of all a 20 to 30 min Cardio-Vascular warm-up is imperative. Rowing, biking, jump-rope, swimming, elliptical are all good options.

Next, begin with EXTENSOR muscle work & strengthening. These are the muscles (triceps, latts, quads, buttock & back) that help us stand up straight, with straight arms & legs.

It is always best, whenever possible, to do 'cross-crawl' exercises. This means opposite arm & leg engagement. For example, imagine throwing a javelin - your eyes will be on the hand in extension & you will be standing on the opposite leg. We are designed this way & it is the best way to exercise.

Finally, wind down w/ flexor muscle exercise - only now do you do any biceps, pect & ab work! And finish w/ a few minutes of stretching.

Plan routine work-outs 3 to 4 times a week. Keep a well aligned spine with chiropractic adjustments & enjoy a long & healthy life!

If you haven't fully utilized your health care insurance plan, if you do not use this month to cash in, your deductibles can reset and any visit or consultation allowances will also reset -- usually without rolling over.
