Even if you’re not into swimming with sharks, you should be engaged in a regular routine that maintains and enhances your flexibility and mobility. Or at least you should be if you want to enjoy the full range of motion your body deserves. We here at Sandstone Chiropractic can help.
Range of Motion Explained
Range of motion refers to the level of mobility of the joints in your body, measured in degrees of circle. Healthy folks typically have joints that maintain a normal range of motion that lets them move freely, carry on daily activities and live life with pizzazz.
Range of motion and flexibility, however, can be impaired by a number of factors. These include:
- Poor posture
- Lack of movement
- Spinal issues
To maintain mobility and let your body bend, twist or otherwise the full range of motion for which it was designed, it’s often necessary to take action.
What Actions to Take
Stretching exercises. A number of passive and active range of motion exercises can strengthen your joints and muscles while reducing pain. Our Sandstone chiropractors can show you specific movements that can work for you, based on your individual needs.
Regular chiropractic care. Chiropractic care helps keep your neck, joints and limbs mobile and flexible. We can work with you to restore your optimum range of motion, often healing chronic ailments and addressing pain issues along the way.
The overall purpose of chiropractic care is to help maintain and retain your health, regardless of your age. If that sounds good to you, contact our Magnolia or Montgomery clinic today.
