A Healthier Way to Exercise

Woman on trail stretching before a run, for ways to improve your body's health with exercise call Chiropractor Office Munster.

One of the most frequently recommended tips to instantly improve your wellbeing and vitality is exercise. Exercise’s benefits are well documented in hundreds, if not thousands, of scientific studies. Yet exercising correctly makes all the difference in hurting or helping. Motus Integrative Health understands your desire to be the healthiest version of yourself. Our chiropractors have a few suggestions that you should consider as you exercise, and how we can help.

Stretching Is Important

Stretching is among the easiest and most effective ways to stay safe while exercising. Warming up and cooling down are essential to protecting your muscles. Stretching helps prepare your muscles before getting to work. Gentle stretches can help improve circulation and prevent muscle cramps. If you’re feeling like you aren’t flexible to stretch safely, our chiropractors can help. Visiting a chiropractor is key to solving any spinal misalignments or joint issues that may make exercising uncomfortable. We can do a thorough physical assessment to ensure you are in physical shape for stretching and exercise. 

More Isn’t Always Better

Some people believe that the more exercise they do, the healthier they’ll be. But pushing yourself too hard can have adverse effects. Don’t bite off more than you can chew: if you’re a beginner at exercising, you’ll want to start small. Don’t attempt to run five miles right off the bat: start by doing a walk and run combo about a mile in length. Many new people to exercising will note soreness in their muscles the next day. A bit of soreness is to be expected as your muscles repair themselves, but being patient with yourself will prevent unnecessary amounts of pain. 

Eat a Well-Balanced Diet

Losing weight is a challenge for many people. Healthy weight loss isn’t about exercising as much as possible while drastically restricting calories. It’s actually best to properly fuel your body with protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats so you have plenty of energy to exercise. Getting these nutrients isn’t always easy, however. Some individuals face dietary restrictions, food sensitivities and other issues that complicate their diets. We offer nutrition counseling to help you improve your diet. We’ll teach you how to make the right choices so you stay healthy and strong. 

Take Care of Injuries

Injuries are common in athletes, whether you’re a professional or a hobbyist. Never ignore an injury. Get your injury checked out by a health professional, even if it appears mild. Many times, the true damage is hidden beneath the surface and can cause complications down the road. Our chiropractors treat sports injuries using a variety of holistic techniques. We will help you get back on your feet and back on track in no time.
