ARE YOU A WEEKEND WARRIOR? CHIROPRACTIC CAN HELP THAT

Doylestown Chiropractor Helps Weekend Warriors

More and more people are recognizing that exercise is a key factor for achieving a long, healthy life, and that’s a good thing. However, the demands of a job and family, among other responsibilities, make it hard for people to exercise as much as they’d like to. This results in the “weekend warrior” syndrome, where people try to make up for a week’s worth of inactivity by exercising vigorously on the weekends. Some exercise is always better than none, so in theory there’s nothing wrong with getting your exercise even two days a week. However, the reality is that some people overdo the weekend exercise, and this can be a problem, especially as the years go on. Waking up on Saturday morning and running five miles, or playing in a fast-paced basketball or tennis game, can sometimes result in injuries, especially if you don’t stretch properly before the workout.

The good news is that chiropractic care can help you recover from many of these weekend athlete injuries. Chiropractic adjustment returns spinal segments to their normal mobility. Aided by massage therapy to help the supportive tissues (muscles, tendons, & ligaments), chiropractic physicians allow the injured areas to heal and return to normal function. Along with some rest to help the healing process, weekend athletes will usually be able to return to their activities in a short time. A good Doylestown chiropractor will also be able to show you better strategies for exercise and stretching, so that you avoid these kinds of injuries in the future.
