Have you ever observed your dog or cat as soon as they awake, the initial thing that they do is stretch? Then why is it when we awaken, we just start up and hit the ground running? Take a moment and think about what that action does to our muscles and joints. Stretching whether it is our first activity in the morning, after sitting at our computers for a prolonged period of time, or after a long drive to work is essential for good health. It elongates muscles, increases blood flow to the tissue, and prevents injuries and muscle splitting.
There is something gratifying when your body gets the love it requires, in particular, if we are consistent with it. In addition to chiropractic care, stretching and exercise help keep your body remain in balance and alignment. For a few people, becoming active is not an issue and others simply do not enjoy it. Nonetheless, when you get into a regular schedule, it can be the most beneficial aspect of your life.
