Yoga complements chiropractic care

Yoga complements chiropractic care

As you know, Sportscare Center added yoga therapy to its services in February 2015. Yoga complements your current athletic training by bettering balance, enhancing endurance, increasing flexibility, and building strength. Anecdotally, people who’ve taken the Re-Energize class report increased strength and weight loss. People who’ve taken the Relax class tell us they sleep like a log after taking the class.

Yoga also fits well into a wellness lifestyle. How many times have you heard “eat healthier and move more” from your doctor, your trainer, your chiropractor? Each person is promoting two things you can do immediately to improve your health and quality of life. Yoga is a great way to enhance wellness and meet the “move more” requirement.

How yoga promotes ongoing wellness:

  • Encourages regular exercise
    Decreases anxiety through breathing exercises
    Oxygenates tissues
    Strengthens the pulmonary system, e.g., lungs and diaphragm.

How yoga complements chiropractic care

If you have been a Sportscare Center patient for long, you know that chiropractic care improves wellness by repairing skeletal misalignments, which improves communications between the nervous system and other body systems, and ultimately, optimizes the body’s ability to function.

Yoga supports chiropractic care by improving posture, building strength, and stretching muscles.

Additionally, some yoga poses address physical issues by alleviating pressure around vertebra. Here are a few:

Seated Forward Bend or Paschimottanasana
