Adjustments, Stretching, and Exercises: What They Help With
Techniques For Chiropractic Care
In conjunction with chiropractic adjustments, stretching exercises allow proper motion in the spine and prepare muscles for activity. Stretching before and after a workout can prevent muscle strains and soreness and help prevent subluxations and health problems. Stretching exercises will help improve your flexibility and strengthen muscles.
Research published by Dr. Roger Sperry, a medical doctor who won the Nobel Prize for Brain Research, tells us that 90% of the stimulation and nutrition to the brain is generated by the movement of the spine1.
