Stretching and decompression are believed to be just as important as exercise when it comes to body maintenance and overall wellness is concerned.
If you're simply just lifting weights and not giving your body a good stretch afterwards, you're likely dealing with built-up tension that could develop into some serious health conditions, not to mention create significant obstacles in you achieving your health goals.
Having a good plan when it comes to stretching is paramount to any health and wellness plan.
First, incorporate some yoga into your life. Take a class -- it makes a HUGE difference having to sit in a class for an hour or more, multiple times per week.
Next, make sure you take about 20-45 minutes after every workout in order to stretch, that way you're helping your body recover from the abuse you just put it through.
Staying hydrated will also help you with your range of motion, not to mention ensure your body is functioning properly throughout the day.
Stretch multiple times per week for best results. Stay consistent with your stretch routine to experience maximum benefits. And contact Barton Chiropractic Clinic today to learn about how our treatments go hand-in-hand with an effective health and wellness protocol.

When it comes to exercise, there are more than a few activities out there that will wreak havoc on your joints, especially your knees and your ankles, not to mention your lower back.
Below, Barton Chiropractic Clinic goes over a few low impact workout ideas that will help your body recover from the day-to-day grind.
First, try walking, which is a great low impact activity, especially if you can find a way to walk uphill.
Hiking is another great low impact workout that will also count as active recovery. Depending on the incline, this should be a fantastic workout for your quads, your glutes, your feet, and your core. Your joints and your back will also not have to take such a big role in the strain, either.
Swimming is another fantastic low-impact workout that will ensure your joints face as little impact as possible. Swimming represents a fantastic way to keep your body in shape without putting it through a bunch of nonsense.

When you get into the gym your body undergoes a ton of strain and tension and you sculpt your body into what you want it to be. For every hour you spend lifting weights, it's a good idea to counteract this with a session with your local chiropractor, especially as we begin to correct subluxation and enhance your posture, which will make you more effective in the weight room.
As you begin to increase the weight with powerlifting, it's important to double down on your active recovery routine, which should include yoga and chiropractic treatment.
Chiropractic treatment will help correct your spine, which will help your body and mind communicate more effectively, help you sleep more regularly, and improve your GI functionality.
