What Should You Do After Seeing A Chiropractor

Chiropractors are experienced allied health professionals who use a variety of techniques known as adjustments. The main goal for a chiropractor is to help alleviate symptoms and enhance bodily function of patients to improve their overall health. Most people seek Chiropractic care to prioritise their health and wellbeing.

What Should You Do After A Chiropractic Appointment?

1. Increase Water Intake

Drinking plenty of water 24 hours after your appointment is a great way to stay hydrated and flush out any toxins within the system. Water is also a great wat of helping your bodies muscles and joints to relax!

2. Walking!

Walking is a great tool to help the body limber up after a session. Using the new and improved mobility helps you to maintain the benefits for longer. As they say “use it or lose it!”.

3. Relax!

Relaxing after your appointment is beneficial to ensure your mind and body remain relaxed and destressed.

Things To Avoid After A Chiropractic Appointment!

1. Heavy Lifting

Chiropractic Care mobilises joints meaning that compression type exercise can once again compress the joints. Usually after adjustments that can lead to pain and increased stress overall to the bodies musculoskeletal system.

2. Tummy Sleeping

Sleeping on your stomach adds unneeded pressure and strain on the joints throughout the spine and creates muscle tension throughout. This is because the body is not set in a neutral position such as on your back or side and can cause problems such as neck and back pain.

3. Over-Working

Over working is always something difficult to avoid especially if it is the nature of the job. It is always recommended that prolonged sitting be avoided as it tends to aggravate areas such as the neck and lower back. Heavy lifting at job sites and wearing heavy tool bags for long periods can also cause ongoing issues and affect the recovery of your condition or complaint at hand.
