All About Spinal Hygiene
It is evident in the literature that every joint in the body must go through full range of motion every 24 hours or arthritis is developing. Getting Chiropractic care helps to break up scar tissue to create motion where it is limited but it is really not practical to get adjusted every day the rest of your life. This is where spinal hygiene comes in.
Spinal hygiene exercises are not the same as aerobic or resistance exercise. Those types of exercise are also very important. Spinal hygiene exercises create movement in the joints that are able to move. The adjustments help those joints that are not able to move freely. By doing both, adjustments and spinal hygiene, you are able to increase the range of motion in your spine. This will improve the function of your body by improving the function of your nerve system.
