New year new injury?
A common New Year's resolution is to begin exercising more. As we move in the year 2020, I have noticed that several of my patients have decided to go from little or no exercise to very intense exercise training programs. These people then end up in my office injured seeking my chiropractic services.
This brought to my attention an important point that I think people forget about. Part of being strong and mighty is also respecting your body and limitations of matter. I am a big supporter of exercise with my patients. Generally speaking, the more they can keep moving, the better. Peak performance, trying to reach goals in fitness to maximize a person's physical capacity and being a hard worker are all good things. And while these things can be done at any age, people's well-intentioned ambitions can blow up in their face landing them at the chiropractor or worse orthopedist if they move faster than there body will allow. These injuries occur because the body is being shocked into a state it is not accustomed to.
It's a good idea to build up gradually and incrementally to reach your fitness goals. I can recommend personal trainers that can help you start working out without hurting yourself. I'm always here to help my patients or a new patient who may have injured themselves.
