Bennett Clinic Philosophy Regarding Exercise
In the management of back and neck pain it is
important that the patient’s treatment plan include a blend of
chiropractic care with recommended cardiovascular and strengthening
exercise. Virtually all of our treatment plans address this issue.
Consultation with the patient's primary care physician must be done
before the fitness-promoting activities are begun in some cases.
Depending on the patient’s problem and how long it
has been present, oftentimes our treatment plan will include a
combination of chiropractic care with specific targeted exercise
protocols. Exercise, in general, is just a part of leading a healthy
lifestyle. It keeps the muscles in proper tone, promotes circulation,
and even helps with digestion. Exercise, exercise. Even
something as simple as walking can be extremely helpful.
Good, vibrant health simply cannot exist in the absence of some level
of physical activity. And as a rule, “the more the better”!
