The Importance of Stabilizing Exercises to Hold Adjustments Longer

As your Santa Monica chiropractor, Dr. Dana Laridaen, D.C., I advocate the use of back stabilizing exercises as well as core strength to hold the chiropractic adjustments longer. Subluxations are the underlying cause of many of the problems that we attribute to tight muscles and soreness. Subluxation is when a bone of the spine moves slightly out of place which affects the muscles and nerves. When a chiropractor adjusts you, they are removing these subluxations.  Now, as a chiropractor, I would be negligent if I didn’t give you stabilizing exercises and stretches to help the adjustments hold and last longer. Treatment in my office is a team effort between both you and I.  It is my job to give you the education and exercises to help your condition. If the bones are adjusted but the muscles are not addressed you will feel that you need to be constantly adjusted.

My goal is  for you to live a healthier lifestyle and you will achieve this by strengthening your back and performing specific exercises I demonstrate.  Many people know rehabilitation exercises are to address previously injured areas.  I believe it is equally if not more important to strengthen the back and neck to keep it in alignment and  prevent injuries. It is not that most people don’t want to do stretches and exercises to help their back and neck, I find that most people are just unsure of what to do.  Here at O2 Chiropractic and Wellness I will take the time to go over exercises for your specific needs. All of us work, move around, drive cars, workout etc., which means bones of the spine are going to move out of place slightly. We all have subluxations throughout our spine. It is just up to us to get rid of them and  get aligned to prevent pain and injuries in the future.

If you are ready to take care of your spine and your health or just want more information please contact me today! Once again, you can live without chiropractic care, but you can live a much better life with it!
