Paying Attention to Your Body
| We all want to have fun. We want to work hard and play hard, and we want to go all out.
It's important, though, when playing sports or exercising, to pay attention to the feedback our body is giving us. If we ignore these friendly messages, some not-so-pleasant things might happen. And, when things go wrong physically, there might be significant recovery time involved.
Paying attention can save a lot of downtime.
Important warning signs include feeling faint, experiencing shortness of breath, and even intense muscle pain and soreness. Any of these signals mean you're doing too much, working too hard, or working beyond your current physical capacity.
Back off a little. Slow down. Say that's enough for the day and be able to go out there again tomorrow.
Your chiropractor can help you design fun and challenging exercise routines. He or she is able to recommend sports, stretches, and activities that match-up with your interests and plans. The goal, as always, is to be healthy, active, and well.
Before treatment by Dr. Baxter, I suffered severe sciatica and a number of other issues with my back. Because of his expertise (and gentle treatment) I'm now able to walk and do my housework without pain. He's a caring doctor who is interested in his patients' and their families' welfare.
