Keep Active And Have Fun – It’s Important For Your Back

Keeping active and taking exercise doesn’t necessarily mean going to the gym. After all most gym memberships never get used!

However, staying active and taking regular exercise is important to our health and the health of our backs. Finding a form of exercise we enjoy is more likely to mean that we will do it and stick to it.

Our chiropractors at Newcastle Chiropractic Clinic want to encourage people to be active and take regular exercise and here they share their top 3 ways to do this:

Walking: This is by far one of the best forms of exercise that can be taken. Most everyone can do it and it can be taken at your own pace and the pace can be built up over time. It offers so many benefits from helping weight loss, preventing and managing various health conditions, aiding in strengthening bones and muscles and helping improve your mood and and reducing stress levels.

Swimming: This offers an all-round form of exercise that is low impact. Whatever your age or ability it is a great activity that helps you get fit, stay active and feel great. The Jubilee 2 pool is convenient if you live in Newcastle under Lyme or if you live in Stoke on Trent there is the Dimensions Leisure Centre.

Dancing: Programmes such as Strictly Come Dancing have brought a new interest in taking up dancing. It really is a great fun way to get active and take some exercise. Whatever moves you want to perform on the dance floor there are classes held regularly in dance schools in Newcastle under Lyme and Stoke on Trent. So what are you waiting for ” Get Dancing”!

Remember to seek the advice of your chiropractor or health care professional before starting on any new exercise regime.

Our chiropractors are here to advise you and help you.

 

 

 

Walk Your Way to a Healthy Christmas!

It’s Christmas! And what does that mean? A week or two of lounging on the sofa, watching every TV special under the sun while eating and drinking way too much? Not if you want to start the New Year in good health.

We all like to relax over the festive period; and we’re all entitled to indulge, but doing too little over the festive period could set us up for back pain and a host of other health issues. While no one expects you to hit the gym every morning over the holidays, getting a few walks in is a really good idea.

Here our Newcastle under Lyme chiropractor highlights just some of the benefits of walking over the Christmas holidays:

  • It can help you to keep those extra holiday pounds off.  Remember that unnecessary weight is unnecessary strain on your spine!
  • It can help to prevent or manage various conditions, including heart disease, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes
  • It can aid in strengthening your bones and muscles
  • It can improve your mood and reduce your stress levels

The more regularly you walk, the greater the benefits. Don’t wait until the New Year to get healthy. After all, poor health won’t wait for you!
