Ease Into Your New Year Fitness Resolution

The New Year is upon us, and with it comes the renewed motivation to get healthier and start exercising more. While physical exercise is recommended for any chiropractic patient, it can be difficult to start on the right path.

When we allow our gym routine to slide, rededicating and restarting a physical fitness program too quickly and too intensely provides the perfect situation for injury. Why? Overused muscles can lead to injury and scar tissue, restricting motion and causing pain.

Slow and Steady Wins the Race

Whenever renewing your commitment to exercise, avoid expectations of attaining fitness “this week” or even “this month.” Listen to your body. Allow joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments time to adapt to the challenge of additional activity and they will resist injury. When you’re patient, chances are your body will firm, strengthen and stretch as you work on your goals.

This year, don’t subscribe to a “zero to 60″ fitness routine or the latest fad workout plan. Avoid start-up injuries, which can unnecessarily derail your goal to regain your health. Consider regular chiropractic care as a complement to your exercise regimen, helping to keep your body balanced and on track.

Here’s to finding fitness this year—not this week or this month.
