The chiropractic industry is constantly evolving to adapt to the latest trends in the medical field. Fortunately, many chiropractors are hopping on the holistic bandwagon, offering treatment that does not include prescription drugs. New procedures are being developed all the time for chiropractic treatment, catering to a large demographic that prefers a natural approach to healthcare and body alignment. Some products and methods are brand new, while others are new and improved approaches to existing treatments.
In current chiropractic trends, physicians are preaching an all-encompassing approach to body wellness. Not only are patients visiting chiropractic offices for regular treatments, they are practicing body alignment on their own through exercise and yoga. Yoga is an ancient practice, and in recent years it has peaked in popularity in the Western World. It is not a new fad for chiropractors to suggest yoga to their patients, but with a recent increase in the number of people adopting yoga as a regular practice, more and more chiropractic patients are utilizing the perks of yoga for spinal and joint care.
Yoga has many health benefits, making it a great compliment to most chiropractic plans, regardless of the patient’s condition. This is because yoga is a personal practice and can be manipulated to fit the needs of the individual. Yoga is a mind-body practice that uses physical postures, breathing techniques, and relaxing poses to allow the body to stretch while increasing airflow and reducing tension in the body and mind. Yoga improves flexibility, oxygen flow, and range of motion while promoting relaxation and decreasing anxiety.
Many people with chronic lower back pain benefit from yoga poses that are adapted to suit their individual conditions and needs. A series of yoga poses can reduce pain as well as increase functionality of the spine and joints. Many yoga practitioners report a decrease in anxiety and depression. Other health benefits include reduced heart rate and blood pressure, allowing the body to slip into a deeper relaxed state and increasing flexibility of the spine.
Yoga is typically a low-impact form of exercise and stretching. It should be practiced under the guidance of a credible instructor. Those with spinal injuries or other spinal debilitations should consult with a chiropractor before developing a yoga practice. A chiropractor can advise the type of spinal modifications an individual should consider when practicing yoga. Having a conversation with your yoga instructor at the beginning of class to address spinal issues is a good idea. By relaying the information from your chiropractic visit to your yoga instructor, you can work together to develop a practice that is both safe and beneficial to your chiropractic plan.
It is becoming such a common tool for healthcare that yoga is statistically in the top sixth most complementary used health practices among adults in the United States. Motives for practicing yoga may vary. Some individuals practice to improve physical fitness, relieve stress, and improve breathing. As suggested by doctors, yoga can alleviate back and neck pain as well as some pain and stiffness caused by arthritis.
After just six months, chiropractic patients who practice yoga may experience a significant decrease in chronic low-back pain. In fact, patients who dedicate adequate time each week combined with the appropriate yoga techniques for their condition may have better results than if they were taking medication and going the traditional medical route to improving spinal alignment.
If you are considering integrating yoga into your life, you should not fully replace conventional medical approaches or neglect visiting a healthcare provider about your medical condition. Everyone’s body is unique and has specific needs. Once you speak with your healthcare provider, you should ask them about what limitations you may initially have upon entering your yoga practice. Your chiropractor may even be able to recommend a yoga instructor or the style of yoga that would best suit your body alignment needs.
"I visited the East Hill Chiropractic Clinic several months ago with a pinched nerve and severe back pain. I had three adjustments with Dr. Haas and 10 half hour massage sessions with Mirian. My back pain is gone with only a slight tingle remaining in my hand. I also visited Mirian yesterday with a muscle strain that had given me severe pain for a week. After my half hour session with Mirian, the pain is now gone. The massage package they have for $245 is the best deal in town. "East Hill Customer

"As a nurse and working with pain management patients I was all too familiar with the stigma attached to the term "pain mgt pt" but one day it hit me and I stood at my dining room table and literally cried because it hurt to even move. It just came out of nowhere so I did an internet search for chiropractor and came up with East Chiropractic/ Dr Kevin Hogan. I called them and was able to get in just a few hours later and I was amazed with the relief I got just after the first visit. "East Hill Customer

Wow...do you make me feel relaxed. AND...the front desk people are awesome. This is one office where I walk in and immediately feel comfortable."East Hill Customer
"Have avoided going to Chiro for my bad back for years, retreating to Urgent care getting meds and nursing it for weeks. This time, my pain had not subsided for 8 weeks. Got diagnosed by Dr. Haas with a detailed description of what was going on, and explained the physiology of how and why I was hurting. After 1 adjustment, my pain was reduced 50% and nerve pain was alleviated. Ortho Massage from Miriam was great, best Ive had. Bottom line, these folks were honest and not salesy. And helped me!"East Hill Customer
