When Should I Get Adjusted?

My answer to this question is based on the understanding that the chiropractic adjustment would be better received by the general public if it was offered from the fitness industry instead of our so-called “health” care/ insurance system. I recommend that people perform any strenuous activity before an adjustment. I also recommend that people relax after the adjustment and avoid strenuous activity. Sleep would be ideal. 

The body has better communication lines with the innate intelligence after a chiropractic adjustment. Take advantage of this time and get your conscience mind out of the way. If sleep is not an option, at least rest and relax. Heavy exercise after a chiropractic adjustment is counter productive. Straining and struggling will twist the spine into the subluxated position, the very state we want to correct. Chiropractic adjustments should be available at fitness centers, so people could be adjusted after their workout and then relax.

 Using a professional football team as an example, I would offer to adjust every player after every practice. Checking and adjusting the players this way would produce better performance, less injuries and faster recovery time, if an injury occurs. I was at the finish line of a marathon waiting for my daughter to come in and many of the people I spoke to suggested that next time I should have a booth set up to adjust the runners after the race. I explained that the runners would be better served if they were checked and adjusted after every practice run for a couple of months before the race. The marathon itself would be a breeze. 

 Everyone should have their spine checked and adjusted often, but for our fitness minded practice members, this is sound advice.
