The year will soon be coming to an end and that means many of us will be making resolutions to improve our health during 2016. We’ve all been there; we’ve all spent the festive holidays eating too much, drinking too much and generally overindulging in all the niceties that Christmas brings. And that usually means that, come January, we’re eager and ready to launch ourselves into a new exercise routine to get fighting fit for the brand new year ahead. But according to our trusted chiropractor in Stoke on Trent, too much exercise too soon after Christmas could be bad for our health.
Our Stoke on Trent chiropractor warns that while the motivation to get healthier is great, starting intense exercise after overindulging at Christmas could put us at risk of injury. Physical exercise puts increased pressure on our muscles and joints so it is important that our bodies are introduced to exercise safely. If we do too much too soon when our bodies are not used to it, we could potentially cause back and neck problems.
If you are not normally physically active, check that there are no medical reasons why you cannot take part in a particular exercise and speak to your GP if you are in doubt. Our experienced team of chiropractors in Stoke on Trent can advise you on how to start a new exercise routine and can help you to look for signs that you may be overdoing it.
