Many patients who visit our chiropractic clinic in Stoke on Trent ask us about ways to help keep joints strong and healthy. While exercise is good for many health conditions, there are certain types of exercises that can play a major part in the management of joint pain.
Our leading Stoke on Trent chiropractor highlights some beneficial activities that can help to ease joint pain and discomfort:
Swimming is a great way to strengthen many important muscles and joints and it comes with a reduced risk of wear on tear on the joints.
2: Range-of-motion exercises
This type of exercise involves moving the joint through its full range of motion in the aid to reduce stiffness and enhance flexibility. A good chiropractor, GP or physical instructor can provide you with more information on this activity based around your individual case.
Cycling offers a low-impact exercise that is effective in strengthening joints and increasing overall fitness levels.
4: Strength training
Taking part in gentle weight training exercises can help to provide enhanced strength and support within the muscles around the joints.
Remember to speak to your doctor or health care professional before starting any exercise routine. If you have joint pain, ask your doctor or medical professional to recommend exercises that are suitable for you. If any exercise worsens your pain, stop and speak to your doctor before starting again.
