Are you noticing a decrease in your flexibility? Aging is not a valid excuse! Chiropractic care aims to increase your range of motion which in turn may help improve your athletic performance and decrease your risk of injury.
Decreased flexibility and range of motion due to an injury or medical condition can take a serious toll on your mental and physical health. Studies have shown that chiropractic treatments significantly improve range of motion*.
To further your flexibility it is imperative that you stretch regularly. Part of your chiropractic visit will be discussing stretches and home exercises that you can do yourself. For more stretching tips, check out the Mayo Clinic's advice here.
