Is Exercise Taking a Toll on Your Body?

As we advance in age one thing is true for all of us: we begin to feel the effects of our activity far more than we did when we were younger. This means that it’s important to double-down on your fitness recovery plan. Having a plan and being as actionable in your recovery process as you are during your workouts is called “Active Recovery.”

Below, Espinosa Family Chiropractic goes over a few ways to address the effects that over-training and/or under-recovering has on your body.

First, it’s important to make the distinction as to whether you’ve experienced an injury or your body is under tension and strain. If you do have an injury, it’s important to address this immediately with a doctor.

If you’re just feeling the effects of getting your body in shape or pushing your body to its limitations, then that’s okay. Doing things like yoga and intensive stretching will help you relax and ease any tension experienced from working out. Getting 7-9 hours of sleep is also crucial to ensure your body can repair itself after grueling workouts.

Chiropractic treatment is also a great way to give your body all-natural healing health benefits. Contact Espinosa Family Chiropractic today to learn about how our treatments help active patients recover more effectively.
