The Importance of Flexibility


One of the greatest benefits of chiropractic is how it improves range of motion, impacting flexibility, reaction speeds, balance and coordination. It’s no wonder that many athletes swear by chiropractic to keep them on top of their game. At Espinosa Family Chiropractic, we see the impact that sedentary lifestyles have on the standard human’s flexibility: it is a very sad sight and we are here to change that.

When we sit in front of the computer all day, then watch TV all night, our muscles are training themselves to achieve only the range of motion necessary to sit, and generally not with good posture. Age and weight are other factors that conspire to limit the seemingly unlimited range of motion we once enjoyed as children and young adults. Poor flexibility leaves us more susceptible to injury, makes everyday movements more difficult, limits our athletic performance and makes recovering from injury less successful. 

Through chiropractic adjustment, we target spinal joints that may be out of alignment, creating pain and limiting your motion. Once we get you moving again, we help you implement a personalized plan that combines corrective exercise and flexibility stretching to keep you limber for a long life.
