Yoga and Chiropractic Care – The Perfect Match

Yoga and Chiropractic Care – The Perfect Match

Make An Appointment

Although it seems like both chiropractic care and yoga have been around forever, it’s only over the past few decades that both practices have gained great popularity. People from all over the world have incorporated either yoga or chiropractic care into their lives and found that they’re now much less prone to injuries and have better flexibility.

To maximize the effectiveness and enjoy the benefits of yoga and chiropractic care, more people now use the two healing activities in tandem.

Promotes healing

It wouldn’t be an understatement to claim that yoga is the perfect supplement for chiropractic care. Yoga exercises increase your body’s flexibility and clear your mind before you go to your chiropractor. It will also help you feel more relaxed and have a more positive approach with regards to your treatment.

Yoga also stretches out your body’s muscles and makes your chiropractor’s work much easier as they can now be more direct with their approach.

Strengthens joints and ligaments

Even though advanced yoga poses put a significant strain on your joints, normal yoga poses are relatively low-impact, which is why it’s recommended for people with arthritis. Yoga, when combined with chiropractic care, radically increases the strength of your joints and ligaments.

Since yoga focuses on building strength in your core and smaller muscles, it’s especially beneficial for people recovering from injury or looking to prevent injury. This allows the body to be more receptive to chiropractic care as it’s not sore and stiff.

Increases range of motion

Individuals who have an active lifestyle often find that a decreased range of motion, due to injury or any other medical condition can be incredibly frustrating. In such cases where you can’t engage in intense physical activities, yoga is an amazing way to put your body on the road to recovery.

Yoga is known for helping increase mobility and range of motion, which leads to faster recovery times. When yoga is done as a supplementary activity to chiropractic care, it keeps the body aligned, and the increase in range of motion enables chiropractors to perform complex adjustments smoothly.

I thought I was going to have to deal with plantar fasciitis for the rest of my life. I had done all the recommended steps from orthotics, icing, stretching, massage…nothing worked. I saw Jason. He said 5 treatments with shockwave therapy should significantly improve the problem. I said no way. In a way, I was right-it took 6 treatments but I’m pain free. Amazing. Great service and a product that works.
Thank you to Dr. Nanda and his great team of specialist for taking care me. Very friendly and knowledgable!
Here is what I say about my shock treatments. I have had chronic back pain for over 40 years. Nothing has worked for me and I have tried many, many types of back treatments. Nothing worked. I was going to go for laser spine surgery. Divergent was going to be my last “try” before laser surgery. I went in with absolutely NO expectations. I had one treatment, walked out thinking “okay, my back doesn’t hurt but that won’t last.” Well guess what? It works!!!! I have had 5 treatments since May, 2017 and I have no back pain. None! Without Divergent and Dr. Jason, my life would still be a painful one. Jason, you have saved me. Anyone with any pain needs to go to Divergent. With many thanks to all of you.
I have been suffering with Plantar Fasciitis in both of my feet for over a year now and the pain was just too unbearable to deal with. I did all the recommended stretching, icing and other treatments that just didn’t help. So, I said enough is enough as I deserve to feel better than this and made the appointment at Divergent Health Care.
