Strengthen Your Back

Sure, we’re all about tried-and-true chiropractic care. Chiropractic adjustments play a huge role in body maintenance and also holistically treating injuries, but exercising your back and all of its muscles will help you stay active and avoid injury as well. Paddleboarding is one activity that will work your core stabilizer muscles while at the same time engaging your back.

Benefits of Paddleboarding

There are a host of benefits you can glean from taking up stand-up paddleboarding. 

First, you’ll get a  ull body workout, incorporating just about every muscle in the body. You’ll have to work to achieve balance while your leg muscles maintain stabilization, keeping your center of gravity. Your arms, back, and shoulders will be getting an amazing workout, too, propelling you and the paddleboard through the water. Your core, back and abdominal muscles will be constantly at work to keep your balance and keep you moving!

Paddleboarding is also low impact. You won’t be doing the damage to your tendons and ligaments of your joints that you would with, say, running. Runners with shin splints or knee and hip pain especially gravitate towards this increasingly popular outdoor activity. It’s a great exercise while you’re well and while you’re healing!

If you have back or spine pain that persists through your active lifestyle, it might be time to think about incorporating chiropractic care into your wellness practice. Contact Vital Energy Wellness & Chiropractic Center Inc to schedule your initial consultation.
