If you recently visited or have been researching a chiropractor, you probably have learned that along with chiropractic treatment you will often get an exercise and nutrition plan to go along with it. After all, what’s a nervous system without a good diet? If you are not eating well, even if you are eating enough calories a day, your nervous system might still feel disrupted because it is not getting the proper nutrients.
Chiropractic care is a great treatment for back and neck pain, but can also be complemented with pilates exercises. Pilates are exercises created by Joseph Pilates, which focus on the core by building strength, flexibility, and muscle without the need of heavy weights. Pilates can go hand in hand with chiropractic care in decreasing back pain, improving posture and strengthening the core. There is usually no problem by combining the two, but as always before exposing your body to anything new consult with a doctor.
