Exercise isn’t a DIY project

Many chiropractors incorporate exercise training or rehab into their practice, but too often patients feel they can make exercise a “do-it-yourself” project without supervision by a trained wellness professional. If you come across patients like that, be sure to share this information with them.

Performance isn't just for athletesFlexcin International, the makers of Flexcin with CM8 joint nutrition supplement, says demand for its joint health supplements and creams have almost doubled this year for people experiencing discomfort from use of home fitness exercise videos and products that lead to injury and over-training.

The company press release noted that an estimated 75-100 million baby boomers are now being targeted for home fitness products but without adequate guidance, they are susceptible to injury.

“A growing percentage of these people are injuring themselves through improper technique and over-training with popular boot-camp style home workout videos,” the company warned.

Once you’ve given them the training they need, patients can often do the exercises at home if you feel they’re ready for that step. But they need to be cautioned that buying an exercise video or piece of home gym equipment isn’t the same as getting proper advice from their chiropractor!
