STRETCH & RECOVERY OR CHIROPRACTIC CARE: WHICH SHOULD YOU CHOOSE?

When you notice pain in your back or neck, seeking a chiropractor could be your first thought. Chiropractors are known to treat musculoskeletal problems so you can gain mobility and comfort in your everyday movement. Stretch & Recovery helps increase mobility and decrease pain, as well. So, what’s the difference between seeing a chiropractor and getting a one-on-one Stretch & Recovery session, and which one should you choose? 

CHIROPRACTIC CARE 

Let’s start with the fundamentals of chiropractic care. There’s much more to chiropractic care than just “cracking bones.” Chiropractors are healthcare professionals who focus on neuromuscular issues in the body. They help realign the body to reduce pain and discomfort caused by pulled or pinched nerves and misaligned vertebrae using chiropractic manipulations.  

Chiropractic manipulation involves a chiropractor finding and adjusting the spine and/or joints that show signs of restricted movement. Chiropractors treat a variety of issues, including neck pain, back pain, sciatica, tension headaches, mild scoliosis, and more. They may also recommend nutrition and prevention plans.  

STRETCH & RECOVERY  

Stretch & Recovery involves an active approach to restoration and recovery within the body. A one-on-one Stretch & Recovery session will focus on movement rather than manipulation. Stretching is essentially “movement” therapy aimed at lengthening your muscles and increasing your body’s range of motion. Tight, contracted muscles and joints can cause pain and discomfort, but Stretch & Recovery can help. Stretch & Recovery can also improve physical performance and is something you can do on your own time, as well. Because of this, the results seen from Stretch & Recovery are long-term, while chiropractic manipulations, depending on the treatment type, may not be.  

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CHIROPRACTIC CARE? 

Chiropractic care can help: 

  • Alleviate pain following a chiropractic manipulation 
  • Decrease recovery time from an injury 
  • Reduce muscle tension 
  • Increase your range of motion

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF STRETCH & RECOVERY? 

Stretching can help: 

  • Prevent needless pain and injury  
  • Improve blood circulation 
  • Improve your posture & muscle imbalances and weaknesses   
  • Restore your body’s natural range of motion 
  • It can also be very relaxing and therapeutic!  

WHICH IS BETTER? 

It’s clear that chiropractic care and Stretch & Recovery have many shared benefits! The real difference lies in the approach. Stretch & Recovery is active, while chiropractic care can be more passive. Chiropractors can recommend stretches that may help prevent certain neuromuscular issues, but they do not commonly perform those stretches on a patient. Their main focus is on chiropractic manipulations.  

Many issues treated by a chiropractor can be treated actively through stretching. Neck pain and back pain caused by tight muscles, mild scoliosis, and joint pain can all be improved with Stretch & Recovery. That said, Stretch & Recovery is more likely to benefit your body in the long term. Additionally, routine stretching can be performed anywhere, offering all those great benefits, from pain relief to better physical performance!
