Exercise Smarter in Little Neck

Who in Little Neck doesn’t take pride in working hard and reaching their goals? Regardless of the situation, it is human nature to enjoy the accolades that come with seeing results. In this day and age however, it is almost as though just reaching goals is not enough. We have to reach our goals FASTER!  There are several reasons why “fast” is not necessarily the appropriate speed to obtain your goals, in fact racing toward results could actually hinder rather than help. Contact our Little Neck chiropractic office to learn more.

How many times have we all heard the same story?  Someone resolves to “get in shape". They buy the gear, the shoes, the gym membership. They head to the gym one, two, or several more times. They have grandiose dreams of a “perfect body” and want it after the first few trips.

The reality of the matter is they fail to properly prepare for the exercise program, they over-do it the first few trips, they end up being sore for days. They might even undergo an injury due to their lack of conditioning before starting the exercise program, causing even longer delays and potential medical bills. The goal of beginning an exercise program and getting into shape is often never realized because those that have set the goal are trying to rush the process, exercising harder and not smarter.


So what does exercising smarter entail? Pace yourself. If you have not been exercising, pace yourself when getting back into it. Some soreness after working out is more than okay! However, listen to your body. If you need a break, take one. Rushing yourself can result in injury and will ultimately keep you from slow steady progress that will lead to you reaching your goals. At Care Chiropractic, we can offer specific advice individualized to your needs.

exercise as a lifestyle

It may be wise to begin exercising with a walking program, gradually increasing your pace and length of the walk over time. Make it a LIFESTYLE! An exercise program should not be something you tackle for a few weeks or months.  It should be a lifelong healthy habit.

The same slow, gradual approach should be used regardless of the type of exercise you are performing.  If you are using weights, doing pilates or yoga, it is wise to take it a bit slower at first, using lower weights and listening to your body. As time goes on, you will realize that your body is getting stronger and that you can begin adding more weight or time to your workouts. If you are consistent you will begin to notice amazing results like increased energy levels, better posture and flexibility, healthier complexion, and a more restful sleep.


Chiropractic care in Little Neck is a great complement to any exercise program. As you exercise and increase your strength and fitness levels you may suffer minor injuries that go unnoticed. Regular chiropractic care can aid in preventing potential injuries or speeding the healing process through restoring proper joint mobility and myofascial work. Most injuries that occur are the result of tight muscles, poor flexibility, and improper movement techniques.

Exercise smart and make it a regular part of your lifestyle.

You don’t have to wait until you have an injury to start chiropractic care!  Call our dedicated team at Care Chiropractic today with any questions you might have.
