KEEP MOVING THROUGH ISOLATION

With gyms closed, running has become a popular way to stay fit and relieve stress during this crazy time. 

Running also creates physical strain on your body, bringing muscle and joint imbalances to the forefront. Tight hamstrings or calf muscles sound familiar? Challenges with your IT band or Achilles? Heel pain or plantar fasciitis?

Did you know that sitting all day tightens your hip flexors and weakens your core and buttock muscles? This will impact how well your leg and foot can absorb the load when running. In one foot alone, there are 26 bones, 33 joints, 112 ligaments, and a network of nerves, tendons and blood vessels that have to work together when we run. From your core down to your toes, there is a lot going on with each step!

Flexible hips and strong core and buttock muscles are important in the prevention of lower limb injuries. Visit our Video Exercise Library and give the Lunge Stretch, Glute Bridge and McGill Abs a try.

The correct shoe also plays a key role in minimizing injuries. To better understand how a running shoe is designed, click and learn how to find the best fit for you.

Even if you’re a super slow jogger, you’ll burn at least 10 calories for each minute of running. That means you’ll run off one square of Lindt dark chocolate in 6 minutes! 


Drs. Doris Mertins, Darcie Sinclair, and Roberta Da Re are here to provide you with high quality, personalized care. 

. . . 

Whether we’re feeling chained to our desks or stuck in a long meeting, muscle tension builds the longer we can’t move.  

Throw stress into the mix and the tension builds even faster!

A little movement throughout the day goes a long way in relaxing our muscles, lubricating our joints and pushing out stress to provide some relief.

Whether you sit or stand at your desk, changing positions is key to avoiding strain. Easing the tension of an office job doesn’t need to be complicated or time consuming. 

Try our 7- minute Desk Stretching Routine to help you through your day.

If discomfort persists even with regular stretching don’t hesitate to consult your chiropractor. 

A proper assessment can help pinpoint trouble spots and get you back on track.
