Hi, my name is Michael and I am the principal Chiropractor at Chichester Chiropractic Health Centre. I have been doing Yoga on and off for the past 6 years, I find it very beneficial to keep my spine and surrounding joints moving smoothly and better balanced.
I found the heat helped to relaxed my muscles, allowing me to deepen my postures and even touch my toes – something I had never been able to do previously!
I only discovered LANO and their hot Bikram classes 14 months ago, having previously only done ‘cold’ yoga, the hot classes were like a revolution for my body. For years I have been an avid mountain biker, which even with regular stretching had caused my hamstrings to tighten, limiting a lot of my yoga postures. I found the heat helped to relaxed my muscles, allowing me to deepen my postures and even touch my toes – something I had never been able to do previously!
I find that Yoga and Chiropractic are a great match and work in very similar ways helping to rebalance and strengthen the spine.
Being a Chiropractor I see a variety of people at different stages of their lives, who present with many different spinal issues and imbalances. Most spinal dysfunction comes from improper movement of the body and poor posture, I find that Yoga and Chiropractic are a great match and work in very similar ways helping to rebalance and strengthen the spine. I recommend stretching routines to all my patients and encourage them to start Yoga to help compliment the changes we have made to their body.
Chiropractic looks to correct specific misalignments of the spine and pelvis, helping the body to return to normal function. I see a number of people who practice regular Yoga and they don’t always complain of pain. One of the most common issues is the inability to hold a certain posture, getting ‘stuck’ in a posture, feeling imbalanced when standing on one leg or just not feeling straight.
