Use Chiropractic Care To Improve Your Yoga Practice Immediately

Dr. Ariel Thorpe

Yoga has grown in popularity over the past few decades, helping people find better mental and physical wellbeing. Whether you use yoga as a form of physical exercise or as a spiritual practice, the principle of it as a path toward growth remains the same. Every individual’s yoga practice is unique and sits somewhere on the spectrum from an intense, heated vinyasa to a more gentle yin yoga. Regardless of the focus, reaching your individual goals as a yogi can be done more effectively and efficiently with chiropractic care.


Balancing poses can be tricky progressions, especially when involving inversions. Often yogis will notice that one side of the body does balancing postures better. While practice will lead to improvement over time, going to the root cause of the balance issues can help make drastic improvements. Chiropractic care has the ability to improve nervous system communication between the brain and the rest of the body. When brain-body communication is optimized, muscle activation can be more specific, thus allowing for recruiting the best muscles to find balance. Chiropractic care has also helped people with issues in the inner ear, where our balance is perceived by the brain.


Moving to the next level of some poses requires better flexibility. One of the focuses of chiropractic care is creating better mobility in the joints of the spine and extremities. Inflammation in the joints decreases with adjustments, opening up space for more flexible movement and better communication along the nervous system. As scar tissue breaks down and tissues regrow in more optimal directions, this allows the body to move further and in better alignment, allowing for more precise yoga postures.


One of the benefits of a regular, challenging yoga practice is the improvement in strength. As the body adapts and grows lean muscle tissue and increases endurance, it needs the support of the other systems of the body. Chiropractic care affects the nerves that control muscles.

Finding a chiropractor that uses a holistic approach, going beyond symptom-focused care to heal and optimize your entire body will take your practice to the next level. Using a synergistic combination of chiropractic adjustments, correction of lifestyle habits and tailor-made exercise programs, the right practitioner can help you effectively transform your yoga practice.
