Exercising

A fundamental choice to having a healthy mind, body, and soul.

Cardiovascular and strengthening exercises combined with chiropractic care are important in the management of lower back pain. If a chiropractic patient has a history of heart problems, it is important for the patient to consult with their Primary Care Physician to be certain they can tolerate cardiovascular fitness activities.

Specific instructions are given by the chiropractor with respect to proper exercise for the patient’s condition before beginning any exercises. Programs, in general, require a reasonable amount of exercise that is performed daily and utilizes activities that are enjoyed are recommended for patients undergoing chiropractic treatment.

Overall and when combined with chiropractic care, exercise helps promote proper digestion, keeps the muscles in proper tone, and promotes better circulation. Walking basically around the block at least once or twice a day is a convenient and popular activity. Also, many forms of work and/or household tasks can function as an exercise program. The important point is to exercise!

Low Back

If a patient feels best when bending over (flexion Biased), exercises that promote low back pain such as pulling the knees to the chest, posterior pelvic tilts, bending forward from a sitting position and others are usually helpful.

Legs

If a patient is least symptomatic in extension, especially if leg pain centralizes or diminishes (Extension Biased)

Strengthening of the pelvic stabilizing muscles (Trunk Muscles), hamstrings, adductors, and other overly short or tight postural muscles, as well as proprioceptive or balance promoting exercises also can result in a greater patient satisfying outcome.

Dr. Hogan and his team come highly recommended. This staff is professional, friendly, and highly effective in their pursuit to maintain your overall health and alignment. I started visiting the office about 4 years ago while suffering from a pain in my shoulder. Thanks to Dr. Hogan, I am pain-free, and feeling 100%. I still visit Dr. Hogan to receive routine maintenance care. I also benefit from an occasional visit to the on-site massage therapist....and the amazing chair in the waiting area! The office is warm and comfortable. I trust Dr. Hogan and have recommended his services to many friends and family. I know he will exceed your expectations.

Love going here. They don't waste your time with long waits like a standard doctors office. The atmosphere is very comfortable and friendly. The care is thorough and effective. I bring my kids here and wouldn't do without it!

Outside the hustle and bustle of Seattle, they are very polite and helpful - especially with long commuter bus schedules! I hurt my back and had to go in to get a masage asap - saved me and I was able to get back to life right away. Thanks much Gang!

This place is one of a kind. Not only do I enjoy going here, but I look forward to it. I am greeted with a smile by Angie (most friendly person ever) at the front desk every time, with a "hello Jake!" Talk about feeling special. Dr. Hogan is also one of a kind. Every visit he is focused on me, and not getting through me and on to the next patient. He remembers everything about our previous conversations, such as golf or weekend plans, and then follows up on those talks the next visit. After my adjustment I get to go and get a massage from Mel. She is great too! She is always positive and friendly. I enjoy our recipe swapping too.

As far as treatment goes, I was in a car accident a couple months ago, and barely able to go about my everyday activities without pain, not to mention cutting cycling and golf out of my life totally. I am now almost pain free. My everyday life is no longer restricted, I am able to golf, cycle, and more recently have taken on tennis. I feel great! Thank you Ballinger Village Chiropractic (Doc, Angie, and Mel).
