Exercising in Saint Augustine, FL

Exercise is fundamental to creating a healthy mind, body, and spirit.

The benefits of exercise have a lasting effect long after you have stopped the activity. Exercise can help fight disease, control weight, improve mood, boost energy, and so much more.

Many people worry that exercise will worsen their spinal or joint condition, but in most cases, exercise combined with chiropractic care is important in the management of painful conditions of the joints and spine. Patients with a history of heart problems should consult with their doctor before beginning an exercise program.

Types of Exercise to Combine with Chiropractic Care

Low Back

If a patient feels best when bending over (flexion biased), exercises such as pulling the knees to the chest, posterior pelvic tilts, bending forward from a sitting position, and a host of others can help provide relief.


If a patient has fewer symptoms while in extension, primarily if your leg pain centralizes or decreases (extension biased), leg strengthening exercises are appropriate.


Strengthening of the pelvic stabilizing muscles (core muscles), hamstrings, adductors, and other overly short or tight postural muscles, as well as proprioceptive or balance promoting exercises can improve outcomes.

  • Combining Chiropractic and Daily Exercise Promotes a Healthy Body.

    Overall, exercise helps promote proper digestion, keeps the muscles toned, and improves circulation. Even an activity as simple as walking around the block at least once or twice a day is a convenient and beneficial activity. Also, many forms of work and/or household tasks can function as an exercise program. The important point is to exercise!
