Do you lead an active lifestyle, but prefer running or cardio workouts over strength training?
Do you have lingering back pain that keeps you from doing activities you once enjoyed?
When done properly, strength exercises do exactly that – strengthen weak muscles in your legs, core, and back, which will give you more support over time and help reduce back pain.
Here are some other ways strength training can be beneficial:
- Stronger heart: Strength training can burn the fat that surrounds your organ easier and more efficiently than simple cardio workouts. Burning that fat (visceral fat) can decrease stress on the heart and improve its capability to pump blood.
- Better mental health: Exercise releases “feel good” hormones (dopamine) which act as a reward to your brain. Strength training in particular increases self-confidence, which is a great way to combat anxiety and depression.

What’s the Difference Between Structural Chiropractic Care and Conventional Chiropractic Care?
Most Chiropractors you’ll find on your typical Google search are conventional chiropractors. They focus on reducing pain, inflammation, muscle spasms and increasing range of motion in joints.
They manage these health concerns with the use of general manipulations of the neck and spine. This is what most chiropractors offer in the way of care, and we believe that most of them do a great job at it.
As a Specific Structural Corrective Chiropractor, Dr. Gessert is dedicated to diagnosing and correcting the underlying cause of your condition. If you have back pain, neck pain, or tingling or numbness in your hands and feet, it’s time to see a chiropractor.
