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.

I have been an advocate for chiropractic care since 1986. After spending 2 ½ years going to traditional doctors for pain relief after my coxis was broken in childbirth in 1984. There was little they could offer me except painkillers, which provided no real progress or physical reparations. Then a wise friend of mine recommended that I try her chiropractor that had delivered amazing relief to her and wondered what he could do for me.

That was the beginning of my healing. It was an eye opening experience; different to what I had been exposed to my whole life. It was all new and quite unfamiliar, but it set me on a positive proactive course for the rest of my life—one that would allow me to utilize the best of what western or eastern medicine can offer.
Wherever my family moves in this great country of ours, I always look up and explore chiropractic care providers. Here in Lake Jackson, I found Dr. Grace Pavlovsky and Dr. Jeff Ward! Grace has been seeing me for 5 years and always gets me fixed up. But, I had my doubts that she could repair the damage I had done to myself helping my husband carry a 200+ pound wall of my kitchen to the trash. No more than 12 steps were taken when I audibly heard pop in my back which dropped me to my knees. That happened Thanksgiving 2009, and I have been feeling pain relief in small doses with Grace’s healing hands. But what overnight brought me the most relief was wearing custom foot orthopedics Ward Chiropractic Center had made just for my body. I picked them up at 3 in the afternoon, and about 3 hours after first walking in them the shooting pain that had been plaguing me and had originated in my hip and traveled to my ankle had subsided almost completely. It was truly amazing. It gave me my first real ray of hope that I might not have irreparably damaged myself forever and that I might not have to live a severely limited lifestyle.

I still have a ways to go, I will have to listen to my body with more care, continue doing stretches and continue with regular chiropractic care, but it is “do-able. And it is always a pleasure opening the door to Ward Chiropractic Center because a smile greets me, a positive energy envelops me and there is a sense that everyone there wants to be a part of your healing journey.

I have been a patient of Dr. Ward's since mid July 2007. I have always had a misconception of what chiropractic care was all about. Due to my severe back pain which was worsening day by day, I decided to see Dr. Ward mainly to find out what was wrong with my back. It is now Jan. 2008 and after 6+ months of reconstructive therapy to my spine I am virtually pain free. I was wrong about chiropractics... it isn't 'pop you out and go home'. Dr. Ward diagnoses your problem before he even touches you and then using his state of the art equipment and knowledge in his field he targets the problem area and makes a therapy program to suit your individual need. I highly recommend this man to anyone suffering any discomfort at all. Not to mention he has a wonderful bedside manner. Thank you Dr. Ward!!!!
