Ten Minutes of Stretching Can Make All the Difference
Chiropractic Care Is Part of Your Exercise Program
We all want to be healthy and well. Achieving this goal requires some time and effort, but the payoff is well worth it. Regular exercise helps lower blood pressure, helps slow your heart rate, and helps you sleep better at night. Regular exercise often helps people lose weight and puts a spring in their step. Regular exercise puts color in your cheeks and gives your skin that certain glow. Exercise is a very good thing.
Chiropractic care helps us get the most out of our exercise by making hidden reserves available for peak performance. Regular chiropractic care removes nerve interference and keeps the joints of our spine moving freely, eliminating roadblocks to full mobility and full function. By helping optimize our nerve systems and musculoskeletal systems, regular chiropractic care helps get our bodies in shape so that we can do the exercises needed to keep our bodies in shape.
Should I stretch before or after I exercise?1 Should I even bother to stretch at all? These are the questions that every busy adult asks whenever he or she is planning to begin an exercise program. The correct answer to the first question is "do whatever is right for you." Some people need to lengthen their major muscle groups, such as the quadriceps (front of the thigh), hamstrings (back of the thigh), and calves, before they run, walk, swim, and/or lift weights for exercise. For others, it's best to stretch at the end of a workout, re-lengthening the major muscle groups so they'll be ready to help you move through the rest of your day.
The answer to the second question is "yes, stretching is important for everybody and is often the missing link in trying to understand why you injured yourself when you were exercising." Stretching helps you either warm up or cool down, whichever is needed for you to get the most out of your exercise. Not stretching in the way that you need puts you on the fast track to sustaining an exercise-related injury. As always, prevention is the best policy.
A dynamic warm-up is a fun and entertaining supplement or replacement, at times, to stretching if you're a stretch-first person.2,3 In a dynamic warm-up, you take important joints such as your hips, shoulders, and lower back through complete ranges of motion, using large muscle groups for support. Dynamic warm-up activities are similar to core strengthening exercises and have unique names such as scorpion, hip crossover, drop lunge, and quad circles. You can mix-and-match a variety of dynamic warm-up activities on different workout days, creating ongoing interest that helps you maintain your exercise routine.
A dynamic cool-down can serve as a similar supplement or replacement to stretching, at times, if you're a stretch-after person. If you've been walking or running, rather than simply completing your walk or run, spend an additional few minutes walking or running with shorter strides and/or at a slower pace. Walking backward at a slow pace is another method for achieving a dynamic cool-down. If you've been lifting weights, a series of deep-knee lunges will stretch your lower back and hips. A yoga-style downward dog will lengthen your spine, hamstrings, and calf muscles. Moving your arms through big circles, both clockwise and counterclockwise, will open up your shoulder girdles and lengthen the muscles of your rotator cuffs.Regardless of the method you choose, stretching is an important part of your regular exercise activities. The extra few minutes spent either warming up or cooling down will help you maintain your exercise program achieve long-term health and well-being.

There’s an intelligent alternative to Surgical Liposuction now available in Elk Grove and it is called i-Lipo. Banker Chiropractic is the first office in the Sacramento area utilizing the i-Lipo Therapeutic Laser. i-Lipo has become the Gold Standard in body shaping and fat reduction in Europe over the last four years. i-Lipo is a non-invasive, pain free, drug free body sculpting and fat reduction system that targets stubborn fat areas and provides immediate, and long lasting measurable results. Scientifically proven and FDA approved, i-Lipo gets rid of stubborn fatty areas that won’t go away through diet or exercise alone. It is an easy, safe and comfortable way to achieve inch loss and body contouring with no pain, no needles and no downtime.
How does i-Lipo work?
The i-Lipo laser focuses a specific energy into the fat layer which stimulates the cells to 1) convert their stored
triglycerides into fatty acids and glycerol. And 2) Open pores in the fat cell‘s outer membrane which allows these smaller molecules to leak out into the adjacent tissues. The fat cells then lose their round shape and
collapse, much like a grape changing into a raisin. The released contents are then absorbed by the lymphatic system and transported around the body to be burned as energy. The i-Lipo laser creates the same, natural, metabolic process as the brain does when the body needs energy by converting and releasing
the fat cells contents. i-Lipo triggers this natural mechanism and can target a specific problem area almost anywhere on the body. Light cardio exercise, post treatment, accelerates the burning of the released fatty acids and glycerol. Banker Chiropractic will develop a specific work out plan for you which can be done on site with our doctor.
The i-Lipo system has many advantages that other invasive and noninvasive fat reduction systems cannot
offer. Ultrasound imagery shows up to 30% reduction in the fat layer depth after just one treatment. Compared to Surgical Liposuction, i-Lipo is much more affordable and produces similar results. i-Lipo is painless and safe. It can be used on men and women, and on all skin types. The Client can return to normal activity immediately after each treatment. A 2-4 cm loss in abdomen circumference can be achieved with every treatment. A course of 9 treatments is recommended over 3 weeks with 3 treatments per week. Fat under the chin, upper arms, abdomen, hips or thighs can be broken down and removed. This is a big advantage over diet and exercise alone which can reduce overall body fat but not target individual areas.
i-Lipo is available exclusively at Banker Chiropractic in Elk Grove, CA.

As Elk Grove continues to grow more and more medical services are becoming available in town meaning we don’t have to always drive to Sacramento for treatments………There are several examples with the Sutter Health Surgical Center on Laguna Blvd along with the new Dignity Health Medical Center (and planned
hospital) just south of Elk Grove Blvd leading the way and now there’s another……..Dr. Dennis Banker, who’s been providing chiropractic service in Elk Grove for more than 20 years, is teaming up with Dr. Mark Emerson, DC, CCSP to provide treatment to help fight the aging process with “I-Lipo by Chromogenex……..I-Lipo is a non-invasive, no pain, no surgery advanced laser body shaping treatment------it can tighten skin, reduce cellulite and contour bodies in hard to lose areas like the abdomen, thighs, butt, chin, and upper arms…….In
simple terms it works like this-----instead of inserting a surgical tool and drawing the entire fat cell out of the body the I-Lipo targets the fat cell and breaks it down dispersing the fatty contents but leaving the cell in
place-----the patient then exercises vigorously immediately after the treatment to burn off what’s just been released into their body…….It’s a treatment Dr. Emerson has been offering guests at the Maui Four Seasons Hotel for some time and now it’s available in Elk Grove…….There will be an informational presentation later this month in Elk Grove-----more on that in the next week-----but if you can’t wait check out Dr. Banker’s website for more http://www.bankerchiropractic.com/i-lipo.html
Imagine a non-invasive, pain free way to shape your body, getting rid of the troublesome fat on the abdomen, chin, arms and thighs. i-Lipo was developed in England in 2008 after research studies showed that low-level lasers stimulated the fat cells into releasing their contents, allowing for the shrinking of the adipose (fat) layer. This creates the ability to sculpt your body and specifically target certain areas.
No surgeons or doctors
No surgeons and doctors are required because there is simply no surgery involved, it’s totally non invasive, compared to traditional liposuction, which is extremely invasive, even with smartlipo there’s a small incision.
No scaring, bruising, soreness or bleeding
As i-Lipo is completely non invasive you will not have in the after effects of traditional liposuction including, scars, soreness, bleeding and discomfort.
You will not have to have any type of anesthesia at all, general or local, since there is no surgery involved, with no pain will be felt, unlike traditional liposuction in which you have to have a general anesthetic and even
with smartlipo you ‘must’ have a local anesthetic, so there isn’t any risks that can be associated with any kind of anesthetic.
No down time
With i-Lipo you’re liberated to execute your normal activities immediately after the procedure, while there is no pain or discomfort at all, unlike traditional liposuction in which you must rest for a long time. Even with smart
lipo you need a few days to recuperate.
No risk of infection
As there is no incision with i-Lipo there is absolutely no risk of infection, in comparison to traditional liposuction which can be very invasive and so widens the chance of infections.
More areas can be treated
i-Lipo offers more number of parts of the body that can be treated with i-Lipo as the lasers used are extremely accurate and targets certain fat cells without harming the surrounding areas and thus can be used on even the most sensitive and thinnest of areas. Traditional liposuction is significantly too invasive for sensitive areas of the body.
Tightens skin and reduces cellulite
i-Lipo has got the great advantage of tightening your skin and reducing cellulite, traditional liposuction doesn’t possess this great advantage and actually leaves your skin saggy after the procedure has been performed.
i-Lipo is quicker
One treatment with i-Lipo takes only 20 minutes, compared to traditional liposuction which takes a few hours for the procedure being performed.
i-Lipo is cheaper
i-Lipo is significantly cheaper than liposuction as well as other laser and ultrasound techniques, and offers similar results.
No after care
You will not need any follow up appointments with i-Lipo because there is no surgery with no wounds involved that have to be checked.
