The Benefits of Using a ROM Machine in Chiropractic Care
Range of motion (ROM) is an important factor in overall health and wellness. Having good ROM
can help you move more freely, reduce the risk of injury, and improve your quality of life. One
tool that chiropractors use to improve ROM is a ROM machine. In this blog post, we'll explore
what a ROM machine is and how it can benefit your chiropractic care.
What are the Benefits of Using a ROM Machine in Chiropractic Care?ROM 4 Minute Workout Crosstrainer Time MachineThe revolutionary Four Minute Workout is the most time effective aerobic workout ever developed. It is built around the innovative ROM Machine which allows to cut back effective workout time to just 4 minutes. The extended range of motion - ROM - cleverly used by this machine under automatically adjusted resistance allows to cut back effective exercise time to the incredible four minutes. In addition ROM Machine counteracts our natural tendency to contract and shrink with age and helps to elongate muscles. In one 4 minute workout, the ROM machine will give you 3 workouts in one: a strengthening workout, a cardio workout and a flexibility workout.
YOU WILL BUILD MUSCLE TO LOSE FATA lot of focus nowadays is put on weight loss. Diets and exercise programs promise to shed weight quickly. However, the key to lasting weight loss is building muscle.
With ROM machine, we like to focus on fat loss, not weight loss. If you lose weight quickly, you are most likely also losing muscle tissue. This is the biggest reason for yo-yo weight loss and gain: if you lose muscle when trying to shed fat, you are also decreasing your metabolism, which is why the fat comes back so easily.
The ROM machine will help you build muscle, which increases your metabolism and leads to increased fat burning, and long lasting fat loss.
OUR ROM MACHINE PROVIDES A GREAT CARDIO WORKOUTIt will promote the improvement (or maintenance) of the cardiovascular system. The increased heart rate you have during your workout will improve your heart and lungs. Your heart will pump more blood with fewer beats and your lungs will transport more oxygen with less effort.
Erroneously, cardio and aerobics have become somewhat synonymous in exercise vernacular, and many think that it is necessary to do aerobic exercise (any activity that is performed at a low to moderate intensity for more than 90 seconds, allowing oxygen to release energy through metabolism) to get cardiovascular benefits.
However, anaerobic exercise (any activity that is performed at a medium to high intensity for a short duration where energy is derived without oxygen) will also increase cardiovascular function. So you definitely will get cardiovascular benefits through high-intensity, short duration workouts. You don't need to spend hours every week on a treadmill or stationary cycle to improve your cardiovascular function, just four minutes a day on the ROM machine will give you cardio benefits.
THE ROM MACHINE ALSO PROVIDES STRETCHING AND FLEXIBILITYFlexibility is defined as the allowed range of motion at any given joint throughout the skeletal and muscular structures. Along with the noticeable increase in physical performance, high flexibility also increases the blood flow and nutrient supply to the muscles during sustained physical activity. The workouts on the ROM machine put you through a larger range of motion than most traditional workouts, thus increasing your flexibility.There are many benefits to using a ROM machine in chiropractic care, including:●Improved range of motion - By using a ROM machine, you can gradually increase your range of motion in the joints, which can help to reduce pain and stiffness.●Faster recovery - ROM machines can be used to help speed up the recovery process after an injury, by improving circulation and promoting healing.●Targeted treatment - ROM machines can be adjusted to target specific joints or areas of the body, allowing for targeted treatment of specific conditions.●Reduced pain - By improving range of motion and promoting healing, ROM machines can help to reduce pain in the joints and surrounding muscles.●Non-invasive - ROM machines are a non-invasive treatment option that can be used inconjunction with other chiropractic treatments to provide a holistic approach to care.
With the right combination of decompression, adjustments and exercise, you can achieve optimal health and get back to living your best life.If you're interested in improving your range of motion and overall health and wellness, give us aCall text or email or call with any questions or to request an appointment to talk with us about incorporating a ROM machine as a regular exercise routine.
