Doctor-Approved Activities to Promote Post-Accident Healing

Depending on the severity of the accident, it can take your body anywhere from a few days to a few months to fully recover from the damages and injuries. Chiropractic care and physical therapy are a great step in the right direction, but there are many at-home activities you can pair with your sessions to speed up the healing process. Here are a few activities approved by the experts at Impact Medical Miami.


Perhaps the most simple and accessible activity that most people can take part in is walking. Even if it’s just around the block, you can help your body in a number of ways just by getting up and moving your feet. Depending on your personal condition and physical limits, you can adapt your outing by adjusting your speed and distance to challenge your body at just the right amount. Walking helps your body after your visit to the chiropractor by:

  • Circulating your blood
  • Promoting muscle movement
  • Building on muscle strength
  • Maintaining physical endurance

Walking upwards either by stairs or hills is a great way to further challenge yourself and shape up your body. All of these methods prove that you don’t need to run a marathon as long as you’re creative enough to spice up your walk.

Practicing Good Posture

Most people suffer from poor posture and it’s a major reason why the results of chiropractic care aren’t able to reach their full potential. No matter how many times you visit your chiropractor, continuing to slouch every time you sit will negate or even reverse your efforts. It can be especially difficult to maintain good posture after enduring an accident, but being aware of your body and taking gradual steps to better yourself will be worth it.


Regular yoga sessions can help with your posture and assist your body by other means. Yoga involves focusing on your body from the inside out so you can become aware of how you feel in certain areas. For example, you’re more likely to notice a tightness in your shoulder so you can perform stretches to loosen up that specific area. The stillness and mindfulness that comes with yoga can help relax your body and get in the stretches that you need to ensure full healing after seeing a chiropractor.


Meditation usually comes side-by-side with yoga practices and is incredibly beneficial to your mental health which has a domino effect on your physical health. By dedicating a moment of peace and quiet to reflect on how you feel in both mind and body, you’ll be nurturing your mental health thus reducing stress which can help you loosen your muscles. There’s a great list of different meditation types, but simply focusing on your breathing is a great place to start and is still very effective.


Believe it or not, what you eat has a great impact on your healing journey after receiving chiropractic care. Eating sugary or processed foods can flare up pain and inflammation and the increased weight of taking in too many calories can wear on your spine. Your diet should consist of nutrient-rich foods that can help different aspects of your body and pave the way for smooth healing.

Sometimes, it’s what you don’t do that can help you. Exercising and stretching in moderation are essential to coaxing your body back into shape after an accident, but resting is just as important. Your body needs time to process all of the work that’s done through a full night’s sleep. Your body won’t be able to fully recover if you don’t give it the time to do so.
