How Chiropractic Helps the Whole Family

When some people think of visiting a chiropractor, they associate chiropractic adjustments with pain relief instead of whole body wellness. But you don’t have to be in pain to visit us. In fact, the beauty of chiropractic is that it can benefit the entire family – from infants to seniors. Here’s how:

Babies: When babies are born, the birthing process – even so-called “natural” – can be traumatic on their spine. Newborns often benefit from care after birth to ensure proper spinal alignment.

Adults: The wear and tear of daily life can cause a number of problems in adults, from posture issues to too much bodily stress and many things in between. Chiropractic adjustments can help calm stressors and regulate the body.

Senior Citizens: Many older patients find adjustments and care to not only help them feel better than they ever have before, but also help improve balance and equilibrium to diminish falls.

Three Resolution Ideas for a Healthy Spine

It’s that time again—the beginning of the New Year when resolutions are in full swing. We’d like to take the time to wish our patients a healthy and happy New Year and offer a few resolutions you can make to help keep your spine functioning at its best this year.

Exercise daily. Don’t be a couch potato in 2017 — as little as 30 minutes of exercise a day isn’t just good for your heart, it’s great for your entire body.

Laugh often. Did you know that laughter can stimulate your muscles, lungs and heart? It’s also a fantastic stress reliever, and when you’re experiencing less stress, you have a better chance of experiencing whole body wellness.

Visit our practice. Let us help keep you and your family happy and healthy in 2017 and for many years to come!

Four Foods to Keep You Young

You’re never too old to start eating right and taking care of your body from the inside out. Try to incorporate these four foods to help keep your mind and body on the upside of life.

• Apples — they help keep your digestive system going strong.

• Ginger — for aches and pains, ginger is packed full of powerful antioxidants to help fight inflammation and hurt muscles.

• Cherry juice — we need sleep on our side to function optimally into our golden years. If you’re having trouble getting to bed and staying asleep, opt for cherry juice in the evening as it has melatonin in it.

• Spinach — full of magnesium, spinach can help maintain nerve function and regulate blood sugar.

If you’re wondering what else you can do to keep your body feeling young, give us a call.
