How Chiropractic Helps the Whole Family + Four Habits
When some people think of visiting a chiropractor, they associate chiropractic adjustments with pain relief instead of whole body wellness. You don’t have to be in pain to visit us. Did you know that only 10% of our spinal nerves detect pain? The beauty of chiropractic is that it can benefit the entire family, from infants to seniors.
Infants: When babies are born, the birthing process, even natural births, can be very 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, regulate the body, and improve nervous system function.
Seniors: 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.
Four Healthy Habits for a Happy Spine:
Exercise: Don’t be a couch potato! As little as 30 minutes of exercise per day isn’t just good for your heart and lungs, it’s great for your entire body’s function!
Laugh: 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.
Nutrients: When we eat healthy wholesome foods, we provide our body with the best fuel and energy that it needs and wants. A healthy diet high in vegetables (especially leafy greens) can help our body better accommodate stress and allow our nervous system to function optimally.
Get Adjusted: Getting adjusted regularly can help keep you and your family happy and healthy!
