In the Boardroom, Stand Tall with Chiropractic

If you own a business, run an office or manage employees who look to you for guidance, leadership and game-winning decisions -- whether it’s the boardroom, conference room or lunchroom -- you have to be on top of your game. You can't afford to be anything less than your best. Every day. That might mean making key changes to your lifestyle, including the addition of chiropractic care that will bring out your best in ways you may not have imagined. One new healthy habit, such as visiting a chiropractor, could put you over the top.

Your people – your employees, shareholders and stakeholders – are watching your every move. How well you perform among your colleagues will have a direct impact on their acceptance and perception of what you represent. We all want to make a good impression and perform at our peak. Regardless of how large or small a project is, pain or discomfort can cause you to cut corners and lose that commanding edge that is so important when making a presentation to your constituents. The way you stand, your posture, how you feel, the look of confidence on your face … it’s all related to the health and integrity of your spine.

Normal daily activities such as sitting, standing, bending, reaching and lifting can cause stress to your lower extremities. This stress can cause back pain and discomfort resulting from joint dysfunctions, otherwise known as “subluxations,” many times without you even knowing it. When spinal joints become dysfunctional, meaning they are restricted in movement, the rest of the body can be affected in ways you never thought possible. Normal nerve communication is inhibited. Your health suffers. Daily activities are affected. Your lifestyle changes. Symptoms such as pain and discomfort manifest as your body’s way of telling you something is wrong. For every cause there is an effect. Likewise, for every symptom there has to be a cause.

Masking the pain only provides temporary relief. If your car overheated, would you pull over and paint the red warning light black or would you look for the cause of the problem? Obviously, you would look for the cause. Most people treat their cars better than they do their own bodies. Symptoms are warning signals. Ignoring those warnings can lead to more severe health issues down the road. Listening to them can prevent further problems from occurring.

Remember, the effects of physical stress are on top of the mental and emotional stress that comes from leading a business or overseeing a department. Don't compound it by being less than 100 percent. Nobody said achieving business success would be easy.

How Chiropractic Affects Performance and Overall Health

Your spinal column is made up of 24 independent vertebrae or segments allowing your body to move, twist and bend during everyday motion. It also protects the central nervous system that controls and coordinates every cell, tissue and organ of the body. Licensed doctors of chiropractic (such as those at The Joint Chiropractic), referred to as DCs, apply a gentle, targeted movement to restricted joints to improve motion of the body’s spinal column and extremities. This highly controlled procedure is known as a chiropractic adjustment.

Peak performance is something we all strive for but it doesn’t come without a price. It takes preparation. When opportunities arise we need to be prepared physically as well as mentally. Sometimes that one opportunity may be our last. We need to feel good. The better we feel, the better we look. The better we look, the more confident we are. The more confident we are, the better decisions we make and the more commanding our presence becomes. The more commanding we are, the better we perform and the more receptive others are to what we have to say. It only stands to reason that, if our joints are moving correctly and our nervous system is functioning properly, we will perform in a much higher capacity.
