Currency of Health: What’s Preventing You From Getting Ahead?

By The Joint Corp.

Everyday Stress

Look around you. Seems like everything these days revolves around our careers. Promotions, raises, work experience, they all play a significant role in getting ahead. Money is an important part of life, no doubt. It is our major form of currency. You exchange money for something you want at a fair value agreed upon by both parties. The desire for financial security is fine as long as you don’t lose sight of the reason you need the money in the first place. Keeping your priorities straight can be difficult at times, especially while in hot pursuit of the almighty dollar.”Keeping up with the Joneses” wasn’t born out of a race down the highway.

People sacrifice their bodies every day chasing money only to be willing to give it all up in the end if they could only regain their health. That’s kind of like putting the wagon before the horse. Regardless of what you desire to achieve, the thing that will prevent you from getting ahead more than anything is your inability to perform at your peak. You want to feel good, look good and be your best. Making your health a priority is the key to living a productive life of activity, fulfillment and joy.

There are so many things in life you have no control over. Although you don’t have total control of your health, you do have a major influence in doing the right thing today to increase the odds of reaping the benefits tomorrow. Diet, exercise, adequate sleep, proper nutrition … they all play a preventative role in promoting good health.

Your job and the burning desire to have more can cause unhealthy stress on your body. This stress can cause joint restrictions, otherwise known as “joint dysfunctions” or “subluxations,” many times without you even knowing it. When spinal joints become 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. Your job suffers and ultimately, your lifestyle suffers.

Chiropractic care rarely causes discomfort and reduces muscle tension, often producing a decrease in stress-related conditions. It’s difficult to concentrate on anything else when you are in pain. Symptoms such as pain and discomfort manifest as your body’s way of telling you something is wrong. Masking that pain and discomfort will only provide temporary relief. For every cause there is an effect. Likewise, for every symptom there has to be a cause.

How Chiropractic Can Help You Get Ahead

Regular chiropractic care has been shown to produce reparative and preventative benefits in the body. When one or more joints become restricted in the spine, it causes a lack of motion that, in turn, can cause an interruption of the nerve communication from the brain to the body. Since the central nervous system controls and coordinates every cell, tissue and organ of the body, this interruption can inhibit your health and ultimately your performance and productivity. Licensed doctors of chiropractic (such as those at The Joint Chiropractic), referred to as DCs, apply a gentle, targeted movement to the restricted joints to improve motion of the body’s spinal column and extremities, thereby enhancing nerve function. This highly controlled procedure is known as a chiropractic adjustment.

Routine chiropractic care can result in increased daily activity. By improving joint mobility, your physical performance and overall function are positively affected, thereby helping you feel good enough to regain the motivation to get things done.

What is keeping you from getting ahead? Consider the fact that if it’s not time, then perhaps it’s your health. Have your spine checked for joint dysfunctions. Whether suffering from pain or not, keeping your body functioning at its peak may be one of the best investments you will ever make. More and more people just like you are learning that chiropractic makes a much better vitamin than it does an aspirin. Don’t hold back any longer. Discover how millions of Americans have not only found relief from pain, but also a pathway to wellness and a healthier, more active lifestyle by making chiropractic part of their healthy habit regimen.
