Tune Up for Summer with Chiropractic: Physical Benefits
By The Joint Chiropractic
Sweet summertime. It’s right around the corner. Do you remember the excitement that summer brought when you were a child? As adults it’s just not quite the same. Instead of the joy of being out of school and staying up late at night, it is more of an alarm signaling us to be in shape and ready to show off our bodies … or at least hope to.
Over the next three months, people will be dieting, working out and planning vacations to sun-filled destinations. With springtime upon us, it’s never too early to start disciplining ourselves physically, and now is the time to tune up for summer with chiropractic. You never want to put anything off until the last minute, especially when it comes to your health. It’s often said that staying in shape is easier than getting in shape. While there is truth to this statement, staying in shape takes work. Exercise, eating right and doing all the right things are only as effective as our willingness to continue the journey. Bodies don’t get out of shape overnight and they don’t change back overnight. That’s why, if you’re looking to show off a beach body this summer, you should be thinking about it now rather than later. Play in a rec softball league during summer? Coach Little League or your kid’s soccer team? Chiropractic can help.
So, what can be accomplished in three months? Three months, or 90 days, is depicted as a standard time frame for positively changing habits and eventually lifestyles. With summer only three months away, you should begin tuning up your body in multiple ways, one of which is with regular chiropractic care. Chiropractic can help you physically in more ways than just pain relief. Let’s take a look at just a few of the ways getting adjusted can help propel your body closer toward the goal of performing at your peak.
Regular chiropractic adjustments can improve nervous system function, which can enhance:
- Your performance at work
- Your relationships through experiencing a healthier, more active lifestyle
- Your body’s ability to digest and assimilate foods better, leading to more effective weight loss (less stress means less cortisol production)
- Your overall attitude and sunny outlook on life by feeling good, naturally
When you look better, you have more confidence. When you have more confidence, you improve your output. It’s just that simple. With time being our greatest asset, we all want to make the best of every moment. Whether it’s your job, your family or other obligations, the demands of life seem to pull at you in every direction. You don’t want any barriers preventing you from getting into great shape, regardless of what they may be. Tuning up for summer starts with putting your health first. Most people take better care of their automobiles than they do their own bodies. They have regular tune-ups, oil changes and, if a warning light indicates a problem, they go directly to the mechanic to find out the cause. Something as simple as sitting or standing all day can cause stress to your spine and extremities. 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 immune system can suffer. Your health can suffer. Your ability to lose weight effectively can suffer. Your job performance can suffer. Your relationships and, eventually, your lifestyle can suffer.
How Chiropractic Can Help
Regular chiropractic adjustments can reduce muscle tension, frequently producing a decrease in stress-related conditions. 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. This interruption can affect the cells, tissues and organs of the body many times inhibiting your performance, creating pain and discomfort. 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.
Don’t allow the barrier of restricted joints to prevent you from obtaining your physical goals any longer. Make chiropractic a part of your wellness lifestyle and 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 are experiencing the benefits of routine chiropractic care. They are learning that chiropractic makes a much better vitamin than it does an aspirin. Tune up for summertime. Discover how millions of Americans have not only found relief from pain, but also a pathway to wellness that has led to a healthier, more active lifestyle.
