Every Day Should Celebrate Men’s Health (Not Just June)
By Sara Butler
It’s National Men’s Health Month -- which means it’s time for all you boys and men out there to put your health first and consider a few of the preventable health problems men deal with. Don’t worry, this isn’t something you have to do alone! The chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic are your partners in health and wellness and they have a few chiropractic tips that can help you celebrate your health this month and beyond!
Joseph Pilates (yes, that Pilates) said, “A man is as young as his spinal column.” We totally feel you, Joe.
At The Joint, the chiropractors want to help you find your own version of the fountain of youth by keeping your spinal column, along with the rest of you, healthy. They don’t accomplish this with fashionable clothes, a new haircut, or even the mid-life crisis earring (we’re looking at you, Harrison Ford), but with hands-on chiropractic care.
For decades, men have been led to believe that back pain was just par for the aging course. We know today that’s not true at all. While your body may not function at 52 as it did at 22, pain is never an acceptable state of being. That’s why the chiropractors at The Joint find joint restrictions and dysfunctions that may be causing pain and discomfort and address them, helping your body to work at its very best. That keeps your spine -- and the rest of you -- feeling young and pain-free.
Reduce Your Risk
National Men’s Health Month is also about awareness. So, how aware are you of the common health problems experienced by men?
Wellness care at The Joint Chiropractic is about more than simply helping relieve your aches and pains, it’s also about helping your body to work optimally. Chiropractic care, along with a healthy diet and regular exercise, can help you reduce your chances of certain conditions, such as:
- Heart disease
- Certain types of cancer such as colon cancer
These conditions impact the lives of millions of men in America, but you don’t have to count yourself among them. And you can count on the chiropractor to help with that!
If the last time you had a good night’s sleep was sometime around July 27, 1998, then I hate to break it to you, but you’re in trouble. Quality sleep is crucial to your health and wellness -- and something the chiropractor can help you with!
Many issues related to sleep can be traced back to stress or pain, or maybe a combination of both -- although babies are also a real sleep-killer. The chiropractors at The Joint can’t come to your house at 3 a.m. to get your baby back to sleep, but they can help to improve the quality of your sleep by helping you address the pain that might be stealing it from you. They can also help to alleviate stress by helping your body to function optimally. Once pain and stress are removed from the equation, the rest is up to you -- literally.
Take Care of Yourself
You’re not a set of symptoms or joint dysfunctions, you’re someone who’s simply trying to get through life the best you can. Don’t let your health issues snowball into bigger ones, but face them head-on with the chiropractor by your side.
Honor National Men’s Health Month this June by paying attention to how you feel and listening to what your body is trying to tell you. If you’re having pain, discomfort, or you’re simply not feeling like yourself, then talk to the chiropractors at The Joint today.
