Take Care of Your Spine Every Day!
By Donna Stark
Did you celebrate World Spine Day last October? That's great if you did, but one day alone isn't enough to show your spine some love. You need to incorporate spine-friendly habits into all the other days of the year too. And with the year we have all just had, it's even more important to make sure that happens! Effective care of your spine can help alleviate muscle pain and discomfort, reduce the risk of joint dysfunction and disease, and improve your overall well-being and quality of life. But what exactly are "spine-friendly" habits? Well, your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic have a few suggestions. Take a look at them below.
If you aren't stretching and exercising at least 30 minutes a day, you could potentially be missing out on many different health benefits for your spine. Daily stretching can help ease tension, relieve stress, and improve your flexibility, range of motion, and posture, while exercising can strengthen the supporting muscles and improve joint function. In addition, exercise can reduce your risk of serious medical issues, such as heart disease, diabetes, certain cancers, and joint dysfunction.
Yes, you can eat for your back! Vegetables, such as broccoli, kale, and spinach, help to fight inflammation and contain nutrients that will help strengthen your spine. Fatty fish, such as salmon and tuna, contain omega-3 fatty acids which also help to fight inflammation and promote bone and tissue health. Dairy products contain calcium which we all know is good for bone health, and certain fruits, like berries, are packed with antioxidants and nutrients that will help your spine stay healthy.
Your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic are trained to provide customized care and knowledgeable advice that will help you maintain optimal spinal health and well-being. The precise adjustments they provide place your body back in proper alignment and target the underlying issues that are causing problems with your health. By establishing routine chiropractic care, you can look forward to reduced pain, increased mobility, and improved health and wellness.
