Chiropractic Care for a Healthy Holiday Season
By Donna Stark
There are only a few weeks left in the year and your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic want to bestow two wishes on you. The first one is a wish for a most joyous and festive holiday season. The second one is that your holidays will end on a memorable note, and by memorable, your chiropractors are not talking about you getting invited to the party of the decade. Instead, they are talking about you making it through the season in the healthiest shape of your life, which is actually quite easy if you take care of your spine with regular chiropractic adjustments and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Take a look at how you can survive the holidays in great health!
Decorating Your Home
When lifting those heavy bins from the garage or carrying the tree from your car, pay attention to how you use your body! Bend at your knees, let your leg muscles do most of the work, avoid any unnecessary twists or turns, make sure your pathway is clear, and ask for help if you need it! This certainly isn't the time of year where you would want to be stuck at home and in pain.
Hallmark movie marathons, football games, holiday music specials ... it is easy to find yourself sitting for hours while enjoying time with the family, but don't forget to get up and move your back and legs. Sitting down for long periods can put added stress and strain on your spine and can cause your joints to become stiff.
Consuming Spine-Friendly Foods
Did you know there are certain foods you can eat that will benefit your spine? Well, it turns out there are, and you should definitely incorporate them into your holiday menus! So the next time you are at the store, throw some kale, broccoli, spinach, avocados, berries, salmon, and dairy products into your cart. They all promote healthy bone structure and growth.
If you want to live with optimal wellness, you need to keep your spine as healthy as possible! Regular chiropractic care can alleviate pain, reduce stress, boost your immune system, and improve the quality of sleep you get. There is no easier way to start feeling better and healthier!
Make Your Wishes Come True
If your wish is the same as your local chiropractors' wish for you, start making the necessary changes to your lifestyle to make it come true! With the simple tips above and routine chiropractic care at The Joint Chiropractic, you will be sure to end the year on a healthy, safe, and happy note!
