Time to Do Some Blue Skies Summer Dreaming
By Sandy Schroeder
As the seasons change, it’s fun to look ahead and picture lazy afternoons by the pool or great camping, hiking or biking trips. Sometimes plans surge forward, but often they need help to get off of the ground.
That’s where your local chiropractor may be able to help at The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you. Bring the whole family in to start off on the right sneaker with a health, wellness and fitness checkup that covers lifestyle, current aches and pains and health history.
Seeing Your Chiropractor
Your chiropractor will explain how good spinal health can improve overall health. The spine houses the central nervous system that serves as the body’s communication network. When that system works well, so does the body.
A gentle targeted spinal adjustment may provide relief for aches and pain, and generate a fresh sense of well-being. Patients often report better sleep, more energy, and more calmness. Weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments may be the plan to help everyone in your family feel better as they work on individual issues.
Kids’ issues - This may be a good time to compare video game/TV/phone time with outdoor time for hiking, biking, and swimming
Teens - Hours spent on phones and the accompanying digital hunch posture may be contrasted with more outdoor activities and summer sports
Spouses - Tips for handling all new family summer schedules and fielding stress may be needed
Seniors - Keeping your senior family members in the loop can be crucial as it helps them maintain their balance and move more.
Time for you - Revamping a work schedule to insert daily breaks for walking, jogging, or running may be the way to go. Adding in weekends for more family trips and outings might be next.
I have watched many families follow this path. Some had weight issues with too much junk food, and too few healthy dinners. Others had serious time issues in which parents and kids sailed past each other with overloaded schedules. Often their family chiropractor jumped in as the ongoing contact for health, wellness and fitness. Monitoring each adult and child for individual issues on a regular basis made a difference.
If this sounds like a way for your family to head into summer, stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you to find the best package or plan for personal healthcare that requires no insurance. Clinics are open on weekends and evenings, and walk-in visits are welcome. No appointments are needed.
