Let Chiropractic Guide You During March Observances
By Brandi Goodman
The month of March sees numerous health observances -- the same as any month of the year. Things such as Nutrition Month, Kidney Month, and more take up the duration of the 31 days available. To help you make the most of these occasions, let chiropractic guide you.
Chiropractic Encourages Healthy Eating
Sure, the primary goal of your chiropractic visit may be to get an adjustment that relieves tension in your body. That doesn't mean additional guidance won't be provided. During Nutrition Month especially -- but also any other time of year -- your chiropractor will encourage you to eat healthily. Certain foods are great for joint health, after all. Add salmon, oatmeal, cherries, peppers, and kale to your diet for some of the best benefits for your joints.
Chiropractic Helps Your Kidneys
Chiropractic care can benefit your kidneys, which is especially great to know for March's Kidney Month. Part of the problem with weakened kidneys is poor circulation. Hardened arteries in the area make it difficult for blood and oxygen to flow through. If the kidneys cannot pump out filtered blood the way they need to, then your body remains full of harmful toxins. Correcting joint restrictions can better help blood to flow and your circulation to work as intended.
Kidney problems can also cause pain. Sometimes, you may experience lower back pain because of it. Getting chiropractic to help relieve some of the tension in the area can help.
Chiropractic Lessens Pain From Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month also arrives in March. No, chiropractic cannot cure the disease -- nor can it treat the various symptoms. What chiropractic care can do is help to lessen some of the pain that arises. Many people with MS report feeling sore and weak. Coordination is impaired. Chiropractic helps to ease some of the tension in the body and restore some of that coordination. You may feel a little less sore and weak after an adjustment. A physical therapist will often recommend certain exercises to help experience relief. It can be easier to accomplish those exercises after a chiropractic adjustment that gets you a little more stable on your feet.
