Ready, Set, Go! Let Chiropractic Power Your New Year
By Sandy Schroeder
What are your goals for 2018? I want to make my yoga routine a daily habit, and drop 10 pounds.
Whatever your health and fitness resolutions are, The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you may be the best place to start. The Joint’s licensed chiropractors lead a wellness center that helps people of all ages deal with all of their goals and issues. Many people say it’s like turning a page.
Be prepared to get to know your chiropractor as you discuss your daily routine, any pain issues, and health history. Your chiropractor will explain how improving your spinal health could be the key to everything that you do. The spine encases the central nervous system that controls everything the body does. When it works better, you may, too.
A gentle, targeted spinal adjustment may relieve any aches or pains that you have, and open the door to better sleep, improved mental clarity, and more energy. Weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments could keep you at your peak, and become the staging area to make your new goals happen.
With your chiropractor’s help you can put your goals into play, such as hte following.
Fitness – Starting with a goal of 30 minutes of activity every day, you may find new ways to exercise outside, take short walks in the morning, noon and afternoon, or start the day 15 minutes early with new stretches or a yoga workout.
Diet – Turning healthy foods into savory meals that your family loves could start with your weekly shopping. Load your cart with fresh produce, lean meats, chicken, fish, nuts, whole grains and healthy oils and skip the pastries, chips and processed foods. Then look for new recipes on sites such as Epicurious.com, and plan some family suppers.
Work routines – Take a good look at your workspace. If you sit for hours every day you need a chair that provides good back support and a monitor positioned at eye level. Also take breaks every hour to walk, stretch or just unwind.
Posture – Is your posture working for you? Do you stand up straight and sit straight in your chair with your head centered over your spine? Or do you slump in your chair as you lean forward and move your head forward, too? Straighten up and keep all screens at eye levels.
When you are ready to make your health goals a reality, stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you. Find out about the affordable personal healthcare plans that require no insurance and the flexible weekend and evening hours. No appointments are needed. Walk-in visits are welcome.
