The Choices Your Chiropractors Hate

By Donna Stark

How many bad choices have you made throughout your lifetime? And how have those choices affected your life? I think it is fair to say that at some point or another, most of us have crossed over into the "bad choices" territory one too many times and many of us have suffered some pretty significant consequences by doing so. Bad choices seem to be a part of everybody's life, don't they? But it's the ones that we make day in and day out that can really impact our future health and lives. Want to know what they are? Well, your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic can certainly name a few!

The Choices Your Chiropractors Hate

From joint pain to compromised immune systems to serious injuries, your local chiropractors have seen it all! And truth be told, most of it never even had to happen because a lot of it could have been prevented with wiser lifestyle choices! Let's take a look at a few of them here.

  • Get moving - There are plenty of bad choices out there when it comes to your health and wellness, but sitting tops the list. Prolonged sitting has been shown to increase back pain, muscle degeneration, and the risk of serious medical conditions, such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and deep-vein thrombosis. If you find that you are more sedentary than you are mobile during the day, start making better choices. Get up and move every 30 minutes or so, take a walk, or do some of your work standing.
  • Wake up and stretch - Sometimes, age is not our friend. Our muscles become tighter and less flexible, and as a result, the risk of injuries increases. But you can counteract that risk by starting your morning off with some light stretching. Stretching just a few minutes each day can significantly impact your future health and wellness.
  • Address pain promptly - Another bad choice that we often make is that we ignore what our body is trying to tell us. That pain in your knee that sprang up out of nowhere? That's not normal, and neither is that back pain that keeps you awake each night. What may seem like a minor inconvenience now can easily turn into a serious health issue later, so don't ignore the message and seek help from your local chiropractor as soon as possible.
