Chiropractic Lends a Hand
Your chiropractor will start where you are, reviewing your daily routine and health history.
- You may need pain relief from back, neck, knee or other joints
- You and your spouse may need an energy boost
- Your kids may need to get outside more
- You may all need ongoing regular support
Your chiropractor will use a focus on spinal health to find the answers that fit you. The central nervous system that keeps us humming from morning until night is encased in the spine. When the spine is healthy, we probably are too: We may sleep better, feel more energetic and think more clearly.
A gentle targeted spinal adjustment may relieve pain and generate a fresh sense of well-being. Weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments may keep the pain away and provide a focus point to work on individual issues for everyone. Your chiropractor can provide an ongoing source of support to monitor progress, catch any new developments, and provide preventive tips for health and safety.
Keep weight under control - If everybody in your family looks like they just gained 10 pounds, the seasonal treats may be taking their toll. Add more fruits, veggies, and nuts, and subtract the cookies, chips, and pastries.
Get fit outdoors - Kids and parents need time to enjoy being outside. Walks before breakfast or after dinner with the dog could bookend the day. Keep weekends moving with hiking or biking. Make room for choices like basketball, soccer, or water sports.
Keep everyone mellow - All of the holiday excitement and pressure of school events may call for stress outlets. Make time for quiet talks before bedtime and enjoy sit down dinners without electronics. Decompress with yoga, meditation, tai chi, crafts or hobbies.
Keep everyone in the loop - Look for ways to stay in touch at your house. Post individual schedules on a family bulletin board, and set aside time for family meetings to sort out daily issues and plan weekend events.
