Need a Boost? See Your Chiropractor and Get Outdoors
By Sandy Schroeder
About this time every year, I get the urge to be outside more and more. My plants are responding to the sun and rain, and I am eager to just sit in the sun and rally from a tedious winter. Lately I have been too busy to be out there very much, and I can really tell the difference.
If you can relate, you may want to consider getting more outdoor time and learning how your local chiropractor can help you achieve wellness.

Talk with your chiropractor about your aches and pains, plans to be outside, and health history. Gentle targeted adjustments may provide pain relief and a sense of well-being. You may have more energy, more alertness, or sleep better. Benefits are unique to each person.
Weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments may be just the right platform to work on daily routines and include a lot of outdoor time.
A brief walk before breakfast, some meditation time outside after lunch, and a walk with the dog and the kids after work may refresh your mind and your body.

You may sleep better - Researchers say additional exposure to sunlight outside may improve your ability to fall asleep and stay asleep.
You may see better - When you focus on details and documents a lot, your eyes may welcome a change. When you go outside you exercise your eyes as you look up at the sky or sweep across the landscape.
You may feel less pain - Researchers have shown surgical patients who have windows with views of trees tend to recover faster. Plants and flowers at the hospital, and later at home, can be a small outdoor dose of therapy.
