The Chiropractor's Tips: How to Stay Well
By Genevieve Cunningham
Staying well should be the goal of everyone, and for most people, it’s definitely high on the priority list. But many people, even though they have the desire to be healthy, aren’t really sure how to get started. There is so much information out there, and much of it contradicts each other. Where on earth do we even begin? If you’re interested in living a healthier life, take a look at these tips that come straight from a knowledgeable source -- the local chiropractor.
Maintain an Exercise Routine
Exercise is an incredible way to boost the body’s strength and overall health. No matter what kind of exercise you enjoy -- walking, running, boxing, swimming -- it’s all designed to get you in better shape. But the tough part, as well as the most beneficial part, is not the act of exercising but rather the ability to maintain a regular routine. To do this, don’t overcommit yourself. Start with just a few days per week and just a few minutes per workout. As you get used to the new routine, you can add more to the mix. Stick with it, and you’ll soon notice body and health changes that simply can’t be beat.
Stay Off Your Phone
We all love our precious phones. From instant knowledge to text messaging to app after app, we can’t help but be slightly addicted to this little piece of technology. But constant phone use has caused a significant decrease in health. Chiropractors have seen a decline in posture, which leads to back and neck pain as well as literal curvature of the spine. Excessive phone use also leads to an increase in the amount of time spent sitting, which brings with it its own set of health problems -- weight gain, immobility, blood pressure issues, and more. To negate these effects, limit the time spent staring at the screen, and get up and move instead.
Make Preventative Visits a Habit
It’s probably not a secret that chiropractors want us to visit the clinic on a regular basis. But the benefits that come about because of regular care may actually surprise you. Regular visits can bring health benefits such as pain reduction in the body as a whole, an improvement in mobility, a boost in the immune system, fewer headaches, better focus, and many others. How? Through a simple procedure that reduces and removes restrictions from the vertebrae of the spine. In order to gain these benefits and potentially feel better than ever, just make regular trips a habit in your life.
