Want to Shake Up Your Health Numbers? Your Chiropractor Can Help
By Sandy Schroeder
As you make your way through annual checkups and track your numbers for blood pressure, pulse, weight, and sugar levels, you may wish you had a way to reform and reboot everything.
As it turns out, there are ways to step from the comfort of your normal health routine, and find a better one. One of the ways is to enlist your local chiropractor, The Joint Chiropractic, as your wellness coach.
More and more people are discovering new ways to pursue wellness with their chiropractors. The chiropractic, whole-person approach may be just what you need to decide where you are, and how to move to where you want to be.
Focusing on the Spine
Starting with a realignment of the spine with a spinal adjustment, the chiropractor will be helping you reset the clock, correcting any misalignments that may impinge on your body’s central nervous system.
The spine really is command central, housing the delicate nervous system, that controls every cell, organ and function of your body. When that is reset, patients often experience neck, back and sciatica pain relief, along with new energy, improved digestion and better metabolism.
The chiropractor’s overall goal will be to help you relieve pain and maintain your normal schedule without pain medications or surgery.
Fixing Your Numbers
At that point, a plan to improve blood pressure, weight, pulse and sugar levels can begin to take shape. Your chiropractor can help you determine what you need to do first. Fewer work hours, more healthy foods, and a daily 30-minute exercise plan could go a long way toward fixing your numbers. Stress-deleting yoga, tai chi and meditation could help too.
You may want to include a 15-minute weekly chiropractic session to keep everything on target. As you see and feel improvements, you can begin to check your numbers again, too.
I have an assortment of friends and co-workers who have successfully used this chiropractic approach to maintain their weight, health and activity levels. Obviously, it likely contributes greatly to their long-term health expectations, too.
At the same time, as they stayed in touch with their chiropractor they found they could quickly handle new injuries, stay up-to-date on current health issues, and get rid of any small painful twinges before they became bigger.
If this sounds like a great way to improve your health numbers, stop by The Joint Chiropractic and find out how to get started. The Joint has a private affordable care program that eliminates the need for insurance, and a walk-in visit policy with convenient weekday, weekend and evening hours.
