Need a Holiday Boost? Chiropractic Can Help
By Sandy Schroeder
If you are doing your best to keep up with the holiday rush, you may welcome a quick boost from your local chiropractor.
When your back aches, and your head hurts, stop by The Joint Chiropractic for some much needed answers. The Joint Chiropractic doctors of chiropractic are well equipped to help.
Talk with your chiropractor about your back pain, headaches or other painful joints and review your daily schedule and health history. Your chiropractor will focus on spinal health to help you achieve the best overall health.
A gentle targeted spinal adjustment may ease back pain and make the headaches go away. At the same time, you may sleep better, feel less stress and enjoy more energy.
Weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments can keep you moving throughout the holidays. Pace yourself and avoid other injuries with key safety tips.
Lighten that tote - Take a minute to lighten the load in all of your totes. Only carry what you really need. Switch the weight from one shoulder to the other, or distribute everything into two bags.
Watch lifting - Squat and lift with your legs when you are picking up children, packages and groceries. Avoid twisting while lifting. When an item is too heavy, get someone to help.
Reach and bend carefully - When reaching for things above shoulder level, stand on a stool. Never strain to reach objects. Do not bend from the waist to pick up items from the floor. Kneel as close as possible to the item and power the lift with your legs.
Pause here and there - Take short timeouts every day to step away and just breathe. Encourage your kids to get outside and take breaks too. Hike, bike or enjoy your favorite sports on the weekend.
Eat healthy - Keep lots of fruits, nuts and veggies on hand, and use homemade healthy sit down dinners to keep everyone connected.
Rest well - Help your family keep regular bedtimes to get the rest you all need. Use a quiet time before bedtime to help everyone wind down. When everyone gets 7 to 9 hours of rest, everything else goes better too.
Walk, run or bike - Energize with quick exercise breaks whenever you can. Get the kids out there too. Run to the park or walk the dog.
Keep your holidays moving. Stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you. Affordable personal healthcare plans eliminate the hassle of insurance. Weekend and evening hours simplify visits. Walk-in visits are welcome.
