Stay Strong and Balanced With Chiropractic Care

By Paul Rothbart

There are numerous elements to good health. Each of the body's systems should be functioning properly with the immune system effectively fighting illness. Strong bones, a healthy weight, and good cholesterol and blood pressure numbers are also important. Two other factors that may be overlooked are physical strength and balance. You don't have to be a world-class athlete, but these attributes can contribute to overall health.

Physical Strength

Strength varies from person to person and you don't have to be able to set bench press records. However, having strength sufficient for your lifestyle can boost health. Being able to lift and carry the things you need to in a typical day can help prevent injury, illness, and excess fatigue. This includes your own body weight. Most people at the very least have to carry groceries, laundry, and often purses or backpacks. These things can wear you down at the end of a long day if you lack the necessary level of strength.


Tied in with strength is balance. Activities like walking, climbing stairs, and carrying heavy loads can be precarious if your balance is even slightly off. Good balance keeps you stable and helps prevent falls that can cause serious injury. Balance is also important in climbing ladders or using a step stool. Some people do this in their work, but even household chores like changing light bulbs or hanging curtains require using one or the other. Even when doing chores that require standing in place for a period of time, such as washing dishes or folding laundry are aided by good balance.

How a Chiropractor Can Help

Your body weight and anything you may be carrying are, of course, supported by your skeleton. The main support structure of the skeleton is the spine. Its health is essential to both strength and balance. Subluxations or disc compressions cause pain as well as diminish overall strength. It's hard to stay balanced if there is an unnatural curve in the spine. Joints can also be subluxated and they also need to be healthy to optimize strength and balance.

Regular chiropractic care can be very helpful in this regard. Chiropractors are trained to find subluxations and other problems in the spine and joints. Once located, a chiropractor can adjust them, restoring them to full range of motion and support strength. You may feel stronger, better balanced, and able to handle the rigors of your daily routine.

Being strong and well-balanced are attributes that can contribute to good health. Consider a visit to The Joint Chiropractic. You don't need an appointment. You may find that seeing a chiropractor regularly helps you maintain your strength and balance, and that can lead to better health.
