Do a Chiropractic Checkup
When you come in for a checkup, your chiropractor will want to know where it hurts, what your schedule is, and what your health history is.
Focusing on spinal health, a gentle targeted spinal adjustment may provide far-reaching pain relief and a general sense of wellness. You may sleep better, feel more energetic, and be more aware.
You may decide weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments will work to keep you pain-free and active. At the same time you may want to work on stress, weight, posture, family fitness or schedules.
Just need to lose 10 pounds - Eating healthier with less takeout and more fruits and veggies is a good start. From there, avoid eating in front of the TV or the computer, and eat mindfully to taste every bite. Add lots of fiber-filled foods such as black beans, peas and Brussels sprouts to keep you satisfied and keep working to gradually lose the weight and keep it off.
Feeling really stressed - Too many activities, extra projects, more deadlines, and lot of family events can make fall a trying time. Post a bulletin board with everybody’s schedule and try for sit-down dinners to see how everybody is doing. The more connected you are the less stressed you may feel.
Need some help with posture - Have someone take a picture of you working. If your head juts forward and your shoulder slump, you need to sit up straight and do some posture exercises to get your body back in line. Make sure you have a good chair that gives shoulder and back support and keep your feet flat on the floor.
Need to rethink fitness - If the whole family seems to be lagging when it comes to workouts, it may be time to look at daily schedules to find time to walk or bike more. Fifteen minutes before breakfast or after dinner could be a good start. Adding a new sport like soccer with practices in the backyard might work too.
