Common Health Issues That Can Be Treated With Chiropractics & Exercise
As if having a regular fitness and chiropractic routine didn’t have any more benefits, it turns out that they can also specifically aid in combating certain major or minor wellness issues you may be experiencing. Start making time to hit the gym and see your chiropractor, and you’ll notice an improvement in both your overall well-being as well as any underlying conditions you may currently be suffering from.
Here are some very common health problems that many people find relief from simply by exercising and seeing a chiropractor, according to an article by Rodale News.
While we all suffer from occasional anxiety due to busy lives and stressful jobs, chronic anxiety disorders are an entirely different, and sometimes debilitating,ballgame. Whether it stems from depression or is its own issue, exercise can help keep anxiety at manageable levels.
A good workout will release endorphins throughout the body, which will provide a much-needed boost in your mood. Regular exercise will work well to achieve results, but those who suffer from prolonged anxiety might want to try incorporating meditation and yoga into their daily fitness routines. These exercises focus on controlled breathing, which is important for taming sudden rushes of anxiety. Chiropractic has also been proven to reduce stress by decreasing the stress hormone cortisol in the body.
Maybe you’re having a hard time falling asleep. Maybe you find yourself tossing and turning, waking up several times a night. Either way, you’ll feel the effects of sleep loss throughout the next day. Exercise can help you experience deeper, more restful sleep cycles, which will lead to increased energy and productivity throughout the day. Since insufficient sleep can also cause weight gain, heart disease, and increased anxiety, it would be in your best interest to implement a 30-minute workout routine at least 3 times a week to improve the quality of your sleep.
If you’re experiencing issues related to your memory or cognition skills, you might want to try mixing up your fitness routine. Learning a new skill and/or routine, rather than a repetitive workout, is more effective for combating issues with your memory and for preventing Alzheimer’s. Take classes in tai-chi or salsa dancing. Hike a nature trail you haven’t explored before, or ride a new bicycle path every few days. Chiropractic can also aid in improving your mental clarity by aligning the body into its optimal state.
Women going through PMS symptoms face a large amount of issues, including lack of energy, anxiety, irritability, and even signs of depression. Regular exercise and continuous chiropractic treatments throughout the month will produce feel-good endorphins and serotonin, which will elevate your mood and energy levels. Yoga and tai-chi have been shown to be especially effective at reducing cramping and mood swings.
