Chiropractic care you can count on
Chiropractic care is all about helping you and your family to live your best life. We are already a month into the spring season and the occasional hot, sunny day has us thinking about full-blown summer. In fact, the next three months will be characterized by animated school kids who can’t wait for the school year to be over, beachside fashionistas dieting and working out, and families planning vacations to sun-filled destinations. Perhaps you want to address some back pain after your first weekends of golf? Has gardening or yard work made you realize that staying in shape is easier than getting in shape? The chiropractic clinic is the place to get you and your family eating right and doing all the right things to get or keep you healthy. Whatever your plans are for the summer, chiropractic care can help make sure you are ready. Consider the flowing tips to get you ready for summer fun:
- Get into water
Get into water… both literally and figuratively. Chiropractors universally agree that swimming is a great exercise option for patients with joint pain. Swimming allows you to get the heart rate up and strengthen muscles while relieving your joints from pressure or impact. It’s also important to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Proper hydration enhances muscle function, aids the body in temperature regulation, improves skin health, and helps your body to excrete harmful toxins.
- Get outside
Warmer and longer days will allow you to get regular exercise. Exercise improves the function of your immune system, elevates your mood, and also helps with weight control. Can also swim, hike, or just take relaxing walks. Being outdoors is a fun way to get some exercise.
- Get relaxing therapy
Even fun activities like golfing or gardening can leave you with sore muscles. Whether your day was stressful or fun, make time to completely relax. Take a soothing bath, read a book, or consider a weekly therapeutic massage. Most chiropractic clinics have highly qualified massage therapists. Massage is a therapy that is often combined with chiropractic care. Massage has been proven to help the body enter a “restandrecovery” mode. In addition, the restful effect of massage lingers long the session is over. Even a single massage session significantly lowers the heart rate, cortisol, and insulin levels; which works to help reduce daily stress.
If you are suffering from chronic pain or you are simply looking for natural, non-invasive treatment; chiropractic clinics also offer supplemental therapies such as the application of heat or cold, electrical stimulation, diet, counseling, or rehabilitative exercise.
