How a Stronger Core Improves your Life

Compelling reasons to improve your core health

As an office of chiropractic, we focus on the spine as a foundation for wellness. An auxiliary to the spine's health is the core: the network of muscles that extend from the lower stomach to the upper back and are involved in every motion we perform on a daily basis. Developing the strength and stability of your core is a key way of supporting the spine. Here's are some reasons to improve core strength:

  • Protect the nervous system: the spine is a key conduit of the nervous system, connecting brain and body. A stronger core prevents the compression which weighs down on our spines and puts spinal nerves under pressure. 
  • Prevent injury: the core muscles facilitate and stabilize movement, ensuring that your spine does not suffer injury from excessive movement.
  • Increase the longevity of your spine: the muscles of the core are your spine's key ally in maintaining posture and strength. A lot of the weakness and degeneration inherent in our spines' age can be mitigated by a stronger core. 
  • Make yourself more attractive: and while this may appeal to our inner vanity, a stronger core helps us maintain a more upright posture, which not only projects confidence but contributes to better spinal health.

How we help improve core strength and spinal health at Family Chiropractic & Natural Healing Center

At our office in Milpitas, we believe that knowledge is power! The first step toward a stronger core and a more stable spine is awareness! We can help you determine when the way you use your core is letting you down. From posture to exercise and diet, we are committed to helping you improve your core health across the board. Chiropractic modalities maintain spinal alignment, increase circulation and improve nerve function throughout the core. From here, we focus on elongating the deep-lying muscles of the core and strengthening the phasic muscles which lend strength and support to the lower back. If you are interested in improving your core health to benefit the spine, give our office in Milpitas a call to schedule an appointment today. 

Preventive Healthcare: A Healthy Spine for a Longer Life

Your spine is the foundation of wellness

Keeping it healthy should be an essential health objective in our society. There is an accepted, albeit twisted, narrative that being old equates to having back pain, and little can be done about it. We're here to tell you that this is not the case. Chiropractic is part of a preventive healthcare mindset that treats your spine as the basis for your physical wellbeing. Rather than the traditional reactive form of healthcare that predominates in Western medicine- the kind that treats symptoms after the fact- we focus on maintaining a high level of health for the spine to prevent problems from happening in the first place. 

Chiropractic is conservative care

And conservative care is especially effective when you consider it from a preventive angle. Chiropractic's primary health objectives in a preventive sense are: maintaining alignment of the spine, contributing to the health and pliability of the muscles and soft tissues that support it, and improving core stability. The overall outcome of these three factors is:

  • More fluid nervous system function
  • Better range of motion 
  • Less back pain 
  • Ability to maintain better posture

And once injury does strike, chiropractic seeks and addresses the root cause rather than treating symptoms. Our bodies are amazingly adept at healing themselves, but sometimes they need a helping hand. Chiropractic is a conservative form of rehabilitation that seeks to augment the body's natural healing abilities. 

Prevention is healthcare the right way around

At our office in Milpitas, we are concerned with helping you use spinal health to influence overall wellbeing. We would love to help you unlock the potential of your musculoskeletal being- if you are interested in improving spinal health to live a longer, less painful life, give our office in Milpitas a call to schedule an appointment today.  

Getting to Know Your (Spinal) Curves

Spinal curvature

Spinal curvature is essential for stability and mobility

There are four essential curves in your spine: the cervical, thoracic, lumbar and sacral, and each has a vital role to play in spinal health and thus, in your overall well-being. However, the four of them combine to provide your entire body with stability and resilience to injury and pain, as well as providing for the initiation and stabilization of all the movements we perform throughout the day.

Getting older means taking a more proactive approach to spinal care

Whether you like it or not, once we approach the quarter-life mark, (20-25 years), our spines need help. Gone are the days of resilience where our backs could withstand seemingly any twist, turn, and dip. The reality is that spines begin to stiffen as the constant downward compression of gravity compounds and begins to wreak havoc. It is therefore our responsibility to protect the longevity of our spines by taking decisive action now! Fortunately, your spinal care specialists at Family Chiropractic & Natural Healing Center are well equipped to help you do just that.

Why Circulation Counts for Vitality

circulation

Why circulation is so important

When your blood is flowing optimally, all the cells in your body are getting the oxygen and nutrients (assuming you have been consuming them!) they need, while they are also able to get rid of the cell waste and toxins that cause cellular dysfunction. Your vital organs, including the brain, are literally fed by your blood. We can put no price on the importance of these inputs for the function of our bodies, allowing our cells to repair and regrow the way they need to keep us healthy and functioning optimally.
