Self-Care Tips for Valentine's Day

This Valentine's Day it's important to take a small time out to make sure that you're good with yourself! Even if you have a special someone to make plans for this Valentine's Day, Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center would like to take a moment to remind our patients and readership to give themselves a little TLC this Valentine's Day.

Below, we go over a few ways that you can practice some quick and easy self-care -- even if your V-day is packed with activities.

One way to give your body and mind the routine maintenance it needs is to build your yoga practice. Take a class in the morning on Valentine's Day for a yummy stretch that will have you feeling amazing throughout the day. You can even schedule a massage for you and your loved one -- taking care of two birds with one stone.

Eating healthy is another great way to practice self-care, since eating bad foods, when you think about it and put it simply, is probably something along the lines of self-destructive behavior.

Maybe after the meal, take a nice nature hike, whether you fly solo or go with that special someone. These are all simple and easy measures you can take that your body and mind will thank you for. Contact Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center to learn about how our treatments are the perfect self-care tool for Valentine's Day.

More on Myofascial Release Therapy

If you haven't heard of it, Myofascial Release Therapy (also called MFR) is a treatment that relieves you of muscular tightness and muscular strain that occurs in the face. Patients might seek MFR after losing their flexibility if they're experiencing pain, if they've experienced an injury, or if they have impaired functionality.

Pain in the face can be generated from the skeletal muscles or even connective tissues which can be bound down by fascia tightness. Contractions of muscles can occur at certain trigger points in which cases blood flow can become inhibited. 

During your initial consultation, we'll locate the areas that have become tense or restricted. We give you hands-on treatment in our relaxing and comfortable environment in a private therapy room.

We'll custom-tailor a treatment protocol that works for your situation and your budget. Myofascial Release Therapy is designed to help patients deal with pain in an all-natural way. Our treatments go far beyond the back and spine. Contact Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center today to schedule your consultation if you believe you could benefit from our many treatments and services.

Top 3 Reasons to Utilize Chiropractic Treatment

Many people out there are on the fence about whether or not to pursue chiropractic treatment for pain and injury relief and routine maintenance for the body. People might have the wrong sort of expectations when thinking of chiropractic treatment as a one-time thing designed to rid you of all your health problems. Such is not the case and not the way to look at chiropractic treatment.

Below are a few practical reasons why chiropractic treatment is a viable option for those looking to deal with everyday pain and unlock their body's full potential.

1.) Drug-Free Pain Relief

Whether you have headaches, neck pain, back spasms, or joint inflammation, chiropractic treatments can help ease you pain the all-natural drug-free way by inspiring your body's natural healing processes.

2.) Rid Yourself of Anxiety and Stress

Chiropractic treatments have been shown to significantly reduce stress and overall anxiety, not to mention promote a better night of sleep! Insomnia patients even seek out chiropractic treatment when other remedies don't seem to work.

3.) Feel More Comfortable in Your Own Skin

Chiropractic treatment will have you feeling amazing inside and out and from head to toe. When your body and brain are firing on all cylinders, it's amazing what you can accomplish in a day. Contact Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center today to learn more about how our treatments can drastically improve your lifestyle.

3 Big Contributors to Stress and Anxiety

Stress and anxiety show up in our lives when we're up and when we're down. Life is always happening, despite our work schedules and despite our needs, and it seems like our daily behaviors and habits play a huge role in how we feel day-to-day.

Below, Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center goes over a few major contributors to stress and anxiety. Limiting these habits, actions, and behaviors will help you feel more at peace and emotionally balanced on a daily basis.

Lack of Sleep

Make sure to get 7-9 hours of sleep on a daily basis. If you're having trouble sleeping, work on your exercising, limit caffeine intake, and practice meditation and yoga towards the end of each day, which will all help promote a better night of sleep.

Not Taking Care of Responsibility

Many of us shirk our responsibilities in lieu of doing more comfortable things, like binge-watching Netflix. Doing nothing and letting your responsibilities stack-up on you is a surefire way to get majorly stressed. Think of each day as an opportunity to get something like 5 tasks completed. Go hour for hour, if you have to, but try to make sure that each day is spent taking care of business. You'll sleep better at night and feel far less anxious about things.

Lack of Exercise

If we don't burn excess energy on exercise it can show up as anxiety or stress when we lay our heads down to sleep at night. Exercise to exertion 3-4 times per week in order to reduce stress and improve mood/outlook.

Chiropractic treatments are a great way to reduce anxiety, improve mood, and even help you achieve a better night of sleep. Contact Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center today to schedule your consultation in order to learn more.

Joint Pain Relief Tips

Joint pain is something that can come about from an acute injury or something that can come about from the repetition of your daily grinds.

Below, Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center goes over a few ways to get rid of joint pain, or at the very least help your joints manage everyday pain more effectively and without drug intervention.

Do Yoga

Yoga is an amazing tool for decompressing the body and increasing your flexibility and range of motion. Making yoga a part of your daily routine will have your body (and your joints for that matter) feeling up for the task of your daily duties.

Do Low-Impact Exercises

Swimming, rock climbing, paddleboarding, and other low impact workouts are all great for engaging your core muscle groups while putting the least amount of pressure on your joints.
