3 Hidden Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center specializes in chiropractic care treatments that help our patients achieve a better quality of life -- in more ways than one! Below we go over a few ways that chiropractic adjustments that you might not know about.

Chiropractic Helps Your Digestive System

Your GI tract can get out of whack just like your spine, which creates all sorts of problems with the rest of your body and your brain. Studies are consistently showing that your gut health is directly related to your state of mind, too. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to benefit the GI system, improving the digestive tract.

Chiropractic Boost Neurofunctionality

Chiropractic adjustments also benefit your mind/body connection. When our neck and spine get tweaked from everyday activity this can seriously affect the way our brain is able to communicate with the rest of the body, creating a "Dim Bulb" effect. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to boost mental clarity.

Chiropractic Reduces Stress and Improves Your Mood

Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to improve our patients state of mind, reduce anxiety and stress, and help patients achieve more restful sleep.

A Primer on Spinal & Postural Screenings

When you visit Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center for a spinal & postural screening, it's a very important step in the establishment of your new wellness protocol. This serves as an initial discovery phase which provides you and your doctor with facts regarding issues you might be having in a neuromusculoskeletal sense.

After a quick spinal & postural screening, we can identify problems that might have gone previously unnoticed. Early identification with treatment will help you prevent experiencing chronic problems.

Here's Our Screening Process:

We make sure that your pelvis, rib cage, and head are properly aligned and balanced upon each other. When the body is out of balance and out of alignment, this means good posture likely isn't being practiced and the spine has deviated from healthy placement and position. 

Signs of Poor Alignment:

– Injury
– Disc Pain
– Scoliosis
– Neck and Back Pain
– Arm and Leg pain
– Pain in Your Buttocks
– Numbness or Tingling Sensation in the Arms, Legs, Hands, or Feet

Tips for Daily Stress Reduction

Stress does far more than just affect our minds and our moods. Stress has a direct effect on the body that can result in muscle tension, headaches, illness, and more. That's why it's more important in today's hectic world to be able to manage stress effectively. Below are a few ways to reduce your overall stress on a daily basis.

Stay Active

Turns out we're genetically wired from our hunter-gatherer ancestors, who spent each day walking no less than 15,000 steps. If you're not engaging in strenuous exercise multiple times a week, your body and brain are still going to have excess energy to spend, which will likely be spent stressing, worrying, and feeling anxious. Exercising at least 3 times a week -- incorporating strength and cardio training -- will help you achieve a new level of restful sleep.

Quiet Your Mind

Meditation and practicing deep breathing and mindfulness exercises will help you reduce your stress and improve and build your inner calmness. Meditation is difficult to master, but always worth the effort, paying off in dividends when it comes to your mental health.

Eat Well

Eating well will have you feeling better on a daily basis. It's true that we are what we eat. Limiting your caffeine intake will also help you reduce stress and anxiety, helping you also achieve more restful sleep.

Chiropractic adjustments are another great way to improve your quality of life. Patients often report back to us with less overall stress, improved sleep, and improved mental and physical functionality. Contact Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center today to schedule your consultation.

4 Tips for a Fun and Healthy Summer

Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center helps people optimize their lives through innovative chiropractic care treatments, but we also provide education to our patients and readership looking to continue their adventures in living a healthy lifestyle.

Below are a few ways to keep your wellness practice going in the summer months, which might be months where some of us slack in multple departments when it comes to our health.

1.) Stay Active

Get into hiking, running, swimming, climbing, paddleboarding -- anything that will get you active, and, preferably outdoors. You'll experience new energy and drive, not to mention innumerable health benefits.

2.) Engage in Active Recovery

On your off days try to make sure you're not sitting there doing nothing. Avoid Netflix binges and instead go for a hike or take that weekend yoga class. It's a great way to take care of your mind and body while giving it the space and rest it needs.

3.) Stay Hydrated

Staying hydrated is pivotal to your health. When dehydrated, you'll experience fatigue, loss of focus, and your work and play will certainly be affected. Instead, make sure to drink half your body weight in ounces of water per day.

4.) Protect Yourself from UV Rays

If you're going to be outside, make sure to bring the sunblock. Cover your skin where you can and retreat to the shade if you're too exposed. Your skin will thank you!

Chirorpactic care treatments are another fantastic way to stay on top of your health this summer. Contact Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center today to schedule your consultation today.
