How Often Do I Need Chiropractic Adjustments?

When it comes to chiropractic treatment, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Each patient is built differently and has a different routine that might put varying levels of pressure on the spine, the joints, and the rest of the body. People should not look at chiropractic treatment as a one-and-done solution to back pain, but, instead, look at chiropractic treatment as an ongoing tool to use when your body responds to the abuse you put it through. Chiropractic adjustments should be a part of your active recovery plan, especially if you engage in high-impact activities. Think about your body as a spring that is slowly but constantly being pressed downward. We have to decompress, at the very least every once in a while, even if you're feeling healthy. The truth is some patients may like to come in twice a week while others might come in once a month or once a quarter. It's really up to you and your chiropractor. Contact Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center today to schedule your consultation and start making chiropractic treatment a larger part of your wellness protocol.

Break These Bad Habits in 2020

Many of our new year goals have to do with following through with achievements, which inherently not only entails incorporating new healthy habits into your life, but also doing away with bad habits, which are said to die hard. Below, Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center goes over a few bad habits you should try to break this year, which will help you achieve your goals. First, breaking junk food habits and doing away with fast food from your diet will force you to consume healthier options. Start to look at what you eat as fuel. Second, start exercising at least 3 times per week, which will help promote healthy sleep, reduce overall anxiety, and fuel you throughout your day. Lastly, doing away with any self-destructive habits (like drinking alcohol or smoking, for instance) will drastically improve well being and help you feel better on a daily basis. Chiropractic treatment is a great way to give yourself a new self-care protocol.

Tips to Ring in the New Year the Healthy Way

New Year's Eve happens to be a time when many folks take it upon themselves to go out and have a few drinks (in many folks' cases, more than a few, let's be honest), stay out late, and wake up the next morning hardly getting their best start to this glorious new year ahead of us. Instead, it's a great idea to double down on your wellness plan. Go on a nature hike early in the day and plan for a freshly-cooked, healthy meal consisting of clean, whole foods. Later in the day maybe it would be a good idea to do that yoga practice that you've been putting on the back burner during the holiday season. Instead of going out and having to navigate the treacherous roads and the unrelenting crowds, stay at home with your loved ones. Maybe play a board game and treat yourself to a nice dessert. End the evening watching a good movie. That's pretty much the way to practice self-care. However, if you do end up heading out and putting your body through the New Year's Eve gauntlet, we have your back. Contact Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center to learn more about how our treatments help get the best out of you.
