Great health is completely attainable if you just follow a few easy recommendations.
Posture – Making an effort to sit up straight while working can make a big difference in your health – fewer headaches, fewer aches and pains, better posture as you age.
Stretching – Movement is vital. So many of us have sedentary jobs. Make sure you get up and stretch at least a few times daily. It will keep you limber and stave off stiffness.
Visit your chiropractor regularly – Chiropractic works best when used continually and preventatively not just when something goes out or you are ill.
Laugh regularly – having a sense of humor about life and making time to enjoy it are key to health. Laughter has the benefits of boosting your immune system, reducing anxiety and depression, helping maintain memory, improving sleep, and even can help protect against heart attack.
Limit time on your phone or tablet – Text Neck is a real thing. Looking down all of the time staring at your device can lead to neck problems, headaches, and even eyesight issues.
Exercise regularly – Stronger muscles support your spine better. The more in shape you are, the better an adjustment will hold. Exercise improves every aspect of your being from the physical to the emotional.
Stop self-adjusting your neck – a pop may give you temporary relief but in most cases is not helping the problem. Without proper contact and touch, you run the risk of damaging surrounding joints.
Consult your chiropractor BEFORE you have surgery, not after – Musculoskeletal surgery is permanent and not always a success. Chiropractic may be able to get you results beforehand making the surgery unnecessary. It is recommended to try chiropractic manipulation and adjacent therapies first. If at that point it is still advisable to undergo the surgery your doctor will let you know.
Purses and wallets – Wallets carried in the back pocket make you sit off kilter. Over time this will throw you out of alignment and cause lower back issues. Instead, carry a bag. They make men’s bags which do not look like purses and are designed more like small over the shoulder briefcases. As for women with large purses – one word – downsize! The less you carry in weight all of the time, the better it is for your health.
