When Should I See a Chiropractor?

By |2024-06-17T23:18:28-04:00October 28th, 2022|Chiropractor|0 Comments

A chiropractor is a healthcare professional focusing on the body's self-healing ability. Chiropractors mainly work with patients' neuromusculoskeletal systems - bones, nerves, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Additionally, a chiropractor can help patients manage pain through spinal adjustments. They also help patients achieve and maintain alignment. Many chiropractors take a holistic approach to health and wellness and use chiropractic treatment as an integral treatment along with nutrition and exercise. A common misunderstanding is that you only need to see a chiropractor after an injury or with intolerable pain symptoms. However, seeing a chiropractor can be a powerful preventative tool before any [...]

While we used to think that marathoners and high-performance runners would see the most improvements, that's not necessarily true.

Research also shows that brisk walking has positive implications for health, too. The bottom line is, if you engage [...]

Choosing snacks wisely is important and a part of everyone’s day. But unfortunately, many foods that are seemingly “healthy” in reality, are not. For example, a bran muffin or a cereal bar may advertise itself as a healthy snack, but they are actually packed with sugar and unhealthy fats. Even “fat-free” foods can contain heaps of added sugar and salt. If you aren’t consciously making an effort to choose healthy snacks, you might mindlessly reach for convenient junk foods like chips or candy. Smart snacking can help stabilize your blood sugar and keep you feeling full and satisfied. Think of [...]

Are your feet holding you back?

What are your feet saying?! Are your feet holding you back?! We are only as strong as our foundation.

Our feet have two jobs: 1. To be mobile so that they may adapt to the ground and absorb impact. 2. Be strong and stable to propel us on our way. If our feet are able to accomplish both of these tasks [...]
