Chiropractic services are essential and beneficial for everyone. We all need it once in a while. Chiropractors know that adjustments are good for your general health, and they tend to give you advice such as strengthening your back muscles or buy a pillow for your neck.
The chiropractor wants you to be healthy as a whole, but what does living a healthy lifestyle even mean? People ask questions like how do we begin the journey toward a more balanced, healthier condition?
Here are a few chiropractic tips on health and wellness to improve your overall life:
1- Focus on Eating Well:
Filling your body with the proper nutrients is absolutely crucial for long-term health. If you’re constantly filling your body with junk, eventually you’ll feel a little like junk. Eating lean meats, fruits, and veggies gives your body a fighting chance at staying well. You’ll get the vitamins and minerals that you need, you’ll be able to control your weight, and your rate of illness will lower like never before. All of this helps serve the chiropractor’s main purpose which is to help you stay as healthy and whole as possible.
2- Get the Exercise Going:
Regular stretching and exercising is a great way to loosen up your body, making it more malleable to your good habits. You’re relieving stress centers that exist in your body, providing your posture with the relief that it needs to make you look and feel great. By exercising, you’re protecting your body from the stress that can cause chiropractic problems. It’s not only good for your chiropractic health, though. Exercise is going to improve your overall health, improving every part of your life, including both your body and your mind.
3- Resting or Sleeping:
Straining your neck or back while you’re sleeping is a very common occurrence. We often fall asleep in strange positions where we are not supported properly or our necks are at an odd angle. Avoid sleeping on your stomach as that places unnecessary stress on your neck and back. If you sleep on your back, have good pillow support under your neck, and place a pillow behind the back of your knees to take the pressure on the low back. If you sleep on your side, again ensure good pillow support under your neck, and put a pillow between your knees to keep your hips level. Make sure that if you are going to nap or watch TV in bed, your neck and back are properly supported. Remember, rest is important for your body to recover properly and re-energize itself for the following day. Make sure you are setting aside a good 8 hours of sleep each night. If you cannot get it all at once, naps are also okay
4- Wallet in the Front Pocket:
There are many seemingly harmless things that you can do to practically ruin your chiropractic health, but among them, having a wallet in your back pocket is probably the worst. Having something constantly digging into your posterior is not only uncomfortable, but it also throws off the entire alignment of your spine, making it almost impossible for you to retain the good chiropractic health habits that you want to have. Make sure that you don’t keep anything in that back pocket, it’s more for decoration on your pants anyway. You can be sure that your lower back is going to thank you for it.
5- Practice Posture:
Posture is a developmental process, meaning that the more that you stay in a certain position, the more that you’re going to remain in that position. That means that good posture is something that you have to constantly practice. Posture largely affects the amount of strain that you’re putting on various parts of your body, so making sure that you’re sitting up straight while you’re at your desk can be the difference between a healthy back and unpleasant bi-weekly visits to the chiropractor.
6- Overall Physical Activity:
regular physical activity is extremely important, whether it is going to the gym, playing a sport, taking martial arts, or just going for a walk. Try to get some physical activity daily for 30 minutes or longer. It does not have to be all at once (for example taking a 10-minute walk 3 times per day), but it must be purposeful physical activity. Include stretching before and after the activity to stay loose. If you know that you are going to be working or playing for a while, make sure that you are adequately warmed up. It’s easy to pull or aggravate something if you’re not warmed up properly, even if it’s something light like gardening or just pushing your child on a bike.
