Enjoy the Nice Weather Outdoors

After a long Winter we are finally getting a chance to get rid of our cabin fever! Finding an activity you enjoy outdoors can boost your energy and improve your quality of life. Our community will be actively gardening, running, doing yard work, walking, and a variety of outdoor sports. While activity is excellent for your overall health, and highly recommended by our Doctors, sometimes excess stress and overuse can cause a variety of aches and pains that we can help you with. One recommendation is to take it slow at first. As an example, if you are a runner and have been inactive during the winter, start off with a smaller distance the first few times you go out. Our tendency is to get excited and over do activities the first time we are able to. If you are experiencing any muscle aches or joint pains, let us help you get back to the things you love to do with less discomfort.

Tips for Dealing with Allergies

Allergy season is upon us and there are several natural ways to help reduce your symptoms. Chiropractic adjustments can help stimulate your immune system and help with sinus drainage. Other things to try include:

  • Echinacea or stinging nettle tea
  • Anti-inflammatory diet (eat more fruits and veggies and less processed foods) and supplement with fish oil
  • Humming can help your nasal cilia move faster and break up thick mucus

Chiropractic is Beneficial for All Ages

Did you know that chiropractic is not just for people in their middle to late ages? All age groups can benefit from safe, effective chiropractic care. Infants and toddlers who have difficulty sleeping or have frequent ear infections often respond well to treatment. Adjustments in this age group are very gentle, and are done with sustained contact on a restricted area or with Activator. Young kids to teens who are actively growing should have their spine monitored for scoliosis. In general, this age group often responds well to chiropractic treatment, especially those active in sports. Adjustments can help them perform better and with less discomfort. In today’s electronic age, upper back and neck pain is becoming more and more of a problem due to poor posture. If you see yourself or your child with rounded shoulders and a neck protruding forward, chiropractic can help redevelop your natural posture to help reduce neck and upper back pain. Older adults often have aches and pains related to their age from spinal compression and sometimes arthritic changes. If you or your family members could benefit from chiropractic care, we would be happy to see you in our clinic!
