‘Tis the Season

Coming into winter is sometimes bittersweet. The natural tangle of leafless tree branches can feel lonely at times. Our bodies tend to stiffen more under lower temperature, and we need to stretch deeper before we exercise to prevent weather-related injuries. Even our immune systems are more likely to become compromised at this time of year and we seem to get sick more often.

There’s many enjoyments to the holiday season along with family responsibilities, but prioritizing your overall health should remain on your to-do list year round.

Your greatest defense against disease is actually your own immune system. A strong, healthy defense system will fight off infection and/or prevent it from spreading.

In this article, we will explore the relationship between chiropractic treatment and an improved immune system, which is essential for staying healthy during the winter.

Giving someone a little peace, relaxation, rejuvenation, and helping them take steps on their wellness journey sounds better than giving them another tie they won’t wear or a fruitcake they won’t eat! Here are a few reasons that chiropractic care makes the ideal gift:

Poor posture can lead to muscle strains, pulls and can even strain ligaments. It can make your heart work harder than it should and injure your back. It can influence everything else you do, from walking to lifting heavy objects. Here's how to get good posture at work:

Are you interested in improving your posture? Taking the time and putting in a bit of effort can help you yield many great results! “Good” posture is when the muscles surrounding the spine are balanced and able to support the body equally. Let’s look at five benefits of improving your posture.

There is an opioid crisis in the United States. Awareness of the issue rising, but not quickly enough to save the lives of the approximately 130 people who die each day due to opioid abuse. Chronic pain contributes to depression and desperation for relief, often fueling addiction to prescription pain medication. Unfortunately, many people do not realize the potential relief available through chiropractic care, acupuncture, and physical therapy.
