Tips For Healthy Living!

There are four basic chiropractic wellness levels which help to explain how the majority of patients relate to chiropractor treatment. Each patient’s unique history, health, age, and inherited family tendencies will determine how they actually respond to the treatment and the optimum level of wellness that can be achieved through chiropractic care.

Level 1: Spinal Correction – This is the most acute level of need and may take a longer period of time to achieve your optimum level of health. Chronic or acute subluxations have damaged your vertebrae, joints, nerves, discs, muscles, meninges, tendons and ligaments. A series of chiropractic treatments will be prescribed in order for the body to learn to heal itself.

Level 2: Spinal Healing  At this level, your body will start to hold adjustments for longer periods. However, you will still be subluxation-prone, and different areas may need to be adjusted for each visit. Again, a prescribed course of treatments will be prescribed less frequently.

Today’s culture urges us to exercise in order to keep fit and to avoid weight gain. This is a fun way, either with a team or partner, to burn calories, tone muscles, and increase metabolism. Unfortunately, whether amateurs or professional, most people will experience some type of injury related to a sport or fitness regimen at some time in their life.

It would be wise to find a sports chiropractor early on to treat any type of injury, whether minor or major.  If the injury is not severe, its effect may not be felt until many years later. .

Are you tired of waking up tired, stiff and sore? If you have been looking for low back pain treatments to treat the cause of your pain, a doctor of chiropractic can offer advice on how to get a good night’s sleep and help relieve your pain. The position in which you sleep makes a big difference in how you feel each morning, refreshed and ready for the day, or stiff, sore, and in pain.

Find the position that puts your spine in a neutral, or straight, alignment.  This puts the least amount of stress on your back and neck and helps prevent stiffness and pain when you wake up. Adding a few strategically placed pillows (under your neck, between your legs, under your knees) will help keep your spine neutral.

There are many different reasons people seek chiropractic treatment. Some use a chiropractor's skills for spinal manipulation or aligning vertebrae for preventive care. Others want help managing serious pain conditions, such as scoliosis or whiplash. The goal of a chiropractor is to help you return to your optimum state of health, in other words, achieve health wholeness.

This may involve a regular preventive maintenance program that might range from a visit each week--with an adjustment done only if you need it--to a visit once every month. The number of treatments required depends on the nature of the condition, how long it has been present and the desired result of the treatment.
