When you walk, more than 200 individual muscles spring into action which includes all of the muscles in your spine and pelvic area. There’s no denying that walking is good for you and very beneficial to overall health. It is also very effective for spinal health. In most cases, walking is an excellent complement to chiropractic care. Here are 5 good reasons for chiropractic patients to get moving.
There is no denying that a healthy diet is integral to overall wellness and staying hydrated is absolutely vital. Every organ, every cell in your body contains water. In fact, when you don’t drink enough water and keep your body properly hydrated, it does not function as it should.
The health of your spine and back depends heavily on whether you are properly hydrated. In fact, if you don’t drink enough water – plain, pure water – it could affect your back, causing pain and limiting mobility.
The statistics are sobering. The typical American diet far exceeds the daily recommended intake levels in calories from sugars and solid fats, sodium, refined grains, and saturated fat. It is also lacking in the recommended amounts of fruits, vegetables, dairy, whole grains, and oils. The result is obesity and experts project that by 2030, in the United States alone, half of all adults will be obese.
That’s when people start dieting – and that is what gets them into trouble.
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a condition that is not as straightforward as other illnesses. The symptoms can often mimic other conditions, including some that are quite serious, so they must all be ruled out before a diagnosis of CFS can be determined.
This is usually not a quick process so the patient is left dealing with troubling and often debilitating symptoms and no real answers – sometimes for months or even years. By the time a patient receives a diagnosis of CFS they are usually exhausted both physically and emotionally.
Tendonitis is a condition that occurs when a tendon that connects bone to muscle is injured, overused, or used improperly. The result is inflammation, pain and sometimes swelling. In the case of an injury where the tendon is stressed to otherwise injured, soft tissue around the area may also become involved. Each year more than 4 million people in the U.S. seek medical treatment for symptoms of tendonitis.
Chiropractic care is extremely beneficial for many different conditions; some obvious while others are more obscure. Structural issues that affect the knees are often very responsive to chiropractic treatment. In the case of chondromalacia patellae and other knee problems, it has proven to reduce pain and help improve the condition considerably, providing the patient with increased mobility and flexibility.
One side of the human body doesn’t necessarily match the other perfectly. In fact, there is almost always a tiny disparity of size and length in a person’s hands, feet, arms, and legs.
Think about it, a ring may fit on one hand but be tight on the other, a shoe may feel loose on one foot but be comfortably worn on the other. Most of the time these slight discrepancies in size are normal and have no bearing on an individual’s well-being.
We saw about 20 patients today in the new office. Was nice to have a test run. We are open tomorrow and will arrive at 11am. Our phones are working and our voicemail is working. Thanks you for your understanding during our move and the major snowstorm.
Remember we are at our NEW location at 10611 Quaker Ave. That is 1/2 mile south of the Market Street on 98th and Quaker.
I just drove on the roads a little. They’re terrible. The plan is to have Dr Chambless and myself at the office at 12 noon. We will be there until about 4pm. I can’t ask my staff to get out on those streets. Remember we are at new location 10611 Quaker Ave. I’m trying to get a crew to clear the snow drifts so we can get to the office. We’ll report to all the news channels tomorrow. Please be safe.
The blizzard weather has created very icy roads. We’ve moved over to the new office which is very close to Dr. Helton’s home. He will be there tomorrow morning to see urgent need patients but I encourage people to stay off the road. Stay tuned to our Facebook page as well as our website for closure information. Please be safe.
