The end of the year is already here, but that doesn't mean you need to be lax about your health and wellness. Take this time to celebrate your health just as much as you would celebrate any of your favorite holidays!
Happy December! We hope you had a wonderful fall and have settled into a wonderful holiday season. There is so much to look forward to this time of year. But with the extra addition of stress during the holiday, it's so easy to get sick or throw your body out of whack to the point where you're in constant pain. Those few tweaks and points of pain can put a damper on all of your holiday plans. It's so easy for that holiday stress to turn into physical pain. Stress, worry, being very busy, poor diet, and not enough rest can place a lot of instant pain and damage on your back and well being during the holidays. While you are picking out the next holiday movie, making your holiday plans, or starting to travel home for the holidays, keep these tips in mind.
Never let your health and wellness be the last thing you pay attention to this holiday season. Spread your holiday cheer down to your toes, and your body will thank you for it!
Your health and wellness need to be celebrated and cared for as much as any holiday tradition. It is worth taking the time to invest in, care for, and protect. You only get one body, so we encourage you to take these tips to heart. We are so excited to see you in the new year, and can't wait to start a positive and healthy trip around the sun with you. From all of us at Wellness Plus, stay happy and well this holiday season!
How Stretching Benefits your Chiropractic Care
The spine is held in place by the surrounding muscles and ligaments. It is important, as we age, to keep muscles as flexible as possible since they have a tendency to tighten over the years.
The tightening of muscles cause the body to no longer maintain symmetry. This can be seen in the raise of one side of the body. When stretching is used alongside chiropractic, the muscles within the body, specifically surrounding the spine, relax and begin to align with the adjustments made by the chiropractor.
Stretching alongside chiropractic care can also improve the range of motion within the body as well as flexibility. When you are more flexible, you are less likely to be injured as long as you continue to listen to your body and understand your limits.
Muscles are where we hold our stress, so if you are adding stretching into your routine, you are combatting your stress effectively!
We focus on your overall wellness here at Wellness Plus. Our objective is to help you live a healthy life alongside your chiropractic appointments. If you are looking for a reliable chiropractor, schedule your appointment today!
