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!
Do you know that you do not need a doctor's referral to see a chiropractor? If you are suffering from pain in your neck, shoulders, back, or joints, a chiropractor may be the best option for you. It may be difficult at first to find a chiropractor that works well with you, but here at Wellness Plus, we do our best to keep our clients happy and healthy!
So what are the things you need to know about chiropractic care if you have never received it before? Continue reading this blog to find out!
Find a Chiropractor that Cares
Finding a chiropractor that cares about you and your health is one of the most important things to take into consideration when looking. A proper chiropractor will do an initial assessment using x-rays to check the status of your spine. If you see one who did not take x-rays, this may not be the chiropractor you need.
Treatment Takes Time
Understand that your individual care plan will be different from others. Depending on the shape your spine is in, or how much pain you are suffering from, the length of your care plan will be specific to your needs.
Side Effects Can Happen
Just like with any other care, chiropractic may come with side effects. The side effects may include soreness, headache, or stiffness. However, these are temporary and usually only last a day.

At Wellness Plus, we are amazed at how wonderfully complicated the body is. Today we want to take a moment and explain, in a general sense, how your body works and how Chiropractic can help!
Your entire body is made up of multiple systems, and each system has a job they must maintain in order for you to be healthy. These systems include: Digestive, Reproductive, Circulatory, Endocrine, Integumentary, Lymphatic, Muscular, Nervous, Excretory, Respiratory, and Skeletal.
But how do all the systems in the body communicate with one another? Through nerves! Part of the nervous system, nerves are the most important communicators within your body. That is why it is so important to take care of your nerves and make sure they can send signals throughout your body appropriately.
How do we make sure they can communicate effectively without disruption? Through Chiropractic! Chiropractic focuses on the overall wellness of the body. By focusing on the spinal cord, the spine, and the correct alignment of each, chiropractic assists in the proper flow of communication from your brain through your nerves to systems throughout your body.
If you want more information or have specific questions feel free to call our office or come in! I wanna plus we want to work with you to understand how we can help your body be at optimal health.
