Adults & Teens

The fast-paced, demanding lifestyle of teens and adults can commonly lead to undesirable health conditions. As preventive care specialists, doctors of chiropractic suggest following certain tips to achieve a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

Stress Management

Ongoing stress can be detrimental to your health; leading to obesity, depression and heart disease.

Tips to help manage stress:

  • Relax and calm the body - taking slow and steady breaths
  • Get organized - eliminate over scheduling and conflicts
  • Get more sleep - increasing energy and concentration levels
  • Exercise - improve physical health and raise overall spirits
  • Find a hobby - enjoying activities boosts happiness

Headache Prevention

As society continues its love affair with high-tech gadgets, the extensive amount of “screen” time people spend on their computers and televisions can lead to physical aches - particularly back pain, neck pain and headaches. Recent studies have found the high amounts of time spent on screen-based activities can be a contributing factor in physical health problems.

Inactivity and sitting for lengthy periods of time puts nearly twice the amount of stress on the spine as standing. This can tighten and shorten muscles which may lead to injury.

As spinal specialists, doctors of chiropractic advise teens to take three to five minute breaks during extended periods of “screen” time. As always, proper posture will also help reduce the chance of injury - especially when sitting for long periods.
