General Wellness

Healthy living advice is a vital component of chiropractic care. Proper nutrition and fitness practices are critical to prevent, manage and overcome illness or injury. As trained wellness experts, doctors of chiropractic can provide needed guidance in these areas.

Help your immune system function optimally

With the changing of seasons heightening susceptibility to illness, Doctors of Chiropractic suggest following certain tips to overcome undesirable symptoms:

  • Supplement with vitamin D when necessary
  • Stay hydrated and practice healthy nutrition - eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and lean proteins, avoid saturated fats
  • Find time to exercise
  • Reduce your stress and practice deep breathing for relaxation
  • Be sure to get sufficient rest and sleep.

Preventing Obesity

According to the U.S. Surgeon General, nearly two out of every three Americans are either overweight or obese. Those extra pounds contribute to high blood pressure and heart disease and can also cause serious musculoskeletal problems.

Doctors of chiropractic warn those suffering from obesity that the excess weight affects the hips, knees, ankles and feet – often leading to lower back pain. Chiropractors offer safe, cost efficient treatment that can help relieve musculoskeletal pain stemming from obesity. Additionally, DCs provide guidance to jump-start healthy lifestyle habits, including weight loss when needed.
