Tips to Reduce Stress During the Holidays

The holiday season represents a time where families come together to share gifts and appreciation for one another. Over the years, somehow the holiday season became more about trying to create that perfect picturesque experience that somehow never materializes, because, when it comes down to it, nothing is perfect.

All this gift-giving and family gathering that goes on during the holidays creates tense situations for many of us, which is why Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center would like to go over a few tips to reduce your holiday stress.

1.) Keep it Simple

Instead of having everyone you've ever met over for some sort of holiday gathering, just invite a few quality people that you know will help craft an amazing experience. Create a simple spread and keep the gifts you get for others from getting too elaborate and expensive. This will create a less stressful situation for you in the end.

2.) Remember to Exercise

Get your runs in and get your time at the gym in, because the holiday season is going to throw some amount of stressful craziness your way. You'll find that you're far more mentally fit to handle adverse situations after a great workout, which improves mood and helps reduce anxiety.

3.) See Your Local Chiropractor

Seeing your local chiropractor will help boost your mood, reduce stress and anxiety, not to mention help you achieve more restful sleep. Contact Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center today to learn more about who we are and what we can do for your health and wellness. Happy holidays!

Simple Yet Impactful Diet Hacks

When it comes to nutrition, sometimes it's the simplest solutions that end up getting us the best results. Instead of committing to one strenuous diet, for some of us the best possible results come from simply eating healthier and being more conscious of what we're putting into our bodies.

Below, Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center goes over a few simple changes you can make that will end up making a huge difference on your overall health.

Restrict Eating Times

Start waiting longer to eat your first meal and make sure you get in your final meal of the day 2 hours before you go to bed. For instance, if you go to bed at 10 pm, make sure you don't eat past 8 pm in order to get more restful sleep. If you can eat all of your daily nutrition in an 8-hour window each day you'll experience the many health benefits that have been linked to intermittent fasting.

Eat Smaller Meals

Try to eat 3-5 smaller meals per day instead of a couple of large ones. Overeating increases your chances of being outside your target body weight and also forces the body to spend precious energy on digestion.

Eat Clean

Start saying "no" to fast food and foods rich with processed carbs. Start cutting out sugary foods and choose dark chocolate when you're in the sweets section of the grocery store. Eating clean, whole foods will also promote a healthier GI system.

How Chiropractic Helps Veterans

Did you know that chiropractic treatments offer some distinct benefits to veterans in particular? It's true! Not only do chiropractic treatments help with neck, back, and leg pain, but treatments also offer a plethora of additional health benefits that Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center will go over in a little more detail below.

Drug-Free Pain Relief

In today's opioid crisis getting drug-free relief for pain that comes up in everyday life can be easier said than done. A chiropractor will never try to give you prescription drugs to solve your problem -- we treat the whole individual to root out pain and discomfort for good.

Improved Cognitive Function

As we advance in age, and especially after experiencing trauma on any level, it's important to keep your mind and body firing on all cylinders. Chiropractic treatments help clear up the communication channels between the mind and body. Adjustments have also been shown to improve mood!

Better Sleep

Chiropractic treatments also benefit those who experience less than restful sleep, helping the body achieve stasis and calm. Patients with insomnia have even shown improvements in their sleep.

If you have any additional questions about how chiropractic treatments benefit veterans, contact Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center today. We have a long track record of keeping our patients healthy and well.

Chiropractic for Mature Adults and Seniors

Chiropractic treatments offer many distinct benefits to patients who are more advanced in age. As we get older, life can tend to catch up with us, resulting in pains and aches that maybe weren't there before. But, you don't have to sit there and take it. Chiropractic treatments offer many distinct benefits, including drug-free pain relief. Below, Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center goes over some of the ways our treatments can benefit seniors.

Increased Range of Motion

Chiropractic adjustments will loosen up muscle tension and relieve joint pain, helping you increase your range of motion.

Improved Mood

None of us want to end up being the crabby elderly person, so it's important to stay on top of chiropractic treatments, which help improve mood, not to mention help keep you healthy and in the game, which will brighten each and every day.

Boosted Immune System

It's a sad fact of reality that as we age our internal systems tend to feel some of the pressure. Our immune system is no exception. Chiropractic treatments help activate the nerves that communicate with your GI tract as well as boost your immune system functionality.
