Ergonomic Gift Ideas

When choosing which gifts we should give our loved ones this year, it's important to keep everyone's wellness in mind. Purchasing gifts that keep our health in mind are the types of gifts that keep on giving. Below are a few ergonomic gift ideas that anyone can benefit from.

Ergonomic Office Chair

This might be a more expensive gift idea, but purchasing a chair that helps a loved one hold perfect posture would benefit those who work demanding schedules in front of a computer.

Foot Pads

Footpads are a great idea for those who have standing desks. There are all sorts of options that provide cushion and some that even have massage surfaces.

Standing Desk Converter

If you know someone with a sit-down desk, a standing desk converter kit will be an awesome gift idea.

Chiropractic treatments are a great compliment for adjusting to new ergonomic products that you incorporate into your home and office. Contact Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center today to schedule a consultation for you or a loved one.

It's the End of the Year, Did You Take Advantage of Your Health Insurance?

As the end of the year approaches it's important to take a close look at your health insurance. If you've already paid up to your deductible, it's a great idea to get in some health services before your deductible resets at the beginning of the coming year. 

If you have any sort of extensive needs toward the end of the year, it might even be a good idea to get them done now, that way you don't risk getting close to your annual maximum at the beginning of the year. You want to make sure that you get the coverage you need year-round.

Chiropractic adjustments are viable treatments to get during this time of year as the holiday stressful season steamrolls toward us. Chiropractic treatments are covered by many health insurance plans, and we always try to work with our patients to ensure our treatments come in at agreeable prices that fit just about any budget.

Contact us this week or next to get your adjustment in before your health care plan resets at the beginning of the year. Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center has a long track record of providing drug-free wellness treatments that get undeniable results for the entire family.

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.
