It’s that time of year again when everyone is setting out New Year’s Resolutions and unfortunately it won’t be long till a majority of people start breaking them. There are many reasons why New Year Resolutions don’t stick- they may be unrealistic, there is a lack of self-discipline or life gets “too busy”. Our New Year resolution is all about you and what we can do to make 2018 a healthy and pain-free year for you. Our goal is not only to maintain but also to improve the high standard of care you’ve experienced with us so that you can be A Better You.
As part of our resolution, we are going to teach you how to live a healthy, pain-free life. Your success is ours, and we are committed to your health and well-being to help you be A Better You.
In many cases there is more than one factor contributing to your pain, especially if it is recurrent or has been there for a long time. Often getting rid of your pain is the easy part. Stopping it from coming back is the real challenge. Our goal is to provide you with lasting freedom from pain, so your treatment program will include specific techniques and exercises that correct the underlying cause of your problems, not just give you temporary relief.
Chiropractic care is valuable for you, and is valuable for your children. Kids are natural explorers – they run, jump, climb things, fall down, and bounce around. Kids are resilient – this ability to recover quickly is one of the great benefits of being very young. Occasionally, one of these activity-related injuries impacts a child’s spine. Nothing obvious may happen and nothing may hurt … at the time. But there may be subtle injuries to spinal muscles and spinal ligaments that have a long-term effect on spinal nerve function and possibly the spinal structure also.
Regular chiropractic checkups help keeps you in tip-top shape. Those who are active, have stressful lives, or want to be their very best, find that a schedule of preventative visits are helpful in the maintenance of good health and for keeping your body functioning at its best.
Now it’s your turn to make 2018 a healthy and pain-free year!
Stretch of the Month
Whether you are a novice or an expert in exercising, it is essential to warm up and stretch before you exercise.
Warming up is necessary as it helps to prepare your body for exercises by increasing your heart rate and improving blood circulation. It even prepares you mentally for your workout.
- Stand upright and march in place 20 to 30 times. Move your arms up and down in conjunction with your leg movements. Do not tighten your fists.
- Next, march forward and backward 20 to 30 times.
- Do this for 60 seconds.

Stop Making Excuses & Learn How to Be Healthy!
Get-in-shape goals tend to fizzle as early as the third week of January, per recent data based on Facebook searches. Yet some keep at it. What’s their secret? People who are successful are more likely to view fitness as a permanent lifestyle change, not an activity they can give up once they reach a number on the scale.
Raise the stakes Research shows that anticipating rewards may help you be more devoted to your goal. Sure, it’s a bribe of sorts, but experiment with promising yourself a mani-pedi after a week of true commitment, or a new gym outfit after two. Or put a penalty on the table: Promise to go TV-less for a week if you don’t follow through.
Take a time-out daily Vow to disconnect at least once a day. Close your eyes and take 10 deep breaths in your office, or crank up a soothing playlist on your commute.
