Those who make chiropractic a part of their life often just feel better. The aches and pains they experience are diminished, they move more easily, and they suffer less. Some even claim to find immediate relief after a single adjustment. If you want to to start the year feeling great, a visit to the chiropractor might be in order.

New Year’s Resolutions

Here are seven steps you can take to improve the health of your spine and your overall wellness.

1. Get at least 30 minutes of daily exercise. Many of the benefits of regular exercise can be experienced with as little as 30 minutes of physical activity a day.

2. Eat your greens. Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli and kale, which are rich in calcium, can help to decrease your risk of osteoarthritis. Spinach, lentils, and beans are high in magnesium, a vitamin shown to benefit patients with back pain.

3. Lose weight. Carrying extra weight increase the load on your spine and joints, making you more susceptible to sciatica, disc herniation, and osteoarthritis.

4. See a chiropractor. The spine plays an important role in your overall health by ensuring that your nervous system is functioning smoothly. As spinal specialists, chiropractors do not only relieve pain from spinal conditions, they can also assist in improving your overall health. Research has shown that chiropractic adjustments reduce the stress hormone cortisol and boost the presence of infection-fighting antibodies in the body.

The holidays are a joyous time for many people, but the additional stress might affect you more than you even realize. The holidays are a time when expectations are high, timelines are tight, and you may be expected to hang out with family, work associates or friends you aren’t comfortable with.  With all of the hustle, bustle and pressure, many people are struggling to get through the holidays with their sanity. Chiropractic care can alleviate the strain and depression that naturally comes with the “most wonderful time of the year.”

According to the APA, stress and the holidays often go hand-in-hand for people who are trying to balance their schedules and fit everything in. A Stress in America survey found that nearly a quarter of all adults report experiencing extreme stress. Over a third of adults have reported increased stress just within the past year. The Mayo clinic reports that “stress and depression can ruin your holidays and hurt your health… When stress is at its peak, it's hard to stop and regroup.”


Promote Healthy Lifestyles For Your Patients

At Pasadena college, students learn how to help their patients during the seasonal changes that may occur in their lives. Chiropractors should encourage their patients to continue healthy habits so that they feel good over the holidays. To help patients discover their points of tension and relax in areas where they aren’t even aware they are holding stress, chiropractors should explore tight points and consider extra treatments with the increased stress that a patient may be facing.
