Corrective Chiropractic: Holiday Health Toll
The holiday season can be one of the unhealthiest times of the year for most Americans. From stressful family gatherings, holiday office parties, and dinner feasts, to traveling, lounging in the lazy chair, and countless hours spent at the mall – it can all add tremendous amounts of emotional and physical stress to our bodies. Studies show that Americans are prone to disease, fatigue, pain, and depression between mid-November and the start of the New Year. That’s why five of the top ten New Year’s resolutions involve getting healthier and happier.

Corrective Chiropractic: The Source of Fatigue

Corrective Chiropractic: The Source of Fatigue
Every day, millions of Americans suffer from lack of energy and fatigue. Unfortunately, most people resort to taking over the counter or prescription medication, drinking coffee or highly caffeinated beverages, or calling-in sick to school / work just to catch up on much needed rest. Over the past decade, major beverage companies have capitalized on this trend by producing and marketing a wide range of highly sugary and caffeinated energy drinks to “help” kids, teens, and adults cope with fatigue. Aside from the obvious side effects such as high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and even addiction, energy drinks dangerously mask the root cause of fatigue, and the disease or condition that created it in the first place. Giving your tired body caffeinated energy beverages for a temporary boost is like jump-starting your old car battery with the help of a tow truck. Sooner or later you have to look under...

Back Pain During Pregnancy

Back Pain During Pregnancy
Women often experience back pain during pregnancy as a result of weight gain and hormonal changes that relax the ligaments in the pelvis. However, being pregnant doesn’t mean you have to put up with an aching back. These simple steps can help you to maintain a healthy life while you’re expecting. Maintain proper posture This is a practice that’s always good to follow, but becomes even more critical when you’re pregnant. “Good posture” means that you’re standing with your back straight, your shoulders squared, your chin up, your chest out, and your stomach in, which will create a straight line from your ear to your ankle and that’s ideal posture. This can be difficult at first, if your body has gotten used to resting in a bad posture. Pretend that an invisible cord is attached to your head, pulling it up into alignment with your spine. Sleep on your side Sleeping...
