Keeping Your Body In Motion

    Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Keeping Your Body In Motion

One of the secrets of a healthy lifestyle is keeping your body in motion. Motion keeps strength in the muscles so that they can support your body. Motion allows your joints to stay well lubricated and adequate flexibility. When we are in motion our bodies produce hormones which can give us energy and can positively affect your mood. When you stop moving our bodies become stiff, achy and loose the flexibility. If you allow this to proceed to long then the effect will not only cause muscle and joint pains, but can also affect the other systems of the body.   Cardiovascular decay, hormone level imbalances, digestive problems and immune issues can become compromised. So the goal for all my chiropractic patients is to keep their bodies moving.

 Now this sounds simple and you are most certainly right, it should be. Here are some helpful tips to keep your body moving on a regular basis every day. First the goal is to make moving part of your daily routine. The more often you perform any task at a specific time the more ingrained in becomes on your daily schedule. Pick a specific time that you will get up and move for at least 20-30 minutes. Second no gym, equipment or scary instructions are required. Walking on your lunch break or taking small walks around your office every hour can be beneficial. Finally have fun with this. Challenge yourself or change up your route so you don’t get bored.  You can go to a Chandler chiropractic clinic to find out more about this subject.

Chiropractic for Common Bowling Injuries

    Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Chiropractic for Common Bowling Injuries

Bowling can be a great activity that promotes moving your body as well as good quality time spent with your family. Bowling can be enjoyed from the time you can walk all the way to your elder years. I have bowled for over 20 years and I was introduced to this wonderful sport by my father.  We use to go bowling every Friday night when I was younger and I always enjoyed it. While bowling is fun and exciting, injuries can occur that may limit you from playing. Knee pain is a very common injury for bowlers and I have definitely had my fair share. When throwing a bowling ball you tend to twist the body to produce power which can cause issues with your knees. 

Another common injury for bowlers is elbow pain especially lateral epicondylitis. This injury occurs when you repetitively do the same motion and is common due to the heavy ball that is thrown.  Low back pain is also another very common injury for bowlers. This can be caused by several different factors including repetitive movements, bending over or twisting wrongly or throwing too heavy of a bowling ball. The best advice for those avid bowlers and even for those weekend bowlers to avoid injuries finding a good chiropractor will help save you on  those days that you’re not feeling like making that 300.

If you have ever played a contact sport you understand that injuries are pretty common. American football, soccer, rugby, hockey, baseball and even basketball are all considered contact sports. Injuries occur from player running or hitting into each other, tripping each other or even just trying change directions as to avoid another player. While there is a vast era of injuries that occur during a contact sport event here are the most common. Lower extremity injuries include but are not limited to; turf toe, ankle sprain, knee ligament injuries, hip ligament injuries, muscle strains, fractured bones and lacerations. Depending on the severity of the injuries they can require an emergency room visit or simply going to your local south Chandler chiropractor for a care.   

Upper body and extremity injuries include but are not limited to; wrist/elbow/shoulder ligament damage, fracture of the arm bones or ribs, dislocation of the upper extremity joints, muscle strains or tears, vertebral misalignments, and even intestinal or abdominal injuries. Again depending on the severity of the injury will determine the degree of care. Finally you have neck and head injuries that include but are not limited to; neck sprains and strains, black eyes, cut lips and even concussions. Concussions have become a hot topic especially for such sports as American football, soccer and rugby. This is a very serious injury that needs to be addressed by someone that is very family with diagnosing and treating these issues.  For more information, check out my favorite Chandler chiropractic office.

Ways To Help Manage Your Stress

    Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Ways To Help Manage Your Stress

There are many different ways we can handle stressful situations.  Some reactions to stress can be harmful to your health and affect your immune system, give you headaches and depression.  However there are positive ways to handle stress or prevent it from becoming a negative situation.  Time management is a great way to prevent stressful situations from occurring.  Making list can help you organize, keep focused and prioritize what needs to be done first.  Not everything has to be done in a day, it’s okay to transfer unfinished items on tomorrow's list.  Preparing for yourself for the following day the night before can also help your morning to run smoother.  I like to look and see what the weather is going to be like so I can plan out my outfit.  I also get my snack bag together and put any items I need the following day next to my keys and purse.  

Getting regular exercise is also another way to help manage stress levels.  Exercise can be as simple as a 30 minute walk or as intense as a boot camp.  When you exercise you increase blood flow and oxygen in the body, as well as decrease chances for cardiovascular disease or diabetes.  If you can’t always find the time for a class or make it to the gym, you can work out from home.  There are so many online videos you can watch and do your work out at home.  Getting a monthly massage and adjustment with your San Deigo Chiropractor can be a great way to help manage stress.  Stress can cause misaglinments in the spine and put compression on nerves which can cause addional negative symptoms.  San Diego Chiropractors agree when the nervous system is free of interference people are happier, get sick less often and just feel better! 

Getting out and enjoying nature is a great way to keep stress levels low.  Connecting with the earth and disconnecting from technology at least once a week will help your mind and body to reset.  While you are out enjoying nature, take a moment to sit and meditate.  This is a great way to help clear the mind and work toward inner peace.  For the first 5 minutes of my meditation I like to focus on breath and take long mindful inhales and exhales.  Slow mindful breathing can help with stress and anxiety.  We will always have stresses in our lives, how we deal with it can make all the difference!  Stay positive!
