What we learn

As we approach the beginning of a new year, we often take the time to reflect on the past year. We may take note of the great things we have accomplished as well as the things we need to improve upon and make more of a priority in the coming year. We think to ourselves, “what did I learn this year about myself ?” Maybe your body is changing, you might have aches and pains that you’ve never noticed before. Every year there is one thing we can usually guarantee, our body is changing.  

New year, a new resolution 

A popular new year resolution for people each year tends to be regarding health or weight loss. Whether it is starting a new diet or incorporating more exercise into your daily life, health and fitness tends seem to be a top priority when considering New Year’s resolutions. Health is something that is often taken for granted until it begins to suffer. Here at Taylor Wellness, we can help you with this resolution. Your chiropractor is a great resource in helping you live better and get healthier. Chiropractors can actually help with lower back pain, pregnancy pain, issues with digestion, neck pain and even headaches.  There are many ways that your chiropractor can help your body feel pain-free for the new year. Start off on the right foot, not the one that hurts every time you walk. 

How to make a good resolution

All too often people have great intentions of making resolutions and bettering themselves, but without the proper and realistic steps in place to achieve the goal, they will end up discouraged and the resolution postponed to the following year. If you have already made this year’s resolutions, be sure to examine them and ensure that they are realistic so that you are not feeling frustrated and guilty about your lack of success if you cannot follow through on them. Big ideas are amazing, but not for your new year’s resolution. Keep it small and simple, something that you can achieve and then make bigger goals. Don’t be afraid to make more than one resolution!

Include your chiropractor 

We want to help you succeed and make your resolutions a reality and not just a dream. The first step in doing so is assessing your goal for the new year and ensuring that it is specific, measurable, and attainable. After setting your goal, there needs to be a plan in place as to how that goal can be achieved and within a set timeframe. The more specific and measurable your goal is, the more likely you are to achieve it.

New Year’s resolutions are notorious for being easy to make yet hard to keep. Making a resolution to visit a chiropractor on a regular basis is one of the easier resolutions to keep. As you create this habit you will continue to keep up with the resolution as it not only is good for you but it feels great, can be convenient and doesn’t require you to sweat!

There are many things that your chiropractor can help you with to get your resolutions of living healthier underway. It’s much easier to live without constant back pain holding you back.

Did you know that an alignment of the spine promotes flexibility?

The alignment of your spine has significant impacts on your body. Your spine serves to not only keep the body balanced and upright but also to protect the central nervous system. Unfortunately, there are many factors that can cause misalignments without you even realizing it, other than the resulting side effects which can occur. These include anxiety, depression, headaches, low energy, fatigue, joint pain and numbness or tingling sensations. These are only some of the side effects that can be caused by a misaligned spine. By having regular chiropractic adjustments, you can restore your health and maintain it.

A lot of people don’t consider getting a chiropractic adjustment until they are already experiencing pain. There are many applicable reasons and benefits to getting regular adjustments prior to experiencing pain or discomfort. Chiropractic care can help you with losing weight or living a healthier life by involving chiropractic adjustments and psychology intertwined. We believe that it takes retraining both the body and the mind to be able to truly heal from a traumatic injury.

Do you suffer from?

We are here for you! Here at Taylor Wellness, we know how to get you back on track to living a pain-free life. Many Doctors recommend using spinal decompression to heal all of these pains but it’s often used as a back injury relief.

 

What is non-surgical spinal decompression?

It is a type of motorized traction that helps relieve back pain by gently stretching the spine. Using non-surgical spinal decompression takes the pressure off the spinal disk by changing the force and positions on the spine. There is a gel-like cushion in your spine between the bones and using non-surgical spinal decompression will release negative pressure and help you start the year off right. You can finally stop asking yourself why does my back hurt and start living your life pain-free.

Is non-surgical spinal decompression right for you?

Spinal decompression therapy is not recommended for anyone who is pregnant, has severe osteoporosis or severe obesity. Also if you’ve had spinal surgery with instrumentation (screws, metal plates or cages), it not recommended. If you’re worried if non-surgical spinal decompression therapy is right for you, worry no more! Come in for an examination and we will recommend the best service for you.

What causes back pain?

Often back pain happens at work because of repetitive posture or movement is staining to our spinal disk. Heavy lifting jobs, such as tradespeople, furniture movers, construction workers; puts a lot of strain on their back and spinal ligaments. Office administrator, accountant, graphic designer, and other office workers tend to strain their back from sitting at a desk all day without stretching their back. It’s good to start doing regular movement and stretching every hour to help your back from getting tight muscles and it will improve circulation in your spine.

Athletes, too?

Athletes might seem to think their health is so good, right? Why wouldn’t they? They are always being so active! However, they also struggle with back pain. At all big sports events, there are always chiropractors because athletes can hurt themselves so easily while they are doing whatever sport they do. Lower back pain is actually the most common reason athletes have to take time away from their sport. Dancers, gymnasts, swimmers, golfers, football players and weightlifters jobs involve a lot of stress on their back and cause spine and disc injuries that affect sports performances. Although you may not be a professional athlete, even just doing these sports in your spare time can take a toll on your spine.
