Vital Energy Wellness and Chiropractic Center Inc specializes in Chiropractic Care in Arvada, CO -- but that's not all we do. We also provide weight and nutritional counseling as well as mental and behavioral health services. It's a part of our comprehensive wellness package we offer our patients.

A big part of performing at optimum capacity is staying hydrated throughout the day. Medical Daily threw out an interesting number, that 75% of the population suffers from chronic dehydration. Whether the actual number is that high or not, the truth is, a lot of us aren't getting enough water out there.

Below are a few health consequences you'll experience if you're low on H2O. 

1.) Joint Pain

This is a big one and it's particularly related to chiropractic care. We always recommend to our patients to drink the requisite amount of water -- which is 1/2 your body weight in ounces, by the way. Around 80% of your cartilage composition is made up of water, and they become directly compromised when you're not getting enough water.

2.) Lack of H2O is Bad for Your Back

Dehydration affects the discs of your spinal column, which gives way to a condition you don't want to experience: herniated disc.

3.) Dehydration Lowers Your Energy Levels

In our current grind culture where many folks have to keep side hustles just to be prosperous, who can really afford to be functioning anything but their best out there in this competitive world. Dehydration will disrupt the heart's ability to pump blood that spreads oxygen to the body's cells, making it hard to achieve physical and mental wellness.

So, next time you're thirsty, make it a water. And if you stay hydrated and still experience back or joint pain, contact Vital Energy Wellness & Chiropractic Center Inc to schedule your consultation. We have a successful track record of getting (and keeping) our patients active.

Spinal misalignment or “vertebral subluxations” have to do with irregular mobility or a seismic shifting of the vertebrae.

When spinal misalignments occur, often a wide range of symptoms and diseases can present themselves, ranging from pain, reduced range of motion and mobility, inflammation, herniated discs, muscle spasms, and much much more.

But today Vital Energy and Wellness Chiropractic Center Inc would like to discuss what exactly causes vertebral subluxations (spine misalignments) in the first place.

Your spine misalignment might be due to a number of factors. The most common culprits might include:

  • Inactivity
  • Injury (Previous or Emergent)
  • Stress
  • Sudden, Jarring Movements/Accidents
  • Poor Posture
  • Improper Lifting Techniques
  • Obesity
  • Performing Repetitive Motions

Other causes might include sleeping in the wrong sort of position. We recommend patients to sleep on their sides, keeping both legs angled slightly up towards your chest, separating the knees/ankles with a pillow.

Poor diet and growth irregularities can also cause spine misalignment.

If you experience subluxation or any sort of back, neck, or leg pain, contact Vital Energy Wellness and Chiropractic Center Inc today. We have an over 30-year track record of getting patients back to active.

Vital Energy Wellness & Chiropractic Center Inc. always encourages our wide, diverse patient base to experiment and switch it up when it comes to their outdoor activities and their fitness routines.

As part of our new series, we'll be deconstructing an exercise/activity every week or two, tying it in when we can to how it relates to your back, spine, and core -- all of which are vital in keeping you mobile and well!

Build Strength and Endurance

Through rock climbing, you can build your upper body strength -- it's a fantastic compliment to running or biking! Don't worry, though, your lower body gets plenty of stimulation as rock climbing also involved intricate footwork.

Boost Brain Activity

Whether you're at your nearest bouldering cave or at an indoor facility, rock climbing requires problem-solving skills as climbers are tasked to figure out how to scale and traverse walls and cliffs.

Rock Climbing Reduces Stress

It's a known fact that exercising increases our levels of norepinephrine -- a chemical that balances our brain response to stress! It's also a meditation of sorts, ideally, as you focus only on the task at hand in order to complete the climb.

In closing, rock climbing is an activity we recommend to our patients, but only if they do it safely every step of the way. If you experience back, neck, or leg pain that persists, contact Vital Energy Wellness & Chiropractic Center Inc today to schedule your consultation.

Vital Energy Wellness & Chiropractic Center Inc is all about getting our diverse client base back to active again. Don't believe us? Dr. Wall has an over 30-year track record of successful treatments for patients of all ages and from all walks of life. One aspect of our treatment involves preventive medicine, which entails client education, which can help them avoid injuries down the road.

Strengthen Your Back

Sure, we're all about tried-and-true chiropractic care. Chiropractic adjustments play a huge role in body maintenance and also holistically treating injuries, but exercising your back and all of its muscles will help you stay active and avoid injury as well. Paddleboarding is one activity that will work your core stabilizer muscles while at the same time engaging your back.

Benefits of Paddleboarding

There are a host of benefits you can glean from taking up stand-up paddleboarding. 

First, you'll get a  ull body workout, incorporating just about every muscle in the body. You'll have to work to achieve balance while your leg muscles maintain stabilization, keeping your center of gravity. Your arms, back, and shoulders will be getting an amazing workout, too, propelling you and the paddleboard through the water. Your core, back and abdominal muscles will be constantly at work to keep your balance and keep you moving!

Paddleboarding is also low impact. You won't be doing the damage to your tendons and ligaments of your joints that you would with, say, running. Runners with shin splints or knee and hip pain especially gravitate towards this increasingly popular outdoor activity. It's a great exercise while you're well and while you're healing!

If you have back or spine pain that persists through your active lifestyle, it might be time to think about incorporating chiropractic care into your wellness practice. Contact Vital Energy Wellness & Chiropractic Center Inc to schedule your initial consultation.

Vital Energy Wellness & Chiropractic Center Inc isn't simply about providing Chiropractic Care. Well, that happens to be a large part of what we do over here at our facility, but we also take a comprehensive approach to providing overall wellness services, like weight loss and nutritional counseling, as well as automobile accident injury therapy, allergy treatment, and even mental health counseling.

This 4th of July many folks will be celebrating, which usually entails heading to the lake, the beach, or at the very least to a community center to view the fireworks. It's during these times that it is worthwhile to take good care of ourselves -- 4th of July happens to be an injury-prone event, believe it or not.

Read on for a few ways to reduce your chance of injury. 

Stretch Before Hitting the Beach!

If you plan on going to the beach, the mountains, or the lake, try to incorporate a stretch routine before you do anything strenuous. If you plan on going wakeboarding, paddleboarding, or anything of that nature, be especially sure to stretch.

Try to Eat Well

Usually, it's burgers and dogs on the roster, but if you can manage to incorporate a healthy diet plan into the 4th of July, you'll be a lot more satisfied with your results. Eating fresh, whole foods will energize you throughout the day, and hydrating will definitely help ensure a pleasant time as well as an easy recovery.

Be Judicious with Alcohol

Many people will be putting on their drinking hats for this occasion, but that's doesn't have to be you. Abstaining from alcohol or minimizing your intake will definitely mean the difference between having a memorable 4th of July or a sloppy Independence Day.

If you experience an injury to your back, spine, neck, or if you engage in an activity that puts your health in jeopardy, contact Vital Energy Wellness & Chiropractic Center today. We remain the number one chiropractic treatment center in Arvada, CO.
