There's a sad truth to the fact that most people wait until an injury to undergo chiropractic treatment.
The reasons it's sad is because chiropractic treatments offer a host of benefits, including preventative medicine -- chiropractic care can help you reduce your chances of sustaining an injury, for instance.
Below we'll discuss a few additional reasons why chiropractic care is a good idea year round.
Day by day, whether you sit at a desk or walk around all day, your job is doing subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) damage to your body. If you have a desk job staring at a computer screen, it's likely that your neck and back are experiencing undue stress from the routine and sitting in awkward positions for long periods of time. Chiropractic treatments can help align your spine and reduce neck and back pain.
Subluxations (misalignments in the spine) can disrupt brain communication with the rest of the body. A simple adjustment can help brain functionality.

Vital Energy Wellness & Chiropractic Center Inc would like to celebrate Father's Day by going over a few ways that chiropractic care might be a unique and applicable gift idea. After all, many Dads out there work hard at what they do just like Moms do, hence the one day a year we celebrate their efforts.
One reason you might consider springing for one of our state of the art chiropractic techniques is because Dads are usually the last person to complain about an injury. That's why it might be up to you to get Dad the advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments he needs to optimize his body and mind.
Many people have their own ideas about the effectiveness of treatment, but chiropractic care is more prevalent today than ever because it gets results without resorting to prescription drugs or risky surgery. Treatment is more effective and safer because of modern advancements in chiropractic techniques. Dad might shy away from mumbo jumbo, but he won't be able to ignore the results he gets from chiropractic treatment.
Maybe Dad believes in playing despite injury, or maybe he hasn't experienced an injury that takes him out of the game. Either way, professional chiropractic care can both help prevent Dad from getting injuried in addition to treating back and spine pain.
Chiropractic care is often only used to treat pain or inury, but it's actually a crucial compoenent of achieving optimal health. Your spine is at the core of everything, which is why you have to take special measures to ensure spine and back health.

Back pain and kidney pain often get confused because the kidneys are located toward the back and underneath the ribcage. It can often be hard to tell where the pain is coming from and what to attribute your condition.
That's why Vital Energy Wellness & Chiropractic Center Inc would like to discuss some differences between the two in order to help you self-diagnose your situation. Of course, if it all seems too complicated to you, you can always book a consultation with an experienced chiropractic care specialist in Arvada, CO -- preferably Vital Energy!
Kidney pain is most often going to be felt at the flank, on either side of the spine (between your bottom set of ribs and your hips. Pain will most often occur on one side of the body, but it's not completely abnormal to experience pain in both sides simultaneously.
Kidney pain will usually be very sharp, (with, say, a kidney stone), or it can be dull (if you have, say, an infection). The pain is most often a constant type that increases with movement.
Back pain is actually far more common than kidney pain -- usually sourcing the pain in the muscles, bones, or even the nerves in the back. Back pain is expansive because it can occur anywhere on the back, and even the buttocks. Muscle pain will feel dull. If you've experienced nerve damage you might feel a sharp, burning sensation which can travel all the way down the leg. Back pain can be acute or chronic.
With educational resources like these, we can help our patients recognize the source of their pain and plan accordingly. Vital Energy not only offers chiropractic care and wellness services, but we also offer preventive medicine that could be the difference between injury and activity. Contact us today to learn more about how we can get you back to active again.
Summertime is a great season for being active. You can go out early in the morning and get a good run in before the heat of the day hits. You can hit up the mountains for a nice hike, or the lake for some fun in the sun. However, some activities are better than others when it comes to wear and tear on your body.
Below are a few activities that are especially spine-friendly. Vital Energy Wellness & Chiropractic Center Inc. is all about providing preventive medicine in addition to comprehensive Chiropractic Care and holistic wellness treatments.
Rock climbing, as long as it's done safely, can be tremendously beneficial for your back. For one, you're incorporating muscles in your back that you likely don't use much on a daily basis, which will help fortify your body against injuries that can occur. Rock climbing is also low impact.
Paddleboarding is an activity gaining in popularity. First off, it's incredibly fun. It's also incredibly scenic, paddling out in the middle of a pristine lake. Paddleboarding also engages your core, which is incredibly important for back and spine health.
The benefits that a rigorous yoga routine can give to your back are endless. Tai Chi is also a form of exercise that has gained in popularity as a way to relieve and manage lower back pain, spine misalignment, and neck pain. Both of these activities help drive mind/body balance.
And, of course, the best way to make sure that your spine stays in line this Summer is to incorporate Chiropractic Care into your activities. It's a fantastic way to stay on top of your body's maintenance and relieve pain the drug-free way.
Generally, whenever a patient receives treatment of any sort, they want to enjoy the benefits of said treatment for as long as possible, if not in perpetuity. But, the sobering fact about your spine, your neck, and your back is that they all go through a tremendous amount of wear and tear on a daily basis.
Depending on what you do for a living, whether that means staring at a computer all day at an odd angle while sitting in an uncomfortable, less-than-accommodating chair, or lifting heavy objects in an awkward fashion, or even staying suspended in an unnatural position. Even our pursuits outside of work take a toll on our bodies -- things like wakeboarding, playing hoops, even gardening.
So, Vital Energy Wellness and Chiropractic Center Inc thought it would be a great idea to go over some ways that you can extend the life of your chiropractic treatment, whether that be a spinal correction, a chiropractic adjustment, corrective exercise, or any other service we offer.
Incorporating a rigorous stretching routine will extend the life of your chiropractic care benefits. If you can set aside 30-60 minutes to get some deep stretching -- incorporating yoga-like poses if you're able -- either at the beginning or the end of the day (or even both!), you'll be doing your body a great service.
We think of water for the skin benefits as well as the fact that we need it right after exercise. But water is also key for lubricating the body, especially your joints and discs. Whatever you weigh, try to drink half that in ounces of water (160 pounds = 80 oz of H2O).
Making sure that you keep good posture is key for your back, your spine, and your neck. Watch out for cheap work chairs -- see if you can invest in something more ergonomic, something designed to take care of your back, spine, and neck.
Of course, the best way to experience amazing spine health and wellness is to stay on top of it, just like you should do with cardio, meditation, even yoga. Chiropractic Care is meant to be a continuous process, not just a one-off treatment. That's why Vital Energy makes our services easily available and affordable for just about any budget.
