It's unfortunate that many people out there in the world equate Chiropractic Care with old age, something that a person really only has to consider once they start having problems with their back and spine.
This simply is not the case. Chiropractic Care provides a host of benefits to those who decide to pursue it early on in their lives. A person might have problems and not even know it, too. Subluxations can occur and vertebrae can be forced out of alignment without you being aware. A proper spine alignment can change the way your neurons send messages to your entire body, making more seamless connections, helping you work and flow at an optimized level.
If you were a recent student, it's likely that you experienced your fair share amount of stress. Maybe you even felt overwhelmed, at times, which might have caused tension, muscle tightness, even headaches. Chiropractic adjustments should be explored in such cases. When you pair Chiropractic Care with massage therapy and overall wellness practices, you'll be surprised at how good and how loose you feel. Exploring the benefits of Chiropractic Care is a good way to live your best life, as the kids say these days.

Maybe you're working two jobs to pay the bills, or maybe you're a high-powered executive with a Fortune 500 company -- in this day and age, more and more people are glorifying sacrificing sleep in order to get a little bit ahead in life.
Lack of sleep can lead to numerous health problems and diseases that can affect your daily life and even drive you to an early death. It's a harsh statement, but it's the truth. It's amazing how the healthcare industry often fails us when it comes to properly informing the public about the extreme consequences of sleep deprivation.
During sleep, our bodies produce certain hormones that provide appetite control. Those of us who sleep less than 6 hours nightly are far more likely to have a higher BMI (body mass index) than those of us who get 8 hours of shut-eye nightly. Too little sleep? Lack of sleep upsets hormone balance and also drives up insulin secretion after meals. High levels of insulin equals weight gain and also increases risk for diabetes.
When you're not getting enough sleep, you're not firing on all cylinders, which can affect your work, but it can also affect your driving skills. Sleepy drivers are common causes of automobile accidents, which can land you at your local chiropractor's office or far worse.
Continuous sleep deprivation has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease. We're just now starting to learn how huge a role a good night’s sleep plays in clearing out beta-amyloid from your brain that you accumulate throughout the day. Beta-amyloid is a metabolic waste product that is found in fluid between neurons, and a build-up of such impairs brain function and increases risk of Alzheimer's.
At Vital Energy Wellness & Chiropractic Center Inc. we believe in educating our patients about the ways that they can set themselves up for healthy lives. We provide chiropractic care services, weight loss counseling, health and wellness services, and more. Call 303-229-5374 to schedule your initial consultation today.
Tech Neck is a very real problem in our increasingly connected society, when many of us spend long periods of time in front of computers, or gaze down at our handheld devices, like our phones, tablets, and eReaders. It comes at a particular price to our necks.
We call this specific problem Tech Neck because the pain we experience is directly attributed to our technology use. Our society doesn't seem like it's getting any less dependent on technology, which is why we thought we'd give you some information about how to fight tech neck, which will enhance your back, neck, and spine in the process.
Over-emphasize a slouching position, rolling your shoulders forward and bending your neck forward. Then, do the opposite and roll your shoulders backward while pointing your chin toward the ceiling.
You can also raise up your arms for overhead reaches and incorporate neck rolls, clockwise and counter clockwise. But Make sure that you do it slowly and gently as jerky movements will not help the situation and could end up straining your neck.
Try to get up from your chair at least once every hour. The idea is to change movement and position every 20 minutes or so, but we also know you have to be productive at work. But if your boss is giving you trouble for getting up once an hour, maybe it's time to brush up the resume.
Although these practices will certainly help your situation, some neck pain might be there to stay. In such cases, contact Vital Energy Wellness & Chiropractic Center Inc. at 303-229-5374. We provide drug-free, holistic solutions for neck pain, back and spine pain, even leg pain. Call today to schedule your consultation.
Self care is a term that's all the rage with the young folks. But what do some of us really mean when we say that we're taking the time to look out for ourselves?
Schools of social work tend to categorize self-care as activities or practices that people engage in regularly that reduces stress -- all as a way to maintain balance, enhance happiness, and lead to long-term and short-term healthy living.
Many of us are confined to the workplace for 40+ hours a week, which can often lead to happy hour on Fridays -- if not sooner. So often we chase the easy fix, which can mean a few hours spent at the pub. Sounds like a great way to burn off steam, right? Well, maybe not.
What if you decided to completely change your daily habits? What if self-care looked like taking a yoga class 3x per week? What if self-care looked like reading a book at the park, or taking your weekly aggressions out on a punching back, a running trail, or a personal trainer?
The important thing to do is to re-examine what you're doing when you need to get away from it all. Those things that you do when you want to decompress could be serving you a lot better than a hazy night of drinking with a steep bar tab to boot.
