Vital Energy Wellness & Chiropractic Center would like to bring up chiropractic care and how it relates to the Oscars ceremony, Hollywood’s signature awards event held every year.
When we think of the stars, we think of million dollar smiles that cost tens of thousands of dollars to maintain. We think of boisterous hair styles and ostentatious gowns and tuxedos worn by tinsel town’s A-listers.
But did you know that celebrities and public figures worth their salt spend just as much time on their bodies as they do on their skin and teeth? It’s true. Many celebrities take on demanding roles where they have to be in peak physical shape. If you’re playing a lithe, sporty jewel thief opposite Jennifer Lawrence, then it’s important you look the part, right?
Many actors depend on regular visits to the chiropractor in order for their bodies to handle the 12+ hour workdays on set.
Leonard DiCaprio takes advantage of chiropractic care. So does Arnold Schwarzenegger, Cindy Crawford, and even top notch athletes like Tom Brady and Tiger Woods.
SpineUniverse.com asserts that chiropractic adjustments are performed more than 1 million times each business day. More and more people are utilizing chiropractic care to look and feel their best.

People in fitness and wellness circles are starting to ditch the beefcake Venice Beach aesthetic. Of course, if you can achieve that sort of look, then good on you. But more and more, flexibility and versatility are being celebrated in today’s society. You might hear of many retreating to the mountains, the lake, or the woods to get their exercise in. You might hear of friends of both sexes taking yoga classes as well. It’s all a good idea, if you make sure to take safe precautions.
It’s multitasking, really, the idea of getting back to nature, back to the basics, and also doing something that happens to get the heart rate up. You get that fresh air while you're at it. Instead of staring at yet another screen on a treadmill, you’re actually binge-watching majestic mother nature.
Make sure you pick the right backpack. Here’s a pretty sweet article from Prevention.com highlighting spine-friendly backpacks for your consideration. Make sure you stretch really well before you set out on the trail. Wear proper footwear -- it’s also worth it to spring for gel soles. If you can manage, use walking poles for areas with uneven footing.
Paddleboarding is a great way to engage your core. You work your abs, your stabilizer muscles, even your back muscles. It’s a great low-impact activity for the joints, muscles, and tendons. Not to mention, it’s a great date option for the right type of someone (also a hilarious date option for the wrong type of someone), too.
Biking is considered a non-weight bearing exercise. Just make sure to keep your back straight and make sure your seat is properly adjusted. Try to avoid rough, uneven surfaces.

Even if you experience a host of additional conditions, Vital Energy Wellness & Chiropractic Center treats everything from low back pain to respiratory conditions.

It’s likely that if you live in the West, you’ve been snowboarding, skiing, ice skating, or have taken part in some such form of recreation. You’ve even likely taken part personally in some sort of winter activity that is being exhibited in the 2018 Olympic Games (or XXIII Olympic Winter Games, or the more commonly known PyeongChang 2018).
Even if you haven’t, you can fall victim to back pain in the winter. It can happen with something as simple as shoveling snow.
Your muscles stiffen in the cold weather. You might be more likely to sleep in during the winter, which means you might shirk your morning routine and head quickly out the door, off to work. Even in those moments you can experience a back injury that curbs you from being productive.
One way to get your body ready for an activity, or even to start the day, is to take an extra 10-20 minutes to stretch your body. Try to incorporate some yoga-style moves into your mix and you’ll quickly find that it can often be a mini-workout.
If you’re Netflixing a bunch, make sure to get up every episode or two to move positions, maybe to throw a couple of stretch moves. Your friend, roommate, or partner might look at you weird, but so what?
Figure out an at-home exercise routine that works for you, if you don’t feel like sweating it out at the neighborhood gym. Gyms are good for their versatility -- many gyms have pools, yoga and spin classes, basketball courts, and all sorts of variety into your routine. Either way, staying active and engaging your core really helps your back stay in tip-top shape.
Hope some of this helps! But if you need to get straightened out, contact Vital Energy Wellness & Chiropractic Center. Our purpose is to help and heal our patients. We treat everyone in your family like they’re family.
Back problems can happen to you no matter what your vocation is. Stay at home Dad, Soccer Mom, Young and Bustling Professional, Carpenter -- back problems are the great equalizer. The Good Body asserts that 8 out of 10 people in the US will have a back problem at some point in their lives. We'd like to help our patients and readership avoid this fate.
Practice some of these tips below to increase back strength and promote spine health.
You don't really have to drop a bunch of coin on yoga classes every month. If you can fit that into budget, we highly recommend. But there's also a plethora of videos online. Yoga with Adriene is a fantastic resource. She has videos for both seasoned vets and pure beginners. Even if you decide to opt out of yoga, you should incorporate a back-friendly stretch routine into your mornings and evenings.
Tucking in your belly button helps promote great posture while you're sitting at the desk or in the lotus position. If you incorporate deep belly breathing, this helps improve posture and enables nerves in the spine to move through spinal channels. This will cut down on back pain and increase your overall sense of well-being.
Exercising is fine, just make sure you're practicing good form. Push-ups and pull-ups are great for the upper body and help strengthen your back as well. Any time you can get a workout using your body weight, we support that.
Lastly, meditation, cutting down on caffeine, and committing yourself to sticking to a solid sleep routine will all help promote mental clarity, and you'll give your body the time it needs to recharge for the next day.
If your body is feeling anything less than 100%, contact Vital Energy Wellness & Chiropractic Center Inc. at (303) 229-5374. We're committed to getting you back on your feet and active again.
