Happy May friends!🗓 Here at the office, we are really looking forward to warm days, greenery, and blossoms🌸. We’ve put together some health tips and activities to help you stay fit, stress-free, and healthy all season long. Continue reading to get an idea of what is happening at the office this month!🌈

Healthy Outdoor Activities:🌞

Warmer weather invites us outside for fresh air and fun. Hiking, cycling, and gardening are great ways to move your body and enjoy the sun. To keep you injury-free while staying active, remember to incorporate proper warm-ups and cool-downs, as well as chiropractic care, to support your joints and muscles! Watch this video specifically made by Dr. Michelle on how to reduce back pain so that YOU can be in your best form this season!🌼🏃🎣🚴

 

Posture for Gardening:🪴🪱

Gardening can be a relaxing and rewarding hobby, but it can also lead to strains. Here are some tips to maintain good posture while tending to your plants:

  • Bend your knees, not your waist, when lifting or reaching for something low.
  • Take breaks to stretch and move around.
  • Use kneeling pads or stools to ease pressure on your knees and back.

If you feel strain or discomfort, consider a chiropractic visit to relieve tension and maintain spinal health.

Stay tuned for gardening videos coming your way on our instagram and youtube over the next few months.

May is mental health awareness month!🧠

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, a time to focus on the importance of mental well-being and to de-stigmatize conversations about mental health. This month encourages individuals and communities to understand and address mental health issues, highlighting the significance of support, education, and resources. Remember, mental health is just as important as physical health, and seeking help or offering support can make a profound difference. Let’s take this opportunity to promote positive mental health practices and contribute to a healthier, more supportive society. Stay tuned on our instagram for a month filled with encouragment, awareness, and spreading the love.

Hydration and Spinal Health:🚰💦

With warmer days approaching, staying hydrated is essential for your spinal health. Dehydration can lead to muscle cramps and tension. Keep a water bottle on hand throughout the day to support both spinal and overall wellness. 

 

As always, let us know if you have any questions. Call or email to book your next appointment…we hope to see you soon!
