Helping to Build Better Back Health

Family walking on cliffside path holding hands and smilingWhen life gets busy, don’t forget to take stop and assess.  The Ontario Chiropractors Association outlines five components that you should make sure are part of your lifestyle:

Standing Tall

Research has shown that good posture not only prevents pain and injuries but also gives you more energy and improves your appearance and your mood.  That’s why having an expert look at how posture affects your muscles, bones and joints can have a big impact on your quality of life. Your chiropractor can show you how to develop and use good posture when typing, driving, running, playing sports and carrying children.

Moving Well

When your body is stiff and not very flexible, it is easier to become injured and more difficult to recover. By teaching you simple exercises and stretches designed for your needs, a chiropractor can help you regain your full range of motion.

Getting the Right Fuel

Consistently eating well is a challenge whether you’re an athlete, a stay-at-home mom or an office worker. One of the best ways to sort through your options is to get customized advice from a health practitioner who understands you and your daily needs. Chiropractors are trained in nutrition and holistic health and can help you find a diet that is right for you.

Staying Active

While sitting may not seem harmful, too much sitting takes quite a toll on our lower back and neck. Exercise can help to undo this damage while also benefitting your muscles and your heart. If you’re struggling to find the time for fitness, Canada’s chiropractors are here for you. Straighten Up Canada! is a 3-minute-a-day program for adults and kids that includes posture exercises and stretches to keep you flexible and strong.

A Good Night’s Sleep

Sleep is important to your health, both for your body and your mind. No matter whether you sleep on your back, your side or your stomach, the right pillow and mattress will help you support your spine so you can be truly relaxed and refreshed while you sleep. If you’re having trouble sleeping, your chiropractor can be part of the solution.
