Wellness Care Is Important

Millions of Americans have not only found relief from pain through chiropractic, but also a pathway to wellness with chiropractic's natural, drug-free approach to healthcare.

It is common in our culture to accept a slow decline in health as we age, but it is also unnecessary. We now have information and the advances in the field of health and wellness to live a life of optimal health which, contrary to popular belief, can actually get better as we grow older.

How Lifestyle Affects Overall Wellness in Athens

The decisions we make and the actions we take in each moment of our day affect our bodies and can slowly produce problems that may not show symptoms.

  • What we eat
  • How we sit
  • How we sleep
  • The work that we do with our bodies
  • The way we emotionally react to a situation

These can have long-term impacts on our wellness. If you spend your days sitting at a desk, the way you hold your head or place your arms can have a major impact, not only on your neck and shoulders, but also on your whole body.

Your spinal column, made up of 24 independent vertebrae, is what allows your body to move, twist, and bend through every motion of your busy day. It also encases and helps protect the delicate central nervous system that controls and coordinates every muscle, tissue and organ of the body. This is why we believe the first step to an active lifestyle is a properly functioning spine.

When vertebrae become misaligned there are dozens of possible impacts upon our health. This also goes for how we hold emotions in the body. If we are chronically tensing our shoulders due to stress or anxiety, this can once again impact the spine and the rest of the body. As you can see, even if we don't feel sick, we may be in need of a little extra care to prevent daily activities from becoming more severe problems.

Why We Need Wellness Care

Health can be defined as the body functioning properly rather than just feeling good. You may not feel sick today, but if your nervous system is being impeded from sending messages to other organs and systems in the body, things may not be working as well as they could be.

Through a regular wellness care program that works to restore and maintain spinal health and mobility, people often find that they have more energy and do not get sick as often. When the nervous system is functioning properly the benefits are endless:

  • Digestion
  • Sleep
  • Blood Flow
  • Lung Capacity / Breathing
  • Heart Rate
  • Immune System Function
  • Less Allergies
  • Focus
  • Athletic Performance
  • Overall Mobility

These are just some of the body’s functions that are positively impacted by a spine that is properly aligned.

Chiropractic Treatment as Part of a Wellness Care Plan

Chiropractic treatments work to keep the integrity of the nervous system intact and are an excellent choice as a part of a wellness care plan. Regular, gentle adjustments can ensure that the daily impacts of your life are not wearing your health down over time.
