Simple Ways to Maintain Your Spine Health
Our spine might not be the first part of our body that we think of when we think about fortifying our overall wellness and setting ourselves up for a healthy life. However, your spine is linked to many bodily processes, and when your spine becomes compromised or injured, it can disrupt processes like your sinuses, your nervous system, your immune system, your GI tract, and more.
Below, Espinosa Family Chiropractic goes over a few ways to keep your spine strong and healthy.
Start Your Yoga Practice
It doesn’t matter if you take a class or do yoga at home, it’s important to stretch your body to release tension and improve flexibility and range of motion. Yoga also offers drug-free pain relief and is a great companion with chiropractic adjustments.
Eat Well and Hydrate
Eating well and hydrating will help ensure your body is running at 100%, not to mention help you maintain a healthy body weight that will help support your spine.
Build Your Back
Start engaging your core, which means working your core muscle group (your back, midsection, etc.). As your back and neck build strength, you’ll begin to feel off if you don’t exercise your back and neck.
Visiting the chiropractor is also a great way to help maintain the health of your spine. To learn more about our treatments for the entire family, contact Espinosa Family Chiropractic today to schedule your consultation.

Chiropractic for Your Digestive Health
Chiropractic treatments are known to help the back, neck, joints, even the legs, but it is less commonly known that chiropractic adjustments actually help with a number of other health problems or dysfunctions as well.
Chiropractic treatments have been shown to benefit the GI system as well, helping your digestive system function at optimum capacity.
Why Subluxations Affect the Digestive System
Pressure that occurs in the nervous system which results from subluxation (otherwise called spine misalignment) is believed to play a significant role in digestive problems.
Subluxations can affect the way your body digests and absorbs nutrients. That’s why it’s important to pursue chiropractic adjustments, which help align the spine and positively effects your GI system, immune system, sinuses, and more.

Tips for Keeping Your Child Engaged
As holidays like Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year come around, it might be a little more difficult for your child to stay engaged when it comes to school and building their foundation. However, there are simple measures you can take to ensure that your child is motivated and focused on what matters as we come to the close of the calendar year.
Below, Espinosa Family Chiropractic goes over a few ways to keep kids engaged when their focus may be dwindling.
Add Some Incentive
It might seem like an absurd idea to give your child incentive when Halloween and Christmas are around the corner, however, giving your child a goal to accomplish and rewarding such an accomplishment should be seen as an isolated thing. It’s an effective tool to get a great push out of your child’s productivity.
Stay on Top of Sleep
Lack of focus might even come down to a lack of sleep. Make sure that your child is getting 9 hours of sleep every night, no matter what.
Let Them Choose
If your child lacks motivation and inspiration, let them take up a new constructive hobby, like playing an instrument, or learning a new language. Let them choose what they engage in to ensure they stay motivated.
Chiropractic adjustments are also a great way to boost your child’s cognition and mental focus. Contact Espinosa Family Chiropractic to learn more.
How to Set Goals for the Coming Year
Even though it’s only October, the new year will be here before you know it. This means that everyone is crafting their new year’s resolutions, and when we make our new year’s resolutions, it’s hugely important to set realistic goals that still push you to new heights.
Below, Espinosa Family Chiropractic goes over a few ways to more intelligently and effectively set and achieve the goals you make in the coming year.
Start Something New
Instead of getting even better at something you’re already good at, set a goal to get better at something that you’re horrible at. It is a character-building experience to start out at something and be horrible at it, then slowly put in the work and effort to get good!
Stop Setting Aesthetic Goals
Instead of setting a goal to shed a specific amount of pounds or take X amount of inches off your waistline, set goals that are more geared toward feeling great. If you’re feeling great, it’s going to be hard not to look good, right?
Set Realistic and Unrealistic Goals
Instead of simply setting goals you know you’re bound to achieve, set a few elusive goals that you won’t likely be able to complete. It’s important to always have room for improvement as each year comes to a close.
Chiropractic at Any Stage of the Game
Did you know that chiropractic treatments are effective as a drug-free pain management protocol as well as an overall wellness supplement for patients of all ages and from all walks of life?
