Fall Wellness Tips

If you’re looking for ways to stay active and fit this Fall season, then Espinosa Family Wellness has you covered!

First, take your exercises outdoors, which will help you recharge a bit and get some fresh air. You’ll also find yourself working different muscles than you would on the treadmill since you’re not on a running track. You can either trail run outdoors or take your active recovery regiment outside to a secret nature spot. We won’t tell!

Next, try to incorporate some bonafide Fall flavors into your nutrition plan — and we don’t mean pumpkin spice lattes over here. Prepare some hearty roasted Fall vegetables — squash, zucchini, cabbage, and Brussels sprouts are all packed with essential vitamins and minerals that will power you through the Fall season.

Lastly, chiropractic treatment is a great way to rid yourself of those cold season aches and pains you’ve been living with. Our treatments provide drug-free pain relief that helps our patients avoid prescription drug usage. We’re all about keeping our patients healthy and well full time over at Espinosa Family Chiropractic.

Can Basketball Players Benefit from Chiro?

The short answer is a resounding YES.

Chiropractic treatment has been shown to benefit athletes in numerous ways. One simple chiropractic treatment can help basketball players get a better night of sleep, even after a hard day of training. Chiropractic adjustments also provide drug-free pain relief, which will help you stay in the game, even with those aches and pains that come about from jumping up and down on the hardwood court.

Basketball is just pain hard on the joints, and chiropractic treatment is the perfect antidote. The sooner you start exploring the benefits of chiropractic treatment, the more your body will thank you for your choice. Contact Espinosa Family Chiropractic today to schedule your consultation. We have a long track record of keeping athletes healthy, happy, and at the top of their game.

Chiro for Twenty-Somethings

When people think of the chiropractor, they often think of an elderly patient having back trouble, or a patient seeing a chiropractor in the aftermath of an automobile accident, however, chiropractic treatment stands to benefit patients of all ages and from all walks of life — even those who perceive themselves to be 100% healthy.

One simple chiropractic adjustment stands to provide a plethora of benefits to our patients in their 20s especially.

Below, Espinosa Family Chiropractic discusses a few health benefits those in their 20s can glean from chiropractic treatment.

The Perfect Antidote for the Daily Grind

If you’re out there hustling, it’s likely that you’re either driving to and from work, not to mention sitting in front of a computer during your job, or, at the very least sitting in front of the TV after a hard day’s work to decompress. All of these activities put a ton of strain on your spine. A good chiropractor can help alleviate the pain and tension that you experience from your daily routine, setting you up for success on a daily basis.

Get a Better Night of Sleep

Just like after a good yoga class, a great session with your local chiropractor will have you feeling peaceful, serene, and as though you could sleep like a baby. Re-adjusting the spine helps the body function properly, which ensures that your energy is spent in the right places. Chiropractic treatment has even been shown to benefit those who suffer from insomnia.

Active Recovery

If you’re an active twenty-something, it’s time to devise an active recovery plan for your off days, which should include yoga or some type of stretching, not to mention chiropractic treatment, which will help ease tension from activity, increase flexibility, and improve range of motion as well. Contact Espinosa Family Chiropractic today to schedule your consultation if you think you’re a twenty-something who could benefit from one simple adjustment.

Mental Health in October

To say it’s been a stressful and impactful year is an understatement. Right now we’re dealing with a global pandemic that doesn’t seem to be easing up. Some of us are separated from loved ones and have been for the better part of the year by now.

Pair this with the fact that we’re in an election year and this election will be happening in just a few short weeks — people on both sides of the coin are extremely on edge during these times. 

That’s why it’s extremely important to make sure that you take care of yourself, especially your mental landscape during this time.


We tend to think of exercise as only benefitting our bodies, but when we don’t exercise, this means that we have built-up energy that we’re not using, which means it will get used in other ways or show up in other ways. Anxiety will often be the culprit here. When you have extra energy to burn, a lot of times you’ll spend it thinking about all of your life’s worries at night instead of sleeping soundly after a day of hard work and hard exercise.


Meditation has been shown to provide an immense amount of benefits to those who choose to practice. Meditation has been shown to reduce anxiety, boost mood, not to mention increase mental focus. When you sit down to meditate, try your best to let your restless thoughts settle. Try your best to think of nothing for 10-20 minutes. When you catch yourself thinking, simply become aware of it, and make yourself stop. Do that over and over again until your time allotment is up. As you build your meditation practice you’ll catch yourself thinking less and less as you go along.

Chiropractic Treatment

Chiropractic treatment has been shown to help promote a better night of sleep, boost mood, reduce anxiety, not to mention ease tension in the back, neck, joints, and other areas of the body. Contact Espinosa Family Chiropractic today to schedule your consultation during the month of October in order to double-down on your mental wellness protocol.
