Posture and Motion Maintain the Brain

The link between posture and brain function

So many people treat posture indifferently, which is really a shame when you consider that it is actually a make-or-break part of spinal health. One thing to consider is the link between posture and brain function, which is borne out by a growing wealth of clinical findings. Besides increasing pressure on your spine, reducing lung function, and impairing your organs, poor posture can also hamper brain function. Poor posture is linked to issues including: 

  • Self-esteem
  • Focus and attention
  • Rate of speech
  • Stress levels
  • Mental performance
  • Chronic pain
  • Memory response

As chiropractors, we focus on limiting the damage on the physical side of things, which we know will have a knock-on effect on the mental side. Here’s how our approach to posture works:

Chiropractic for Holiday Stress

As the holiday season rapidly approaches, it’s common to stress over things like preparing meals, shopping for gifts, and having the financial stability to provide all of those things for yourself and your loved ones. Although many of us might be practicing social distancing this holiday season, it’s likely we’ll still go through some of the holiday motions. This holiday season might seem especially stressful, lonesome, and depressing.

However, there is a lot you can do for yourself to stay physically and mentally well, and chiropractic is one drug-free option that addresses both departments simultaneously. Your spine and your body/brain are inextricably connected, and one simple chiropractic adjustment can provide drug-free pain relief, provide you with a better night of sleep, reduce anxiety, and brighten your mood — all in one simple visit with your local chiropractic care specialist.

At Espinosa Family Chiropractic we provide our wellness treatments to patients of all ages and from all walks of life. Contact this Sacramento Chiropractic Care Specialist today to schedule your holiday consultation. We hope you stay happy, healthy, and well.

How Chiropractic Boosts the Immune System

Many people know by now the many benefits that chiropractic treatment offers patients who experience injuries, but what about for patients who are feeling what they perceive to be healthy and well?

At the end of the day, our immune system plays a vital role in warding off infectious organisms from entering our bodies. A good immune system will seem invisible — you won’t even know it’s there. But you will know if you get sick.

Chiropractic treatment is a great way to give your immune system a boost. One simple adjustment can help clear the sinuses, motivate quality sleep, and ensure that your internal systems are running at optimum capacity, including your GI system.

Combine chiropractic treatment with a healthy diet. Vitamin C helps boost your immune system as well and so does elderberry extract, red peppers, and a number of other healthy foods. Getting out in the sun is also good for your immune system as well, giving your body crucial Vitamin D.

Chiropractic Treatment for Patients Ages 40+

When we think of chiropractic treatment, many of us think “Car Accident,” or “Lower Back Problems,” and even things like “Workplace Injuries.”

Not many folks out there view chiropractic treatment as it should be viewed, as a drug-free wellness service geared toward patients from all walks of life.

When we get through our 20s and 30s our bodies are likely starting to feel the daily grind we’ve been putting ourselves through over and over again. Gravity starts to set in and our spines might be starting to get misaligned due to poor posture and overuse.

For our 40+ patients chiropractic treatment offers the following benefits:

  • Better Night of Sleep
  • Drug-Free Pain Relief 
  • Improved Flexibility
  • Improved Mobility
  • Improved Cognitive Function
  • GI System Boost
  • Immune System Boost
  • Mood Boost
  • And Much, Much More!

If you’re wondering how to get over any sort of humps that might be holding you back in your life, chiropractic might be the secret you’ve been looking for. Contact Espinosa Family Chiropractic to learn more about how our treatments keep patients of all ages healthy and well. 

November Wellness Check-In

At Espinosa Family Chiropractic we deeply understand how this November might be a stressful month. For one, we have a stressful election on our hands. Second, we’re in a global pandemic. Third, the holiday season is quickly approaching.

If we don’t keep our wits about us and our health and wellness routines in check, anything can happen this month.

First, take the time to meditate and practice mindfulness exercises, which go a long way in quieting even the most restless minds.

Next, exercise until you’re tired, which will help you burn your energy in the right places, instead of tossing and turning in bed at night worrying about all the things you can’t change. Working on your diet is also a great idea — eating clean, whole foods and staying hydrated are two keys to building a healthy mind, body, and life.

Chiropractic treatment is also an amazing avenue this month to double-down on your wellness. Our treatments at Espinosa Family Chiropractic have been shown to improve flexibility, reduce anxiety, promote a better night of sleep, and much, much more. We’re open during this COVID-19 pandemic and taking every measure to keep our facilities clean and safe for our patients and community. Contact us today to schedule your consultation.
