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.
