Choosing your Lifestyle
Chiropractic is a lifestyle as much as it is a treatment
It is a lifestyle that choosing wellness over suffering and offers you a way of controlling your health, of strengthening your body against the incursions of life rather than letting the external factors of life make the decisions. This is reflected in the fact that regular patients of chiropractic spend less on pharmaceutical drugs and surgery and spend less of their lives in the hospital. It rests around the idea that your body is the most powerful force in keeping itself healthy- sometimes it just needs a helping hand. Supporting a lifestyle that puts your body in control of its own healing is the basis of everything we do at Espinosa Family Chiropractic.
The chiropractic lifestyle helps you get to know your body better
Education and awareness are two of the most important factors when it comes to keeping health in your hands. The more you understand your body and the forces that injure and degrade it, the more you can prevent those forces from taking too great a toll on your health. As chiropractors, we focus on the spine as our gateway to overall health: because it is the conduit of the central nervous system, any dysfunction here will have interminable effects on the rest of the body. That is why we see spinal adjustment as equally important to diet, rest, and exercise.

Massage Versus Muscle Tension
Massage fights muscle tension
As an office of chiropractic, we recognize that muscle tension is taking a heavy toll on the average American. Our lifestyles breed muscle tension- the way we sit, the way we work, even the way we relax seems to set us up for chronically tight muscles. Chiropractors also acknowledge that muscle tension is one of the main causes of subluxation; because a tight muscle actively pulls the body out of alignment, subluxation of spinal joints is a natural outcome. So how do we stop muscle tension in its tracks? With massage, of course.
Sleeping Well in Sacramento
Let’s talk about sleep debt
Sleep is a cornerstone of wellness- as you rest, your body is busy pulling a night shift. Recharging your energy is only the tip of the iceberg; as you sleep, cells repair and rebuild, and your immune system and cardiovascular system prepare for another day of action.
Keeping your Spine Aligned Day by Day
Paint the picture of good bodily alignment
Proper alignment of the body refers to a position in which the head, shoulders, spine, hips, knees and ankles, all the major joints of the body are aligned in such a way that causes minimal pressure to the structures and muscles of the body. But the crux of this whole image is the spine, so most of our efforts at alignment will either bear fruit or fall short based on how we manage the alignment of our spine.
