Its springtime and we start to do activites that have been forgotten during the winter months, we often forget that we should start this process slowly a little at a time, instead we get carried away with the spring weather and away we go, full steam ahead….. the result can sometimes be painful, however we do not have to wait for pains or illness to set in to obtain the well being our bodies deserve, a visit to a qualified quiropracter can be at anytime, not just when we feel discomfort, a good quiropracter will correct any bad posture habits we have collected along the way, that we are not even aware of. If you are a sports person and feel very fit, does not mean that during your day to day activities you do not adapt the correct posture, if this is not corrected they can later give problems in the back area, and body, this can apply to anyone regardless of your job or everyday duties.
The aim of the quiropracter is to unblock the nervous system which is responsable for sending the information needed from the brain to our organs, muscles, articulations etc., this is done by adjusting our bad posture and aligning our vertebras to the correct posture.
There are ways we can help ourselves, we can learn to position ourselves in different situations
When standing alot……………Rest one foot of the ground, this will take pressure of our back and prevent any curving of the spine
When sitting alot………………Always straight, don’t let yourself lean forward , don’t cross your legs, you can however cross your feet at the level of your ankles.
Air drafts………………………..Never sit with your back to a radiator or air conditioner
Sleeping…………………………The best way to sleep is on your back, with a pillow under the knees, sleeping face down can cause a curve in the spine,and damage to the neck and shoulders. If you sleep on your side mend the kneees ,if your pillow is to high this will cause damage or discomfort to the neck,shoulders and arms.
When you wake, bend the knees,swing them round to one side to leave the bed and let your hands help you lift up from the bed.
Stairs…………………………….It is important to place the whole foot on the step of the stairs, not just the arch of your foot.
Bending…………………………Bend the knees and don’t let your body lean forward.
This is a discipline that will give you a wellbeing of body and mind, it is necessary to obtain the equilibrium we need of our nervous system and avoid negativity from our everyday habits,over sitting, due to working in an office type job, travelling,bad eating habits and insufficent rest during your sleeping time. It is also important to remember that high heels can create damage,the same as jet lag and everyday stress a regular visit to your quiropracter is very beneficial to your overall wellbeing. There is no use of medication
The human body is not a machine, it is a perfect creation with an incredible capacity of regenerating and self healing. The nervous system is responsable to regulate and control all and each one of its functions.If you interfer in the function of the nervous system you are tampering with the capacity of the body to heal its self. The best communication between the brain and each part of us contributes to the body being able to recuperate and mantain us healthy.
Always seek a professional quiropracter, this will help you inside and out, healthy body healthy mind.
