Your End-of-the-Year Chiropractic Check-Up
It’s a good idea to schedule your end of the year appointments if you haven’t already. Many folks deem themselves too busy throughout the year and end up losing out on insurance coverage benefits. Most insurance policies cover chiropractic treatment and in many cases, you won’t incur much of an out-of-pocket fee.
Chiropractic check-ups will ensure your body and brain are functioning at optimum capacity as you head into the new year.
Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to improve brain functionality, increase mobility, provide drug-free pain relief, and more!
Best of all, you can get an adjustment during the course of a lunch hour, if you’re pressed for time.
Contact Holmes Chiropractic today if you’re in need of an end-of-the-year adjustment — it’s a great way to end a productive year!
How to Stay Active Over Thanksgiving Weekend
If you’re interested in ways to stay active while everyone else is vegging out and watching Netflix, read on!
Holmes Chiropractic goes over a few ways to stay active over Thanksgiving weekend that are worth anyone’s consideration and are totally within reach, even with so much time getting devoted to family functions.
Take a Nature Hike
It doesn’t matter if you go solo or you take a family member you’ve been meaning to catch up with, going on a hike will release healthy endorphins and provide you with a way to burn off those extra calories.
Think about your food intake and consume food for fuel during the holidays to stay alert and energized throughout the day. Eating right sets the table for an active lifestyle. Prepare healthy Thanksgiving dishes to get the rest of the family on your healthy new page.

Simple Diet Changes that Make a Huge Difference
When it comes down to it, living our most healthy lives is just a matter of making a few small changes. Although the changes may be simple, that doesn’t mean they’re not difficult to achieve. The measures Holmes Chiropractic discusses below require discipline and commitment in order to achieve and reap the health benefits.
No More Junk
The sooner you can cut out junk food completely, the better. Stay away from fast food places, stay away from candy, and stay away from foods laden with processed carbohydrates. These foods have little to no nutritional value and wreak havoc on your digestive system.
Eat Tons of Veggies
Aim for 2 salads a day. Get your kale and broccoli servings, not to mention eat your spinach. Leafy greens and cruciferous vegetables have tons of nutrients and are easier on your digestive system than processed foods.
Restrict Eating Times
It’s time to rethink when and why we eat. Limit yourself to eating all of your day’s food within an 8-10 hour window to enjoy the benefits that intermittent fasting brings. Stop eating right before bed as it will disrupt your sleep.

The One Life Change You Need to Make
For many of us, there’s that one elusive health change that we need to make as soon as possible that will drastically improve our quality of life. Whether it’s losing that 10-20 extra pounds, quitting smoking (or drinking), or cutting out processed sugar for good, making that choice and sticking with it now will make a huge difference on your health moving forward.
Make the Big Change Instead of Multiple Slight Changes
Instead of making a few slight tweaks on many areas — for instance, eating one less piece of candy per week, running 2 miles per week, or cutting down to half a pack of cigarettes — take the deep plunge in that one major area to boost your health quick. Once you cut out processed sugar completely, you’ll notice a huge health boost — the same is true for actually quitting smoking and going through with achieving your ideal body weight.
The point is don’t keep waiting until tomorrow to make that change you need to make. One more day of the same behavior will make it harder tomorrow to make improvements. Why wait to start living your best life anyway?

Chiropractic for the Professional
If you’re a business professional, one of the first things to get put on the backburner is your own well-being. You’re making moves and decisions for the sake of a team, perhaps a corporation, and, often, your employer wants to get the most out of you, not necessarily keeping in mind what’s best for your health and wellness.
For instance, the way most workspaces are set up, conditions are often cramped, furniture is often hardly ergonomically-designed, and we spend long hours either on our feet or in our seats, which can and will have adverse effects on our back, neck, and joints.
There’s a lot you can do to stay in shape, be well, and stay in the game, which will help you and your organization.
One way to do that is to incorporate chiropractic treatments into your overall health and wellness protocol.
During your first visit, we’ll have you fill out some paperwork, go over your current state of wellness, then handcraft a personalized treatment plan that works for you and comes in under budget.
Chiropractic adjustments offer the following benefits:
- Drug-Free Pain Relief
- Improved Mood / Improved Focus
- Better Sleep
- Improved Immune System & GI System
- Increased Range of Motion
- Excellent Injury Prevention
