Lower back pain is one of the more common back conditions that affect our patients at Holmes Chiropractic. Back injuries affect 80% of adults at some point in their lives, so it's important to understand what the most common contributors to lower back pain are, that way you can avoid such habits and behaviors for a better chance at enjoying a longer, healthier, more comfortable life.

We'll leave out the obvious, things like car accidents or work-related injuries, and, rather, go over some of the everyday behaviors that might lead to lower back pain.

1.) The Way You Sit

Chances are, either when you're on your way to work or at work itself, you're likely going to be sitting for extended periods throughout the day. Investing in an ergonomic chair and practicing perfect posture are both essential to navigating the daily grind.

2.) Improper Lifting Technique

Whether it's objects around the house or the way you're lifting at the gym, improper technique in either will land you a back injury at some point in time.

3.) Lack of Spinal Decompression

If you're going through your day without stretching or performing any self-care practices (like yoga, for instance), be aware that you're putting a tremendous amount of pressure on your spine, which will eventually result in chronic pain or even an injury.

Contact Holmes Chiropractic today to schedule your consultation if you have lower back pain, neck pain, leg pain, or joint pain. We provide a variety of treatments aimed at treating the whole patient.

Chiropractic treatment is well-known for getting results that traditional medicine, prescription drugs, and surgical maneuvers might not be able to achieve, and we do that by treating the whole individual, instead of just addressing the symptoms. Many chronic conditions can be treated with chiropractic adjustments, which end up providing the body and brain with a plethora of benefits.

1.) Chronic Whiplash

Chronic whiplash is one condition that chiropractic can address, helping patients manage and reduce pain, increase range of motion, and get back to regular activities as quickly as possible..

2.) Arthritis

Chiropractic has been shown to be beneficial for arthritic patients, helping them manage pain and improve movement and circulation.

3.) Chronic Sports Injuries

Those old sports injuries that start to remind you of themselves later in life can also be treated and alleviated with chiropractic manipulation.

Contact Holmes Chiropractic today to schedule your consultation if you live with any chronic conditions mentioned above. Chiropractic treatment has also been shown to help patients achieve better sleep, improved digestive system, and more. Schedule your consultation with us today!

As we start out the year many of us are hitting the pavement and taking on rigorous exercise routines to either get in or stay in shape. Below, Holmes Chiropractic goes over a few low-impact workouts that will be easier on your spine and joints than other modes of exercising, like running, playing basketball, football, etc.

Swimming

Swimming can be an excellent workout and it's far better for your joints than running. You can mix up cardio and strength training in the pool as well.

Rock Climbing

Rock climbing is great for your back and doesn't have the high impact qualities that many popular sports do -- that is when you practice rock climbing safely and effectively.

 Paddleboarding

Paddleboarding is a great activity for your core muscle group. This activity is generally done in lakes and large bodies of water, so it's likely ideal to engage in this exercise in warmer weather.

Even if your workout includes high-impact exercise, that's okay, too, because Holmes Chiropractic is here to straighten you out if your spine ever gets out of line. We also provide treatments that improve your range of flexibility, help promote healthy sleep, reduce anxiety, optimize your body and brain, and more! Contact us today to schedule your consultation.

At Holmes Chiropractic we're all about educating our patients about what they can do on their own to ensure they achieve peak health and wellness.

This year, it's a good idea to focus on building healthy habits. As Aristotle once said, "Excellence is a habit," and, "We are what we do habitually," (paraphrased, of course).

Below, Holmes Chiropractic goes over a few habits to build this year to ensure you achieve all your goals in 2020.

Exercise Your Body

Run and strength train. Try to learn a new skill that incorporates fitness -- dance or martial arts might be a good place to explore. Pushing your body multiple times each week will also help you reduce anxiety and promote healthy sleep.

Wake Up 1 Hour Earlier

Waking up just one hour earlier will give you time to do something for yourself before you start your day. It's a far better place to begin each day than starting things off by engaging in our responsibilities and submitting to the agendas of others as the day progresses.

Recover, Recover, Recover

Chiropractic treatment is a great way to ensure you recover from your work/life balance. Contact Holmes Chiropractic to learn more about our drug-free health and wellness treatments.

New Year's Eve is a time of year where many people take it upon themselves to head out to nightclubs and bars in order to pay expensive cover charges and stand shoulder to shoulder with massive crowds, which can often present unsafe situations for any of us.

Below, Holmes Chiropractic goes over a few ways to ring in the new year as safely as possible.

Stay at Home

Hold a small soiree at your place this year in order to avoid crowds and paying exorbitant sums of money for overpriced drinks. Invite a few cherished friends. Watch a good movie and eat some fun cuisine.

Limit Your Alcohol Intake

It's a plain and simple fact that our inhibitions are diminished when we drink adult beverages, so we're less likely to make impulsive choices if we steer clear of it. There aren't many worse ways to start out the new year than with a hangover.

Be Productive

Work on a project or task leading into the evening instead of watching the ball drop -- it's a great way to start your new year on a positive note.

Contact Holmes Chiropractic to learn about how our treatments can help you achieve your resolutions this year. We have a long track record of treating the whole patient, instead of just masking the symptoms.

At Holmes Chiropractic we just want to check-in before the end of the year to see how our patients are feeling.

Did you accomplish all of your health and wellness goals for 2019?

Now is the time to take stock of how your year went, identify your strong points and point out your weak areas where you may have underachieved. One good indicator is how you feel. If you've changed your diet, do you find yourself feeling more healthy on a daily basis? Do you find yourself feeling particularly awful now when you eat something low in nutrition?

Taking a look at your new benchmarks can be another good indicator. Are you feeling stronger? If your mile time at an all-time low? If you haven't seen the results you wanted, maybe it's time to look in the mirror for ways you can improve.

Chiropractic treatment is a great way to feel amazing year-round and a great way to set the tone for a healthy and productive 2020. Contact Holmes Chiropractic today to learn more about how our treatments bring out a better you.
