Chiropractic treatment offers a variety of health and wellness benefits beyond your neck, back, and spine. Below, Holmes Chiropractic goes over a few lesser-known benefits that chiropractic treatment offers patients.

1.) Improves GI System Functionality

The way your body communicates is deeply linked to your spine, and spine misalignment can certainly disrupt the way your digestive system works. Chiropractic treatments have been shown to improve GI system functionality in patients.

2.) Better and More Consistent Sleep

Chiropractic adjustments optimize the body and provide drug-free pain relief, which helps patients achieve more restful sleep.

3.) Improved Respiratory/Sinus System

Chiropractic treatment helps clear up the passageways of your body, like your respiratory system and your sinuses, which can get obstructed due to spine misalignment. One visit with the chiropractor can often clear you up significantly.

Chiropractic treatment provides drug-free pain relief, is beneficial to your joints, and can be beneficial for those who live with arthritis, headaches, inflammation, sciatica, and much, much more. Contact Holmes Chiropractic to schedule your consultation and learn what our treatments can do for you.

As a way to check in with yourself this first quarter of the year, it's a good idea to give yourself an assessment, checking out areas where you are currently killing it, but especially looking at areas that you can improve.

Maybe you're running those miles every week like you set out to at the beginning of the year, but perhaps you've been slacking when it comes to yoga and meditation. That's okay! That's why it's crucial to do a self-evaluation and make a plan for Q2 of 2020.

Chiropractic treatment is a great way to give your body and brain the routine maintenance it needs to get you past the finish line this year when it comes to your New Year's resolutions. 

First, ask yourself how you're feeling? If you've been eating clean, whole foods, hydrating, and getting plenty of restful sleep, you should be feeling pretty great, right? If you've been underachieving in any one of those areas, you might be feeling less than ideal. Make the little changes and the big changes that will have you feeling healthy and well as you pursue your goals this year.

Contact Holmes Chiropractic to learn about how our treatments get the best out of our patients year-round.

Holmes Chiropractic provides treatments that help our patients live more comfortably and live healthier lives, and a part of what we do is educate our diverse patient base and readership about what they can do to reduce overall wear and tear that our lives dole out to us on the daily. There is stress and tension occurring in your body, which we can help with, but there's also stress and tension going on in your mind. We can help with that, too!

Chiropractic treatments can actually help improve mood, not to mention reduce anxiety and promote a more restful night of sleep.

Beyond our treatments, there's a lot you can do at home, too. Meditation and yoga both go hand-in-hand when it comes to effective stress relief protocols. Exercising your body to exertion at least 3-4 times per week also helps you manage stress and anxiety. You'll come out the other side of all of these activities and treatments feeling less stressed, looser, lighter, and with a little bit more perspective.

Our health is all we have folks. The other stuff is just secondary. Contact Holmes Chiropractic today to learn more about how our treatments help promote a healthy body and mind.

Neck pain can be either acute or chronic and can come about due to a variety of reasons.

Sometimes neck pain can occur as the result of an accident, maybe a fender bender, or even a work-related injury. Neck pain can also come about due to having poor posture, not to mention staring at a screen (whether that be on a computer or on a smartphone) for long periods of time with our heads tilted at uncomfortable angles.

We also don't normally exercise our necks properly, most of us, so it's important to have a wellness protocol designed with your neck in mind.

First, it's a good idea to start exercising your neck, then, at the end of your day, make sure to stretch your neck out. If you don't have any equipment to get it done, simply apply resistance with your own hands/strength, then make forward and backward motions, then side to side motions, getting a 360-degree workout.

Stretch your neck using the same motions. Make small circles with your nose and eventually make the circles bigger and bigger, which will help release tension in your neck.

Another great way to relieve neck pain and neck tension is to visit the chiropractor. Contact Holmes Chiropractic today to schedule your consultation and learn more about the drug-gree pain relief benefits of our treatments.

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!
