When it comes to health coaching, which is one of the many wellness services Holmes Chiropractic provides in addition to chiropractic adjustments, there are a few key qualities a quality health coach should exhibit. Below we go over some of those qualities to look for when looking for a top-notch chiropractic treatment center.

1.) Good Reviews

You can look your prospective chiropractor and health coach up on Yelp and on social media channels to check out what patients have to say about them. Make sure that most of the reviews are glowing!

2.) Great Qualifications

Make sure your chiropractic care specialist and health coach has the education and training to practice in your state. Check the school(s) they went to and where they got their practical training. Look for chiropractors who have a great reputation with their patients and peers.

3.) Custom-Tailored Health Coaching

Make sure that your health coach custom-tailors their solution to meet your body type, your specific needs, and achieve your goals.

If you have any question about why Holmes Chiropractic is one of the leading health coach providers in our community, contact us today.

Holmes Chiropractic treats many patients who are active in athletics and basketball players are people who can specifically benefit from chiropractic care. In honor of the NBA Finals, we thought we'd go over a few ways that chiropractic care benefits basketball players in particular.

Your Back Takes a Lot of Abuse

Whether you're running or stationary in the paint, crashing for rebounds, basketball puts a lot of pressure on your back, which can be relieved by chiropractic adjustments.

Chiropractic is Good for Your Joints

Your joints also take a lot of abuse in the physical game of basketball, which can be aleviated with chiropractic treatments, which are drug-free solutions and natrual pain relief.

Chiropractic Helps You Avoid Injury

Chiropractic adjustments can help increase your flexibility and range of motion, which will end up helping your ability to stay on the court by helping you avoid injury.

Memorial Day weekend is a perfect opportunity for you to stay active and keep your spine in mind. When it comes down to us, in many ways, we're only as healthy as our spine. Spine misalignment can seriously put our bodies out of whack and mess with the connection and messaging going on between the body and brain.

Below are a few ways to keep your spine healthy this holiday weekend.

Drink Plenty of Water

Staying hydrated will ensure your body and brain run at optimum capacity. Drinking half your body weight in ounces of water daily is great for your spine and your joints as well. Keeps the body lubricated!

Activate Your Core

Try paddleboarding or some calisthenics on the beach to work your body's core muscle group. Building your back is important to staying healthy and well.

Eat Healthy Food

Stay away from hotdogs and burgers if you can. Instead eat clean, whole foods and plenty of fruits and veggies.

Did you know that chiropractic care is an especially useful tool in the athlete's toolbox? It's true! Not many athletes go to chiropractic care when they start thinking about advanced wellness and recovery techniques, but chiropractic has a lot to offer athletes in the realm of joint and muscle relief, cognitive function, and for injury rehabilitation and prevention.

Chiropractic is Good for Recovery

Athletes put a lot of stress on their body, which chiropractic care is the perfect antidote for. Chiropractic adjustments will help your body both recover from and prevent injury as well!

Improved Cognitive Function

The communication lines between your brain and your body might be jammed up due to misalignment. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to improve memory and neuro functionality. 

Stress Relief

Training for athletes as well as games and events can put a person through a lot of stress, which, again, chiropractic care is the perfect antidote for. Chiropractic care will help you achieve more restful sleep, reduce anxiety, and improve sense of overall wellness.

Sleep can be an evasive thing for some, whether it be parents getting used to childcare, or even someone working the graveyard shift. Many folks also use caffeine and other supplements to fuel their day, sometimes taking caffeine late into the afternoon, which can increase anxiety and affect your sleep.

Below are a few ways to take your sleep back on a nightly basis.

1.) Exercise, Exercise, Exercise

Being physically active is a great way to burn that extra energy that might be keeping you up at night. After a day of "getting after it" you'll also have healthy endorphins flowing in the brain, not to mention the fact that you've pushed yourself to physical exertion.

2.) Eat Well

Eating well means lots of veggies, trying to cut or limit processed carbs and sugars, as well as eliminating foods and beverages from your diet that aren't doing anything for you nutritionally, like, say, soda and candy.

3.) Meditate

Meditation and engaging in mindfulness exercises will help reduce your anxiety and help you achieve inner peace, not to mention help you gain more restful sleep.

4.) Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to help with neuro functionality and circulation and may help with anxiety and insomnia. Contact Holmes Chiropractic today to learn more about how chiropractic care can help you.

For those of us who work 40+ hours a week it can be a real challenge to stay healthy, especially since there are so many fast food options and quick grab items from the convenience store that might seem like a good idea (or even be marketed as "healthy") but end up not having much nutritional value.

It's also easy to slack off on our exercise routine, simply chalking up more and more make-up workouts to get done over the weekend. Before we know it it's Sunday and we still haven't gotten a good workout in.

If this sounds like you, then read on for a few tips to boost your wellness the easy way during the week.

1.) Smoothies

Smoothies are a great way to pack a big punch in a small amount of space. Use kale, broccoli, garlic (if you can handle it), ginger, turmeric, and some sort of collagen-rich protein. You can throw a pear or an apple in for flavor, too. There's a little bit of preparation on the front end, but veggie smoothies are a great way to get your daily greens in the quick and easy way.

2.) Office Yoga

If you're at the office sitting at a desk and staring at a computer screen, then switch it up at the top of every hour or so and incorporate a stretch routine. Learn some yoga moves to incorporate. Colleagues might look at you strangely at first, but some might even end up joining in.

3.) Car Meditation

Take 10 minutes each day in the car, whether it's before you start the engine in the morning or right before you walk into the office, for a meditative break. Meditation is a great way to boost mental clarity, increase awareness, and relieve anxiety.

Chiropractic care is also great to incorporate into your wellness routine. Best of all, you can get it done during your lunch hour! Contact Holmes Chiropractic today to schedule your consultation.
