If you strive for pain-free living there are some basic tips you should follow such as exercising and stretching on a regular basis, eating a healthy diet and maintaining a healthy nervous system.
Can exercising and stretching on a regular basis set you up for pain-free living?
Exercise on a regular basis helps to keep and create more muscle strength and bone density. It’s a great way to burn stress and increase cardiovascular function. Stretching on a regular basis helps to maintain maximum flexibility and helps to avoid injuries.
What role does diet and nutrition have in living a pain-free life?
We want to think of our body like a high-performance vehicle. If we want our body to perform like a Lamborghini, we have to put high quality fuel or food in. I like to keep it simple. If it doesn’t grow on a tree or come from the ground, don’t eat it. Eat a moderate amount of animal protein from different sources, moderate high-quality fats, and minimal starch.
If we focus on maintaining proper posture every day, will that help us live a pain-free life?
Absolutely. Posture is the window to the spine and our spine is the window to health. The two places to focus your energy on posture is sleep and work. You think about, those are the two places where we tend to spend most of our time, so we want to focus all of our energy into creating the ideal posture in those two environments.
How can chiropractic care help people try to live a pain-free life?
Now, I think of chiropractic care as the glue that holds it all together. So, chiropractic care helps to create the best alignment to the spine, which protects the nervous system. We know that the nervous system is the most important system in our body because it literally controls every cell, tissue, and organ. So, if we want to be healthy, we really have to put our energy into creating and maintaining that healthy nervous system.
