Now that the holidays are over, it’s time to buckle down, get into gear, and make 2019 the best year yet!

If you have been following along with my Instagram, you know I have been sharing my top 5 health tips for resolution success in 2019. I am going to continue on that same note, and share with you my top 5 reasons to get adjusted in the new year, because it all goes hand in hand! Although there are countless reasons why visiting a chiropractor is excellent for your health, I am going to tell you a little more about my favorite ones.
Improve Your Sleep: Let’s face it, making the most of your day is difficult when you are functioning on a poor night’s sleep. Our bodies heal and recover while we are sleeping, so getting adequate rest is vital to success. Getting adjusted regularly can help decrease aches and pains that keep you awake at night. It will also regulate the balance between the divisions of the nervous system, and aid in hormone regulation. All of these are a recipe for some solid Z’s!
Reduce Your Stress: The nervous system has different divisions, and they are meant to work harmoniously together so that we function optimally. However, due to factors like vertebral misalignments, sickness, injury, etc., these systems can be up or down regulated. These imbalances can lead to “system overload,” resulting in stress and fatigue! A chiropractic adjustment allows the nervous system to return to its “factory settings,” so you can function at your best!
Reduce Sick Days: Chiropractic adjustments have been proven to boost immune system function, so you can say goodbye to pesky colds and illnesses that keep you side lined throughout the year. This natural immune system boost will also decrease your intake of antibiotics and pain medications, both which have numerous unfavorable side effects.
Improve Athletic Performance: Correct alignment of the spine and extremities is crucial for proper biomechanics and movement patterns during athletic activities. Misalignments can lead to muscular imbalances and abnormal tension on tendons and ligaments, both which ultimately lead to injury and pain.
Improve Digestion: When most people think about visiting the chiropractor, digestive problems and stomach issues probably aren’t the first things that come to mind. However, chiropractic care is fantastic for regular GI function. The nerves that innervate the organs of the digestive tract arise mostly from the lumbar spine, and misalignments in this area can interfere with digestion and function. A simple chiropractic adjustment can restore regular digestion, and improve symptoms of indigestion.
So there you have it! My top 5 reasons to get adjusted in the new year couldn’t be more thorough. If you’re looking to improve your overall health in 2019, contact me to schedule an appointment and kick your body into gear!
