Spinal Health and Wellness Tips

Taking proper care of your spine is vitally important for maintaining your happiness and health. In fact, the spine supports your entire body as you move throughout each day. Our chiropractor at Monroe Chiropractic and Alternative Medicine Center can provide you with high-quality treatment for various conditions and problems. Here are some helpful tips for a healthier spine and a few benefits of chiropractic adjustment.


Keep Your Body Active

Staying in one position for too long can wreak havoc on your spine. Instead, staying active improves spinal health. For instance, if you sit all day at a desk, you can get up and walk around or do stretches during your breaks. Additionally, remind yourself to take regular breaks by setting an alarm.

Avoid Inflammatory Foods

Refined sugar, red meats, and many dairy products can cause inflammation. Therefore, it's best to avoid these. On the other hand, anti-inflammatory foods can reduce weight gain and are naturally lower in calories. Several anti-inflammatory foods include leafy green vegetables, tomatoes, avocados, olives, fruits, nuts, garlic, ginger, and others. Adding these to your diet promotes a healthy gut and can ease back pain.

Practice Yoga

Yoga stretches and strengthens the body's muscles. If you take a class, ask the yoga instructor about which poses to do to keep your spine healthy and safe. There are plenty of basic yoga poses that are easy to learn and can be done regularly. You can even take free classes online or enroll in a class in your community. Being in a class can boost your motivation to commit to better health and can be fun and rewarding to spend time with like-minded people.

Take Care of Your Back

You can control and manage spine pain by strengthening and stretching your back. Exercises such as swimming, walking, and safety squats contribute to a healthier back. However, some exercises might hurt your back, including lifting weights, toe touches, sit-ups, and running, among others. If you'd like more information on how to care for your back and spine, search for a chiropractor near me.

How Chiropractic Care Can Benefit You

Chiropractic adjustment enhances spinal motion and increases physical function in the human body. When your spine is unhealthy, you can experience many problems you may not be aware of. Here are just a few ways chiropractic adjustment can be beneficial:

  • Boost mood
  • Decrease migraines and headaches
  • Enhance reproductive health
  • Improve diabetic health
  • Increase energy

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

Highly recommended Dr. Strohm! First of all the staff there is amazing and friendly and I always feel welcome. I’ve been to many chiropractors in my life and Dr. Strohm is the best! He is highly knowledgeable, professional and caring. I’ve been seeing him for chronic headaches/migraines which have been majorly reduced since I started seeing him. What a blessing!
