What does it take to be healthier? Health is a relative term. It means that your body is operating at a high normal range in all the different systems including circulation, breathing, digestion, and more. It doesn’t mean you have to look like a super model. Anything you can do to help your body achieve more of an ideal state is a step towards a healthier you. If you’re feeling tired, achy, out of shape, or just generally unwell, taking small steps to improve your health every day might make all the difference. Strength and flexibility There are approximately 642 skeletal muscles in the body. This means that your strength and flexibility play an important role in your health. Your muscles not only help you move, but they support your circulatory and breathing systems. A stronger and more flexible you means a healthier you. Relieving joint or muscle pain through guided exercise can get you out of pain so you can improve your range of motion. If chronic pain affects you, schedule a consultation with our team to see if any of our services might work for you. Make Healthier Food Choices In today’s world, eating well can be hard. Food labels are filled with words that are hard to pronounce, fast food restaurants are on every corner, and busy schedules don’t always lead to the best snacking habits. Take time this year to educate yourself on proper nutrition. Learn how to spot the dangerous things hiding in your food, like hormones, antibiotics, chemicals, artificial flavors, and additives. These things can lead to weight gain, decreased energy levels, and a weakened immune system, among other problems. What you eat fuels your body – make sure you’re fueling it well. Aches, pains, and injuries All of these contribute to an unhealthier you. Pain increases inflammation in the body and increases stress. This affects your endocrine system, which regulates the hormones in your body and controls almost everything. Most muscle and joint pains can easily be treated by our specialized physical therapists. Our experts have the right knowledge and the time to listen, evaluate and guide you towards a pain-free, healthier lifestyle.
