Chiropractic: Focus on Prevention

Posted on Jan 22, 2018


It’s interesting, isn’t it? Many of the reasons people die in the U.S. can be attributed to risky behaviors they do, like smoking and drinking, as well as things they don’t do, like never exercising and never eating healthy. What if people were to modify their behaviors so they wouldn’t so easily get to the point of no return?

Chiropractors typically believe a focus on prevention can truly benefit a community of people. Do you have to eat nothing but sugary snacks and soda pop daily? No. Do you have to spend your free time on the couch watching TV, leading a sedentary lifestyle? No. And do you have to smoke and drink? No. These are all things people do that mess up their physical well-being over time.

Did you know that musculoskeletal conditions such as low back and neck pain are prevalent in American society today? Ask around and you’re likely going to discover most people have bad backs and kinks in their necks. Why is that? Perhaps it stems from sitting at computer desks all day in a stiff position, staring at a screen for eight hours or more. Then, there’s the whole smartphone thing, which has become an addiction for some. At home, most people turn on their TVs at night. It’s really easy to fall into bad habits where you end up neglecting or hurting your body over time.

With that in mind, chiropractors want to help people in the community to feel better, move more, and not be in chronic pain. Prevention matters, to the point where chiropractors place an emphasis on wellness and living a healthier lifestyle. Therefore, when you visit a chiropractor, don’t be surprised if they ask you about your habits, as well as your posture during the day and what kind of foods and drinks you regularly consume. A chiropractor typically looks for what you might be doing “wrong” that could be changed so you’ll feel more “right.” This is a preventative approach to healthcare.

Giving up smoking can do wonders for your lungs. Giving up drinking can do wonders for your liver. Exercising regularly can alleviate depression as well as stretch and tone your muscles. These are all good things. A visit to Lakewoods Chiropractic is a chance to check-in with the doctor about where you’re at in life, right now, and what you can do to prevent future problems if you make some well-advised changes. Please call 651-464-0800 to make an appointment at Lakewoods Chiropractic in Forest Lake, MN.

Great place to heal!! Exceeded my expectations. My only complaint is I didn't come sooner!! After seeing three doctors with a solution of cortisone injections in my back it was time to try something more natural. While I've always understood the importance of chiropractic care I've never fully tried it. Everything they have done here is tailored for me! I started feeling better by the 3rd adjustment! I haven't taken a single pain med! Praise God!! Don't wait to get the care you need!! I wish I hadn't. Five stars and more!! Bonus....I was given all the equipment I need to do my stretches at home along with an in depth nutritional support system! Amazing!
