Labor Day Wellness Tips

For some of us, Labor Day weekend is synonymous with taking a load off, eating lots of the sorts of foods we probably shouldn’t, and possibly drinking a few too many cold ones.

However, Labor Day is a great opportunity to engage in leisure while also staying productive, while… gasp… even being good to your body. Read on for a few tips to stay healthy and well over the extended holiday weekend from Scorca Chiropractic Center.

Stay Hydrated

Instead of drinking a bunch of beers, drink some nice, ph-balanced water and stay hydrated. If you’re out in the sun, you can seriously dehydrate yourself without the proper amount of water intake.

Do Something Physical

Instead of sitting on a boat, get inside the water and go for a swim. Do some nature hiking or get out in the yard and do some yard work or gardening you’ve been meaning to. It will help you feel accomplished and by the day’s end you’ll feel at peace and relaxed. Best of all, no hangover!

Eat Clean

Eating clean, whole foods instead of all the processed garbage that gets passed around over the holiday weekend will help fuel your activities and never give you the food hangover that most Labor Day fare will leave you with.

If you experience any back, neck, or leg pain after your Labor Weekend activities, contact Scorca Chiropractic Center today to learn more about how chiropractic adjustments can help.

3 Easy Nutrition Hacks

Eating a balanced, healthy diet is more important in staying healthy than people give it credit for. More so, when you eat the Standard American Diet (“SAD”), not only is your body constantly bogged down with digesting mostly bad foods, but, in addition, your brain is lacking the nutrition it needs to think properly.

Below are a few simple ways to boost your nutrition.

1.) Eat More Veggies

No matter how many vegetables you eat, you could probably benefit from eating more. Have vegetables be the lion’s share of every meal you eat, if you can.

2.) Eat For Fuel

Stop eating for mouth pleasure and think about what you’re eating and how it will end up benefitting your body. Eat walnuts and avocados for healthy brain fuel, for instance. Stop eating refined sugars and empty carbs.

3.) Limit Your Intake

If the choice is eating horrible food or not eating, just don’t eat. Try to extend your time after waking to eat breakfast. Stop eating past 8pm if you can. If you can limit your food intake to an 8-hour window each day, you’ll start to achieve the health benefits associated with intermittent fasting.

How to Boost Your Focus

Multitasking is being exposed as being overrated, which has a little something to do with the fact that multitasking tends to entail doing multiple things at once, which means you’re not ever really, truly focused on seeing a single task through.

At Scorca Chiropractic we provide eductational materials to our patients and readershiop that will help them improve their health, wellness, and productivity. Read on for a few ways to increase your focus.

Eat Good Food

Instead of eating processed foods packed with sugar and refined carbohydrates, eat food that your body can digest more easily, which will help you spend your energy on problem-solving instead of digestion. Clean, whole foods — veggies and clean protein, for instance — is your best bet.

Hydrate Properly

Drink half your body weight in ounces of water. Dehydration can cause moodiness, lack of clarity, sleepiness, headaches, and more — all of which will affect your focus.

Chiropractic care

Those who experience hip pain, whether they be patients more advanced in age or patients that are generally younger. You don’t have to be a senior to experience hip pain, either. Those who do experience hip pain should schedule a consultation with Scorca Chiropractic Clinic immediately, because chiropractic care offers the drug-free pain relief many patients prefer over utilizing painkillers.

Common Causes of Hip Pain

Hip pain can come about due to joint dysfunction, osteoarthritis, lower back problems, hip bursitis, and more.

Spine misalignement can also be the source of your hip pain, which chiropractic adjustments will help treat. A chiropractor’s primary goal is to relieve pain and restore patients to complete mobility again.

How Scorca Chiropractic Can Help

We utilize low-force, gentle chiropractic care at Scorca Chiropractic, which is best for patients uncomfortable with sudden, jerky movements or patients who have other conditions that make other more forceful methods (like HVLA thrust) unfeasible. Spinal mobilization techniques can also be utilized and are also common types of low-force, gentle chiropractic care.
