Chiropractic Care can be Your Tool to New Year’s Resolution Success

Many New Year's resolutions focus on health-related outcomes including exercise and weight loss. The personal discipline required to participate in these activities is itself a substantial reward. Regular chiropractic care assists greatly in helping achieve the intended outcomes of these specific lifestyle upgrades.

A healthy nerve system is needed to obtain maximum benefit from your positive lifestyle changes. That is, as you begin to consume enhanced nutrition, and as you begin to progressively challenge your muscles, ligaments, and joints in cardiovascular and strength training exercises, all your body's systems must be able to communicate effectively so that the right things may happen. Regular chiropractic care, by detecting, analyzing, and correcting sources of nerve interference, helps ensure that your nerve system is functioning at peak capacity. In this way, regular chiropractic care helps you reach your New Year's resolutions of greater and longer lasting health and well-being.

New Year's resolutions, beloved by some and loathed by others, are an integral part of the New Year's tradition. We wish our relationship to the new year to be one of joy and anticipation, and we hope that we'll be able to forge some new habits and accomplish some new things that will further the welfare and well-being of families and ourselves.

For most of us, exercise and a healthy diet are at the top of our New Year's resolutions lists.1 We may have made such commitments in the past, only to fall by the wayside of our exercise routines or see the pounds we worked so hard to lose slowly creep back as we became less committed to our nutrition plans. The resignation that lies concealed behind the all-too-thin veneer of lifestyle upgrade optimism is ready to leap forward at the slightest opportunity and slam the brakes on any forward progress we’ve made.

We need to be on the lookout for such internal negativity and put a stop to it before it hampers our mental and physical abilities to fulfill our New Year's resolutions. Memories of the lack of previous success may be at the forefront of our consciousness whenever we think about recommitting to healthier ways. The only way we can set ourselves in motion is to acknowledge those memories and past experiences and then reorient ourselves and focus on what we intend to accomplish in the present.

In order to successfully fulfill our New Year's resolutions, we need a rehabilitation plan to get away from the addictive hold our memories have on us. The center of this plan is an intentional focus on what there is to do today. We help ourselves by setting out goals for today and then committing ourselves to accomplishing those tasks. We gain personal power, day by day, when we complete our daily list. Gradually, step by step and meal by meal, we begin to build new habits of health.

Our exercise and nutritional plans begin to become realities as we accomplish our daily, weekly, and now monthly goals. Soon we begin to have more energy throughout the day and sleep much more restfully at night. We stand taller, our skin appears brighter, and our sense of well-being and self-confidence begins to be noticed by our families, friends, and coworkers. Now we are well on the way to fulfilling our New Year's resolutions and enjoying long-term health and well-being.2,3

Testimonial

I'm a young and fairly active woman. I started having a pain in my hip area and thought it was a pinched nerve or something. This went on about once a month for about four months. The pain was getting stronger every time this would happen. The last time it happened the pain was so bad it put me into tears! I didn't want to go to a doc in the box because I figured they would just prescribe me pain pills and not fix the problem... whatever that would be. My Office Manager suggested that I go to Dr.Klena. She and the staff here at my new job all used him. Idaho Chiropractic got me in first thing in the morning and took good care of me. Come to find out it was from a previous car accident and when I had started playing golf four months earlier I was just irritating that hip and inflamed some tissue in that joint. Dr.Klena made a complete plan for me that included adjustments, ultra sounds, stretching and strengthening on top of a payment plan! I'm fixed and so grateful that they could do it without medicating me.

Thank you Dr.Klena and Staff!
