Top Resolutions for the New Year

New Year’s resolutions are probably something we’ve all pondered over at the beginning of the year, which is why Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope thought it would be a good idea to go over some of the top resolutions that people make at the beginning of the year. If anything on this list inspires you, be our guest!

1.) Fitness

Many folks will be heading into the gym come January 1st. Instead of getting that gym membership (gyms are sure to be crowded this time of year), maybe take a more skilled fitness class to level up. 

2.) Finances

Getting to the next level financially will be on many people’s resolutions list this coming year.

3.) Health

Eating healthy foods and engaging in a more nutritional lifestyle will be a common goal held by many in the coming year.

Taking Stock at the End of the Year

As another holiday season comes and goes, it’s important to take stock of your year around this time to see how you stacked up against your annual goals or objectives. Even if you didn’t create a list of New Year’s resolutions it’s likely you had ideas for ways you could push yourself to achieve more.

Did your objectives have to do with your relationships? Did you vow to dedicate yourself to exercising more and eating more nutritionally? Maybe your goals had more to do with finances and career this year.

Either way, how do you feel about what you accomplished? When we push ourselves through uncomfortable situations, we come out the other side stronger people, having grown from our experiences. If any of that went on this year, you should feel good about things.

However, even if you had an amazing year, it’s likely that you might have slacked in at least one area. Moving forward, maybe it’s a good idea to focus on that area you underachieved in, so you can up your game.

Chiropractic treatment is a great companion when it comes to achieving your goals. A chiropractic adjustment helps increase your range of motion, provides drug-free pain relief, and also helps boost your mind/body balance… in more ways than one. Make chiropractic treatments a part of your wellness protocol heading into the new year, you won’t be sorry!

Top 5 Healthy Gift Choices for the Holiday Season

In the spirit of the holiday season, Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope would like to go over a few healthy gift options to consider this year, instead of choosing the obligatory gift cards that get passed around by so many in lieu of more creative gift ideas.

1.) Fitness Passes

Purchasing a gym membership or a few yoga classes for a friend or a loved one is a great gift idea that will keep on giving.

2.) Massage

Chances are just about anyone who makes it through a stressful holiday season could benefit from a professional-grade massage.

3.) Essential Oils/Diffuser

Essential oils and/or the means to use essential oils are both great gift options that you and your friend can come together about as you both gain interest in using essential oils for health, wellness, and relaxation purposes.

4.) Muscle Roller

A muscle roller is a great idea that will help relieve muscle tension that comes about from rigorous fitness routines. 

5.) Chiropractic Treatment

Chiropractic adjustments make amazing gifts! Contact Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope today to learn about the many health and wellness benefits that just one adjustment can bring to you or a loved one’s life. Have a safe and happy holiday season!

Tips for a Peaceful, Happy Holiday Season

The holidays might represent family gatherings and present situations where we get to be around those who we cherish the most, but it’s also an undeniable fact that the holidays also represent stressful times for many of us.  Getting just the right gift, in some cases driving through heavy traffic across town, and working extra hours to afford the ideal holiday experience can create stress and anxiety for anyone.

Below, Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope goes over a few ways to reduce or avoid stress and anxiety altogether this holiday season, so you can get back to that which is essential: spending time with loved ones.

Focus on Reasonably-Priced Gifts

Put a price limit on everyone you’re purchasing gifts for and try to get everything on sale. Try not to pay retail price on anything this season to save money.

Don’t Be the Hero

Instead of having the festivities at your house and creating a ton of work for yourself, let someone else throw the gathering. Keep your ears open for holiday parties and be an attendee this year.

Practice Self-Care

Even though the holiday season is a time to give and be selfless, we are in better positions to give when we are well and happy. December is an important month to double-down on your self-care routine. If you have any questions about how chiropractic treatment can be the perfect antidote for stress and anxiety, contact Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope to schedule your consultation. And have a happy, stress-free holiday season!

Your Workplace Wellness Routine

Staying on top of your wellness routine doesn’t have to stop at work.

It’s a sad fact of reality that not every workplace is set up with ergonomic furniture, not to mention an area where you can engage in your yoga practice or mid-day stretch routine.

But, that’s okay, because Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope has your back, your neck, and any other area of your body that aches from your daily routine.

Set Up Your Desk for Success

Make sure that your desk is properly situated, with your computer screen at a level and an angle that has your head looking straight forward. Make sure you’re not slouching or staring downward, which will have a negative effect on your neck and back.

Stretch In Between

Try to get up and stretch your body at the top of every hour. Your coworkers might look at you weird, but your body will thank you.

Eat Clean

Pack fresh lunches made with clean, whole food. This will fuel you throughout your day.

Chiropractic treatment has been shown to offset work-related pain and stress in numerous ways. If you have any questions about how to set up your workplace to benefit your health a little more, contact Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope today to schedule your consultation. 

Should I See the Chiropractor Before My Insurance Benefits Roll Over?

If you haven’t fully utilized your health care insurance plan, if you do not use this month to cash in, your deductibles can reset and any visit or consultation allowances will also reset — usually without rolling over.

One good thing about insurance is that many providers will cover chiropractic treatment — so what are you waiting for?

Getting an end-of-the-year chiropractic adjustment can bring you a variety of benefits, including:

  • Drug-Free Pain Relief
  • Increased Flexibility
  • Boost in Brain Functionality
  • Restful Sleep
  • Improved Immune System
  • Improved Digestion
  • Sinus Congestion Relief
  • And More!

During your visit we’ll go over your health history and pinpoint any problem areas, not to mention come up with a customized treatment plan that will meet your unique needs. Contact Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope today to schedule your end-of-the-year chiropractic check-up. We have a long track record of keeping our patients healthy and well all year long!
