Being productive isn't an inherent thing in a person, meaning it can be developed and enhanced over time. Just because you might not be the most productive person right now doesn't mean you can't make a couple of tweaks that will end up paying off big.

Below, Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope goes over a few ways to boost and enhance your productivity on a daily basis.

The One-Hour Rule

Break your day/tasks up into hours -- and hold yourself accountable for doing work on a said task or even completing a task over the course of an hour. You can even further subdivide the hours. Like, say, 20 minutes of an hour you've devoted to learning to play the guitar, while the remaining 40 minutes of the hour you spend reading a challenging book.

Stop Taking the Easy Way Out

It's an unfortunate quality in many of us that we prefer to take the paths of least resistance in our lives when engaging in a challenge or struggle yields incredible benefits and rewards. Choosing more challenging tasks and goals to complete makes completing them even more rewarding.

Be Good to Yourself and Others

Being good to yourself might seem like a foregone conclusion because many of us live fairly self-centered lives. So why wouldn't we be taking care of ourselves first? But, the reality is the opposite. Many of us engage in behaviors and activities that are actually harmful to us. When we start doing esteemable things and building self-esteem, we'll be less likely to engage in behaviors and activities that hurt us. From there, we'll be able to be better to others, too.

Do Wellness

Take a yoga class, meditate, and schedule an appointment with your local chiropractor and acupuncture specialist in Brooklyn, NY. Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope provides services and treatments that unlock a better you.

Chiropractic care is a viable treatment for a number of conditions that occur due to spine misalignment. Treatment also includes evaluation of leg lengths discrepancies, the application of approved heel lifts, and orthotics implementation in order to help relieve Lower Back Pain as well as enhance athletic performance.

More on Heel Lifts

Heel lifts (which are commonly referred to as shoe inserts) are often used as a form of therapy for leg-length differences which can lead to knee, hip, joint, and back pain. Heel lifts attempt to reduce stress that gets put on the Achilles' tendon during the healing process in addition to other rehabilitation purposes.


Orthotics, right in line with heel lifts,  are custom-made heel inserts which are designed to reduce knee, hip, joint, and back pain.

Heel lifts and orthotics can also be used by athletes to improve foot support, bolster speed, and prevent future injury.

If you'dl like to learn more about inserts, orthotics, and how you can treat low back pain, knee pain, hip pain, and joint pain, contact Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope today to schedule your consultation. We help athletes, family members, and anybody else in need of all-natural, drug-free pain relief.

Acupuncture offers many distinct benefits for a variety of patients with a variety of physical and spiritual ailments. We'll focus on the physical today, as acupuncture provides drug-free pain relief to patients who choose acupuncture as a treatment.

Acupuncture: Now Being Used in the US and Many Other Western Countries

Acupuncture is now being used in the US and other Western countries to help treat conditions that arise from injury as well as everyday wear and tear, conditions like low back pain, nerve pain (like shingles), headaches, arthritis, inflammation, fibromyalgia, even menopause pains, and menstrual cramps.

Acupuncture Activates the Body's Natural Pain-Killers

Acupuncture is believed by many to be effective in pain relief through releasing the body's natural endorphins, the body's own pain-killing chemicals which are interconnected with the part of the brain that manages serotonin, which is a chemical in your brain involved with mood.

Try Acupuncture at Zero Risk

Acupuncture is virtually risk-free, too. The advent of more pragmatic, single-use, sealed needle packages has all but eliminated risks of getting blood-borne infections HIV or hepatitis B. 

If you have any questions about how acupuncture can help you with everyday pain and injury, contact Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope today to schedule your consultation.

Did you know that acupuncture offers distinct benefits to women going through menopause? Common symptoms that women experience during menopause include hot flashes, pain and discomfort, sleep issues, mood swings, and more. 

Acupuncture is actually showing itself to be a viable treatment for patients who do not wish to undergo hormone therapy. 

One Danish study team that was spearheaded by KammaSundgaardLund (from the department of public health over at the University of Copenhagen) noted that patients who utilized acupuncture showed improvement when it came to hot flashes, not to mention reduction of overall night sweats, sleep dysfunction, emotional imbalance, not to mention skin and hair problems. 

80% of the women who explored acupuncture during this study expressed that they felt acupuncture had been effective in reducing their menopause symptoms.

We are also finding that acupuncture is better for moderate to severe cases of menopause symptoms, which means that the harder a patient goes through menopause, the more acupuncture kicks into gear!

If you have any questions about how acupuncture can help relieve or do away with your menopause symptoms altogether, contact Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope today to schedule your consultation. We have a long track record of helping patients from all walks of life.

You might have heard myths and rumors about what to do if you're trying to induce labor. Going on a gnarly hike might be one you've heard. Some doctors even suggest that having intercourse can induce labor. However, acupuncture remains a treatment that even medical professionals are starting to consider as a viable assistant to a smooth-going childbirth process.

The Facts Are Not Quite In

Medical professionals generally agree that there simply is not enough evidence to support the viability of acupuncture when it comes to inducing labor, however, studies have suggested a causal link. One University of North Carolina study found that women who received acupuncture were more likely to go through labor without medical or surgical intervention. 70% of women who received acupuncture went into labor on their own while only 50% of those who received standard care went into labor on their own.

Acupuncture Stimulates the Body

If you receive acupuncture while pregnant, there's a good chance certain areas of the body will be avoided due to their stimulating effects. During labor induction, these sensitive areas are now incorporated, which can inspire the body to go into labor sooner.

Acupuncture is Win-Win

Even if your acupuncture session doesn't quite send you into labor that night or the following day, you'll achieve a more restful night of sleep as a result and be more comfortable and relaxed during this key stage of motherhood.

Contact Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope if you'd like to know more about how chiropractic treatments and acupuncture can help you during pregnancy.

Whether you get your screen time in with your smartphone, tablet, TV, laptop, or personal computer (or, more likely, some combination of all of these things), chances are you're putting strain on your body just as much as your eyes.

We generally hold our phones low in our hands and crane our neck downwards to read texts and articles, which puts a tremendous amount of strain on your neck and your back.

Sitting in front of the computer for long periods of time, even if you're sitting with perfect posture will also put strain on your neck and your spine, making it compress, much like a spring experiencing pressure.

Chiropractic adjustments are a great way to relieve excessive hours:

  • Looking at our cellphones
  • Staring at the computer
  • Sitting in awkward positions 
  • Hauling around backpacks
  • And more!

Chiropractic adjustments also help relieve pain and tension due to lack of upper body exercise and core engagement. 

If you'd like to learn more about how exactly chiropractic adjustments can help set your back, neck, and spine up for success, contact Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture of Park Slope. Chiropractic re-alignment might just be the drug-free, all-natural solution to a variety of your problems and ailments.
