Box
Breathing

Box breathing is a powerful, yet simple, relaxation
technique that aims to return breathing to its normal rhythm. It can be used to
clear the mind, relax the body, and improve focus.

Whether your job creates moments of high stress or anxiety,
your kids or family members challenge your patience, or you randomly have
moments throughout your day that you worry or clench your teeth, box
breathing can help bring you back to a calmer and optimal resting
state.

While you can do this anywhere, it is preferable to sit with
your back supported in a comfortable chair and your feet on the floor.

1. Close your eyes. Breathe in
through your nose while counting to four slowly. Feel the air enter your lungs.
2. Hold your breath inside while
counting slowly to four. Try not to clamp your mouth or nose shut. Simply avoid inhaling or exhaling for 4
seconds.
3. Begin to slowly exhale for 4
seconds.
4. Repeat steps 1 to 3 at least
three times. Ideally, repeat the three steps for 4 minutes, or until calm returns.

If you find the technique challenging to begin with, try
counting to three instead of four. Once used to the technique, you may choose to count to five or six.

If you should have any questions please call 316-321-1667

Is Your Low Back Pain Caused by Slouching Posture?

One of the most common Musculo-skeletal ailments in today’s society is chronic low
back pain. In many cases, it is caused by weak abdominal and core muscles
leading to excessive extension among the joints in the back of the spine.
Conventional treatment is intended to restore movement to any segmental
restrictions and strengthen the surrounding “core” muscles
to correct the global imbalance and remove the excessive straining force on
those involved joints. This, however, is not easily achievable if there are
other forces at play complicating this seemingly simple strategy.

If the upper back is even slightly hunched, the shoulders are rounded or the head has
started to migrate forward, the upper body’s center of gravity begins to shift
forward. To adjust for this, the body will create the extra extension in the
low back as an attempt to maintain a more neutral center of gravity. Not only
will this put the extra joint strain on the spine, it will also create adaptive
tightening of the low back muscles to try and support this position.

If you are experiencing low back pain and tightness that does not seem to improve with
other conventional methods, consider improving your upper back, shoulder and
neck postural imbalances to help get better results.

If you should have any questions please call us 316-321-1667

Tips to Minimize Weight Gain Through the Holidays



It has become tolerated and even expected that people will gain
pounds

and inches through the holidays. Whether it is due to overeating,
a more

sedentary lifestyle or even holiday stress, most people will add
numbers to

the scale during the month of December. Here are a few tips to
keep

those pounds off.



1. Stay Active – Make a special effort to schedule more time or
add

more physical activities to your calendar during the holidays.



2. Stay Hydrated – The humidity decreases in the winter months

requiring you to drink more water to stay hydrated. It also helps
to

drink more water before parties and meals as you will be less
likely

to eat as much if you fill your tummy with water.



3. Get plenty of rest – This year more than ever, rest is
essential to

keeping your body healthy. Depriving your body from sleep has

also been linked to weight gain as we tend to be hungrier and eat

more.



4. Manage your stress – Stress typically creates elevated levels
of

cortisol which leads to increased hunger, elevated cravings, and

poor food choice.



5. Practice Mindful Eating – Try your best to prepare your meals
and

portions and not have foods and snacks sitting out around during

the holidays, making it easy to routinely graze on less-healthy

options. If you are going to have a high calorie meal, keep it to
only

that meal and don’t allow yourself to throw out all of your healthy

eating habits and binge
eat all day or all weekend.

The wonders of Vitamin D and is it a
Vitamin or a Hormone?





A vitamin is an
essential nutrient that our bodies must obtain from food. This is not truly the
case with vitamin D as our bodies can manufacture it and convert
it into a more useful form in the presence
of sunlight.



Here is how vitamin
D plays important roles in various
systems throughout the body:

Musculo-Skeletal - regulates calcium levels which
is necessary for
strong bones and proper muscle function



Immune system - has been
shown to strengthen the immune system
and improve autoimmune diseases



Metabolism - low
levels have been
shown to affect
insulin levels and
has been correlated with obesity



Cardiovascular system - can help prevent blood clots, strengthen heart muscles and
support the linings of blood vessels



Psychological/Emotional - helps regulate
mood and has been shown
to prevent anxiety and depression

White Board Topic of the Week: FHP

Forward Head Posture or Future Headaches Probable Forward Head Posture, also known as text neck or associated with upper cross syndrome has been progressively on the rise. It is affecting more and more of our adults and our kids as people are spending time sitting and desks, slouching on couches and looking down at their cell phones.

Additionally, daily physical activity has dropped significantly over the years which should have helped build and maintain the postural musculature in the upper back necessary to support the upper back and neck.

Symptoms associated with forward head posture include headaches, neck discomfort, increase muscle tension in the neck and shoulders, pain in the mid back, chest pain, and pain radiating down the shoulders and arms.

Research has shown that forward head posture and increased kyphosis causes a decreased cervical range of motion1 (which leads to degenerative arthritis) and that hyper-kyphosis has long been “associated with increased mortality, diminished physical performance, impaired respiratory function, poor postural control and a low quality of life.

We need raise awareness of the seriousness and severity of this condition on children and adults and search for solutions in our by improving mobility, alignment and stability.

If there are any questions please call our office.

Our nervous system is a BIG key to our health & Chiropractic adjustments are a BIG key to keeping it functioning properly
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To keep it simple: your nervous sytem is a highway in which your brain sends and receives information about what is happening in the body and around it This highway is made up of billions of nerve cells which join together to make nerves. If you have a misalignment in your vertebrae, it will alter the nerve flow—which is disrupting the flow of your nervous system and impeding normal brain to body communication
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Chiropractic care works by restoring your nervous system back to normal function. When your nervous sytem has no disruptions-all the cells, tissues, and organs of your body are designed to resist disease and sickness. Your body works as one and is an incredible machine that can heal itself, you just have to give your body the correct tools, not pain medication. Medication masks the problem, chiropractic fixes the cause of the problem (To be clear, we are not saying you do not need the medical field. The medical field is very important and is needed just as much as chiropractic care is needed )

“Don’t know what you got, till it’s gone”

This is not just a song title for a 1980’s hairband rock group Cinderella, it has some real-life applications of musculo-skeletal health as well. Many people work hard to provide for their family and save for retirement but do it at the expense of their own health and well-being. They tolerate aches, pains, stress, healthy eating and always expect they will get around to it when “things slow down”.
We have been around and treated enough people in this situation to realize this rarely happens and the more likely scenario is that the pain or other symptoms will continue to worsen until stops them from doing what they need or want to do. Often times this is past the point of correcting the dysfunction, and it turns into merely slowing down the progression of degeneration and could lead to surgery.
This is a great message to share with your family and friends.

Don’t Let Your Spine Get on Your Nerves
The purpose of chiropractic care is the correction of nerve interference. Nerve interference promotes sickness and disease. It robs our vitality and weakens our immune system. The spinal column consists of 24 small bones called vertebrae. Seven of these are located in the neck. Twelve are found in the mid-back and five are in the lower back. It’s very rare to find someone with the spine that’s perfectly aligned. In most people, the spine curves slightly to the right or left and sometimes, one or more of the vertebrae are twisted or rotated. When the vertebrae are misaligned, the flow of messages from the brain to all the other cells in the body is distorted. This type of nerve interference creates disorganization of bodily processes and dis-ease. This misalignment of the vertebrae can often exist undetected and slowly undermine health.

All For One and One For All
The spine as a whole operates as a functional unit. Each vertebra can affect its neighbor and one portion of the spine may affect or damage other areas of the body. Research has shown that when a segment in the spine is fused, either through degeneration or surgically, spinal segments immediately above and below the fusion are more likely to experience accelerated degeneration as a result of the altered motion.

Many chiropractors and technique educators teach models that evaluate specific relationships between the vertebra such as the Lovett Brother Relationship pictured above. According to this theory, each segment has a counterpart mirror that needs to be evaluated if there is a problem with its related segment.

Either way, HealthSource chiropractors assess and restore movement in all segments, not just the ones you feel pain in. Often times, arthritis and degeneration develop in the absence of pain, so we focus on the restoration of movement. It is very difficult to have arthritis develop if mobility and stability are maintained around a joint.

Helpful Driving Posture Tips

If you spend considerable time behind the wheel, whether for your job, your commute to work, or simply for pleasure, it is important to pay attention to your position in the car and your posture to minimize unnecessary wear and tear. Here are a couple things to consider.
1. Keep your pelvis level and neutral - Try and maintain a level seating. Remove any wallets or items from your back pockets and keep your butt to the back of the seat
2. Seat back up - Keep your seat tilted more in an upright position reduces slouching, prevents the shoulders from rolling forward while reaching for the wheel and reduces forward head posture.
3. Both hands equally on the wheel - Driving with one hand typically allows for leaning to a side. Also keeping your elbows down and grips on the bottom half of the wheel reduces shoulder hiking
4. Raise your Seat - Your seat should be raised if possible, to try and keep the hips level with or above the knees. This helps keep the pelvis in a more neutral position.
5. Adjust your steering wheel - Tilting the steering wheel down and extending it closer to you reduces shoulder rounding and elevation
If you should have any questions please call our office 316-321-1667
