Good Eating This Season

This time of the year many of us suffer from the "Winter Bulge". Why do we pack on the weight more so in the winter and how do we stop the cycle? 

During the winter months the days are sorter and colder impelling us to reach for our favorite cup of hot coco or sugary drink. And if you have that, you have to have a cookie too! As the sun sets sooner and we feel colder we naturally want to stay inside, making us less active and more likely to reach for the quickest pick me up to boost our spirits. 

Follow these easy tips to stay healthy this Winter:

1. Eat regular meals

2. Eat in moderation

3. Keep healthy snacks on hand at all times 

4. Get out and stay active (even if it is cold)

6. Drink Drink Drink plenty of water! 

 

Headache Relief

Headaches 
Where do you think you can find relief from your headache pain? 
A.    Eating better
B.    Regular sleep patterns 
C.    Chiropractic care
D.    Physical Therapy 
E.    All of the Above
If you answered E then you are right! Many people know that our sleep and eating patterns have a great effect on the frequency, duration and intensity of headaches and migraines. But did you know that Chiropractic care can help too? 


One of the main causes of headaches is a misalignment of the vertebra in the neck. This causes signals to be sent to the brain, creating pain in other locations such as the shoulders, hands and even causing extreme headache pain. 


Regular chiropractic adjustment can help by relieving the nerve impediments that cause the signals to be sent improperly.


If your headaches return shortly after an adjustment then you may benefit from Physical Therapy. Physical Therapy can help by strengthening the muscles surrounding the spine to help hold the Chiropractic Adjustment. 


If you or a loved one are suffering from headaches or migraines make an appointment at Wellness Professionals were we can meet all of your wellness needs in one convenient location. Serving all of NWA including Fayetteville, Farmington, Springdale and Bentonville. We provide Chiropractic care, Physical therapy, Massage Therapy and Speech and Language therapy all in one convenient location.  

 

 

Fall Weather Safety Measures

Along with Fall time comes beautiful weather and bright colors. It is time to get out and enjoy the great outdoors with family and friends! Fall is the perfect time of year for many outdoor hobbies that may include a lot of strenuous activities. Some hobbies may vary from hiking, to bike riding, or even something as simple as jumping in the leaves with the kids! All of these things are great fun! But with any activity also presents possibility of injury whether it be minor or extreme.

There are many tips for being safe and preventing, or even avoiding any injury that may put a damper on your Fall season! Before being too active, you should always remember to warm up first. This gives the muscles a chance to loosen up a bit to avoid any injury from stretching too quickly. Being aware of your surroundings is very important also! No matter what the activity may include, always be aware of what is going on around you. Accidents that cause injury often happen from the lack of awareness of other things that may be going on.

If you do happen to get injured in the midst of your Fall fun, we offer several different services here at Wellness Professionals! Whether it may be Chiropractic, Physical Therapy, Massage Therapy, or even Speech Therapy, we offer them all! We also do different types of traction and electrical stimulation along with ultrasound. Seeing you in pain is not what we look forward to. Helping you through the pain or discomfort is what we do here at Wellness Professionals.

 

 

Backpack to School

School is back in session in most regions, and that means that kids everywhere are stocked up on school supplies and textbooks to take along with them. These items can be very heavy individually, but when your child carries around multiple heavy items in their backpack it can become very strenuous on their back. Unfortunately, a lot of the time there is no way to get out of carrying these heavy items around with you throughout the day. There is, however, proper loading and carrying methods and techniques that allow for the backpack to be carried more easily, and also reduce the impact on your child's back.

Backpacks should be worn high on the back using both straps in order to reduce the load on your back. This spreads the load more evenly, and allows for your muscles to work more effectively together to hold the weight. The items in the backpack should also be organized in order of weight. The heaviest items should be near the bottom, and closest to the body while the lighter items can be further from your person.

 

Back Pain and Flexibility

Back pain is one of the most common things that we deal with here at Wellness Professionals. Almost everyone experiences moderate to severe back pain at some point in their lives, and sometimes the pain can even become chronic. Although the pain can be severe and effect many if not all aspects of your daily life, it is usually easily treatable with proper knowledge and understanding of the surrounding muscles and joints. We have all heard our whole lives of the importance of flexibility, but very few people work on stretching and flexibility regularly. Poor flexibility is one of the biggest factors that can lead to chronic back pain. Here at Wellness Professionals our team is trained to isolate the muscles lacking in flexibility, and work with them to decrease their negative effects they may be having on your back and overall wellness.

Back pain effects everyone, but it does not have to remain with you. Our team includes chiropractic, physical therapy, and massage therapy professionals that can treat your back pain and increase your overall felxibility in order to improve and maintain not only physical, but also psychological wellbeing.  We offer our services to all who live in Northwest Arkansas including those who live in: Farmington, Fayetteville, Springdale, Elkins, Greenland, Rogers, Goshen, and Westfork. We work our hardest to help you reach all of your wellness goals, and hope to be your last stop on your path to a pain free life.
