Chiropractic Advice for Autumn

By Brandi Swieter 

The autumn season is perfect for pretty colors, pumpkin spice lattes, and fall carnivals. What it isn’t always good for is health. People start to experience a decline in health when the autumn air hits. The weather changes to cold, windy, and rainy, and the summer sunshine goes away. With slick terrain, more colds than usual, and other worries, chiropractors offer advice for a healthier autumn than usual.

Warm Up Before Yard Work

One of the biggest concerns for homeowners throughout the fall season is the buildup of leaves on the lawn. The leaves start falling and debris piles up quickly in the yard. Before raking, anyone responsible for the task should be sure to warm up their bodies so they are adequately prepared. Failing to do so can lead to injury and muscle overuse.

Wear Comfortable Shoes

Whether a person is outdoors tackling chores, walking through the park, or attending a fall event, a sturdy pair of shoes that feel comfortable on the feet are best to wear. Non-slip shoes are ideal because of the wet grass and leaves that are common during the fall months.

Keep Drinking Water

Many people tend to drink water in excess over the summer months because it’s so hot outside. Once fall hits, some stop drinking as much. Everyone needs to keep drinking water into the autumn and throughout the rest of the year. It not only helps to keep the joints flexible, which can prevent injury, but it works to improve health and keep sickness at bay.

Visit the Chiropractor Regularly

The chiropractor is one of the best people to see during the autumn weather. The doctor can perform an assessment and offer an adjustment that will remove restrictions in the spine and improve the nervous system by freeing up the body's communication pathway. All of this tends to alleviate pain and tension and reduce symptoms of illness in other parts of the body -- not just the back. Regular visits during the fall and winter months should be on everyone’s to-do list if they want to remain healthy.

Maintain health this autumn by following advice from a chiropractor. Taking these things into consideration will help to improve health conditions and keep sickness at bay as much as possible.

Chiropractic and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) affects more than 3 million people annually and occurs when there is compression of the median nerve where the nerve runs through the carpal bones of the wrist. The result is numbness, tingling and/or weakness in the hand. A review of CTS studies that include joint mobilization indicates, according to researchers, "…joint mobilization was associated with positive clinical effects for persons with CTS." Joint mobilization of the wrist is nothing more than introducing safe, controlled force to the carpal bones of the wrist in order to reduce pressure to the median nerve, break adhesions and improve blood flow. Doctors of chiropractic are trained and fully skilled in the art of joint mobilization, which is commonly called "adjustments." If you are suffering from CTS, or similar soft tissue ailment, we encourage you to consider chiropractic care today.

Meditation and Exercise May Reduce Cold Symptoms

A small study conducted by the University of Wisconsin-Madison indicates that meditation and exercise significantly reduced the number of days people missed work due to colds or flu. The results need to be confirmed, but could add another tool to the prevention options available for the respiratory illnesses. Currently there is no vaccine for the common cold, and flu vaccines are only effective 60-70% of the time. The only other preventative measures available for the illnesses are hand washing and to avoid contact with infected persons. While the common cold and most strains of the flu are considered mild by doctors, the estimated costs of them to society run into billions of dollars annually. Working from a thesis that exercise and meditation could prevent illness, Dr. Bruce Barrett and his colleagues randomly assigned 149 patients into three groups; one group participated in an eight week exercise training, one group participated in an eight week meditation training and the third participated as a control and received no special instructions. After the training periods were completed, the researchers tracked illness incidents in the groups through cold and flu season. Of the 50 people in the control group, 40 got sick as opposed to 27 in the meditation group and 26 in the exercise group. Furthermore, the exercise and meditation groups reported feeling sick for an average of only five days, while the control group felt ill for nine. The exercise and meditation groups also missed less work. The researchers speculate that exercise helped strengthen the immune systems of test subjects, while meditation left subjects better prepared to cope with the effects of illness. Dr. Barrett stated however, that the findings were preliminary and needed more study.

Beat Insomnia With More Exercise

For the nearly half of Americans who experience occasional insomnia, and the 22 percent who suffer from the condition nightly, a new survey by the non-profit National Sleep Foundation suggests the key to restful sleep is vigorous exercise. The survey of 1,000 people, conducted by phone and over the internet, indicates that people who exercise regularly have less problems getting to sleep and enjoy a better quality of sleep than those who do not. More than 75 percent of the respondents who reported themselves as working out regularly reported sleeping well, as compared to just over half of the people who reported not exercising at all. Interestingly, both groups reported getting the same amount of sleep; an average of just under seven hours a night during the work week. However, respondents who were physically active reported falling asleep more quickly, experiencing less sleeping problems and needing less sleep to function during the day. The sedentary people reported problems falling asleep at night, staying asleep, keeping awake during the day, taking more naps and exhibiting more symptoms of sleep apnea, a condition that causes breathing problems while sleeping. The experts concluded that even ten minutes of exercise a day could have a significant impact on the duration and quality of sleep.
