The fight between you need to eat healthy and your desire to eat sweets is real.
And when you visit with your friends you at least realize that you are not alone.
During these months when many Americans have spent more time at home than ever before, there are many who are using their extra time to work on their health and fitness. There are many others, however, who simply cannot force themselves to workout when they are unable to visit their local gym.
For you, sometimes healthy wins, and find that you are usually more successful in the morning and at other times during the day when you have healthy meals and snacks already planned. Sometimes you compromise and eat sweet things that you have made more healthy by making them your yourself with carefully selected ingredients.
Your latest favorite healthy treats are avocado brownies, apples with peanut butter and dark chocolate, and homemade granola muffins. But you try to only choose these sweet options occasionally.
The one thing that you use every single day that seriously satisfies your sweet tooth, while at the same time gives you good nutrition, is your shake. No joke. A chocolate peanut butter shake at 3:00 pm is exactly what your body wants, so you have one.
Staying Healthy Always Requires Regular Amounts of Activity and Exercise
In addition to eating the right foods, however, a major stumbling block that some people are facing is getting the right amount of exercise. And while there are many people who simply cannot get themselves motivated to workout from home after years of daily visits to a professional gym, still others are limited by back pain and other conditions. Fortunately, if you are working with an experienced doctor who knows how to use the best chiropractic adjustment tools and physical therapy equipment you may find that you are able to get the exercise that both your body and your mind need.
With the use of the latest functional assessment equipment, computerized range of motion testing equipment, and the most finely calibrated chiropractic adjustment tools, many doctors can help their patients return to a level of activity that can keep them as healthy as possible.
Consider some of these facts and figures about the use of chiropractic adjustment tools, physical therapy treatments, and sometimes a combination of the two to keep patients both looking and feeling their best by allowing them to STAY FIT:
- Statistics show that there are approximately 200,000 physical therapists employed in the U.S. with an additional 60,000 projected to be added to the workforce in coming years. And given the aging of our population, it is important to note that these careers will be in high demand in the future.
- The job outlook for physical therapists is projected to grow by 28% between the years of 2016 and 2026, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That percentage is much faster than the average growth rate of all occupations.
- A growing number of studies indicate that the first point of contact for a patient can have a significant impact on the end results. For instance, 56% of patients who saw a doctor, saw a 30% reduction in low back pain. But 94% of patients who underwent treatment with a chiropractor saw a 30% reduction in low back pain after four weeks.
- Youth sports may be the source of some of the longterm pain that some adults are experiencing. In a time when so many people lived a younger life of focus on one individual sport, there are many people who find themselves dealing with lingering injuries and chronic pain.
- Feet bear the brunt of much of the activities and sports workouts that most people participate in. And given that each foot on the human body is made up of 28 bones, 30 joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments, it should come as no surprise that many people are in need of care for foot problems.
- Inflamation that is chronic affects millions of Americans. Arthritis and joint diseases, one common type of chronic inflammation, affects 350 million people around the world and 43 million people in the U.S.
- Trips to see a chiropractor who uses a chiropractic adjustment tool may be the solution.
