Chiropractic care is important all year round, but we think it is especially important during the holiday season!
“It’s the busiest time of the year, I don’t have the time to make it in for an appointment!”
We hear that ALL the time! Don’t get us wrong; we know the holidays are stressful… Between holiday parties, last minute holiday shopping, and taking care of sick children, who has the time to do anything extra??
But by taking the time to seek chiropractic care during the holidays you’ll be able to:
- Relieve Stress & Tension
- Travel Pain-Free
- Improve Your Digestion
- Fight Seasonal Affective Disorder & Depression
- Kick Start Your 2018 Resolutions
This time of year people equate getting sick with the colder weather. The truth is that holiday stress decreases your immunity throwing a wrench into your plans with family and friends. We recommend making sleep a priority, exercising regularly, and staying up-to-date with your chiropractic appointments for the following benefits:
1: Relieve Stress & Tension
As we’ve established, the holidays can be stressful! Spending the first holiday without a loved one, finding the money for gifts, crazy weather, or dealing with difficult family members… the list can go on and on. But at the end of the day, the holidays are meant to be a cheerful time with family and friends.
Everyone is different, but stress can result in headaches, neck pain, low back pain, stomachaches, and all over body tension. Many people take over the counter medication for these pains – but doing so will only mask the issues.
Chiropractic care is a powerful tool to treat these issues and the negative effects of stress. A chiropractic adjustment can relieve you of discomfort and have you back to your holiday plans in no time!
2: Travel Pain-Free
Unless you’re staying at home for the holidays, odds are you’ll be feeling some type of travel pain come January. Whether you’re flying, driving, or stuck on a pullout sofa – the holiday travel can leave you in some pretty uncomfortable positions.
These positions can put a lot of stress on your spine creating pain and discomfort. Seeking chiropractic care before and after holiday travel will go a long way to help you through this busy season!

3: Improve Your Digestion
During the holiday season, we find it’s harder to eat healthily. We tend to eat more treats, bigger portions, and we eat fewer fruits and vegetables than normal. This equates to an increase in starches and sugars and a decrease in fiber.
If you’ve ever felt bloated, gassy, or experienced heartburn during the holiday season, you are not alone!
But did you know that chiropractic care has a huge impact on your digestion? This is because it affects your nervous system – which controls the nerves, connected to your stomach and intestine! A chiropractic adjustment can ensure the communication between your mind and your digestive organs are running smoothly.
4: Fight Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) & Depression
This time of year, more and more people experience the symptoms of SAD – often referred to as the “winter blues.” Our vitamin D levels drop as the hours of sunlight decrease, and the heightened stress of the holidays make it easy to feel depressed in the winter.
But just like its impact on your digestive organs, a chiropractic adjustment can have the same effect on your brain! A fully functioning nervous system and balanced body can be just the boost you need to fight Seasonal Affective Disorder this winter!
5: Kick Start Your 2018 Resolutions
What are your New Year’s resolutions for 2018?
This time each year, millions of American’s put working out and healthier eating at the very top of their New Year’s resolution list! If you’re looking to start a new workout plan this year, chances are you’ll be putting your body under a great deal of stress.
Visiting a chiropractor before embarking on such a journey is a fantastic idea! Not only will you get a great adjustment to start off the New Year right, but you can also get some trusted advice on what your body can handle.
An undiagnosed back, knee, or foot injury could sideline you early on in your New Year’s resolution journey – which is why we recommend having an evaluation before starting!
There are so many wonderful benefits to be had with chiropractic care during the holidays. So whether you’re looking to relieve holiday stress, calm an upset stomach, get a boost in happiness, or kick-start your goals – a chiropractic appointment should be in your near future!
With that, the entire staff at Chesapeake Family Wellness Center wishes you an incredibly happy and healthy 2018 holiday season!
