Holiday Cheer

In early winter, whether we're celebrating Hanukkah or Christmas, both or nothing at all, families and friends gather to share food and drink and give thanks for a year successfully completed. We send up a rousing holiday cheer and share delicious holiday cheer in celebration of our accomplishments and to honor our cherished relationships. It's also useful to take a few moments to ponder and examine the many factors contributing to our ability to navigate the twists, turns, and surprises that daily life has to offer. Foremost among these factors is ongoing good health throughout the year.

As we proceed with our self-inquiry, we begin to understand that work is required to maintain our personal optimum levels of good health. Such work includes engaging in various health-promoting lifestyle activities, encompassing regular vigorous exercise, eating a nutritious diet, consistently getting sufficient hours of restful sleep at night, and having a positive mental attitude. But none of these healthy lifestyles is obtainable without intention, planning, and effort. In a very real sense, we have to make room in our busy lives for the activities that will help to keep us healthy and well.

Consistency and habit are the keys to adopting and maintaining healthy lifestyles. If one is not eating a nutritious diet or not doing 30 minutes of vigorous exercise at least 5 times a week, it may seem impossible to get these things done. Inertia holds sway and it's all too easy to believe that it's just too much trouble. But from the perspective of efficiency and utility, as well as from the perspective of health and wellness, the benefits of spending time now to engage in healthy lifestyles far outweigh the multiple costs of having developed a chronic illness later on. The good news is that as you begin to perform daily lifestyle activities, the successes you begin to achieve build upon each other and you instinctively want to continue doing the things that are making you feel healthier. This reinforcement helps establish consistency and helps establish healthy lifestyle habits.

Regular chiropractic care helps us accomplish all our healthy lifestyle activities. By detecting and correcting sources of nerve irritation, regular chiropractic care helps ensure optimal functioning of your nerve system, your body's master system. As your nerve system controls all the physiological functions of your other body systems, regular chiropractic care helps ensure that your body as a whole is working at peak efficiency. In this way, regular chiropractic care helps your body put all your lifestyle activities to good use, and helps you and your family achieve long-term health and wellness.

Testimonials

  • "This is an amazing clinic! Dr. Curt helped me with my low back and hip pain brought on by pregnancy, and made me feel completely comfortable the minute I met him. Very nice, knowledgeable, and truly interested in any issues I have going on. Best of all, there was NEVER any pressure to set up future appointments or sales pressure from anyone there. This is the only clinic I will ever go to from now on!
    Amazing doctors!"
    - Jolene / Rosemount, MN
  • "AMAZING DOCTORS! I had terrible pain in my knee for weeks. It hurt to go up and down the stairs, it hurt and ached driving to work and even just sitting. I was in constant pain. I went in to see Dr. Nick and he knew exactly what I needed and put me back in place. Dr. Nick does a wonderful and thorough job.
    Loved going to these guys"
    - DRT, Rosemount, MN
  • "I have loved going to these guys for years but failed to consult them on a big problem from last summer. I went to my physician who had me go through many tests and had no answers or relief! At my last appointment I mentioned it to Dr. Nick who asked me why I hadn't come in earlier. Good question! After one appointment I felt great relief, not to mention finally getting an answer!

    My problem: Pain in the muscle under my left breast. It was constantly bothering me. I made changes in my clothing, had a mammogram, an ultra sound and numerous consultations. Never once did they recommend a chiropractor. Dr. Nick traced the rib to my back and located the problem area in one appointment!

    Recommendation-Don't wait to get a second opinion! These guys are amazing and I highly recommend them!
    Great people and great doctors"
    - Brenda H., Rosemount, MN

If you have never been to a chiropractor or have had a bad experience please give them a try you will never go anywhere else!
