It’s a brand new 2016, and for many people, this is the month of year they think about their health plan for the upcoming year. Perhaps your place of employment has gotten a new health insurance plan for you. Maybe you’re shopping for dental insurance or planning how much to save in a health savings account. And with the new Affordable Care Act laws finally going into full effect, you might have some information to navigate if you are taking that route.
But still, many people take a reactive approach to health, healthcare, and paying for healthcare. They figure they don’t know what the upcoming year will bring, and will just need to react to whatever happens. For example, some cold and flu seasons are worse than others. Will you go to the doctor 4 times this year for a cold? Not at all? Who knows, right?
With the start of a new year, it may be a good time to thinking about a proactive approach to health and overall wellness. To be sure, there will always be doctor’s visits and medical expenses that can’t be predicted, but there are some things you could be doing to try to stay on top of your health.
For example, getting into a good, healthy exercise routine is an excellent preventative health measure. Not only will your muscles be in better shape, exercise can help your immune system be its best as well. You have a much better chance of fighting off the common cold or flu the healthier you are.
And then there’s chiropractic care. Though many people don’t realize it, being in an ongoing chiropractic care routine has a whole host of preventative health benefits. First of all, being in a good routine simply makes your body feel better so you can stick to that workout routine and have fewer excuses for stopping it. Second, ongoing chiropractic care has actually been shown to help strengthen the immune system so you have a better chance of warding off those common colds and the flu.
While too many to post here, there are many more proactive health benefits of getting into an ongoing chiropractic care routine. If you’re looking for skilled and helpful Mequon or Cedarburg chiropractors, contact ProHealth Chiropratic today. We want 2016 to be your healthiest year yet!
