Yoga is an activity that is only gaining in popularity as more and more folks take classes or build their own yoga practices at home. Yoga is a great companion with chiropractic care when it comes to keeping the body flexible and at peak functionality, which will help you both treat injuries and avoid injuries.
Below are a few health benefits one can expect after building a strong yoga practice.
It's Good for Your Heart and Circulation
Yoga increases your heart health and also boosts circulation in the body, which will help you function at optimum capacity. Yoga has also been shown to be beneficial in preventing heart disease and diabetes alongside a healthy diet and lifestyle.
Boost Cognitive Function
Your brain and body might have a communication jam which can result in "dim bulb." If you're feeling anything less than 100% between the ears, yoga and chiropractic care can improve cognitive function by improving the brain/body communication system.
Increase Flexibility and Range of Motion
Increasing your flexibility and range of motion (two of the most noticeable benefits from yoga) will help you avoid injury and improve your athleticism.
As we mentioned previously, chiropractic care is a great addition to an active lifestyle. Yoga and chiropractic care are a one-two wellness punch you need in your life. Contact Barton Chiropractic Clinic today to schedule your consultation.
Many folks only associate chiropractic care with the back, which, it's true, that's a lot of what we do at Barton Chiropractic Clinic since we specialize in chiropractic care, which has to do with the spine and all. However, chiropractic care has a host of benefits to offer patients they might not be aware of. Whether you're in pain or suffering from lack of sleep, chiropractic care might be the all-natural, drug-free answer to your problems.
Read on for a few signs you could benefit from chiropractic care.
1.) Your Back is in Pain
Back pain, whether it's in your lower, middle, or upper back, can be treated with chiropractic care. We can provide adjustments for spine misalignment that will give you benefits like increased circulation, reduction of pain, treatment of injury, and more.
2.) Your Range of Motion is Limited
Sometimes a car accident, a work injury, or even sleeping the wrong way can leave us limited in our mobility due to neck or back pain. Chiropractic care is the perfect antidote that will help increase your flexibility and your range of motion.
3.) You Suffer from Dim Bulb
If you feel like your brain isn't firing on all cylinders, this could be because your nervous system is disrupted. Chiropractic care has been shown to clear the lines of communication between your body and your brain, increasing awareness and mental clarity.
4.) You Suffer from Anxiety
If you're feeling anxiety or suffering from insomnia, chiropractic care has been shown to benefit symptoms associated with these conditions.

At Barton Chiropractic Clinic we believe in the power of a good night's sleep. Restful sleep will help you feel more energized throughout your day and will also help your body regenerate and cleanse itself of toxins you're exposed to without even knowing it.
When we're drowsy, we're more prone to getting an injury (back injuries being a big one), whether that occurs at home or in the workplace, or anywhere else in between.
Below we go over a few ways to capture more restful sleep every night.
Running, swimming, or doing some other type of cardio 4-5 times per week will help you achieve more restful sleep. Our bodies are wired genetically to hunt and gather, and many of us get anxiety because we're inactive at work and at home most of the week. We carry that unused energy straight to bed with us. You'll be surprised how well you sleep after you go "out there" and "get after it" a little.
Have a Caffeine Cut-Off Time
Stop letting yourself have caffeine past 4pm if you plan on going to sleep around 10pm. Try to make sure you're not getting anything more than 50 grams of caffeine on a daily basis.
Visit Your Chiropractor
Visiting your chiropractor is a relaxing experience that will help your body's functionality -- and you'll feel great afterwards. Chiropractic is a drug-free pain management solution that can help you get better sleep at night.

So we all likely know the obvious health benefits of chiropractic care, such as drug-free, all-natural pain relief, as well as the correction of spine misalignment, which helps increase the functionality of the body and brain, increase range of motion, etc. However, there are an entire host of benefits to chiropractic that fly below the radar.
Below are some of the less obvious benefits of chiropractic care.

It's Good for the Heart

Helps Patients Achieve Restful Sleep

Increases Mental Awareness
Chiropractic care will help put you more in touch with your own body, which will increase your awareness down the road should you experience any pain or issues.

When we go through our daily lives, not many of us are thinking about our bodies in the long term sense.
This is especially true when it comes to our backs and our joints, which have a little more to say in the matter as we advance in age. Below are a few measures you can take that will help you reduce the wear and tear your body experiences on a daily basis.
Maintain Healthy Weight
Maintaining a healthy weight is not only good for keeping a great appearance, but it's also good for your health. Staying near your ideal body weight also ensures that your body isn't working extra hard in any department and that no part of your body is experiencing unnecessary damage.
See Your Chiropractor Regularly
This one is a no-brainer. Seeing your neighborhood chiropractor in Homewood, IL is good for your spine and your joint health.
Staying hydrated ensures your body and your joints are receiving the right amount of lubrication. Drinking half your body weight in ounces of water will help you revitalize your body and prep it for the long haul.
Tweak Your Diet
Incorporating leafy greens and other healthy vegetables into your diet will help your body improve its functionality. Staying away from inflammatory sugars and processed carbs will also help your spine and your joints stay healthy.
