Archdale Chiropractor Shares a Few Health Tips in Honor of Men’s Health Month, Archdale, North Carolina

June is National Men’s Health Month—a Congressional health education initiative that is celebrated nationwide. During the month of June, you can expect to see health fairs, free screenings, and other outreach initiatives all over the country in an attempt to educate men on the importance of taking care of themselves. From getting enough rest to utilizing holistic health approaches, such as visits to the chiropractor, this month is all about taking a proactive approach to general wellness.

3 Healthcare Tips in Honor of Men’s Health Month 

1. Know Your Limits

chiropractorRegular physical activity is an essential component of any healthy lifestyle; however, if you push yourself too hard, it will likely result in an overuse injury. Listen to your body, and make sure you give yourself plenty of time to recover between especially strenuous bouts of exercise.  Varying your workouts regularly will also help prevent strains and sprains.

2. Prioritize Sleep

Both your mind and your body recover while you sleep, and getting plenty of it is essential for your mental and physical health. Try to get at least seven hours of sleep a night, regardless of how much work you have to do. No matter how busy you are, do your best to practice positive time management skills and prioritize sleep.

3. Do Your Research

As you age, your healthcare needs are going to change. For example, if you are in good health, you should undergo a blood pressure screening every three to five years; an eye exam every two years; a general wellness exam every year; and, after turning 35, a cholesterol screening every five years. If you have certain health conditions or you are at risk for one, you may need to undergo additional screenings at regular intervals. Make sure you understand what your own particular needs are, so you can take a preventative approach to your health.

 

Even if you do not currently suffer from back or neck pain, visiting a chiropractor can also be a form of preventative medicine, and regular spinal adjustments will help you maintain your mobility and flexibility as you age.
