Chico Wellness Doctor Helps Patients Get Healthy for Life
At Masula Chiropractic Neurology and Family Wellness, our Chico wellness doctor is committed to optimizing your overall health. We believe that good health is more than just the absence of pain or injury – well being is when the entire body operates in harmony and balance. Dr. Larry Masula, can help you not only enjoy long-lasting pain relief, but also enhance your overall health. Here are 3 ways that chiropractic care can make a difference for your well being:
1. Managing stress and fatigue. When the body is not properly aligned, the nervous system is unable to send and receive messages for normal functionality. For example, when our bodies are constantly under stress, we are flooded with cortisol, a hormone that contributes to weight gain. Together, a misaligned body and daily stress is a recipe for increased blood pressure, weight gain, fatigue and general exhaustion. Chiropractic adjustments, coupled with complementary treatments like massage therapy, bring balance back to the body – centering our minds, relaxing muscles, and increasing energy.
2. Enhancing athletic performance. If you are a competitive athlete or just enjoy the occasional run, a misalignment in the musculoskeletal system may be setting your body up for injury. When our body is out of alignment, exercise places unnecessary strain can be placed on the knees, ankles and low back. Spinal adjustments correct these misalignments before they cause a serious problem.
3. Changing unhealthy habits. Whether you need to quit smoking, turn off the TV and start exercising, or simply make better food choices, Dr. Masula’s lifestyle and nutritional counseling can help.
