What Causes Inflammation? Sea Lark Chiropractic will tell you!

Bottom Line: Chronic inflammation is one of the most significant health issues many of us will face today. It's been linked to everything from chronic pain to a wide range of other mild and serious medical conditions. It's important not to mistake acute inflammation for chronic inflammation. Acute inflammation describes your body's natural defense mechanism against injuries or toxins. When your immune system is constantly stressed, it can then lead to chronic inflammation which in turn can lead to other conditions. 

Why it Matters: In 2014, it was estimated that over 50% of people had at least one chronic condition, and 40% had more than one. Chronic inflammatory diseases can include respiratory and heart disorders as well as diabetes. The majority of these disorders are linked directly to our lifestyle choices. Each day you have the option to either increase or decrease your state of inflammation. Here are some fundamental ways to start taking your life back from chronic inflammation: 

  • Eat right. Fruits and vegetables are high in natural antioxidants and may protect the body against inflammation. 
  • Get enough rest. Maintaining a regular sleep schedule can reduce your physical and emotional stress levels, which has been linked to a lower risk of chronic inflammation. 
  • Stay active. Exercise can lower the amount of pro-inflammatory chemicals in your body and benefit your cardiovascular and mental health.

Next Steps: Reducing your risk of chronic disease and inflammation begins with the choices you make each and every day, and we're here to help you make the best decisions to help you live a full, active, and healthy life. If you believe you're not eating, sleeping, or moving as well as you would like, be sure you have an appointment scheduled with us. Together, we’ll analyze your habits and create a plan to get you and your well-being back on track!

Testimonials

  • "This was my first chiropractic visit and I will definitely continue to see Dr. Venessa! The space is beautiful and clean. The person working reception was welcoming, knowledgeable and seemed happy to answer my questions. I was able to complete my paperwork before coming in so there was no wait. Dr. Venessa asked me some questions and did a sort of assessment before my adjustment. She kept me informed of what she would be doing and has a nice bedside manner so nothing seemed awkward. She finished my adjustment and I checked out. All in all I had a great experience in the office but what happened after was even better- my energy increased like crazy! At first I didn’t even consider it might have been from my adjustment. I was just talking with my husband when he asked if I thought it may have been from my chiro appointment so I googled it and apparently that’s common! So again, very happy with my experience and I will be back!"
