Your health is your most valuable asset and should be preserved at the cost of all other ambitions. Oftentimes, people claim they are too busy with their lives, careers, or kids to give their health the proper attention it deserves. However, you must make time for wellness or your body will force you to make time for recovery. What does that mean? Traditional healthcare models recommend consulting a doctor when you are sick or experiencing varying levels of discomfort; however, this model places little to no focus on the everyday decisions that contribute to your overall wellness. Preventative health options, like chiropractic care, have lasting benefits and are the crucial difference between healthcare and wellness care.
What is the difference between health and wellness? Health is your current state of being and wellness is your overall state of being. For example, your health is how you feel at this moment, (no cold, no fever, no aches or pain,), and your wellness is a combination of all your life choices (do you smoke, drink, get enough sleep) that will determine how you feel in twenty years. So someone who has no cold or fevers, but smokes a pack of cigarettes a day, might have decent health but poor wellness. The best thing you can do for your wellness is to be proactive about your health and work with professionals who are focused on natural and holistic services that preserve health. For example, red light therapy can have major benefits to the body and your overall wellness, but what is red light therapy?
What is Red light Therapy?
Red light therapy is the use of low-level lasers in the form of red light waves to treat scars, wounds, sports injuries, and aching muscles. It was originally used by scientists to grow plant seeds in space but was later discovered to have beneficial medical applications because of how it affects the cells. When combined with chiropractic care, red light therapy can have a large impact on your recovery and your overall wellness.
Why Do I Need Red Light Therapy
Red Light Therapy increases cell energy, and allows them to complete processes more efficiently. Your cells constantly die and replace themselves a million times over throughout your lifetime. If you sustain an injury, hurt your back, or scrape your knee, the body will heal by repairing and replacing those cells. Red Light Therapy improves the efficiency of that process, and allows healing to happen faster.
How Does Red Light Therapy Enhance My Chiropractic Experience
Chiropractic care improves the body’s communication system by reducing interference or hindrance to the nervous system. Red Light Therapy improves cells efficiency by increasing the rate at which the mitochondria can create energy. When combined, you experience the benefits of a care plan that targets and enhances the body’s natural healing abilities to increase circulation, reduce inflammation, and improve recovery time.
Total Wellness Solutions
When you work with the Total Wellness Solutions chiropractic team, you can expect to work with a team of professionals who understand the difference between health and wellness and the value of preserving both. For example, if you are suffering from chronic discomfort, we will address the source of the problem by pinpointing the root of the discomfort and designing a recovery plan to heal the condition and eliminate symptoms of pain. However, if you are not in any pain, we will create a plan to maintain that pain-free state for the foreseeable future. This may include regular spinal adjustments, massage therapy, or Red Light Therapy.
Your muscles and joints will wear with age, but working with the Total Wellness Solutions team can slow down that process and give you more time to participate in the activities you enjoy. For example, if you run two marathons a year, then the training alone places a considerable amount of stress on your joints. Red Light Therapy combined with chiropractic care, can effectively treat misalignments, inflammation, increase cellular health, and improve blood flow to the knees and allow it to better withstand the demands of a runner’s training schedule. Regardless of if you are a runner, a seamstress, or a photographer, chiropractic care and the Total Wellness Solutions team can help preserve your joint health and keep you active for the years to come.
When you work with professionals who prioritize your wellness, you have better days, more energy, and the freedom to participate in more demanding and enjoyable activities. Your wellness is a combination of every decision you make and will determine how active you are in the years to come. Eating healthy and getting proper exercise is a great start, but it is equally as important to care for your joints, muscles, and spinal health. For example, you could be an avid runner on a strict diet, but if you have never worked with a chiropractor, your knees are on a deadline. They might be healthy now, but without proper joint care, they won’t remain that way. When you work with the Total Wellness Solutions team, we will utilize innovative care options like red light therapy to help maintain your long-term wellness.
