Sitka Chiropractic Care Encourages Exercise for a Healthy Heart and Mind

It’s February in Sitka. It’s the month of hearts. You cannot escape the hearts! So how’s your heart? Is it healthy? Is it mind-supporting? The healthy question affects its physical health for which exercise is a no-brainer. The mind-supporting question concerns  its effect on the mind and cognition and vice versa. No matter the stage of life of its owner, the heart is essential to the life of each of our Sitka chiropractic care patients whether they have back pain or neck pain or not. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka rejoices in the healthy, mind-supporting heart!


The healthy heart demands attention. No Sitka chiropractic treatment plan is complete without it. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka encourages all our Sitka chiropractic patients and their families and friends to provide it a lot of attention. Attention via some good Sitka cardiovascular motion is wonderful for the heart…and achieves considerably more than just work the heart. It enhances the lives and minds of all people with a heart, all of us Sitka folks! Exercise increases cardiovascular fitness and decreases major depressive disorders in relatively inactive adolescent/early adulthood people. (1) Of course, the trick is to develop an exercise option that can stimulate a normally sedentary depressed adolescent person to exercise regularly. (2) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka knows many Sitka parents who get this as well as partners of Sitka back pain sufferers seeking Sitka chiropractic help for it! Now on the other end of the spectrum, the older folks who experience better outcomes are those who keep physically energetic, those who keep mentally active, those who maintain a positive outlook toward healthy ageing, those who occupy their minds. Researchers report that these folks do a mix of sedentary things (reading/crosswords) and active things (walking/helping others). Doing these activities in a social context is best. (3) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka sees many older Sitka chiropractic patients who enjoy  life fully and bounce back from back pain and other aches and pains more rapidly when they are engaged in life. It keeps their hearts full and their minds in touch with their hearts.


Keeping the mind full and active and keeping the heart mind-related benefits all ages. One report shares that regular exercise helps the mind and its cognition. It lessens the risk of age-related cognitive decline. Intense exercise may even help certain types of memory consolidation. (4) Another report discusses that exercise like Tai Chi brings the mind into body exercise. It influences the heart rate beneficially – its rate and blood flow - for older adults’ cardiac health and cognitive function. (5) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka urges a mix of heart-related exercise from more intense to less intense to keep the heart – the physical one and the mind-related one – in top shape.
