Due to the weather changing and it's getting colder outside, we know there's a surplus of people living on the streets and with the encampments we want to help these people by giving.
 Lyn Lake Chiropractic  will be putting together something we call - Caring Bags.

These Caring Bags will allow us to go around the Minneapolis area and hand out to people that need a little hope and help. We're putting many different items in these bags to hand out. Some of the many items will be - hand warmers, tooth paste, tooth brush, warm hats and gloves, snacks, little water bottles and a gift card so they can get something warm to eat and maybe give them a chance to warm up.

If you want to donate something to put in these Caring Bags, just drop it off at either Lyn Quick read more or view full article

We just ordered 300 draw string back packs and once they get here (within two weeks), the chiropractors and staff at Lyn Lake Chiropractic will stuff the bags and hit the streets.  If this is a sucess we would like to do more of these Caring Bags all winter.

Just trying to give back and help our community!

How You Can Help Improve Your Back Health

January 1, 2017
How You Can Help Improve Your Back Health
 
While one of our primary goals for all of our North East Minneapolis chiropractic patients is to give you the best musculoskeletal health possible, the reality is that we can only do so much in the few minutes a week that we see you. This means that a bulk of the responsibility falls back on you and the behaviors you do or do not engage in that can ultimately affect your back health.
What types of behaviors?
  • Paying attention to your posture. When you walk, stand, or sit with poor posture, you’re not only fatiguing your muscles as they work to keep you upright, but you also limit your mobility as your discs and joints fall out of line. One way to break this habit is to put a sticky note someplace where Quick read more or view full article you will see it often, reminding you to sit or stand up straight.
  • Taking your vitamins. Certain vitamins and minerals can help improve the strength and stability of your spine. These include vitamin D and calcium, the two nutrients that Harvard Medical School calls the “keys to strong bones.”
  • Drinking enough water. When you’re born, your spinal discs are comprised of 80 percent water. This enables them to work as they should. Therefore, in order to keep them operating at maximum function, you want to make sure you drink enough water.
  • Getting more active. If you tend to spend a lot of time sitting, you may notice the effects in your back due to the inactivity. Of course, the way to remedy this is to simply get more physical activity. Even if it’s not a standard exercise program, anything you can do to move around more can help.
  • Letting go of your ego. Sometimes it’s easier to do things yourself versus asking for help. However, if you lift things that are too heavy or awkward for you, then you risk injuring your back, potentially setting you up for massive problems both immediately and later in life. Ask for help when you need it. It may keep you from being in pain, making it more than worth it.
All of these things, in addition to regular chiropractic treatments, can help you improve the health of your back. If you want more ideas, just ask us the next time you’re in our Northeast Minneapolis chiropractic office! We’d love to help you get and stay back pain-free!
