Peoria Chiropractic Care Encourages Exercise for a Healthy Heart and Mind

It’s February in Peoria. 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 concerns its physical health for which exercise is a no-brainer. The mind-supporting question concerns  its influence on the mind and cognition and vice versa. No matter the age of its owner, the heart is essential to the life of each of our Peoria chiropractic care patients whether they have back pain or neck pain or not. Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture rejoices in the healthy, mind-supporting heart!


The healthy heart needs attention. No Peoria chiropractic treatment plan is complete without it. Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture urges all our Peoria chiropractic patients and their families and friends to give it a lot of attention. Attention via some good Peoria cardiovascular action is incredible for the heart…and achieves so much more than just work the heart. It enriches the lives and minds of all people with a heart, all of us Peoria folks! Exercise enhances cardiovascular fitness and lessens 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 typically sedentary depressed adolescent person to exercise regularly. (2) Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture knows many Peoria parents who can relate to this as well as partners of Peoria back pain sufferers seeking Peoria chiropractic help for it! Now on the other end of the spectrum, the older folks who do best are those who keep physically energetic, those who keep mentally active, those who keep a positive attitude to healthy ageing, those who occupy their minds. Researchers note that these folks participate in a combination of sedentary things (reading/crosswords) and active things (walking/helping others). Doing these activities in a social context is optimal. (3) Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture treats many older Peoria chiropractic patients who enjoy  life immensely and recover from back pain and other aches and pains more swiftly when they are engrossed 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 presents that regular exercise facilitates the mind and its cognition. It reduces the risk of age-related cognitive decline. Intense exercise may even assist in certain types of memory consolidation. (4) Another report shares that exercise like Tai Chi brings the mind into body exercise. It shapes the heart rate beneficially – its rate and blood flow - for older adults’ cardiac health and cognitive function. (5) Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture 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 great condition.
