Brooks Chiropractic Care Encourages Exercise for a Healthy Heart and Mind

It’s February in Brooks. It’s the month of hearts. They’re everywhere! So how’s your heart? Is it healthy? Is it mind-supporting? The healthy question affects its physical health for which exercise is a logical activity. The mind-supporting question involves  its effect on the mind and cognition and vice versa. No matter the stage of life of its owner, the heart is central to the life of each of our Brooks chiropractic care patients whether they have back pain or neck pain or not. Soft Health and Healing Clinic celebrates the healthy, mind-supporting heart!


The healthy heart needs attention. No Brooks chiropractic treatment plan is complete without it. Soft Health and Healing Clinic encourages all our Brooks chiropractic patients and their families and friends to provide it a lot of attention. Attention via some good Brooks cardiovascular activity is amazing 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 Brooks folks! Exercise enhances cardiovascular fitness and decreases major depressive disorders in relatively inactive adolescent/early adulthood people. (1) Of course, the trick is to develop an exercise alternative that can stimulate a typically sedentary depressed adolescent person to exercise regularly. (2) Soft Health and Healing Clinic is quite aware of many Brooks parents who can relate to this as well as partners of Brooks back pain sufferers seeking Brooks chiropractic help for it! Now on the other end of the spectrum, the older folks who do best are those who keep physically active, those who keep mentally active, those who maintain a positive attitude toward healthy ageing, those who involve their minds. Researchers note 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) Soft Health and Healing Clinic treats many older Brooks chiropractic patients who enjoy  life fully and recover from back pain and other aches and pains more rapidly when they are involved in life. It keeps their hearts full and their minds linked to 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 help certain types of memory consolidation. (4) Another report shares that exercise like Tai Chi brings the mind into body exercise. It affects the heart rate beneficially – its rate and blood flow - for older adults’ cardiac health and cognitive function. (5) Soft Health and Healing Clinic encourages 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.
