5 Helpful Tips
Everyone knows that quality chiropractic care can provide a wide range of benefits for nearly every individual. No matter your age or body type, chiropractic adjustments may prove to be a beneficial way to reduce pain and discomfort without the need for medications or invasive surgeries. We can provide the manual adjustments and advice needed to feel good again, but this is not the only part of the puzzle when it comes to your overall health.

Advice telling you to drink enough water is not a newsflash, we know. Proper hydration helps the body in many ways, including boosting your immune system, temperature regulation, and improved cardiovascular health. Patients who visit our chiropractors in Fargo are often surprised to learn that drinking enough water can also help reduce joint pain. Hydration is a key way to feel better, so be sure you are consuming enough H2O on a daily basis!
Improve Your Diet
Your diet may play a larger role in your joint pain than you realize. Many people we treat undergo our Functional Medicine testing to look for any discrepancies in nutrition or diet. In many cases, making an improvement to diet can help provide a number of benefits. Our Fargo chiropractors can help you create an ideal nutrition plan to help you feel better. A number of foods are known to help individuals suffering from issues such as arthritis. The right fuel can improve your body’s processes and improve the functionality of your central nervous system.
Conversely, eating unhealthy foods can cause inflammation and pain. Highly processed sugars, trans fats, dairy-rich products, and other unhealthy foods can all place undue stress on the body, impacting the central nervous system among other things. This may result in inflammation and joint pain. Our advice? Eat right!
While pain and discomfort can make mobility a challenge, it is often highly recommended to get out and move more. Regular exercise will strengthen your muscles and increase flexibility. Increased strength helps to keep your core engaged and protect the spine from poor posture. Improved flexibility decreases overall discomfort and can help to better enhance the results of your chiropractic treatments.
Focus on Posture
Even if regular visits to your local chiropractor help you feel better, you may still live with pain if your posture is incorrect. Many patients we treat suffer from issues associated with working at a desk all day. If you’re confined to a desk for a full work week, it is recommended to focus on the best posture to reduce fatigue and minimize the risk of injury. Be sure that your monitors are at eye level to prevent craning in the neck (also keep this in mind for cell phones!). Set your chair so that your elbows and knees are at 90 degrees while your feet are flat on the floor. Don’t forget to take frequent breaks!
Beyond these four basic tips to enhance your chiropractic adjustments (and improve your overall health), the most important thing that you can do is stay committed to your health plan. Many first-time patients visit our Fargo chiropractors with the idea that one treatment will provide profound and lasting changes. The reality is that the body takes time to heal and grow, and numerous sessions may be needed to generate favorable results. Failure to come back in may leave you back where you started — in pain and more frustrated than ever.
If your body was misaligned or dysfunctional for a long period of time, keep in mind that it will likely take some time for your body to heal. Each patient is unique in their needs, meaning that our chiropractic team will need to assess your body in order to generate one of our Finally Feel Good Plans. These comprehensive plans cover everything your body needs to recover, restoring your energy and mobility while providing lasting relief. Our chiropractors like to remind patients of how back pain relief can be like staying in shape — failure to hit the gym regularly can result in a loss of gains. We have the training and experience to help you feel good again, all you need to do is stay committed to the plan!
