Getting Back on Track

Here in Western Pennsylvania, today marks the start of our move into the “Yellow” phase of re-opening after the Covid-19 stay at home orders.  For our family, we are looking at this move into “yellow” as a re-set point to get ourselves back on track to our healthy habits.

While we consider ourselves to be of general good health, at the start of 2020, we recommitted ourselves to a new regimen of eating healthy and exercise.  We used a system that we had planned to roll out to our patients this spring.  The pandemic, however, brought things to a halt.  While we had the best intentions of staying on track, with our gym closed and comfort eating becoming one of our nightly habits.

Let’s just say we strayed a little off course.   Maybe you’ve had the same experience?

Sometimes We Need a Re-set

Sometimes you need a symbolic push to get things back in gear, whether it be the start of a new year or, what the heck, moving to “yellow”.

As we re-start our routine, we will share some things here that we are doing with you along the way, in hopes of inspiring the same in your home.   We encourage you, if you’ve gotten a little off course, make a plan to re-set your healthy routines as well.

And, here’s to hoping our light switches to “Green” soon!

Athletes and Chiropractic

Swimmer (1)Tiger Woods, Michael Phelps, and Usain Bolt – these are just a few names of professional athletes who have used chiropractic to enhance their athletic performance.

Chiropractic can help both the professional and amateur athlete.

Dr. Sciullo has treated many different types of athletes, such as swimmers, football players, competitive weight lifters, wrestlers and gymnasts.

Here are some ways that an athlete can benefit from chiropractic.

  • Prevent wear and tear on the body. Strenuous activity can lead to spinal misalignment. Reduce the effect with adjustments.
  • Treat injuries naturally, without drugs. Avoid treatment that could lead to a risk of dependency or side effects.
  • Improve performance with preventative treatment. By keeping your body in alignment, you can avoid some minor injuries that could hamper your performance.
  • Reduce joint pain and muscle soreness post-activity. Spinal adjustments can increase your flexibility, which also helps to reduce injury.

Whether you’re competing at a professional level or a weekend warrior, chiropractic may be a positive addition to your sports performance strategy.
