Carrolltown Chiropractic Care Encourages Exercise for a Healthy Heart and Mind

It is February in Carrolltown. It’s the month of hearts. They are everywhere! So how is 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 affects  its effect on the mind and cognition and vice versa. No matter the stage of life of its owner, the heart is key to the life of each of our Carrolltown chiropractic care patients whether they have back pain or neck pain or not. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation rejoices in the healthy, mind-supporting heart!


The healthy heart demands attention. No Carrolltown chiropractic treatment plan is complete without it. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation encourages all our Carrolltown chiropractic patients and their families and friends to award it a lot of attention. Attention via some good Carrolltown cardiovascular activity is wonderful for the heart…and achieves considerably more than just work the heart. It improves the lives and minds of all people with a heart, all of us Carrolltown folks! Exercise enhances cardiovascular fitness and lessens major depressive disorders in relatively inactive adolescent/early adulthood people. (1) Of course, the trick is to create an exercise choice that can motivate a characteristically sedentary depressed adolescent person to exercise regularly. (2) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is quite aware of many Carrolltown parents who can relate to this as well as partners of Carrolltown back pain sufferers turning to Carrolltown chiropractic help for it! Now on the other end of the spectrum, the older folks who experience better outcomes are those who keep physically energetic, those who keep mentally active, those who keep a positive attitude to healthy ageing, those who engage 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) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation treats many older Carrolltown chiropractic patients who enjoy  life immensely and bounce back from back pain and other aches and pains more swiftly 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 helps all ages. One report shares that regular exercise facilitates the mind and its cognition. It lowers 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 affects the heart rate beneficially – its rate and blood flow - for older adults’ cardiac health and cognitive function. (5) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation 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 great condition.
