Vancouver Chiropractic Care Encourages Exercise for a Healthy Heart and Mind

It’s February in Vancouver. It is the month of hearts. You cannot escape the hearts! So how’s your heart? Is it healthy? Is it mind-supporting? The healthy question affects its physical health for which exercise is a no-brainer. The mind-supporting question affects  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 Vancouver chiropractic care patients whether they have back pain or neck pain or not. Vancouver Disc Centers rejoices in the healthy, mind-supporting heart!


The healthy heart deserves attention. No Vancouver chiropractic treatment plan is complete without it. Vancouver Disc Centers urges all our Vancouver chiropractic patients and their families and friends to give it a lot of attention. Attention via some good Vancouver cardiovascular activity is wonderful for the heart…and achieves so much more than just work the heart. It improves the lives and minds of all people with a heart, all of us Vancouver folks! Exercise improves cardiovascular fitness and lessens major depressive disorders in relatively inactive adolescent/early adulthood people. (1) Of course, the trick is to create an exercise alternative that can stimulate a typically sedentary depressed adolescent person to exercise on a regular basis. (2) Vancouver Disc Centers is quite aware of many Vancouver parents who can relate to this as well as partners of Vancouver back pain sufferers seeking Vancouver 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 keep a positive outlook to healthy ageing, those who occupy their minds. Researchers note that these folks do a assortment of sedentary things (reading/crosswords) and active things (walking/helping others). Doing these activities in a social context is best. (3) Vancouver Disc Centers treats many older Vancouver chiropractic patients who enjoy  life fully and recover 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 lessens 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 influences the heart rate beneficially – its rate and blood flow - for older adults’ cardiac health and cognitive function. (5) Vancouver Disc Centers encourages a combination of heart-related exercise from more intense to less intense to keep the heart – the physical one and the mind-related one – in great shape.
