No matter what you think of the pandemic, the last two years have been rough on everyone. Your family may have been spared, you may have been ill, and/or you may have lost someone dear to you. This added to the disruption of our lives, has caused mass uncertainty and stress.

We have reported often about the negative impact of stress on your wellbeing. Now, more than ever, we need to be mindful of the things we can do to support our innate power to heal. Researchers note increased levels of mental health challenges for all age groups.

In addition, many people have postponed and/or cancelled regular healthcare appointments. While this is understandable, it’s important to find ways to care for yourself as we move forward.


Doctor Cure Thyself

photo of Ed Mallen, Chiropractor, West Palm Beach, FL Who would have thought two years ago, when we started hearing about this novel coronavirus, that we would still be dealing with it today? For the two weeks we were closed at the beginning of this pandemic, we pivoted and made changes in the office to keep staff and patients safe. I’m proud of these efforts by my staff that allow us to continue to offer you excellent chiropractic, massage, and acupuncture.

This is the perfect moment for me to remind you of all the health tips I’ve been sharing over the last two decades. Eat a balanced diet of anti-inflammatory foods, find time to exercise 20-30 mins at least three times a week, practice healthy sleep habits, stay hydrated, meditate (ask me for simple instructions if you’ve never done it), make a gratitude list, spend time in nature, find ways to celebrate your life.

We’re always here ready to help you achieve optimum wellbeing.


Advice from Dr. Giovanni

Giovanni Cervantes, DC Many patients tend to forget how important motion is regarding spinal health and injury prevention. The phrase I always love to use in the office is, “Movement is medicine.” And when you think about it, it truly is the foundation to everything we do.
Research has proven the benefits of exercise, from improving cardiovascular health, increasing bone density, and reducing the occurrence of falls. Exercise along with chiropractic care work even better in conjunction since both the muscular and skeletal system work together to create synergy and stability in our bodies.

Even though cardiovascular activity is important, I always recommend adding weight training to one’s regimen, since as we age our muscle mass decreases. As this happens, our susceptibility to injury becomes higher, and other aspects such as mobility, balance/coordination, and even our metabolism decreases. To quote one of my favorite athletes, Mr. Mark Bell, “Strength is never a weakness.” Do not be afraid to get strong and be the best version you can be. I promise your body will thank you.


A note about our office policies:

In an effort to serve our patients while keeping us all safe, we are continuing to follow CDC guidance for health care providers. Furthermore, all of our staff members are vaccinated.
 
We require masks of all patients and visitors. I know this isn’t easy at times, but I thank you from the bottom of my heart. As many of you know, my wife, Annie, is immunocompromised and remains at higher risk for severe disease. We are both grateful for your cooperation and support.
 
We ask that if you have any symptoms associated with Covid, you do not come into the office. We are happy to reschedule you in that case.
~ Again, many thanks, Dr. Mallen
