Richmond Chiropractic Care Encourages Exercise for a Healthy Heart and Mind

February 13, 2018

It is February in Richmond. It’s 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 logical activity. The mind-supporting question affects  its effect 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 Richmond chiropractic care patients whether they have back pain or neck pain or not. Johnson Chiropractic rejoices in the healthy, mind-supporting heart!


The healthy heart needs attention. No Richmond chiropractic treatment plan is complete without it. Johnson Chiropractic encourages all our Richmond chiropractic patients and their families and friends to deliver it a lot of attention. Attention via some good Richmond cardiovascular motion is wonderful for the heart…and does so much more than just work the heart. It enriches the lives and minds of all people with a heart, all of us Richmond folks! Exercise increases cardiovascular fitness and decreases major depressive disorders in relatively inactive adolescent/early adulthood people. (1) Of course, the trick is to develop an exercise option that can inspire a normally sedentary depressed adolescent person to exercise regularly. (2) Johnson Chiropractic knows many Richmond parents who can relate to this as well as partners of Richmond back pain sufferers turning to Richmond 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 maintain a positive outlook to healthy ageing, those who occupy their minds. Researchers note that these folks do a combination of sedentary things (reading/crosswords) and active things (walking/helping others). Doing these things in a social context is optimal. (3) Johnson Chiropractic sees many older Richmond 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 in touch with their hearts.


Keeping the mind full and active and keeping the heart mind-related benefits all ages. One report shares that regular exercise facilitates the mind and its cognition. It reduces the risk of age-related cognitive decline. Intense exercise may even facilitate certain types of memory consolidation. (4) Another report shares that exercise like Tai Chi brings the mind into body exercise. It shapes the heart rate beneficially – its rate and blood flow - for older adults’ cardiac health and cognitive function. (5) Johnson Chiropractic urges 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 condition.
