October is National Chiropractic Month!
This month we are celebrating with a fantastic product of the month (head back to our page tomorrow for the details) and tips for keeping your body health inside and out.
We are starting off with tips for those working from home.
You've heard it from Dr. Dale before, good posture makes a difference.
Make your workstation a sit/stand station by simply standing up every 20 minutes and take a break
to stretch and move.
1. Stand up and move your legs up and down like you are walking in place.
2. Look at an object that is more than 20 feet away for 20 seconds.
3. Gently shake your hands, wrists and elbows while gently rolling your shoulders up, back and down.
4. Take a slow, deep breath in to improve your posture and smile, then slowly exhale.
5. Sit down, refreshed, in a good posture. You are ready to get back to work!
Cal - 6 + Mg
Did you know? About 99% of the calcium and 60% of the magnesium in an average adult's body is contained within our bones, leaving most of us with only 1% of our total body calcium and 40% of our total body magnesium present in our soft tissue to maintain vital functions like:
▪️ Nerve Conduction
▪️ Muscle Contraction
▪️ Energy Regulation
▪️ Blood Clotting
▪️ Proper Balance
▪️ Function of Hormones
Thanks to this month's 15% discount on our Calcium + Magnesium Blend from Douglas Laboratories, you don't have to find out what happens when you are getting enough of these critical nutrients.
*Offer available until October 31, 2020 at Rollette Chiropractic Center.
