Happy New Year!
A time for resolutions! Here's a common one, get ACTIVE. Commit to an exercise program and you'll be happy you did! Find an exercise partner to encourage you when you do not want to hit the gym, yoga mat or slopes. Add it to your schedule  & prioritize it. Get a gym membership and sign up with a personal trainer or enroll in fitness classes. It will not only help you shed the holiday baking but also improve your overall health, physical AND mental. I want you to feel AMAZING in 2012.

Be PROACTIVE about your health. Another large study supporting a healthy active lifestyle. If you have any questions about starting an exercise program, about injury prevention or on achieving optimal health, make an appointment and come in to see Dr. Vermander!

_ During a time in medicine where the standard of care is most often a prescription, this is one prescription that I can get behind. EXERCISE. Yes, simple and effective, heavily researched and easy to do.

The human body is very dynamic; it is designed to move for optimal health. Our sedentary lifestyles are negatively affecting every organ, tissue and cell in our bodies. As natural health-care providers, chiropractors adjust the body to improve balance, alignment and motion for improved overall health and well-being. Exercise also helps to improve overall health and significantly lowers the risk for many diseases. Combining these two treatments is a very powerful way to improve your health.

These two links and the video above are reminders for people of all ages to GET ACTIVE at home and at work. Find an exercise partner and enjoy your new found health!
