Amelia Chiropractic Clinic has confidence that including Fernandina Beach exercise to your daily life is an advantageous behavior that ultimately enhances your life. Let’s get moving!


Culture can be supportive of physical activity…or not. Researchers evaluated various motivators for physical activity and exercise. Since being physically active is a result of self-determination, they detailed the mix of autonomy, competence, ego, task, and relatedness of these in the motivation to exercise. American subjects were more autonomous, task oriented, and physically active than Turkish subjects reminding researchers and ultimately us clinicians to tailor exercise to the patient and his/her influences. (1) Share with Amelia Chiropractic Clinic what motivates you! Simple? Fast? At-home? At-gym? Maybe some mindfulness? To boost the exercise effort, including mindfulness appears promising. Researchers found though that people have misconceptions or no concept of what mindfulness is or how it is helpful to mental and overall health. A recent study looked at the effectiveness of physical activity and mindfulness activities in preventing mental health issues and concluded that it held promise. (2) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic appreciates those types of benefits!


A pill maybe?! None of us would confess to wanting a pill to be physically fit…or would we? Of course not! As the pharmacological world looks for drugs to enhance cognitive function in the aging folks, researchers have also described nutrition, diet, probiotics, cognitive training, and physical activity, exercise, even dancing – ballroom, aerobic and Latin - as being valuable. (3) Significant motivators can be healthy lifestyle behaviors mixed with chiropractic care. Treating and easing chronic pain – associated with reduced brain gray matter and impaired cognitive function - was found to restore normal brain function. (4) That’s what Amelia Chiropractic Clinic does: treat chronic pain with chiropractic care incorporating spinal manipulation.


Curious researchers tackled the question of older adults’ goals, motivations, and self-determination motivators to follow a healthy lifestyle and do things to support that lifestyle like exercise and eating well. Factors like personality and goal-setting habits were proposed as influencers. (5) Even in kids, researchers observed that behaviors like breakfast eating, exercise, and sleep patterns influenced their healthy lifestyle. Not having breakfast in the morning – 11% of kids in a recent study did this – was linked to sleep duration, bedtime, and physical activity. 9.5% of kids said they had poor sleep. 24.9% did not sleep more than the suggested 9 hours. Girls were less physically active. Sad news: Such less-than-healthy habits impaired children’s hand-eye coordination and attention. Positive] news: Better sleep quality bettered their reaction time in a visual attention exam. (6) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic is here to help you make better choices, temper expectations, and make beneficial healthy lifestyle goals.
