Ottawa Chiropractic Care Encourages Exercise for a Healthy Heart and Mind

It’s February in Ottawa. It’s the month of hearts. They are everywhere! So how is your heart? Is it healthy? Is it mind-supporting? The healthy question involves 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 Ottawa chiropractic care patients whether they have back pain or neck pain or not. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider celebrates the healthy, mind-supporting heart!


The healthy heart deserves attention. No Ottawa chiropractic treatment plan is complete without it. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider encourages all our Ottawa chiropractic patients and their families and friends to give it a lot of attention. Attention via some good Ottawa cardiovascular motion is incredible for the heart…and does considerably more than just work the heart. It enhances the lives and minds of all people with a heart, all of us Ottawa folks! Exercise improves cardiovascular fitness and decreases major depressive disorders in relatively inactive adolescent/early adulthood people. (1) Of course, the trick is to create an exercise alternative that can motivate a typically sedentary depressed adolescent person to exercise regularly. (2) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider is quite aware of many Ottawa parents who get this as well as partners of Ottawa back pain sufferers seeking Ottawa chiropractic help for it! Now on the other end of the spectrum, the older folks who experience better outcomes are those who keep physically energetic, those who keep mentally active, those who maintain a positive outlook toward healthy ageing, those who involve their minds. Researchers note that these folks participate in a assortment of sedentary things (reading/crosswords) and active things (walking/helping others). Doing these activities in a social context is optimal. (3) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider takes care of many older Ottawa chiropractic patients who enjoy  life immensely and bounce back from back pain and other aches and pains more rapidly 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 discusses 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 discusses that exercise like Tai Chi brings the mind into body exercise. It affects the heart rate beneficially – its rate and blood flow - for older adults’ cardiac health and cognitive function. (5) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider urges a mix of heart-related exercise from more intense to less intense to keep the heart – the physical one and the mind-related one – in great shape.
