Optimal Health & Wellness Center loves hearing about our patients getting after it and living active lives. One outdoor activity we heavily encourage (should the weather permit) is paddleboarding.
If you don't believe us, we'll discuss a few reasons you should get into paddleboarding below.
Optimal Health & Wellness Center is all about providing preventive medicine that will help patients steer clear of injury, which can really throw a spoke in your routine, even your career.
Because You'll Be Outdoors
Just the act of being outside (as long as you don't get overexposed to the sun) can brighten your day, your disposition, and give you crucial health benefits. It's true, studies have shown that outdoor activities like walking in the woods help improve your blood pressure, can boost your mental health, and even decrease your risk of getting cancer.
It's Good for Your Back!
Of course, our chiropractic adjustments often play a huge role in helping maintain your body, but so does exercising. Your back muscles need to stay active -- which will help you avoid injury. Paddleboarding in particular has been shown to activate core stabilizer muscles while engaging the back simultaneously.
Paddleboarding is Fun for the Entire Family
Paddleboarding is one of those all-inclusive activities that you can take the entire family out to enjoy -- well, everyone except the baby. Actually, we're sure there's a way for that, too -- just make sure it's safe.
