West Des Moines Chiropractic Care Encourages Exercise for a Healthy Heart and Mind

It’s February in West Des Moines. It’s the month of hearts. You can’t escape the hearts! So how’s your heart? Is it healthy? Is it mind-supporting? The healthy question concerns its physical health for which exercise is a no-brainer. The mind-supporting question affects  its influence on the mind and cognition and vice versa. No matter the stage of life of its owner, the heart is key to the life of each of our West Des Moines chiropractic care patients whether they have back pain or neck pain or not. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa rejoices in the healthy, mind-supporting heart!


The healthy heart deserves attention. No West Des Moines chiropractic treatment plan is complete without it. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa urges all our West Des Moines chiropractic patients and their families and friends to award it a lot of attention. Attention via some good West Des Moines cardiovascular activity is amazing for the heart…and does so much more than just work the heart. It improves the lives and minds of all people with a heart, all of us West Des Moines folks! Exercise enhances cardiovascular fitness and decreases major depressive disorders in relatively inactive adolescent/early adulthood people. (1) Of course, the trick is to create an exercise option that can motivate a characteristically sedentary depressed adolescent person to exercise regularly. (2) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa knows many West Des Moines parents who can relate to this as well as partners of West Des Moines back pain sufferers turning to West Des Moines chiropractic help for it! Now on the other end of the spectrum, the older folks who do best are those who keep physically energetic, those who keep mentally active, those who keep a positive outlook toward healthy ageing, those who involve their minds. Researchers note that these folks participate in a combination of sedentary things (reading/crosswords) and active things (walking/helping others). Doing these things in a social context is best. (3) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa treats many older West Des Moines chiropractic patients who enjoy  life immensely and bounce back from back pain and other aches and pains more swiftly when they are engrossed 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 helps the mind and its cognition. It reduces the risk of age-related cognitive decline. Intense exercise may even assist in certain types of memory consolidation. (4) Another report presents 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) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa encourages 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 condition.
