La Grande Chiropractic Care Encourages Exercise for a Healthy Heart and Mind

It is February in La Grande. It is 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 involves its physical health for which exercise is a no-brainer. The mind-supporting question affects  its effect on the mind and cognition and vice versa. No matter the stage of life of its owner, the heart is central to the life of each of our La Grande chiropractic care patients whether they have back pain or neck pain or not. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC celebrates the healthy, mind-supporting heart!


The healthy heart needs attention. No La Grande chiropractic treatment plan is complete without it. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC encourages all our La Grande chiropractic patients and their families and friends to deliver it a lot of attention. Attention via some good La Grande cardiovascular activity is incredible for the heart…and does considerably more than just work the heart. It enriches the lives and minds of all people with a heart, all of us La Grande folks! Exercise enriches cardiovascular fitness and lessens major depressive disorders in relatively inactive adolescent/early adulthood people. (1) Of course, the trick is to create an exercise option that can inspire a naturally sedentary depressed adolescent person to exercise regularly. (2) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC knows many La Grande parents who get this as well as partners of La Grande back pain sufferers seeking La Grande chiropractic help for it! Now on the other end of the spectrum, the older folks who experience better outcomes are those who keep physically active, those who keep mentally active, those who maintain a positive attitude toward healthy ageing, those who engage their minds. Researchers report that these folks do a combination of sedentary things (reading/crosswords) and active things (walking/helping others). Doing these activities in a social context is optimal. (3) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC treats many older La Grande chiropractic patients who enjoy  life fully and recover from back pain and other aches and pains more rapidly when they are involved in life. It keeps their hearts full and their minds linked to their hearts.


Keeping the mind full and active and keeping the heart mind-related helps all ages. One report presents 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 presents that exercise like Tai Chi brings the mind into body exercise. It shapes the heart rate beneficially – its rate and blood flow - for older adults’ cardiac health and cognitive function. (5) Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC encourages a combination 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.
