Moms: Celebrate Mother's Day by Gifting Yourself With Health

mother-daughter-hug-sqFrom rocking your colicky infant at 3 am to bandaging your 7-year-old’s skinned knees after taking a tumble on their bike to helping your tween prepare for their middle school dance, moms work hard. Really hard. And that doesn’t include juggling work demands, volunteering at their child’s school, or helping aging parents.

While it’s admirable that mothers demonstrate sacrificial love to their kiddos, they often backburner their own well-being. Dr. Ryan sees it every day at the practice.

‘Mom, How Are You Doing?’

“I often have young patients who are brought in by Mom or Dad, although usually, it’s the mother who brings the child in first. And as a child starts getting under care—getting adjusted—and begins to feel better and do better in their sports or whatever they were struggling with, I always try to ask moms how they’ve been doing,” said Dr. Ryan.

After all, as any mom can attest, parenting can be exhausting, with many mothers dealing with everything from back pain and substantial stress to interrupted sleep and digestive distress. While their little Energizer bunnies are always on the go, many moms seek to unwind yet still enjoy more vitality.

Put on Your Oxygen Mask First

Just as flight attendants tell passengers to put on their oxygen masks first before helping their child, Dr. Ryan encourages moms and parents to ensure they’re at their healthiest best so they can be there for their kiddos.

When the nervous system is functioning at its peak with chiropractic, moms can too. They can sleep better, have more energy (without copious amounts of coffee), and not be sidelined by aches and pains that often plague seniors.

The Importance of Modeling Healthy Habits

Every mom (and dad) wants her kids to grow up healthy and have a happy life. “But to do that, we also have to be healthy and live a happy life. And we can’t do that if we’re in pain and struggling with other health issues that we just continue to get no solid answers for,” said Dr. Ryan.

In our pill-for-every-ill society, many moms want to go a different route and take the natural path to health, which is where drug-free chiropractic care really shines. When moms, dads, and kids are under care, the entire family can be healthy. And that’s about the best gift any mother could want.

The Best Time to Start Is Now

The saying goes, “The best time to plant an oak tree was 50 years ago. The second best time is now.” This analogy holds true for health maintenance. Whether you’re a young mom in your 30s or a mother (and potentially grandma) in your 60s, it’s never too late to start caring for yourself. Addressing minor issues before they become major health concerns can save years of discomfort and potential medical interventions.

Prioritizing Mom’s Health—the Perfect Present

So this Mother’s Day, instead of buying that ostentatious, overpriced card or bouquet of flowers that will likely be in the trash can within a week or two max, consider the gift of health for the special moms in your life.
