Ways To Prevent Memory Loss

1. Chiropractic Adjustments. 

Chiropractic adjustments have been linked to helping create more efficient brain function as they help the central nervous system function as it should. Chiropractic adjustments correct subluxations in the spine, allowing your nervous system to function as it was intended. This increases your mental capacities like memory and creativity, and improves communication from the brain to the rest of your body.

2. Fish Oil. 

High quality fish oil supplements are a great tool to help improve memory. The DHA in fish oil is an omega-3 fatty acid that boosts brain health and function, reduces inflammation, improves vision, and can even reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke.

3. Exercise. 

Aerobic exercise is also linked to improved memory function. It improves the blood flow to your brain, as well as how your brain uses different hormones and neurotransmitters as you work out. To reap the benefits of exercise for your memory, do any type of movement (running, rowing, biking, dancing, etc.) that gets your heart rate up!

    I first visited Dr. Powers over one year ago with severe sciatic nerve pain. After 3 months of treatment the pain was entirely gone. I am now more flexible and able to do my work more effectively and with less pain. -Julie Wolfe

    Dr. Powers is absolutely the best chiropractor in the city. I used two other chiropractors before him and they could not fix my neck pain, after one visit with him, the pain was gone. My entire family sees him! -Henk deBoer

    I use to regularly have back pain by the end of the work day. Now with my monthly visit I am virtually back pain free. I can't believe I waited so long to seek chiropractic care. Thanks Dr. Powers! -David Kiepe
