Use or lose your health benefits

As 2014 draws to a close, it’s a fabulous time to get a head start on your health goals and dreams for 2015.  In my career, I have seen that the only investment that pays true dividends is investing in yourself and your health.  Spinal conditions affecting nerves are responsible for hip, back, neck and other problems that get in the way of your health goals, whether it is taking a long walk or running an entire 26.2 mile marathon.  Use this time of year to jump start your health, by stacking your 2014 and 2015 benefits.
I invite you to:
1.   Use any remaining insurance benefits before the end of 2014. Do not leave this investment untapped; in most cases, you either use it or lose it. This includes Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs), for those of you who have them.
2.   Money spent on your health to decrease stress and pain will increase your productivity and help you to think more clearly.
3.   Fast. Not from food, but from television and other media. The negativity weighs people down and pulls you into becoming less productive.
4.   Learn in areas that excite you, especially in health and spirituality… it will energize you!
5.   Exercise to dissipate stress and increase productivity.
With the holidays fast approaching, remember to give yourself and your family the best gift, the gift of health first!  
Thank you for allowing us to be your chiropractic family and let’s finish 2014 in a strong, healthy and productive way!

Winning Your Age Category in a 5k or In The Activities of Life You Love


Richard's Run, a 5k in Hohokus, New Jersey, had a great field of athletes turn out Sunday October 5th. More than 35 of them were 100 Year Lifestyle team members.  The team is made up of people who utilize Plasker Chiropractic, a 100 Year Lifestyle affiliate health care facility in Montvale and Paramus, New Jersey.  Their office helps elite and recreational athletes alike to be at peak performance.  The age of team members ranged from 9-76 years old, all of whom are living the 100 Year Lifestyle.  Some of our members walked the 3.1 mile course and others like Efriam Shaw and Evan Flach finished 1st in their respective age category.
