By Sandy Schroeder
Do your mornings start with a little pain, or a lot? Some days the sun is shining and your body feels OK. Other mornings, soreness, and stiffness seem to have gained power overnight, and it takes a real push to get going and get into the day.
If you find yourself sorting out this pain puzzle, day after day, with nagging pain in the neck, back, or other parts of the body, you might want to find out more about The Joint Chiropractic’s approach to pain relief.
Instead of gulping a pain pill with breakfast, taking a hot shower and powering ahead to deal with the day, stop in at The Joint, and find out why a majority of Americans are making chiropractic their first choice for pain, according to the American Chiropractic Association.
How Chiropractic May Help
Focusing on the spine, which houses the delicate nervous system that controls and coordinates every muscle, tissue and organ of the body, your chiropractor will start with a spinal adjustment to correct any misalignments, known as subluxations, that you may have.
When two or more of the vertebrae in your spine are not functioning together properly, you may feel pain. These misalignments can lead to more miscommunications between the body and the brain. Your chiropractor will be seeking to help you achieve relief without resorting to pain medication.
In your first visit, your chiropractor will also want to know about your daily routines at home, and at work, coupled with a review of your medical history.
Together the two of you can put together a plan of attack that may become weekly 15-minute chiropractic sessions in which you also work on other issues, such as workplace posture, stress or weight. Over a period of time, you may also feel new energy, better digestion or improved metabolism.
I have watched an assortment of people with a variety of pain issues use chiropractic as a natural, drug-free approach to the problem. They sorted through their pain and counted on their chiropractor to be there for any future problems.
Often they brought their families in, and set up individual health profiles, creating an ongoing wellness resource for future sports injuries for their kids, or arthritis flare-ups for their parents.
Wherever you are in dealing with daily pain, chiropractic may be the answer to get back on track.
