Chiropractic: Turning A Time Card Into Time Well Spent
By The Joint Corp.
There’s a group of people we interact closely with as much, or more, than our families. Statistically, we spend more time with our work family than we do with our loved ones. Supervisors, fellow employees and colleagues all make up the working relationships that are such a large part of who we are.
Even punching a time card in a small office, we’re typically exposed to more threats to our health than we are with the spouse and 2.2 children waiting for us at home. And we’re exposed to just as many stressors.
There are many things we can do to improve our health and work relationships, but did you ever think about your spine being one of them? The spine is your body’s command center, your first line of defense against everything. An aligned spine, one that is allowing your nervous system to communicate freely, gives you the ability to respond positively to life’s unknown events.
It comes as no surprise that health care costs have skyrocketed over the years while the quality of care received has remained the same in many cases. For companies, this cost is even greater with loss of work due to sickness and injuries -- and rising health insurance premiums to boot. Many of these injuries and illnesses are preventable. Employers are looking for ways to improve performance, decrease cost and provide an enjoyable, healthier work environment. Feeling better, functioning better, playing better, communicating better and ultimately working better often results in a greater bottom line. A greater bottom line to your company may also mean more money in your pocket as well. Not a bad exchange.
Doctors of chiropractic focus on helping their patients achieve a properly functioning spine and nervous system. When spinal joints are functioning properly, you can perform better which may give rise to the following critical benefits:
- A happier workplace environment - Chiropractic has been shown to be effective in the reduction or elimination of pain, as well as muscle tension and stress-related conditions.
- Increased performance - Chiropractic improves joint mobility, physical performance and overall function. Imagine making decisions with a clearer head.
- Fewer sick days - Chiropractic care has been shown to produce reparative and preventative benefits. Wouldn’t it be great spending your allotted personal time off at the beach instead of the doctor’s office?
- More efficient and increased productivity - Chiropractic care often results in increased daily activity and productivity.
These advantages are like gold for an employer, but also for you and your work colleagues. Imagine everyone feeling and performing at their optimal level.
The spine has an excellent musculoskeletal memory. Just like your teeth, it is recommended that you take care to provide it with proper care from a young age. Maintaining proper range of motion in the spine is paramount to controlling pain, promoting an active lifestyle and enabling you to enjoy a higher quality of life. And enjoying work more.
How Chiropractic Can Help
When one or more joints become restricted in the spine, it causes a lack of motion that, in turn, can cause an interruption of the nerve communication from the brain to the body. This interruption can affect the cells, tissues and organs of the body many times inhibiting your performance. Licensed doctors of chiropractic (such as those at The Joint Chiropractic), referred to as DCs, apply a gentle, targeted movement to the restricted joints to improve motion of the body’s spinal column and extremities, thereby enhancing nerve function. This highly controlled procedure is known as a chiropractic adjustment.
As you can see, visiting a chiropractor is more than just having your back “cracked” or “popped.” Having a spine that is free from nerve interference is your first line of defense to whatever life may throw at you. In addition, a properly functioning spine may result in better decisions, better health, better experiences, better memories and better moments of laughter and joy. If work is important to you, then these things will be important to you as well.
If an improved work environment and quality of life sounds like something you want, then make chiropractic a part of your wellness lifestyle and have your spine checked for joint dysfunctions. Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest, drug-free, non-invasive forms of health care available. Whether suffering from pain or not, keeping your body functioning at its peak may be one of the best investments you will ever make if for no other reason than you’re more productive. More and more people are experiencing the benefits of routine chiropractic care. They are learning that chiropractic makes a much better vitamin than it does an aspirin; unlike medicine that masks a problem, chiropractic aims to fix the root cause of the problem. Discover how millions of Americans have not only found relief from pain, but also a pathway to wellness and a healthier, more active lifestyle by making chiropractic part of their healthy habit regimen.
