The Joint Chiropractic Opens Office in Northridge
-Inactivity and Work From Home Settings Raise Spine Health Concerns-
NORTHRIDGE, Calif. (January 6, 2020) – Since the onset of COVID-19, spine health has become concerning due to lack of inactivity and poor work from home settings. Did you know that chiropractic can help with pain relief and move patients toward a healthier lifestyle? Locally, The Joint Chiropractic – Northridge is now open, offering accessible and convenient chiropractic services. The new office is located at 19515 Nordhoff Street.
Americans are now spending more time seated than ever before, wreaking havoc on their spines. The body is made to move and as the nation’s largest provider of chiropractic care, The Joint is celebrating with a grand opening from now until Jan. 31, including:
- A free consultation, exam and adjustment for new patients by texting “NORTHRIDGEVIP" to 56468
- Door prizes, games and refreshments
- Enter to win an Electra Beach Cruiser bike and an Xbox gaming console
After the grand opening events, new patients receive their initial visit for $29.00, which includes the consultation, exam and adjustment.
“Spending more time at home can easily lead to an unhealthy, sedentary lifestyle, which can add negative stress to the spine and create dysfunction, such as improper joint motion and altered nerve flow to and from the body,” said Dr. Angelica Malek, , D.C. at The Joint Chiropractic – Northridge.
According to Dr. Malek, if you find yourself sitting excessively, keep these tips in mind:
- Make sure to get off the couch, or out of the bed, because there is a lack of back support,
- Sit at a desk or at the kitchen table, so you can put emphasis on your posture and sit up straight,
- And finally, set a reminder to get up throughout the day and move
According to the Centers for Disease Control, only about 25 percent of Americans were getting their recommended daily exercise even before the pandemic. The less people move, the higher the risk to their health and wellness and the weaker their muscles get. As back muscles weaken, they cannot support the spine as they should. A sedentary lifestyle has been linked to weight gain, weaker bones, increased risk of chronic diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease, and increased inflammation.
Millions of Americans have found relief from pain due to the benefits of chiropractic's natural, drug-free approach to healthcare. The Joint Chiropractic is known for its conducive retail setting and concierge-style services. For patients, that means no-appointments, no-insurance hassles, affordable chiropractic care and accommodating hours of operations, including evenings and weekends.
