Don't let Your Pain Distract You From Enjoying Life
By Donna Stark
Sometimes, people get distracted by what they consider to be a disadvantage in their lives. It may be something about the way they look or their personality they don’t like. Maybe they’ve been through a situation that seems hopeless like a divorce or death of a loved one. Perhaps it may even be a physical handicap, an injury, or illness that just makes life hard. We all go through “stuff” and some of it can be downright crippling. If the feeling of pain and discomfort is your disadvantage, or if you can’t move around like you used to, come on in to The Joint Chiropractic and speak to your local chiropractor. It’s time to turn the tables on what you may consider a liability.
Turn Your Disadvantage Into an Advantage
You are more than what you think; you are more than that motionless figure sitting on the couch, watching the world pass by. Physical activity is important to you so it’s time to learn how chiropractic care can help get you moving again.
- Pain relief - Whether your pain is acute and was caused by an unexpected injury, or chronic and it’s been your constant companion for months, chiropractic care can help! A chiropractor can help identify and treat the actual source of your pain and correct any joint restrictions of the spine. The biggest benefit of the pain relief is that it is completely drug-free, so it won’t have the many undesirable and unwanted side effects that typically come with prescribed pain medications.
- Increased balance and coordination - Chiropractic adjustments help with age-related issues that can affect a patient’s balance and coordination, such as osteoporosis and arthritis. A chiropractor can improve this deficiency by properly aligning the spine, muscles, and joints in a patient’s body.
- Improved range of motion - Unfortunately, many people may feel pain or discomfort when bending over or reaching for items, but chiropractic care has consistently been shown to increase a patient’s range of motion in the spine, arms, and legs. With an improved range of motion, patients can get back to taking care of their basic needs, enjoying their hobbies and family more, and living the life they want without pain.
- Injury treatment - Injuries are an unfortunate and often inescapable aspect of life, and recovering from them quickly and completely is critical to your quality of life. Chiropractic care helps patients through this recovery process in a safe and effective way, completely avoiding the use of medications and invasive treatments. When the spine is properly aligned, the injured tendons and muscles are able to heal correctly.
We all have things that can feel like disadvantages from one day to the next, but just because you have what you feel is a limitation, doesn’t mean you’re supposed to sit back and settle. Come on in to The Joint Chiropractic for help!
