Are You Challenging Your Spine Daily?
By Sandy Schroeder
Usually, life just spins ahead as long as there are no major challenges. We seldom worry about our body or our spines. We just keep moving and hope everything works out. But all of that changes,if we get hit with pain in areas like the neck, back, sciatica, or other joints.
Then spinal health becomes an issue.
Looking closer, we may have triggered the problem, spending countless hours bent over an array of screens, or extended time sitting in front of a computer. Then we top off the spinal abuse with a complete slouch on the couch at night. Others may be challenging their spines with careless lifting, heavy household tasks or overloaded totes.
Meeting the Challenge
However the challenge plays out, The Joint Chiropractic provides a comprehensive wellness center geared to help, treating everyone from growing children to active seniors. Their chiropractors believe a healthy spine may provide the foundation for a healthier you.
If you are right on the edge of neck, back or other joint pain, or just curious about the whole process of spinal health, The Joint Chiropractic may have the answers you need.
Your spinal column consists of 24 vertebrae that make it possible for you to move, bend and twist through your day. The spine also houses the delicate nervous system that serves as command central for every tissue, organ and muscle in the body.
When two or more vertebrae fail to work correctly, a subluxation, or misalignment, is created, often generating pain, or creating loss of mobility and faulty signals between the body and the brain.
Licensed chiropractors provide regular spinal adjustments to correct the dysfunctions, which may solve pain in the neck, back, sciatica or other joints. Many people also note varying benefits, such as a more relaxed feeling, new energy, or more alertness.
Wellness in Action
Wellness is a very individual thing, but the overall goal of your chiropractor will be to seek to solve pain, help you maintain your normal schedule, and keep your spine healthy without pain medications or surgery.
If this proves to be a solution for you, you may choose to do weekly 15-minute adjustment sessions to keep the momentum going, and continue to protect your spine.
I have watched numerous neighbors, friends and co-workers take this path, counting on their chiropractors to be there when new pain hits, and steer them in the right direction for overall health and wellness.
