Winter Conditions Chiropractic Can Cure
By Brandi Goodman
Illness becomes all-too-common during the winter season. A cold is especially usual to see. Many also experience seasonal affective disorder (known as SAD) and become depressed. You may not be getting out like you used to. Others develop aching joints that hurt constantly with the cold air and pressure. These are all winter conditions chiropractic can cure -- or at least help alleviate.
The Common Cold
The common cold often causes coughing, sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes, and sometimes a fever. A weak immune system and the cold weather all contribute to the symptoms. Get chiropractic and you could experience an improved immune system response that tackles the symptoms promptly and has you feeling better in no time.
Winter depression arises for a number of reasons. You're not as likely to get outside and enjoy the outdoors. You may be eating more than usual, turning to comfort foods on cold and dreary days. Perhaps you're stuck at home when the weather is not ideal and can't get out to see friends or family. These all lead to a bout of depression that can last all season long. Get chiropractic and ease some of your symptoms. The touch of another can be a simple factor that helps you feel relaxed. The actual relaxation that stems from a focus that is entirely on you and your needs can also help. You may also experience improved sleep thanks to the chiropractor, which is something many with depression and anxiety fail to achieve.
The cold air can cause inflammation. Your joints may feel achy and tender because of it. This increased joint stiffness can make it difficult to move around and handle the tasks you need, which can contribute to the other winter conditions mentioned. Chiropractic works to ease joint restrictions and stiffness so your body is as limber and flexible as possible. You should be able to move better and engage in physical activity with a full range of motion and no aches in place.
Chiropractic care can help cure -- or at least alleviate -- many winter conditions. Even outside of the winter months, an adjustment can help with many ailments that plague you. Seek solutions from your chiropractor at The Joint to get relief, reduce your stress, and better manage any conditions that may creep up throughout the season and thereafter.
