Chiropractic Help for Range of Motion
By Sara Butler
Your body was made to move. But lifestyle choices, aging, and injuries can reduce your body's natural range of motion and lead to pain and discomfort on a daily basis as well as difficulty moving through your day. Flexibility and ease of motion are crucial to your overall health and wellness no matter how old you are. Here's what you need to know about the role range of motion plays in your life and how the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic can help you to get moving.
Your Daily Activities
The range of motion in your joints impacts almost everything you do over the course of the day, from brushing your teeth to parking your car at the grocery store. You may not realize how often you use your joints such as your elbows, wrists, shoulders, or spine to do even the simplest of your daily activities. Well, until your range of motion makes it apparent, anyway.
An injury or condition that impacts the range of motion in the joints can cause pain and discomfort, making even the easiest tasks in your day more challenging.
Your Spine's Range of Motion
The chiropractors at The Joint want to ensure your spine is free of joint restrictions that can impact its range of motion. You may be surprised to learn that range of motion issues with the spine can trickle down to other parts of your body to cause dysfunctions. It's true! As the range of motion in the spine decreases, you may also find that you encounter issues with headaches, back pain, and even problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
Once your spine is free of joint restrictions through targeted chiropractic treatments, you'll notice that moving during everyday tasks is easier and less uncomfortable.
Let the Chiropractors Help
At The Joint, the chiropractors want to work with you to help increase your body's range of motion and flexibility. They know that increasing your range of motion can help to improve your overall health and wellness, helping your whole body to work more optimally.
Aside from hands-on chiropractic adjustments, the chiropractors may also suggest stretching routines and muscle strengthening exercises to help get you moving again. Once your range of motion is restored, you can get back to your everyday life free from pain.
