Stop Ignoring Your Spine!
By Donna Stark
Do you approach your health with the attitude of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it?" Do you tend to ignore the symptoms of minor health issues? The truth is, we all do that to some degree. We'll tell ourselves that it really isn't that bad and we'll give the problem until the morning or the next day to feel better. Sometimes, that kind of attitude works out for us in the end, but other times? Well, those times are just a recipe for disaster. So, if you are ignoring mild pain issues or ignoring the health of your spine all together, you may want to reconsider and head on in to see your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic instead.
Don't Ignore Your Spine
I heard a saying the other day that went something along the lines of "if your spine was on your face, you would take better care of it." Think about that for a moment. Do you think it's true? If so, keep on imagining that it really is on your face and treat it better with the following tips and suggestions.
- Maintain good posture - Good posture shouldn't only occur when you are sitting. You need to be mindful of it when you are standing and sleeping too! Maintaining good posture will help to keep your bones and joints in correct alignment and decrease the risk of pain and joint dysfunction. Your chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic can help guide you with the correct positions to use and will provide adjustments that actually encourage better posture!
- Stretch and strengthen - Stretching and strengthening your back and core muscles are important when it comes to taking care of your spine. Stretching helps to alleviate pain, reduce tension, and keep the muscles surrounding the spine flexible and strong. Strengthening your core muscles is important because they support the spine and take the pressure off your lower back. Your local chiropractor can help you decide which stretching and strengthening exercises are the best for your particular situation.
- Get adjusted - You may not believe this because it is so common, but pain isn't normal! It's your body's way of communicating to you that something isn't right and that there is an issue that needs to be addressed sooner than later. Fortunately, your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic are nearby and they can help. With precise adjustments that target the true source of your pain, you can expect to find relief in no time at all!
