Are You Setting Yourself Up for Future Joint Pain?
By Sandy Schroeder
Life plays out for all of us, one day at a time. But things we do to (and for) our spine and related joints can make a huge difference in how life rolls for us.
I have seen two busy relatives brought to a standstill by lower back pain. In both cases, they were working long hours, and leading stressful lives, until pain shut them down. One had to give up smoking, as he learned how hard it can be on the back. The other reduced his stress at work.
A friend of mine hit a major glitch in her career once her knees started dictating the day. Losing weight, and learning how to keep moving, helped her regain her life and her pace.
How Your Chiropractor Can Help
Whether you are feeling painful twinges in your joints or simply hoping to stay healthy and avoid the whole issue, a visit to The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you could be an invaluable choice.
The Joint’s staff of licensed chiropractors are well equipped to assess your pain and provide preventive maintenance advice. When you come in, bring your issues and concerns, as you get to know your chiropractor. He or she will review your medical history, ask about your activities, and discuss any pain that you are having.
Pain in the back, neck, knees, arms, legs or feet can be caused by joint restrictions and they may respond well to chiropractic adjustments. If a spinal adjustment seems beneficial, it will be done in an open bay area on a special table. The adjustment is accomplished through the gentle application of a targeted movement to improve motion of the body’s spinal column and extremities. Relief may be achieved, thereby improving mobility, range of motion, and reducing nerve irritation.
On the Wellness Path
When the spine works better, the whole body may respond. Along with pain relief, you may experience a range of surprise benefits such as better sleep, more energy, renewed mental clarity or improved metabolism. Your results are unique to you. As you assess them, you may be inspired to pursue additional wellness tactics as you eat healthier, try new exercises or sports, change your work patterns, or learn how to improve your posture.
