Chiropractic Care Can Raise Energy
By Randi Morse
Over the past six months, I've probably said the phrase, "there just aren't enough hours in the day" more times than I ever had before. It seems like I always have something to do, from caring for my family to dealing with work and college classes. Then I stopped and asked myself if I truly didn't have enough hours in the day or if I was just feeling like I didn't because I had so little energy.
Think of energy like a battery. A battery doesn't have an unlimited amount of energy. Eventually, the battery will be empty and you'll have to get a new battery. This is how our bodies work: there is only a specific amount of energy we have to expend every day, and once you run out of energy you may be able to continue to function but you definitely won't do so at peak capability.
Getting Energy Back
There are a number of ways that you can regenerate your energy. You can sleep (although who has time for that?), you can use chemicals like caffeine to help you wake up, or you can visit a chiropractor. It may seem strange to think about visiting a chiropractor to help you get your energy back, but it's true!
One reason why you may feel a lack of energy is because you may be in pain and not realizing it. It's not uncommon for someone to have ongoing, low-level pain without recognizing that they're in pain. Your body acclimates to the pain so you might not be aware of it. Even though you don't feel it, your body is still dealing with it, sapping precious energy from your battery. Chiropractic care can help alleviate the pain that your body is in, giving you back the energy that was being expended to deal with the pain.
If you have a joint restriction, your body may be losing energy. Joint restrictions can cause problems with your nervous system as the nerves go straight through the spinal column and can be pinched or restricted, thereby giving your brain mixed messages and sapping your energy. A visit to the chiropractor can help release those joint restrictions giving you back your energy.
Visit The Joint Chiropractic and talk with your chiropractor about the lack of energy you're struggling with. Your chiropractor will do a thorough examination and may be able to help give you back some of the energy that you've lost.
