When Life Gets Tough, Chiropractic Adjustments Work
By Sandy Schroeder
Sometimes life can move very fast from good to bad. One day you are working a lot, going to the gym, and thinking about your weekend plans. The next day, new pain in your neck, back, arms, hands, legs or feet can show up and demand a lot of attention.
Keeping your balance and getting back to normal is the goal, and your local chiropractor may have the best answers.
Your chiropractor helps provide pain relief for a wide range of problems, ranging from back pain, neck pain and headaches to pain in arms, hands, legs and feet. This is accomplished through the gentle application of a targeted movement to improve motion of the body’s spinal column and extremities commonly referred to as an adjustment.
How Your Chiropractor Can Help
To see how this works, visit The Joint Chiropractic in your area and talk with one of their licensed chiropractors. The Joint staff of chiropractors deal with everyone from teens to seniors on a daily basis. Nationwide there are over 370 Joint clinics all doing the same thing, helping individuals get back on track without pain medication or surgery.
When you come in, your chiropractor will ask about your pain, your normal activities and medical history. If an adjustment seems beneficial, it will be done in an open bay area on a comfortable table. Be sure to wear comfortable clothes.
Your adjustment may provide pain relief for you, along with other rather surprising benefits such as more energy, more alertness, improved sleep, digestion or metabolism.
On the Path of Wellness
Wellness is unique to the individual. As you evaluate your pain relief, you and your chiropractor can put together a plan of preventive maintenance, helping you avoid future injuries and pain.
Staying on track in the future could involve preventive maintenance such as more outdoor activities, weight loss, healthier foods, a lighter work schedule, or use of stress reduction classes and tools.
I have watched many friends and family members follow this path to wellness. Lower back pain, stiff necks, a fall, arthritic or sciatic nerve challenges, carpal tunnel syndrome and painful knees signaled the need for help. Then when they found out how helpful chiropractic could be, they designated their local chiropractor as their wellness coach and just kept returning.
If this sounds like a good resource for you, stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic in your community and find out how easy everything is. An affordable care program eliminates the need for insurance. Weekend and evening hours make visits convenient, and walk-in visits are welcome. No appointments are needed.
