How to Balance Your Work and Your Wellness
By Sandy Schroeder
It’s hard to get it right. Work and wellness seem to call for opposing actions. Work often demands long hours and total focus while wellness also demands time every day, and commitment.
But when we actually balance the two, the results can be amazing. I have watched an assortment of friends and family make the effort and succeed. Many had difficult, demanding jobs, which frequently put wellness on the backburner. Then one painful issue after another began showing up and demanding attention.
Chiropractic Worked Best
When they turned to their local chiropractor for answers to pain, they also learned a lot about overall health and wellness.
If this sounds like an approach that might work for you, stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic in your area and take a closer look.
Your chiropractor helps achieve pain relief for a wide range of problems. Pain in the back, neck, knees, ankles, shoulders, elbows and wrists can all be caused by joint restrictions and often respond well to chiropractic adjustments.
Wherever your pain is, and whatever your wellness issues are, this is the time to talk about it. Your chiropractor will ask about your pain, your daily routine, and your medical history.
As you assess the results of your chiropractic adjustment, you may find weekly visits with 15-minute adjustments work. As pain recedes, there is room for more wellness efforts. Weekly visits also keep you in touch with your chiropractor so that new developments may be caught before they become major.
Bringing the whole family in to set up health profiles may be another logical step. Your spouse, teens or seniors can benefit from ongoing checks and prompt support if pain or injuries occur.
