Managing Pain With Chiropractic Care and New Habits

By Donna Stark

It may happen sooner than later for you. The pain and stiffness, the natural wearing down of your discs and joints ... there are many beautiful things that occur during the aging process, but these aren't any of them! And unfortunately, the discomfort you feel is only part of the problem. You may also be limited with what you can do, which means you will definitely be limited with what you can enjoy in life. So, what can you do if you are struggling with back or neck pain? Take a look at the following tips from your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic.

Get Adjusted

There are many ways you can benefit from routine chiropractic care, but here are some of the top reasons how it can help the pain in your back and neck.

  • Targets the underlying source of your pain
  • Corrects joint dysfunction and alignment issues
  • Removes nerve interference
  • Soothes irritated nerves
  • Eases tension, stiffness, and stress

Rearrange Your Home

Until you can start reducing and managing your pain better, you may want to switch some things around in your home. Objects that are stored on high shelves or underneath counters can be difficult to reach so take the time (and ask for help if you need it) to make your home more user-friendly. You want easy access to the items you use most often, so be sure to place them within reach. Also, make sure your stair railings are secure and if needed, install new ones around the home.

Change Your Diet

Consuming a healthier diet and drinking the recommended amount of water can help decrease inflammation and reduce pain. Choose foods that are anti-inflammatory, such as berries, fatty fish, broccoli, avocado, green leafy vegetables, nuts, and turmeric. You can always look online for more ideas and to find delicious meal plans that will incorporate these foods.

Add Movement to Your Day

Your pain may keep you from wanting to engage in an intense workout, but that doesn't mean you should avoid movement. Light stretches and moderate exercise could be exactly what your body needs ... just be sure to check with your chiropractor before you start if you have any concerns. Stretching and low-impact exercises can reduce pain by improving flexibility and strengthening the muscles around the area that is hurting.
