Need to Be More Alert? Chiropractic May Help
By Sandy Schroeder
In a fast moving culture, where the pace just keeps moving, you may sometimes wish for more alertness. Even after that second cup of really good coffee, sometimes it is hard to attack the morning work schedule at full speed.
There are lots of reasons for the lag. You may be sleeping poorly. You may have other concerns on your mind. Or you may simply not be performing as well as you would like to.
Latching onto mental alertness might be easier than you think with chiropractic. Many chiropractic patients say they experience a new mental clarity and better sleep after their spinal adjustments. Putting those together could make your mornings a lot clearer.
If you stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you, their chiropractors can give you a hands-on demonstration of how this works.
First, your chiropractor will want to explain the spinal health approach, which may result in better overall health for you. The spine houses the nervous system that controls everything that we do, from that first morning stretch to that last nightly yawn. The communication system that makes it all possible originates in the spine. If the spine is in perfect working order, the rest of the body usually works better too.
The Spinal Adjustment
Your chiropractor will want to know if you have pain, or any other questions. He or she will also want to know what your typical day looks like, and what your medical history is.
Then if a spinal adjustment seems beneficial, it will be done in an open bay area on a comfortable table. Be sure to wear comfortable clothes.
When you experience the results, you and your chiropractor can discuss future plans. In the many benefits, besides pain relief in areas such as the neck, back, and other joints, you may experience better sleep, a clearer mind, more energy, better digestion and/or better metabolism.
Overall, the chiropractor’s goal will be to achieve pain relief and a better overall balance, without any pain medications or surgery.
I have watched many of my friends achieve a better balance with chiropractic, including a sharper mindset. In one case, I was delighted to see how much more focused my friend was after she began chiropractic treatment. Before, she had been tired, and very slow to respond. After she got into a chiropractic groove she found a new job, lost weight, and definitely smiled a lot more.
If this seems like an approach you would like to try, stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you. Everything is easier at The Joint. An affordable care program eliminates the need for insurance. Extended evening and weekend hours make visits easy, and no appointments are needed.
