Moving Can Be a Pain. Literally.

By Donna Stark

Packing the car. Pain. Unloading the car. Pain. Hefting one suitcase over the next. Pain. Carrying box after box up the 30,000 flights of stairs. Pain. Saying goodbye to your college student. Well, that’s a different kind of pain, but pain nonetheless. Unfortunately, pain, no matter its source, comes with the territory of moving your child into their college dorm. The pain in your heart may feel a little heavy, but that pain in your shoulder or back? Well, that can feel excruciating.

When the Big Move Causes You Pain

The common side effect for the millions of parents helping their child move to college is pain … shoulder pain, knee pain, upper and lower back pain, or maybe even all of the above. Everything from building a computer desk to making a bed can unexpectedly cause you to scream out in what? In pain. And when that happens, the first thing to do, after that long hug goodbye of course, is to head on in to your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic. Here’s why.

  • Reduces pain and discomfort
  • Decreases inflammation
  • Improves range of motion and flexibility
  • Corrects alignment
  • Increases muscle tone and strength
  • Improves mobility and joint function

Straight From College to Your Chiropractor

Chiropractic care provides targeted adjustments for the pain you inherited when you dropped your child off at school. It is a safe, effective, and natural approach that allows your body the chance to heal itself. It never employs the use of prescription drugs or invasive procedures and has been shown to be a more affordable and cost-effective solution for pain relief and improved health. Did you catch that? Those four words that you probably haven’t heard since the start of your child’s college search? Affordable and cost-effective. Makes this seem like an easy choice, doesn’t it? Well, at least a little bit more than finding a place to park on move-in day, but let me make it even easier for you.

With over 400 convenient locations nationwide, evening and weekend hours available, and affordable plans that will fit your budget, seeing a chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic is a lot better than looking for that elusive parking spot. You also don't need to make an appointment, so you can stop on your ride home or maybe you will want to wait until the next day, when the realization of how much extra time you have on your hands hits you as intense as the pain in your back does.

And when that happens, and it will, it’s important to take a breath, remember what it felt like for you when you first left home, and be thankful. Thankful that your child is achieving great things, thankful that you will always have their back no matter how many moves it takes, and thankful that someone at The Joint Chiropractic has yours too.
