How Chiropractic Care Can Help Your Body

By Alexis Mills

If you have a job that requires you to stand or sit for long periods of time, I'm sure you can feel the toll on your body. It could be restricted joints, could be back pain, could be tension in the shoulders, could be headaches from the stress of poor posture. It's important to realize that your body is not meant to feel this way and chiropractic care can help get your body on the right track.

Being locked int the same position for hours creates stress on the back and joints. Believe me, I spend a lot of time behind a computer screen and when I get in the groove of getting my work done, time flies. By the time I take a breath and look up, I realize that I haven't moved in a few hours. After getting up, my body feels stiff -- especially my back, since I'm constantly having to fix my posture. Over time, this creates joint dysfunction, improper joint motion, and decreased nerve flow. The fact is that I am only 25 and feel its effects; no matter what your age is, I promise that if you are sitting or standing for extended periods of time, it's effecting your body too.

How Can Chiropractic Care Help?

In order to avoid discomfort, pain and long-term effects on your health, it is essential to have, and keep, a healthy spine. Chiropractic care specifically focuses on the spine and how restoring the 24 vertebrae in your spine will help your entire nervous system. Through the chiropractic adjustment, gentle and targeted pressure will improve your body's everyday movement. By correcting the restricted joints, you will begin to experience a full range of motion and all the benefits that come with that. Imagine being able to lift up your children or grandchild without feeling that tweak in your back. 

Our spine is what supports the rest of our body whether we are sitting or standing. By keeping it healthy through stretching, exercise and chiropractic care, we are doing our part to ensure optimal performance by enabling it to move freely, and increasing nerve flow to organs, tissues and cells of the body. A chiropractor can help with this by providing insight and advice on living a healthy lifestyle.

So what does routine chiropractic care do? It provides maintenance for, and helps with: 

  • Neck pain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Leg pain
  • Foot and ankle pain
  • Arthritis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Shoulder and arm pain

By starting and continuing with chiropractic care, you can feel the benefits your body will get from this form of self-care. Stop by The Joint Chiropractic at your own convenience to see for yourself.
