Is Your Body Overworked? Ask Your Chiropractor
How do you think you measure up in body health? Are you constantly running into painful challenges?
For many of us painful twinges are an ongoing game. One morning it’s a stiff neck. The next it’s painful wrists or a sore back. Most of us power on through, thinking we will deal with it later.
But later gets postponed, and sometimes small twinges become big issues and then we need much more help.
If this sounds all too familiar to you, you might need to see your doctor and your chiropractor to find out if your body is overworked and if so, what should happen next.
We live in an age of preventive medicine, and the chiropractor can be a valuable resource in solving health problems early. Dr. Karen Erickson of the American Chiropractic Association emphasized this recently as she spoke about using chiropractic services. She pointed out the spine really is like a central computer in the body that houses our nervous system. By keeping the spine and joints in good functioning order, we can regulate muscle functions and reduce localized pain and inflammation. See your chiropractor and find out more.
See Your Chiropractor for a Checkup
Your chiropractor is well qualified to tell you if your body is overworked and what to do about the trouble spots. Your chiropractor has lots of experience in body pain and can help develop an overall treatment and exercise plan, monitoring it as your pain improves.
In the first visit the chiropractor will use a spinal manipulation to evaluate the health of your spine and talk about any pain that you are having. There will also be a complete medical history review followed by a discussion of daily activities. From there your chiropractor may want to talk about posture, healthy diets, weight loss, relaxation exercises to reduce stress, and ongoing exercise like daily walking or swimming.
Many people turn chiropractic visits into regular health checkpoints. They maintain active schedules and enjoy busy lives. But whenever pain strikes, they turn to their chiropractor to find good solutions. As their chiropractors help them stay healthy the emphasis is on natural care with no medications or surgery.
I have known a variety of people who have discovered their bodies were overworked. My hairdresser, my aunt and two cousins were all leading busy lives. But joint pain got their full attention when it showed up in a variety of painful situations. It took a little time to find good solutions. Weight loss, relaxation, and new exercise programs all came into play as they found their way back with the help of their chiropractors.
If this sounds like a plan you would like to live with make an appointment and find out more.
