Frustrated with Pain? Your Chiropractor Can Help
By Sandy Schroeder
When pain strikes, everything else takes a back seat. When pain starts calling the shots from morning to night, you need answers, and chiropractic may have them.
Chiropractic focuses on spinal health to improve health, wellness and fitness throughout the body. Stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you to assess your pain and seek the best solutions. The Joint’s licensed chiropractors help people of all ages find answers to pain every day.
When you come in your chiropractor will want to hear about your pain, lifestyle and health history. A gentle targeted spinal adjustment may provide pain relief and a fresh sense of well-being. Many people report better sleep, less stress and more energy, too.
On the Wellness Path
Weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments may turn out to be the best way to stay pain-free. At the same time, your chiropractor can monitor your progress and suggest good ways to keep moving. Wherever the pain is, continuing to move and stay active will help you move beyond it. With your doctor and your chiropractor’s approval you may find that daily walking, simple stretching exercises, and low key strength exercises may help. At the same time, your chiropractor may have some good suggestions for posture, stress relief, lifting and toting, and sitting at work.
Workplace sitting – Learning how to sit up straight to protect the spine can reduce future back pain. Choose a chair that gives good back and shoulder support, make sure your feet are flat on the floor, and the top of your monitor is at eye level. Avoid hunching over the keyboard and jutting the head forward. Take frequent breaks and consider an adjustable platform so you can sit or stand while you work.
Ongoing stress relief – Stress can magnify pain. Learning how to shed it as fast as it shows up may make a big difference. Moving meditations with walking, yoga or tai chi, daily fitness routines, outdoor time, music, breathing exercises and hobbies can all relieve tension.
Lifting and toting – Knowing how to safely lift and carry everything in your daily efforts can protect the body from more pain. Always lift with the legs. Never bend from the waist. Never twist as you lift. Keep objects and kids close to you as you squat and power the lift with your legs.
