If the Spine Works Well So Do We
By Sandy Schroeder
As long as everything is working, most of us power ahead. We work long hours, squeeze in all sorts of activities, and forget to eat or sleep well. Usually, this works, but sometimes our spine speaks up and we have no choice but to listen.
If you are having twinges of neck or back pain, you may be getting signals that you should check out. Early warning signals can remind us to assess our pain, and change our daily routines, putting less stress on our bodies. But if we wait, the outcome can be entirely different.
Early Warning Pain Signals
I have watched people ignore the signals and pay the price in time, effort and pain. I saw this happen to a fellow who loved his job and worked a lot of hours. He gained weight, skipped exercising, and allowed the stress of everyday problems to overload his life. Then one day everything came to a climax and he woke up to find his normal situation would not work. He could barely move and pain was overriding everything else.
Over time, as he saw his chiropractor and worked through a treatment program, his situation improved and he was able to resume most of his normal routine. Cutting back hours, losing weight, and learning to relax helped as he gained new respect for his spine.
If this sounds like an adventure that you could skip, stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you and find out what you can do to protect the health of your spine.
When you come in you will find a wellness center that is entirely different. The emphasis on spinal health begins with your first visit as your chiropractor explains how crucial the spine’s role is to our health. When you consider the spine houses the delicate nervous system that controls everything we do, it is easy to see why it really is command central.
Your chiropractor will ask about your pain, your routine, and your medical history. If a spinal adjustment seems beneficial, it will be completed in an open bay room on a comfortable table. Spinal adjustments may generate far-reaching pain relief for your neck, back, or other joint pain.
As you evaluate your results, you may want to use a weekly 15-minute adjustment session to keep the momentum going. You may also be inspired to eat healthier, upgrade workouts, and learn new stress reduction tactics.
If this approach sounds like a great way to keep your spine healthy, stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you. The Joint provides an affordable care program that eliminates the need for insurance. Extended weekend and evening hours make visits convenient, and walk-in visits are welcome.
