Is Your Spine Up to Par?
By Sandy Schroeder
It’s easy to assume that the spine is fine until painful twinges begin to show up. If you are having pain, your spine could be sending distress messages that need to be addressed now.
The spine houses the delicate nervous system that controls everything that we do. When that communication system breaks down, the sooner it is fixed, the better.
The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you specializes in spinal health and wellness. The Joint is staffed with healthcare professionals who treat everyone from teens to seniors, seeking to relieve pain without pain medications or surgery.
More and more people are turning to chiropractic as the danger of opioid prescription medication continues to spread in our communities and neighborhoods. According to the American Chiropractic Association, chiropractic is now the first choice for most Americans seeking relief from pain.
How It Works
When you come in, your chiropractor will explain how a healthy spine may lead to a healthier you. He or she will ask about your pain, you normal routine, and your medical history.
Then, if it seems beneficial, a spinal adjustment will be done on a special table in an open bay area. Be sure to wear comfortable clothes.
The spinal adjustment may generate far-reaching pain relief in the back, neck, sciatic nerve, or other joints. At the same time, you may experience more energy, more mental clarity, or a more relaxed sense of well-being. Or you may note better digestion and improved metabolism.
The Path of Wellness
Wellness is a very individual thing. As you assess your pain relief, you may choose to do weekly 15-minute adjustments to maintain the momentum. At the same time, you may be motivated to pursue more health and wellness goals, seeking to lose weight, be more active, or learn new stress-reducing tactics.
I have watched many friends, family members and co-workers use chiropractic to improve their spinal health, relieve pain, and keep their schedules functioning. Often, it started with one problem, such as lower back pain or nagging neck pain. But then, chiropractic became an ongoing health monitoring system that helped the individual maintain the spine and correct small problems before they could settle in.
