Let Chiropractic Take the Pain Out of Your Day
By Sandy Schroeder
Little things like gardening or walking the dog can quickly become difficult if you are having joint pain in your ankles or knees. If joint pain persists, the situation may become more critical as you struggle with daily tasks. You may use over-the-counter pain pills or prescriptions, ice, or heat to ease the pain, but you may still be looking for solutions.
How Your Chiropractor Can Help
The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you is well equipped to help. The Joint doctors of chiropractic help people of all ages find pain relief in the neck, back, knees, ankles, shoulders, elbows and wrists. The pain can be caused by joint restrictions that respond well to spinal adjustments.
An adjustment is a gentle targeted movement to improve the motion of the body’s spinal column and extremities. You may experience pain relief and improved mobility. You may also feel more alert and energetic.
Wellness is unique to the individual. As you evaluate the results, you may choose to use weekly 15-minute adjustments to stay ahead of the problem. Your chiropractor will work with you helping you spot potential issues and follow tips like these from the American Chiropractic Association.
- Maintain a normal weight with a healthy diet
- Lower stress with meditation, tai chi or yoga
- Keep moving with low impact doctor-approved activities, such as swimming
- Rest well with 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night
- Wear low-heeled shoes with good support
- Tote as little as possible and distribute weight to both shoulders
I have watched many friends and co-workers find relief from joint pain with chiropractic treatment and good prevention advice. Some had sore knees or ankles that made every day a challenge. Others encountered sore backs, or stiff necks. Their chiropractors helped them work through the issues and move ahead with their lives. Many of those people brought in their families, and kept right on going, relying on their chiropractors to provide ongoing support.
