When We Slow Down, Chiropractic Steps Up
By Sandy Schroeder
If pain is becoming a daily issue, or you just need an energy boost to handle fall projects, you may need some fresh answers.
The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you is a wellness resource that works for everyone. People of all ages, from teens to seniors, find pain relief and lasting solutions for wellness.
When you come in, bring your questions and get to know your chiropractor, as you learn more about natural, whole person wellness that stems from improved spinal health.
The spine houses the central nervous system that controls much of what the body does. When our brain-to-body communication works, we do too.
How Chiropractic Can Help
- Are you running on empty looking for energy
- Is stress keeping you up nights
- Do you need a better plan for exercise
- Could your whole family use a posture check
- Is it time to rethink your workplace
New energy, better sleep and more alertness may be just what you need to change the flow. Your chiropractor will use a gentle targeted spinal adjustment that may relieve pain and create an overall sense of well-being to make life easier.
Wellness is unique to the individual. As you evaluate your results you may use weekly 15-minute adjustments to stay at your peak. You may want to bring in your whole family to enjoy the benefits. Your chiropractor will monitor your progress and provide good home and work health tips like these from Harvard Health.
Outrun stress – Do whatever it takes to ditch tension. Meditate, walk it off or laugh it off over coffee with friends. When stress hangs around, sadness and depression often turn up, too.
Tote Less – Ditch those large fashion bags and only carry what you need. Choose backpacks with double padded straps and lots of compartments. Limit backpacks to 10 percent of body weight.
Lift carefully – Never bend from the waist. Always use the legs to power lifts and keep items close to the body. Never twist as you lift. If boxes or furniture are too heavy, get help.
Rethink sitting – Take a good look at your schedule to reduce the amount of time that you sit. The body is designed to move. Sitting ranks right up there with smoking as a health negative. Consider a standing workspace, walking meetings, and frequent breaks to walk or stretch.
