When the Neck or Back Complain, It's Time to Listen
By Sandy Schroeder
Most of us are too busy. We are too busy at work and at home. Sometimes we are even too busy to listen to our bodies, but those “too busy” excuses quickly drop away when pain settles in.
If you have twinges of neck, back or other joint pain, check them out. Many of us push our bodies too far, getting everything done one way or another. Hot showers and over-the-counter medications fill in the gaps as we power ahead. When our cars stop or our computers crash we take action right away.
Do the same for yourself. Stop in at The Joint Chiropractic clinic to find out what is going on. The Joint’s licensed chiropractors are geared to find pain relief and achieve lasting wellness.
Getting Back on Track
When you come in, your chiropractor will ask about your pain, lifestyle and health history. The health of the spine is the focus, and a gentle targeted spinal adjustment may provide the answers with pain relief and an overall sense of well-being. When the spine works better, often we do too. Keeping that brain-to-body network in peak condition may help with a whole range of painful issues.
Your chiropractor may be able to help with lower or upper back pain, neck pain, tension and migraine headaches, shoulder and elbow pain, knee, foot and ankle pain, sciatica, fibromyalgia and chronic injuries.
Weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments may be the next step to stay at your peak. At the same time, you may want to take a good look at your schedule to find more time for the things that count the most. Finding ways to be active with your family, contain work hours, or siphon off stress can be the keys to ongoing wellness.
Family fitness – Rediscover favorite activities and share them with your family. Shooting hoops, fishing, biking or hiking could keep everybody involved.
Schedule shakeups – Building in breaks for afternoons off and weekends away may make your job work better.
Stress absorbers – Daily walking, running or jogging can help you think and sleep better too. Time for hobbies in the evening or on weekends help to mellow everything out. Breaks in the day for music, books, or coffee with friends can change the pace and ease the tension.
Stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you to get started. Find out more about affordable personal healthcare plans that eliminate the hassle of insurance. Enjoy convenient weekend and evening hours, and walk-in visits. No appointments are needed.
