Chiropractic Care Can Help Ease Teaching Pains
By Donna Stark
The chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic love to help people who are struggling with aches and pains, but there is one group in particular that they are especially proud to provide care to ... educators. And since many of our teachers are starting to slowly return to work during these difficult times, it's even more important for chiropractors to get the word out on the benefits that come from routine chiropractic care!
Physically Demanding? It Can Be!
Just because teachers aren't lifting heavy boxes or digging trenches all day, that doesn't mean their spines and other joints in the body aren't experiencing stress. For them, it's the "little" poses they hold, day in and day out that will often do them in, and if you are a teacher, you know what I mean. But if not, take a look at the following examples.
- Standing or sitting for hours at a time
- Craning their neck while writing on a projector
- Straining their back while writing on a whiteboard
- Bending down to assist young children
- Hunching over desks to help struggling students
- Carrying bags of material into their classroom from the car every day
- Grading and entering scores on the computer for hours at a time
It's easy to see why so many teachers complain of neck, back, and headache pain, but there is a lot more to add to this picture. Teachers must also deal with the mental stress involved with the job and that can easily take a toll on the body as well!
Chiropractic Care to the Rescue!
Chiropractic care is an excellent option for teachers who are looking for a safe, effective, and all-natural approach to pain relief. Getting adjusted regularly can correct joint dysfunction, alleviate pain, ease muscle tension, and restore optimal function to the body.
In addition, routine chiropractic care can also help to reduce stress, improve mental health, and support quality sleep. So, not only will teachers feel better physically, they will also feel better emotionally, and that's important when they are standing in front of a class full of adoring eyes.
