Chiropractic Puts Pain in Its Place
By Sandy Schroeder
It’s hard to function when pain undercuts your day. If you have painful knees, sore shoulders, or an aching back, you know how pain interacts with your life.
Heat, ice, and over-the-counter pills or pain prescriptions show up to help. But nothing quite works to erase the pain. Often weekend plans are postponed, and evenings at home are cut short.
Seeing Your Chiropractor
Breaking away from pain can start with a visit to The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you. The Joint’s doctors of chiropractic help people of all ages seek pain relief and wellness every day.
Pain relief may be achieved in the back, neck, knees, ankles, shoulders, elbows or wrists. The pain may be caused by joint restrictions, and may be relieved with chiropractic adjustments.
If a spinal adjustment seems beneficial, it will be done in an open bay area on a comfortable table. The adjustment is accomplished through the gentle application of a targeted movement to improve motion of the body’s spinal column and extremities.
Relief may ease nerve irritation, and improve movement. You may feel as if you have been set free. As you assess the results, you may want to consider weekly 15-minute adjustments to stay in shape. Your chiropractor can monitor your progress and suggest more ways to stay healthy.
I have had many friends and relatives who found pain relief with chiropractic help. A painful back or sore neck and shoulders made work difficult. But their chiropractors helped them find the way back with adjustments and ongoing treatment. Often they were dealing with careers and family. Chiropractic treatment helped them stay in the game and thrive.
If you need help to escape pain, or just want to know how to keep your back healthy, the American Chiropractic Association’s tips may help.
- Eat healthy and stay trim
- Keep moving with doctor-approved activities
- Stretch and warm up before sports, gardening or workouts
- Improve posture and maintain it at work and at home
- Replace lumpy mattresses with medium firm support
- Stop smoking to avoid loss of blood flow, oxygen and nutrients to the spine
- Lift carefully. Never twist. Keep objects close to you and power the lift with your legs
