Chiropractic Can Help You Define Well-Being
By Sandy Schroeder
In a busy world, well-being can be elusive. At times you may find it hard to define. Then it may be hard to achieve.
Just when you feel you have achieved well-being, a new mental or physical challenge pops up, and you are back to square one. Where are you now?
- Do you have small ongoing aches and pains
- Are you tired most of the time
- Do you really need to be more active
- Do you sit all day every day
Your chiropractor can help you pin down what’s going on to find lasting solutions. Stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you to get started. When you come in, be prepared to be pleasantly surprised. Wellness is a basic goal at The Joint. The doctors of chiropractic help people of all ages find solutions for pain and answers for wellness.
Solutions for Pain
A gentle targeted spinal adjustment may provide far-reaching pain relief for the neck, back, shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees or ankles.
Answers for Wellness
At the same time, you may experience other results from your adjustment as you sleep better, feel more energy, or experience more mental clarity. As you evaluate results you may choose weekly 15-minute adjustments to stay at your peak. You may also self-correct a lot of other wellness issues.
If you sit all day – Take a good look at your workplace to make sure your body is getting the best deal. Your chair should provide good back support. When sitting, the back of the knee should be about three inches from the edge of the chair. Monitors should be at eye level and feet should be flat on the floor
If your posture needs help - Looking in a three-way mirror or having someone take a picture of you will tell you what you need to correct. There should be a straight line running from the top of your head to your toes. No forward head position or slumped shoulders should be seen. If you find yourself hunched over your phone or laptop, readjust your position to keep screens at eye level.
When you need to move more – Take a good look at your schedule. Start inserting activity where it fits best. An early morning walk before breakfast, a lunchtime series of stretches, and an afternoon break outside to walk some more could deliver the recommended 30 minutes of activity per day.
