Almost Ready for Fall? Chiropractic Can Help
By Sandy Schroeder
Fall always seems to arrive before we are ready. If you have a growing list of things to do, The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you may be able to help. The Joint chiropractors help everyone from teens to seniors find pain relief and solve everyday wellness issues as they come up.
What’s on Your Fall List?
- Picking the right backpacks and totes
- Need to rethink everyone’s posture
- Need some new workout tips
- Not sleeping well
- Looking for wellness incentives
- Need to shed some stress
Whatever is needed, your chiropractor may be able to help. Line up your questions, and consider bringing your family in for checkups. The spine houses the central nervous system that controls everything that we do. When the spine is healthy, we are too.
A gentle targeted spinal adjustment may relieve any painful twinges that you have, and deliver more alertness, energy and better sleep. Wellness is unique to the individual. As you and your family evaluate results, you may want to use weekly 15-minute adjustments to stay at your peak as you work on individual issues like posture.
How Posture Works
Good posture keeps the body healthy lining up the spine, hips, neck and jaw with the support of the surrounding muscles. Your chiropractor can help you spot posture problems and provide exercises like this one from Harvard Health.
Use a Wall Slide with your doctor and chiropractor’s approval to relieve shoulder and back tightness.
- Line up your head, shoulders and tailbone against a wall.
- Put your hands on the wall at shoulder level with elbows bent at 45-degree angles with palms facing forward. Slowly extend arms up the wall, raising hands while keeping the tailbone, shoulders and head in touch with the wall.
- Then slowly return to your starting position.
- Repeat three to five times.
After you work on posture, you and your family may want to work on computer workstations or your use of screens at home. You may also line up practice sessions for the kids’ fall sports, and line up some new workout spots on your schedule.
As wellness energy kicks in, everything may seem a little easier. I have watched many families follow this wellness path, relying on their chiropractor to deliver the ongoing support they needed.
