Do You Find Your Office Job to be Painful?
By Tom Herrin
Office jobs can be great. With today’s technological advances, many more people are working in what used to be considered office jobs. The pay is usually good, the climate is controlled, you are often seated comfortably. The problem may be that all these good things leave us without much outlet such as regular exercise. We may not be moving around much and end up with a lot of stiffness. Our bodies are designed to move, and without that movement, our muscles and joints begin to suffer from lack of constructive movement. The result is, often, aches and pains that we may attribute to nature taking its course. Chiropractic may give you a new perspective and a new lifestyle.
The Problem With Sitting
When we move, our muscles are experiencing their intended function. Blood flow moves oxygen and removes waste. Properly working muscles usually support bones and joints. When we have prolonged time in only a few positions, we become stiff and our joints, along with muscles, suffer from lack of regular movement. Vertebrae tend to move and shift away from their designed position. Pretty soon, new pressure is placed on the nerves that travel through the spine. Sometimes the pain comes on all at once, but many times the pain just creeps up on us until it becomes nagging. That little ache becomes an unbearable pain, preventing you from carrying on normal activity without misery. Chiropractic may be as far as you need to go to receive relief.
The Chiropractic Adjustment
If you have never been to a chiropractor, you may be very surprised at how much relief can be provided by an adjustment. You will probably find yourself commenting on why you waited so long. Your chiropractor can adjust, or move, your vertebrae back into place with some simple manipulation. If you have had your problem for a while, it may take several visits for your body to allow itself to stay in the proper place. Your muscles and other soft tissue will slowly take their proper place and stay that way.
Feeling Good Can Be Habit-Forming
Once you begin to receive treatment, your chiropractor may give you some exercises you can do to improve your overall health. It will take some effort to compensate for those hours you may spend in that job that requires so much sitting or remaining in one place. The feeling of improved health and freedom from pain will be well worth it, and there is no medication involved. At The Joint Chiropractic, they have plans designed with your needs in mind.
