When Life Clouds Over, Chiropractic Helps
By Sandy Schroeder
Life is seldom simple, and sometimes it quickly becomes complicated. If you, or someone in your family, is coping with new pain or ongoing wellness issues, your local chiropractor may be able to help.
The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you offers a wellness center staffed with doctors of chiropractic who are equipped to help. They help people of all ages pursue pain relief and long-term wellness.
When Pain Strikes
Your chiropractor helps achieve pain relief for many different issues. Pain in the back, neck, knees, ankles, shoulders, elbows and wrists can be caused by joint restrictions that may respond well to chiropractic adjustments.
The adjustment is a gentle targeted movement to facilitate motion of the body’s spinal column and extremities. Relief may improve mobility, and soothe nerve irritation. At the same time it may generate new energy, more alertness or better digestion. Wellness is unique to the individual. As you evaluate your results, you can choose the next step. Weekly 15-minute adjustments may help you maintain wellness as your chiropractor monitors your progress.
Pictures of Success
I have known many family members and co-workers who have found pain relief with chiropractic help. Sometimes it started with aching low back pain that escalated. Other times, advancing arthritis settled into the knees. First they were just sore. Then they slowed everything down, and demanded complete attention. Often pain was an issue that could not be ignored.
In each case, their chiropractors helped them find the way back with ongoing treatment and advice, such as these tips from the American Chiropractic Association.
- Maintain a healthy weight
- Stay active with doctor approved exercise
- Stretch every day and take breaks while sitting
- Keep all electronic screens at eye level
- Lift smart. Never bend from the waist. Always use the legs for power
- Tote less and divide loads between both shoulders
- Choose the right shoes for each task, and opt for low heels
- Update old mattresses by choosing medium firm support
- Stop smoking to avoid loss of nutrients, oxygen and blood flow to the spine, which lead to back pain
