How Chiropractic Works On a Job's Aches and Pains
By Sara Butler
When your job works and everything else seems OK, life can be good. But what happens when your job starts generating daily aches and pains? That question comes up for many people, as repetitive motions, bad posture, careless lifting, and stress turn into painful work-related issues.
If you are facing daily challenges with painful neck aches, headaches, backaches or sore wrists, your local chiropractor, The Joint Chiropractic, can help you find the cause and seek the solution.
Pain Changes Everything
I have seen the work/pain story repeated in all sorts of jobs. An aunt of mine owned her own hair salon, which she had built after 20 years of working in the field. The only catch was her back.
She found herself struggling to work, as pain radiated through her back. Her chiropractor helped her trace the problem to her stance. Over time, as she stood while she worked, her body tilted slightly to the left, creating the misalignment and the pain.
With her chiropractor’s help she improved her posture and shifted her stance as she kept on working and kept her studio.
Another cousin of mine was a supervisor for a road crew. He was a strong, active guy, on the job every day, working long hours. But everything changed when he found he was barely able to move when lower back pain set in. He needed immediate answers.
He chose chiropractic instead of seeing a doctor for pain pills, or electing surgery. It took some time, but with ongoing treatments, weight loss, and a reduced work schedule he regained his life.
If you, or someone in your family, is facing pain, or you just want to know what is out there, a chiropractic visit could be invaluable.
With a concentrated focus on spinal health, your chiropractor’s wellness center may offer the whole person care you and your family need now.
It starts with a spinal adjustment that evaluates the health of your spine to correct any misalignments. From there, the beneficial effects can be far-reaching, relieving back, neck or sciatica pain. Treatment could also focus on arthritis, chronic pain, knees, wrists, ankles or elbows.
Some people report feeling more energetic, enjoying better digestion and experiencing improved metabolism after chiropractic treatment.
During your visit the chiropractor will want to learn more about your schedule and review your medical history. The goal will be to seek relief for pain and keep your daily schedule going without pain medication or surgery.
