Moving with Pain? Chiropractic Can Help
By Sandy Schroeder
Sometimes life just will not wait. You may have a painful upper or lower back, shoulders, knees or ankles, but life goes on and so do you. If you can relate, you may need to get some very good hands-on assistance with chiropractic help.
The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you helps all sorts of people find natural pain relief every day with a drug-free approach to wellness.
Talk about Your Pain
When you come in your chiropractor will ask about your pain, your daily routine, and health history. A gentle targeted spinal adjustment may be the answer to far-reaching pain relief and overall wellness without the risk of surgery or potentially addictive opioid prescription medications.
How Your Spine Works
Your spinal column has 24 vertebrae that allow your body to twist, turn and bend through the day. The spine also houses the delicate nervous system that coordinates every organ, tissue and muscle in the body.
If two or more vertebrae are not interacting correctly you may have a subluxation (joint restriction) that can lead to pain and eventually create issues with mobility. At first you may not notice the joint dysfunction, but over time it can create symptoms in other parts of the body as pain signals a problem. Wherever you are with discomfort or more serious issues of pain, it's time to turn things around.
You and your chiropractor may become a team to identify pain and create a new approach of gentle spinal adjustments with ongoing monitoring. At the same time, the goal will be for you to stay active and keep moving.
Working on Wellness
Weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments may prove to be the perfect platform to maintain pain relief and work on related issues such as extra weight, too much stress, or damaging habits such as poor posture and too much sitting at work and at home.
I have watched many friends, co-workers and relatives discover the benefits of natural pain relief with chiropractic assistance. They started with lower back pain, or painful shoulders and then moved ahead with new tips on stress, sleep or sports performance. Their chiropractor monitored their progress and often caught small changes before they became big issues.
