When You Get Hung Up, Your Chiropractor Can Help
By Sandy Schroeder
Getting hung up physically can happen in many ways, from an ongoing backache to painful knees, shoulders or ankles. Wherever the pain is, your chiropractor will seek to help you find pain relief without using pain medications or surgery.
Stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you and get started. The Joint’s experienced staff of licensed chiropractors treat everyone from teens to seniors and solve all sorts of painful issues.
Seeing Your Chiropractor
When you come in, your chiropractor will ask about your pain, your normal routines, and your medical history.
If a spinal adjustment seems beneficial, it will be done on a comfortable table in an open bay area. Far-reaching pain relief may be reached in the neck, back, sciatic nerve, or other joints. At the same time, extra benefits may occur, such as more energy, more alertness, or better sleep.
Here's a closer look at painful spots that your chiropractor deals with every day.
Knees – The knees support all of our weight, allowing us to bend and twist as we stand up, sit down, or walk. Over time, arthritis and injuries can take their toll, and the cartilage that forms a cushion for the bone wears away, creating bone-on-bone agony.
Lower Back – Careless lifting, endless sitting sessions with slumped posture, extra weight, and ongoing stress can all conspire to create severe lower back pain.
Neck – Slouching over endless screens, or sleeping with your neck twisted can create muscle strain and tension, and tingling or weakness, in the arms. Learning how to treat the neck better can make a huge difference.
Hands and Wrists – Too many tasks, repeated for too long on the keyboard, can create hand and wrist pain that can impact everything else that we do. This all works until your hands and wrists become tight and painful. Then everything slows way down. Simple tasks become major, and every day becomes a challenge.
Shoulders - Our shoulders are always there when we need them. But when we overdo it, lifting too much, or reaching too far, pain may settle in, making even simple tasks difficult.
Wherever you are with painful issues, your chiropractor is ready to help. I have watched many friends and relatives navigate this path, returning to their regular routines with the help of their chiropractors. Painful wrists, stiff necks, aching backs and sore knees were handled and solved as the individual’s chiropractor provided ongoing backup.
