Why Chiropractic Could Be Your Health Compass
By Sandy Schroeder
At a time in which healthcare seems to dominate a lot of conversations, it might be smart to line up our own personal health compass, singling out the key issues that we need to work on.
Most of us know where our weak spots are. Weight could be an issue. Stress could top the list. Or the need for less sitting and more activity could be ongoing.
Whatever you know you need to do, seeing The Joint Chiropractic clinic in your area could be a great way to get some help.
The Joint is staffed with healthcare professionals who believe wellness is as basic as a healthy diet and good dental care. When you stop by, you will find a wellness center that handles a steady flow of teens, adults and seniors, helping each one pinpoint individual problems and work out the best solutions.
Your chiropractor will explain how a healthy spine could lead to a healthier you. Then he or she will want to know if you have pain, or health questions, what your normal schedule is, and what your medical history is.
If it seems beneficial, a spinal adjustment will be done on a comfortable table in an open bay area. The adjustment may create far-reaching pain relief in areas such as the back, neck, sciatic nerve, or other joints.
Patients often report additional benefits such as more energy, more alertness or an improved sense of well-being. At that point, these benefits may tie into your major health goals.
Using weekly 15-minute adjustment sessions could also be the right spot to work on weight loss, stress reduction, or better posture.
Health Goals In Action
I have seen this approach work well for people who spent hours before their computers in fixed positions. With the help of their chiropractor, they learned how their workplace should be set up, what their posture should look like, and how to break up their work schedule with short breaks and stretching exercises.
I have also seen people, who were suffering from anxiety and stress, begin to take control of the issue, using deep breathing exercises, gentle yoga or tai chi to achieve calmness. With the help of their chiropractor, they established a better lifestyle with a healthy work flow and stronger people connections.
In each case, chiropractic spinal wellness, and individual health goals, were worked through. If this seems like a way for you to work on your issues, stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic in your area and find out more.
The Joint offers an affordable health care program that eliminates the need for insurance. No appointments are needed, and walk-in visits are welcome. Convenient weekend and evening hours are available.
