There’s nothing like feeling fit and healthy so you can enjoy the activities that add value to your life, whether it’s chasing your grandkids around the playground or pursuing an Olympic gold medal. However, life’s aches and pains can often get in the way.
So, what’s next?
Is your body up for a game of tennis, a round of golf, or a stroll around the park on a beautiful Mill Creek spring morning?
Chiropractors modify the spine to reduce joint strain and enhance nerve function, boosting joint mobility and muscle strength. They can also help you maintain optimal health through diet and exercise.
Getting Off on the Right Foot
Overdoing it when returning to an active, outdoor lifestyle can result in back and neck pain, as well as decreased mobility. Whether these symptoms are the result of months of cold weather, too much downtime, or taking on too much at once, a chiropractor can offer a variety of treatments, including chiropractic adjustments, exercise, and nutrition, to help you become and stay healthy and active. Here are some of the most frequent concerns, as well as how chiropractic care may be beneficial.
Patients seeking treatment from back pain, which can be caused by wear and tear, bad posture, nutrition, or lack of exercise, account for 35% of the 22 million chiropractor visits each year. When compared to a placebo treatment for pain, studies have demonstrated that individuals with acute pain exhibited substantial evidence of improved function and health after chiropractic treatment.
Another common issue is neck pain. Spinal manipulation improves active range of motion and reduces discomfort in people with neck problems. According to one study, manipulation was 1.5 times more effective than massage-style mobilization treatment in decreasing neck discomfort.
Chronic headaches can keep you cooped up and in the dark, and poor posture (the same issue that causes backache) can exacerbate tension headaches. In one study, one month of chiropractic therapy (about two visits per week) was shown to be more helpful in the long run than a routinely recommended medicine for the condition.
With correct treatment from a chiropractor, a variety of other conditions that may keep you indoors can be improved. Chiropractic adjustments can help to clear blockages in the neurological system that are stopping your body from functioning properly, slowing you down and keeping you rooted to your couch. Dizziness, tinnitus, osteoarthritis, congested ears, and a variety of other ailments can be relieved by getting in shape.
