17 Jul 4 Signs it’s time for a Chiropractic Adjustment
Do you ever feel like sometimes you’re body is just out of whack? Whether it’s headaches, muscle soreness or flat out chronic pain, your body knows how to let you know when things just aren’t right. When you start getting these kinds of signals, it’s your body’s way of letting you know it needs a realignment. Naturally, a visit to the chiropractor is just what you need to get yourself realigned and rejuvenated. Here are some ways your body is trying to let you know it’s time to come in and see us.
Headaches & Migraines
There are plenty of causes for headaches and migraines, but often they’re caused by tension related misalignments in your neck, shoulders and upper back. Many jobs, whether you’re hunched over a computer desk or chucking hay bales into a flatbed can leave you feeling tired and stressed, especially in the neck and shoulders. The strain of day in – day out tension in these areas can be relieved through alignments and readjustments.
Soreness from repetition
Surprise, surprise, more issues related to your job. Making the same motions each day can lead to a myriad of health issues, from carpal tunnel to chronic back and shoulder soreness, doing things as part of a daily routine can lead to general back and joint pains. Your chiropractor can help you keep your back aligned and that can relieve the soreness and alleviate posture problems as well.
As much as we’d like to be able to lay all the blame on work being the root cause for most misalignment issues, the truth is even people who live a healthy and active lifestyle can be susceptible to problems that arise in those who aren’t as active. Jogging, lifting weights, riding a bike and even swimming can leave you feeling tired and sore. Regularly scheduled massages and adjustments are your ticket to recovery!
One of the biggest red flags that you are in desperate need of some chiropractic treatment is chronic pain. We’re not talking soreness from running or a tension headache–we’re talking about those shooting pains that race down your legs, or that shock-like twinge in your neck every time you reach up to turn on the garage light, or the sting in your hip that seemed to start when you tweaked your back 6 months ago. It only takes a small misalignment to cause bigtime chronic pain.
The key to unlocking better mobility, flexibility and overall freedom of movement with less aches and pains is only an appointment away. Getting in to see us can be just what you and your body need to get that spring back in your step. Give us a call or shoot us an email to get yourself an appointment today!
