11 Feb It’s a New Year, Time to Straighten Up!
The benefits of chiropractic medicine have been well known for over a century, and the practice is only getting more fine-tuned as technology catches up to the art of manipulation. Our skeletal system is essential for keeping our bodies healthy and functional, but it’s a system that can get out of whack very easily. Whether you live a mostly sedentary life, working behind a desk, or a highly active lifestyle of various sports or leisure activities, something is bound to slip out of place – especially if you participate in certain movements that are repetitive to only one side of the body.
Here are a few main areas in which Sunrise Body Revival Chiropractic & Massage specialize:
ALLEVIATE PAIN – IMPROVE FUNCTION AND HELP THE BODY HEAL ITSELF
As one of the alternatives to pain-relieving drugs, the American College of Physicians low back pain guideline recommends spinal manipulation along with heat, massage and acupuncture. Choosing to visit a chiropractor first could be the best decision you make when it comes to chronic pain or areas of tension. People tend to become accustomed to dull aches and pains that could be caused by the spine being misaligned. It’s important to know that you don’t have to live like that! Relief is possible, and it can be found through chiropractic manipulation.
PREVENT INJURY – RELIEVE UNNECESSARY TENSION
Chiropractic care is effective for injury prevention by emphasizing proper alignment of the spine and pelvis. If your spine is out of alignment, this could cause a snowball effect of issues to arise. Our bodies are smart, almost too smart in some cases, because we are great at compensating when certain areas are not functioning properly. However, this useful ability can create further disabilities when an area of the body steps into action where it doesn’t belong! If you have an abdominal injury, your lower back will compensate. If you injure one leg, your spine may correct to apply more pressure on your healthy extremities. It’s extremely important to maintain proper alignment as to not cause further injury to an already compromised body.
OPTIMIZE HEALTH – IMPROVE YOUR BODY AND MIND
Spinal alignment can clear nerve blockage and promote healthy blood flow to the body, soothing aches from stress commonly residing in the neck and back. When we are not feeling our best, that can usually spill over into our social, private and professional lives.
Minor aches and pains can lead to more increased tension, and eventually distracting discomfort – not to mention diminished productivity. Visiting a chiropractor can provide relief from a multitude of symptoms, even those you might not have considered to be fixable through chiropractic intervention!
