Make 2022 the Year of Preventative Health
We believe that spinal health is the foundation for overall wellness. Many of our patients have been living for years without the proper amount of awareness and knowledge necessary to make improvements in their spinal health. This has left them in the throes of back pain and spinal degeneration which then affects all other parts of their life. We respond by providing every new partient with a comprehensive physical examination that includes the patient’s medical history, a musculoskeletal evaluation and static postural analysis. This allows us to identify shortcomings in musculoskeletal health including spinal misalignment, nerve dysfunction and postural weakness. From here we tailor an individual plan that will help you reduce pain, improve function and prevent future illness and injury.
Making your health a priority this new year
Don’t wait for your health problems to catch up to you! It’s time to stop ignoring the factors in your life which are holding you down. Let’s work together to design a solution that will help you feel like your best You this new year.
Merry Christmas from a Concerned Chiropractor
Pain is no one’s idea of a good time
We are in the business of helping you face down your back pain. The first step of any solution is to identify your particular risk factors. Are you prone to overeating? Do you overindulge in the punch, then find yourself sprawled on the couch? Do you feel extra sluggish during the holiday period? All of these things are hard on your spine. Weight gain causes extra pressure on the spine; alcohol contributes to inflammation; and inactivity allows for tension to accumulate in your muscles, pulling your spine out of alignment. If you struggle with chronic back pain, you need to be proactive about the health of your spine this holiday season.
Doing something about back pain this holiday season
You have the power! Watch what you eat and drink, and take every opportunity to get up and move. Give our office a call to schedule an appointment before, during, or after the holiday season. Let’s make this the last holiday where your back pain has a prominent seat at the table with the rest of your family.
Spinal Traction: Is it Right for You?
Spinal traction: decompression designed for you!
Gravity is an ever-present force on our spines. And while the best thing for us all to do would be to float in space, the next best thing is spinal traction. In essence, mechanical traction utilizes a specialized table to reverse the compression of your spinal discs. This creates a negative vacuum of space in which discs are able to heal and the spine is able to align itself. People with the following conditions should consider spinal traction as a way to provide relief from their symptoms:
- Bone spurs
- Degenerative disc disease
- Herniated discs
- Slipped discs
- Pinched nerves
Spinal traction is a natural therapy for your spine
This is a non-surgical form of pain relief that comes with very few side effects comparatively. If compressive forces have taken their toll on your spine, we urge you to give our office a call and find out how spinal traction and its decompressive therapy can help you feel less pain today.
