The winter months are a critical time for receiving Chiropractic care. We all tend to become less active during these cold winter days. Less activity plus the cold weather may stiffen joints as the synovial fluid that acts as a lubricant between our joints moves less freely. Chiropractic care can help preserve joint mobility and flexibility, which also helps prevent injuries.
“Chiropractic adjustment puts the neck and back into proper alignment, alleviating pressure on the congested lymph ducts and allowing them to flow more freely to protect you against colds, flu and other illnesses.” Chiropractic, 2013
Wintertime also brings us into the height of the cold and flu season… more time spent with family, friends, social occasions, and travel. Chiropractic adjustments act to remove subluxations (misalignment of the vertebrae) from the spine, thereby promoting a healthy nervous system. This allows your brain to better communicate with the rest of your body and allows your immune system to better repel harmful germs and bacteria in the body.
Extended air or car travel can strain the muscles leading to neck pain, back pain and hip pain. Scheduling Chiropractic adjustments before traveling help ensure your joints, muscles and ligaments are loose and flexible and your spine is aligned. In addition to spinal adjustments, we offer our patients recommended stretches and exercises that are especially helpful for travelers who will be going long distances.
Chiropractic adjustments after traveling allows the body to recover faster and return to your normal schedule faster. Travel can cause stress and tension in the body, especially after sitting for hours on a long plane or car ride. There is a common saying, “I need a vacation to recover from my vacation”. Chiropractic care upon returning home can help to improve mobility and allow your body to not feel so run down. Reducing pain and tension can also allow the body and mind to feel more relaxed so you can get a better night’s rest. 🙂
The best way to Thank Us is to tell others!When you tell a friend about chiropractic care, you offer them encouragement and hope. Chiropractics depends upon informed patients sharing with others. Come and get adjusted today!
