After waking up with a stiff neck one morning, you notice every tiny movement you make for several days. In a moment, agonizing back pain consumes you after leaning over to pick up something dropped from the floor. The pain is nearly unbearable and you find no relief whether you’re standing, sitting or lying down.
A simple movement has rendered you nearly immobile and brought your day-to-day life to a screeching halt. A constantly aching back or neck, which might be related to anything from an old auto accident to repetitive motion, is making it more and more difficult to tackle work and activities that used to be easy.
And frankly, you just want the pain to stop.
But life continues. Your family, colleagues and friends still need you and their expectations don’t adjust to your ailment. And everyone seems to have an opinion about the best solution or cure. Painkillers. Acupuncture. Yoga. Surgery. Essential oils. Ice or heat (or heat, then ice). Massage. Stretching. Rest. Chiropractic. Everyone has an opinion, an option, a fix.
The bottom line is you just want to get back to your regular lifestyle with minimal creaks, moans and groans.
We get it.
The list of treatment options that provide some relief for “some of the time” is long. There is an option that is non-invasive, cost effective, and has a proven track record – that WORKS. Chiropractic adjustments and treatments are the go-to option for millions of people around the world. Why?
1) Speeds pain relief
Chiropractors can usually quickly identify the mechanical issues that are causing your spinal pain and provide some near-immediate relief with a series of adjustments. Patients often walk out of appointments feeling noticeably better and report that their symptoms go away faster than when they use other treatments.
2) Restores motion in your joints
Part of the reason chiropractic adjustments can be so effective is because they help restore movement to areas that have “locked up” and may be impinging nerves. When your chiropractor makes an adjustment, it can help coax the muscles surrounding stiff joints to relax, which is important to restoring normal mobility.
3) Helps your body function to its fullest potential
Chiropractic adjustments treat more than just localized pain. By helping restore normal function and movement to entire parts of your body, adjustments can have an impact on your overall ability to move efficiently and with full strength.
4) May help with overall well-being and stress reduction
When you’re in pain and can’t go about your regular or favorite activities, it can be hard on your body and mind. For example, stress about not being able to do your job could lead to increased blood pressure. Discomfort could lead to trouble sleeping. Not to mention, you may not be able to do your regular exercise routine. Adjustments can help you maintain better overall health by helping speed your recovery.
5) Works for new or old trauma
It doesn’t matter if you have a recent back or neck injury or have been dealing with chronic pain, chiropractic adjustments can provide quick, noticeable relief. They can even help reduce pain and restore mobility in your shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees and feet. So if you tweaked your shoulder, sprained your ankle, are dealing with carpal tunnel syndrome in a wrist, or other issues in your extremities, consider chiropractic for a non-invasive way to reduce pain and get back to full strength faster.
