Being in a car accident is undoubtedly traumatic - emotionally and physically. It is common to feel aches and pains, even if you are “fortunate” and escape serious injury. But when it comes to your spinal and neck health, you cannot be too cautious. Even “minor” injuries can have significant impacts on your mobility, comfort level, and overall health and wellness. What do you need to know about car accidents and your spine?
Spinal manipulation has been practiced for centuries; though, as a discipline, it’s relatively “young” at a few hundred years old. Countless people have found relief and reinvigoration. From boosting immune, respiratory, digestive, cardiovascular, and joint health to increasing energy, the advantages are certainly as numerous as they are diverse. But does chiropractic care for children deliver the same benefits? And are there risks to consider?
After a long winter, it’s only natural that we look forward to spring’s warmer temperatures, sunny days, and the beautiful scenery that begins to bud and blossom. But if you suffer from allergies, spring is very much a double-edged sword. You long to be outside - and you often “pay” for it with itchy, red, watery eyes, a runny nose, and other uncomfortable symptoms. What can you do? The answer may surprise you: chiropractic care.
Are you considering chiropractic care? Usually, when people think about pursuing this avenue, they want to relieve pain. Something doesn’t feel right; you’ve suffered an injury; weather is causing a flare-up in aches and pains. These are all great reasons to visit a chiropractor - but there are other benefits to treatment that you may not have realized. Let’s take a look.
Winter isn’t the time to hibernate! It’s a great time to get out there and enjoy a different side of Mother Nature. Skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, shoveling, skating, and just playing in the snow are terrific ways to stay fit. But winter weather can also increase your chances of experiencing back and knee injuries or pain. Cold is associated with heightened joint aches. Don’t let a drop in the mercury sideline you this season.
