Chiropractic health care specialists provide many groups of people with care. They are also trained to provide rehabilitation services to patients who have suffered traumatic injuries, as well as to patients who are experiencing physiological conditions that interfere with their normal range of movement.
Chiropractic care has a fantastic track record when it comes to safety, injuries are extremely rare and almost never happen as a result. It is one of the safest drug-free non-invasive therapies available in relation to the joints and muscles. The most pain you’ll feel is soreness or aching for maybe 24 hours after, just like after a nice hard workout. Nothing of any real concern. A fun fact for you, as joints are stretched and moved to different positions, your spinal joints tend to pop. Surrounding these joint capsules in your back is tissue fluid. In this fluid are bubbles are other air pockets. The popping sound is just all of this moving around and bubbles coming free, completely harmless!
If you truly want to improve, you’re going to have to work to keep your neck and spine safe in your everyday life. One of the most damaging things in our society is bad posture. A lot of us find ourselves hunched over a desk all day, not taking breaks to stretch and walk around often if at all. This lack of stretching and movement can have a disastrous effect on your back and neck health, causing intense stress and pressure on just a few muscles and joints. Here’s a fun fact for you: for every inch your head is past your center of gravity, you’re putting around an extra 10 pounds of stress on your neck. This adds up extremely fast and can cause you extreme pain quickly. Do yourself a favor, be aware of your posture and don’t be afraid to do regular stretching.
