Do you change the oil in your car when your engine dies? Or do you routinely change the oil in your car to keep it in good condition for as long as possible? Hopefully, you chose the latter. Our bodies are very similar to cars in that there are a great many things we can do to stay in commission. Many patients come in after an injury or when they're experiencing extreme pain, and while chiropractic care is certainly needed at those times, I feel it's equally as important to invest in preventive chiropractic care. When potential issues are identified and addressed early on, chiropractic care can actually prevent frequent injury and pain in many cases. It's more than just performing a few techniques to correct your alignment. At Strack Chiropractic Wellness Center, I teach you how to move your body in a way that will strengthen your spine and allow for healthy movement. Much like any other health venture, it's not a one and done situation. It takes consistency and a commitment to change your movement habits. Here are five reasons preventive chiropractic care is the best option.
We find that people are always looking for ways to improve their quality of life, and chiropractic is a great way to do that. The good thing is that it isn’t just for injuries, it’s for anyone who wants to stay aligned and keep their body moving the way they need it to. One way to accomplish this is through the Active Release Technique (ART). Believe it or not, chiropractors can learn a lot about your body through ART as they can identify the approximate age of an injury and any points of tension. This technique can reduce pain, relieve headaches, and increase flexibility and range of motion.
The female body undergoes a long list of changes throughout pregnancy. Though some changes are noticeable (weight gain and expanding belly), others are only noticeable to the mother herself. One symptom that the majority of pregnant women will experience is back pain. This back pain can be intermittent or extend throughout the entire pregnancy. Every body is different so each experience differs. Due to the constant changes occurring, there are two main causes of this back pain: hormones and postural distortion.
We have many patients that come into Strack Chiropractic Wellness Center with a variety of ailments and injuries. However, we most frequently see patients come in complaining of lower back pain. I’ve seen everything from fractures and muscle spasms to disc injuries. My ultimate goal is to minimize, if not eliminate, the patient’s pain through chiropractic pain management, and get them to moving better as quickly as possible.
