Tips For Healthy Living!

With summer here and people increasing their activities, whether in professional or amateur sports activities, it is possible that some type of injury can occur at any point in time. This could be due to a poor warm-up, ineffective stretching techniques, poor posture, or undetected problems in the spine or joints. In order to minimize permanent injury or persistent pain, many athletes will seek chiropractic sports care by a chiropractor who understands how the body responds to various treatments.

So what does a sports chiropractor do? They help athletes recover faster from injuries and also to prevent further damage.  They help the athlete optimize their athletic function through non-invasive joint manipulation, while helping improve muscle tone, balance, and performance. They can pinpoint and resolve small issues that could create problems when stressed by repetitive movement, even if it is currently painful.

Do you have lasting back pain that makes it hard to keep up with your daily activities? If you are finding it hard to think of little else except finding relief from your pain, nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy might be the solution you are looking for. To decide if spine decompression therapy is right for you, it is helpful to understand just exactly how it works.

A chiropractic doctor uses nonsurgical spinal decompression therapy to gently stretch the spine (with the use of a computer-controlled table customized for your specific needs) to change the force and position of the spine. This takes the pressure off the spinal disks (gel-like cushions between the bones in the spine) by creating negative pressure in the disc. As a result, bulging or herniated disks may retract, taking pressure off nerves and other structures in the spine. This, in turn, helps water, oxygen, and nutrient-rich fluids to flow into the disks, promoting natural healing.

Each treatment may last 30 to 45 minutes and may require several appointments spanning five to seven weeks.  To enhance the effectiveness, other types of treatment may be used in conjunction with spinal decompression, such as:

With today’s high-tech jobs and online schooling, many adults and children spend a lot of their day gazing into computers or staring down at their smartphones. The muscles around the neck joints will become tired and overstretched. Driving for long periods of time can also have the same effect. Eventually, day after day of these postures, you will eventually end up with displaced neck joints, shoulder tightness, pain, and discomfort.

This leads you to the question, “What is the fastest way to relieve neck pain?” Of course, consulting a neck chiropractor for treatment is the best option to obtain pain relief, combining stretching and manipulation. In addition, here are some things you can do easily in your home:
