Tips For Healthy Living!

Did you know that massage therapy dates back thousands of years to ancient countries such as China, Japan, India, Egypt, Greece, and Rome? During the Renaissance, it became popular in Europe and was introduced in the United States in 1850 where it became popular for a variety of health reasons. During the 1930s and 40s, it lost some of its popularity because of the scientific and technological advances in medical treatment. However, during the 1970s athletes started using massage therapy to help them in their game, reinstating the popularity of massage therapy.

So what does massage therapy do? Research supports the general conclusion that massage therapy is effective for a variety of health reasons that are beneficial for most people, including:

Common among many adults, neck pain can actually occur at any age. It can happen suddenly, such as from an injury, or it may develop slowly, such as from years of poor posture. Some instances of neck pain can resolve themselves within a few days or weeks, but if it continues for many weeks or months, it could signal an underlying cause that needs to be taken care of. A strained neck chiropractor will look to find the underlying cause of one’s neck pain and then prescribe the appropriate treatment.

So how do you know if your neck is out of alignment? Misalignment can be caused by any number of things, such as the birthing process (which causes problems later in life), whiplash or a sports injury, repetitive trauma, such as poor posture, staring at devices too frequently, sleeping in odd positions, and poor posture either from sitting or standing.

Are you wondering how can you relieve lower back pain fast? First, it’s important to talk to a Doctor or Chiropractor about what many people consider a low back pain cure. Chiropractic treatment focuses on your spine—through which signals travel to and from your brain. This command center determines your body’s movements and functions. Even though chiropractic treatment is primarily for your neck and back, remember that chiropractic doesn’t just treat the symptoms; it treats the causes!

Chiropractic care also offers unique treatments for allergies, digestive issues, disc disease, headaches, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel, sciatica, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and so much more. Your chiropractor will work to identify and correct a low back pain problem long before it becomes a restrictive, unbearable, and disabling condition. Many people turn to drugs, surgery or hospitalization as a low back cure to try to manage their condition.

Are you wondering how you can keep living with the extreme pain in your back? If you’re suffering from pain caused by disc problems, your medical physician may have recommended back surgery. There are certainly certain situations where surgery may be necessary, such as severe bone, disc, and nerve destruction. However, the majority of people suffering from back pain and/or sciatica never actually need surgery. Your doctor of chiropractic can discuss back surgery alternatives with you to see if you can benefit from other forms of treatment.

You may wonder why discs in the spine cause such pain? First, you need to understand what a disc is and what it does for you. There are intervertebral discs with a tough outer ring and a soft gel-like center that separate each vertebra. They act like little shock absorbers, cushioning the bones so they don’t rub against each other as you move. The spine receives its curve, flexibility, and strength from health discs.
