This time of year can be a stressful season for many of us. In the hustle and bustle of last minute holiday shopping, and meeting end-of-year goals at work, it can be easy to forget to take care of your own health. In this blog, we explain why you should book a visit with a chiropractor over the holiday season.
Our bodies have a physical response to stress by tensing up, which can cause headaches, neck pain, and low back pain. Chiropractic care is a great way to deal with the toll stress takes on your body – in just one session, many people claim to feel less stressed and are relieved of the discomfort their stress was causing.
Traveling over the holidays can be an enjoyable experience, but spending an extended period of time sitting in a car, train, or plane can take a toll on your back and neck. Sleeping in a bed that is unlike your regular sleeping arrangement can cause discomfort, as can carrying heavy luggage. Receiving an adjustment from a chiropractor is one effective way of treating travel-related discomfort. Before leaving on your travels, be sure to pack a tennis ball -- you can use it as a self massager whenever you need a quick fix to tension in your neck and back.
Cold & Flu
With the colder months come the flu season. When you mix being stuck indoors with weakened immune systems, it causes for many people to come down with a head cold or even the flu. Getting adjusted regularly can help balance the nervous system, boost the immune system, and rid toxins that can make us unhealthy.
