Feeling sore? You’re not alone. Chronic pain is one of the most common complaints. An estimated 50 million Americans struggle with aches and pains in their day-to-day lives. But why does chronic pain affect so many people? There’s a number of reasons, and Motus Integrative Health has solutions for them. Our chiropractors can get you back on your feet using a few simple treatments. Here’s what might be causing your pain.
Sitting down on your couch and binge-watching your favorite program might seem harmless enough, but long periods of inactivity are bad for your health. When we sit, we put extra pressure on our spines. Poor posture makes the effects even worse since the pressure isn’t being equally distributed along the spine. Over time, this wears down the disks in our spine, causing them to slip out or become inflamed. You can mitigate the effects of inactivity by working with a chiropractor. We can realign your spine, which improves communication in your nerves and reduces your discomfort.
Everyone experiences stress from time to time. However, when your stress becomes excessive, it can wreak havoc on your physical health. Your body is caught in a constant “fight or flight” state, causing you to tense your muscles and brace for impact. If this continues for an extended period of time, your muscles become rigid and painful. Fortunately, chiropractors can use various treatments to calm your muscles as well as reduce your stress. Acupuncture is an excellent way for anxious individuals to feel better. By activating various energy points on your body, you can release your tension and gradually feel more relaxed.
If you suffered an injury from an accident, it can cause lasting pain even after it heals. Whether you slipped or were involved in a car accident, the pain that results from an accident can be intense. That’s why it’s vital that you see a physical therapist as soon as possible. The sooner you start physical therapy, the better chance that you’ll feel better. Combined with chiropractic care, physical therapy will help your injury heal.
Arthritis is very common in older adults. It appears throughout the body: your fingers, knees, elbows, wrists and feet. The pain can be quite uncomfortable, with many people suffering from limited mobility. A chiropractor can help you improve your mobility and reduce pain as you move. As we complete the chiropractic adjustments, you may hear a popping noise. That’s air being released from your joints. It’ll help to reduce inflammation, resulting in less pain.
From fibromyalgia to cancer, chronic illnesses are among the most common causes of pain. While these conditions cannot always be cured, we can help you manage your pain. Chiropractic is one of the best ways to reduce pain when you have a chronic illness. In addition to medical care, visiting a chiropractor can help you improve your wellbeing.
