Newport Beach Chiropractor: Consider Chiropractic for a Healthy 2016
If maintaining health and wellness is one of your New Year’s resolutions, consider paying a visit to a chiropractor in January.
You check your teeth on a regular basis, just in case there’s something wrong. What about your spine? It houses and protects the body’s nervous system, which carries messages from your brain to each and every part of your body. Your nervous system runs everything. Shouldn’t you find out if it’s all working correctly?
What you might not be aware of is that spinal bones move, making it possible for us to bend and twist our bodies. But sometimes the bones get stuck out of position, which chiropractors call “spinal misalignment.” The problem is that misaligned bones can put pressure on the adjacent spinal nerves, which interferes with the messages from those nerves getting through to your body.
If the affected nerve controls your stomach, you may experience heartburn or acid reflux. If the nerve controls your bowel, you may experience diarrhea, constipation or irritable bowel. You get the idea.
Proper posture positions the joints to provide minimum stress on the body. Poor posture stresses the joints and contributes to spinal maladies. Poor posture when seated can lead to back pain, neck pain, sciatica and shoulder problems. Poor posture while standing can lead to foot, ankle, knee, hip and back pain.
Actions such as sitting in front of a computer or looking down at your smartphone can lead to forward head posture, which in turn can cause muscle strain, disc herniation and pinched nerves. It can even flatten or reverse the natural curve of your neck.
As experts on the spine and the musculoskeletal system, chiropractors can adjust the misaligned bones, allowing your body to work at peak efficiency.
Chiropractors who are trained in Chiropractic BioPhysics take this a step further. They can correct and restore the natural curves of your spine, alleviating pain and discomfort from its source. At Wellness Choice Center
