Do you experience pain? Perhaps you feel a twinge of discomfort in your neck or shoulder when you first wake up in the morning. Or maybe your lower back aches when you sit for long periods of time. Does it hurt to bend down and tie your shoes, thus limiting your mobility?
The summer is a time for soaking up the sun in lawn chairs, playing in the sand, participating in water sports and traveling by car or plane – not for dealing with aches and pains. Pain messages travel along the peripheral nervous system until they reach the spinal cord. Movement and physical exercise stimulate your nerves and joints which is excellent for battling pain messages, but it’s important to listen to these signals before they become too intense to bear, affecting your overall quality of life.
Don’t ignore your pain. Take the first step to treating the underlying cause of your pain: schedule a chiropractic assessment at Woodlands Family Chiropractic today.
