Many people don’t give much thought as to how they sit in a car to drive. However, how you sit could be affecting not only your posture, but also the level of pain that you experience throughout your back and shoulders. If you are in pain after long car drives, it’s likely because you don’t have the proper posture, and because you are not providing sufficient lumbar support.
Many people make the assumption that if they want to treat back pain, it is one or the other. They can have massage or they can have chiropractic care. Actually, it doesn’t have to be massage versus chiropractic care; it’s possible to have both. They are each responsible for treating a difference aspect as to why you have the back pain to begin with. Massage is for the muscles while chiropractic is for the bones.
When your kids are experiencing aches and pains, ear aches, headaches, or anything else, it can be advantageous to take them to the chiropractor. Many people think chiropractic care is for adults only, but there are more and more studies to show that chiropractic care for kids can be just as beneficial.
One of the unexpected side effects of seeing a chiropractor is the elimination of brain fog. You may notice that you have better focus and even brain function after you have had an adjustment. There are some great benefits to having your spine aligned. A misaligned spine could be causing more issues than just some back pain – and that’s why it’s worth making an appointment.
