Winter can be painful

Best chiropractic treatments are in order when pain is a result of cold winter weather or winter-related activities. Unfortunately, many people put off a visit to their chiropractic doctor until they are in extreme pain. Although it is not recommended, that approach is understandable. Many people are convinced that if they do not feel any pain, that they have not been working hard enough. However, pain is not the only reason to visit a chiropractor during the winter season. Winter activities can be dreaded and desired. We dread shoveling snow from the walkways or installing chains on the car; and we desire to snowboard or build a snowman. The problem is that whether the activity is dreaded or desired, both can still result in pain.

These activities place a lot of stress and strain on the spine. If the spine is just a little out of alignment, the body must fight furiously to maintain good health. If the spine is out of alignment and placing pressure on the nerves, the inevitable result will be pain and other health issues. Hence, there are many benefits to be gained from a winter season visit to your chiropractor. Timely and regular checkups can drastically improve your emotional and physical well-being. We thought it a good idea to cover some of the health issues that indicate that you should make an appointment with your Charlotte chiropractor:

  1. Chronic back pain

A chiropractor specializes in determining if your back pain is related to your posture, injury, or health habits. Treatment is always performed without the use of surgery or prescription medications.

  • Muscle and joint pain

You chiropractor can recommend gentle spinal adjustments, massage therapy, and/or rehabilitative exercises to relieve pain in your muscles and joints. Therapies are designed to increase blood flow and nerve conductivity in the injured areas.

  • Headaches

Headaches are caused by several factors including: dehydration, malnutrition, stress, trauma, and poor diet. Many chiropractic doctors are able to detect the cause of your headaches and devise a treatment plan that will reduce the severity and frequency of your headaches.

  • Pain after an accident

Motor vehicle accidents and winter-related injuries can be physically and emotionally traumatic. It is not uncommon for an injured individual to feel fine for a few days, only to discover later that they are dealing with acute pain. Chiropractic doctors can diagnose injuries after a traumatic event, even when the patient is not feeling any immediate pain.
