“My spine is the reason my hand hurts?”

Learn more about referred pain and how chiropractic adjustments can help.

 

People are often surprised when they hear that chiropractors can treat more than just back pain. And while there is a lot more to adjustments than just “cracking backs,” chiropractors do put a lot of focus into the spine.

As it turns out, misaligned vertebrae in your spine can cause symptoms of pain and discomfort throughout your entire body. This is known as referred pain and it’s a huge part of what makes chiropractic care so effective.

In this article, we’ll discuss what referred pain is, how it works, and the best way to treat it so you can get back to living pain-free!

Your chiropractor can help with more than just back pain.

 

What’s the first word that comes to your mind when you hear the word “chiropractor”? If you’re like most people, you instantly think of the spine.

Chiropractors and spines seem to go together like peanut butter and jelly. Many chiropractic practices even have a logo that features a spine in some way, shape, or form. But back issues are just a small portion of the ailments chiropractors can treat.

From head to toe, your chiropractor can provide you with symptom-free relief from pain and discomfort.

2020 was the year that most of us started working from home…and your back probably paid the price.

Here’s how to set up an ergonomic workspace anywhere that will help—not hurt—your body.

 

This year has brought a lot of changes into our lives. Not only are we all getting accustomed to wearing masks everywhere, many have switched to working remotely. And while you probably enjoy skipping the commute and wearing pajamas to work, we’ve noticed that a lot of home “offices” aren’t exactly ergonomic. 

Prior to the pandemic, if you worked from an office, you probably had everything set up the way you like it: a comfy chair, computer at the perfect height, and maybe even a footrest. Now? Some of you have had to make do with a TV dinner tray on the couch. 

What’s the good news? With only a few handy hacks, you can have an ergonomic workspace that will alleviate your “Self Isolation Syndrome” pains. Read on for the top five areas that are most important to your chiropractic health and what you can do to avoid potential injury or discomfort.

Want to get a better night’s sleep?

As it turns out, it’s not always about finding the best mattress for back pain.

 

People often ask about the best mattress for back pain, but your mattress isn’t the only thing that could be keeping you from getting a good night’s sleep.

Back pain after sleeping is most likely caused by improper spinal alignment, which can itself be caused by a number of factors (or a combination of them): your pillow, your sleeping position, and yes, your mattress.

As your Oviedo chiropractor, it’s important that you get enough sleep to be restored and refreshed when you wake in the morning, but that can’t happen if you’re not sleeping correctly.
