Whether it’s your first trip or tenth, you’re probably still learning something new with each visit.

In this article, we’ll give you the rundown of what to expect at the chiropractor.

 

It’s normal to be curious or even to feel apprehension walking into your chiropractor appointment, especially if this is your first time. But the worst thing that could happen is to let your anxiety keep you from pursuing treatment.

The first thing you should know is that a chiropractic appointment is “hands-on and drugs off.” This means we prefer to take a more natural approach and allow your body to heal itself. However, if you are also seeing another practitioner, chiropractic care can work in conjunction so that you reap the benefits of both treatment protocols.

In this article, we’ll let you know what to expect at the chiropractor so that you can get the most out of your experience. And for those who have been to the chiropractor before, we’ll give you an idea of what your first visit to Oviedo Chiropractic will be like.



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.
