Your child shouldn’t have the weight of the world on their shoulders.

Here are some tips for selecting and wearing a kid’s backpack to prevent injury.

 

“Did you remember your math book? And your science book? What about your literature book? Your notebook? What about your pencils?”

If you’re a parent, these questions probably feature prominently in your morning routine before your child leaves for school.

All of those books and school supplies might be necessary for them to get through their day, but have you ever stopped to think about what all that weight could be doing to your child’s back? If your child has been complaining about neck, shoulder, or back pain, their backpack could be the culprit.

Pain, fatigue, anxiety, infection…

Learn more about the common signs of inflammation and how you can treat this condition.

 

Pain might be a natural part of life, but it shouldn’t be considered “normal.”

A body in pain is one that is not working properly. Any symptoms of pain or discomfort are an indication that something needs to be cared for.

And one of the growing causes behind pain is chronic inflammation.

Head, shoulders, knees and toes…

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.

Allow us to debunk the top 10 chiropractic myths.

 

Did you know that chiropractic treatment has been around since 1895? Yet, despite its 100-year-long history, there is still a shroud of mystery surrounding this holistic treatment option.

Some people fear pain, others think it’s a scam, and some even think that a chiropractor is just a quack with no education other than “cracking” bones.

These myths couldn’t be further from the truth! Read on as we debunk the top 10 chiropractic myths.

When pain strikes, you know you need treatment.

But do you need a massage or chiropractic adjustment?

 

If you’re in pain, you might be wondering whether you need a relaxing massage or chiropractic adjustment. The answer is, you might need both!

Neither has any drawbacks and both have plenty of benefits, especially when used together. Read on to find out how they both could benefit you at the same time.



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.

TMJ-chiropractor.jpg

Popping and locking should only happen on the dance floor.

If you’re suffering from TMJ, a chiropractor can help!

 

Can you name the most used joint in the human body? It’s not your knee or your wrist…it’s your jaw!

Your temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, is a marvelous collection of bones, muscles, and disc tissue that (normally) work together to allow painless freedom of movement in the jaw. Sometimes, however, this system is thrown out of whack and that’s when the discomfort of TMJ rears its ugly head.

Fortunately there’s a way to stop TMJ disorders in their tracks.

In this article, we’ll talk about what TMJ is, why it occurs, and what your chiropractor can do to help.

“My kid can visit the chiropractor?!”

Yes! There are numerous benefits of chiropractors for kids.

 

Ahh, youth!

As an adult, there’s probably a lot about children that you envy: their energy, clear skin, and the fact that they have their whole life ahead of them.

Surely a chiropractic adjustment is the last thing a child needs, right?

Not necessarily.

Don’t get used to lower back pain!

Find out how flexion distraction therapy can help.

 

Lower back pain is extremely common here in America. Other than upper respiratory infections, back pain is the most common reason for visiting a doctor.

But just because pain, numbness, tingling, or other symptoms have become a part of your daily life, doesn’t mean things should stay that way. And your friendly neighborhood chiropractor can help.

At Oviedo Chiropractic, one of the (many) methods we use to relieve pain is a technique called flexion distraction. In this article, we’ll discuss what this technique is, who it can benefit, and why you’ll want to give it a try as soon as possible.


For some, chiropractic offers relief from pain. For others, it's about feeling and looking good. Call today and see what chiropractic can do for you!
