“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.

Why is that?

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

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.

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.


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!
