Getting a good night’s sleep shouldn’t cause you pain.

Learn how to sleep better and get chiropractor recommended mattress and pillow suggestions.

 

The phrase “good night, sleep tight” shouldn’t refer to how your muscles feel when you wake up in the morning!

Good rest is important for feeling our best as we work, play, or just relax. But the quality of your sleep doesn’t just depend on your REM stages. Your mattress, pillow, and sleep position all play a crucial role in the health of your spine.

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.


Whiplash-1200x787.jpg

April 21, 2023 Car AccidentsNeck Pain

Chiropractic care can be used to treat numerous physical ailments, and one of the most common ailments it is used to treat is whiplash.

Whiplash is an injury to the neck that often occurs as a result of a sudden, unexpected jerk or snap of the neck. It typically results from car crashes, contact sports, roller coaster rides, and other physical activities where there is rapid neck movement in one direction or another.

It produces a tremendous strain on the muscles, ligaments, and joints of the neck, resulting in pain and soreness throughout this area of the body that could last anywhere between a few days to several months. Other symptoms include restricted movement, headaches, trouble sleeping, and dizziness.

Fortunately, a chiropractor can provide relief from whiplash. Through tailored adjustments, you’ll not only start seeing improved mobility, but also decrease many painful symptoms associated with your injury.

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.

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