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.



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.

June 8, 2021 Neck Pain

You have a real pain in the neck, but why is it there?

Here are 10 causes for neck and shoulder pain.

 

Neck and shoulder pain are both very common, but that doesn’t mean you should just pop some Tylenol and shrug it off.

Neck and shoulder pain can be caused by anything from a heart attack to sleeping wrong and everything in between. Some of these causes are more serious than others, so it’s important to pay attention to your body.

A quick diagnosis can help shorten the duration and recurrence of the pain. Read on to find out the common causes of neck and shoulder pain, and what you can do about it.

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.

Sometimes, headaches can be a real pain in the neck.

Find out the most common causes (and the best treatment) for neck pain and headache.

 

Uh oh.

Here it comes: the tell-tale twinge of pain and pressure that indicates a headache is imminent. But if that wasn’t bad enough, your neck has started to tense up. Now you feel the ache almost down through your shoulders. It’s enough to make you wonder why they even call it a “head” ache.

Whether you feel your neck pain at the onset of your headache, or throughout the entire episode, your primary concern is making it stop. But it’s just as important to understand why you’re feeling neck pain and headache.

In this article, we’ll go over some of the most common causes of neck pain and headache as well as how to treat it.

When it comes to car accident injuries, you can’t just “walk them off.”

Even a whiplash injury deserves quick, thorough treatment.

 

That fender bender put your car in the shop, but at least you were able to walk away from the accident. In fact, all you have is a little soreness in your neck. No big deal, right? It’ll heal on its own with a little ice and a couple of ibuprofen.

Unfortunately, whiplash has a reputation of being either a minor injury or a completely fabricated condition designed to make lawyers rich. As always, the truth lies somewhere in the middle.

Your whiplash injury might not warrant a hospital stay, but it’s a lot worse than just “a sore neck.” In this article, we’ll talk about what happens to your body during a whiplash injury, the immediate and long-term symptoms, and the best way to seek treatment.



Is the COVID-19 pandemic a (literal) pain in the neck? Don’t go to the hospital!

Here’s three reasons why chiropractors have been deemed an essential business.

Whether you’ve been treating your pain with medications or simply “powering through” it, you’re probably hesitant to do anything about it now.

Hospitals and other healthcare facilities are at full capacity with patients who have been infected with COVID-19 and you’re trying to stay at home to help flatten the curve. You’d hate to increase the burden of doctors and nurses on the front lines or, worse yet, contract the disease yourself.

But musculoskeletal pain doesn’t schedule itself with global pandemics in mind. So what can you do about it?

The answer is simple: visit a chiropractor!


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!
