February 22, 2021 Back Pain

You sit at a desk all day…so why does your back hurt so much?

Lower back pain when sitting is common, but that doesn’t mean it’s unavoidable.

 

Two hundred years ago, working at a desk job was a privilege afforded to only the top 1% of society. Nowadays, technological advancements (not to mention a global pandemic) mean that the majority of the country works, plays, and spends the bulk of their lives in a seated position.

But that doesn’t mean it’s healthy. Sitting is extremely hard on your back.

If you’re among the millions of people who experience lower back pain when sitting, you might be confused. After all, how can you back hurt when you’ve been relaxing all day?



Car accident injuries won’t get better on their own.

But a car accident chiropractor can help you heal naturally, quickly, and effectively. 

 

Should you visit your local chiropractor following an accident? An auto injury chiropractor is a professional you can rely on when you’re involved in an accident.

You may not consider the importance of getting chiropractic care, but this is an important step that could benefit your health.

This article provides five key reasons why you need to make an appointment with a car accident chiropractor.

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.
