Or maybe you didn't use proper form when you picked up that heavy box at work, and you tweaked your back.
Sometimes, the pain lingers for days and days with no sign of relief.

Maybe even the emergency room?
Or do we need a little more patience?Read More
Stress can not only make us physically ill, but it can change our entire personalities.
Stress can cause headache and fatigue, and it can make us less than desirable to be around for others.
There's a lot we can do to combat our stress, however.
Avoiding things caffeine and cigarettes can help.
They are both stimulants, so they are likely to increase your stress levels.
Get physical. Working out or doing anything strenuous has been proven to lower stress levels.
And sleeping can go a long way to help cure your stress.
Many people are stressed for the simple reason that they are tired.
However, there is one thing, one person you can see, that can lower your stress that you've probably never considered:

If you're considering Chiropractic Treatment for the first time, and you don't quite know what to expect, that's completely normal and understandable.
Chiropractic care is consistently evolving to include more up-to-date techniques and strategies that will ultimately help patients achieve the pain relief they need.
The procedures used by experienced chiropractors help to assess, track and modify each patients treatment plan as needed.

When you arrive at a Chiropractic Clinic, one of the most important elements to chiropractic care is diagnostic testing.
Chiropractic Doctors utilize a variety of diagnostic techniques to help them fully understand what is happening in each patient's musculoskeletal system.
X-Ray Testing is one of the most heavily used on diagnostic techniques. X-ray machines provide the doctor with a much deeper understanding of the body’s internal layout.
As most people know, x-rays use radiation to provide an image of the dense tissue inside a person's body such as bones and teeth.
Chiropractors practice a hands-on, drug-free approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis, and treatment.
Chiropractors can recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, along with nutritional and lifestyle counseling.
The most common and well-known procedures performed by chiropractors is spinal manipulation.
That's the procedure that makes your back pop.
A spinal manipulation increases or restores joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into the affected joints.
Chiropractors are known to treat back pain, but they can also help with conditions like neck pain, headaches, and joint pain.
If you're suffering from nerve pain, the chiropractor will be able to help you as well.Read More

It can keep you from completing even the most routine tasks around the house.
Washing the dishes, cooking dinner, and playing with your kids can be unbearable.
If you suffer from neck pain, or if you ever have, I'm sure you were desperate for relief.
Our first reaction is to grab the painkillers. This provides temporary relief, but only treats the symptoms.
Then you go to your primary care doctor. They'll give you tips and advice, and then send you home with more painkillers.
Again, painkillers only treat symptoms. They don't do anything to address the underlying issue.
So what are we to do? Short of surgery and physical therapy, are there any options?
Or do we wait patiently for the pain to go away?
Luckily, there is another option.Read More
