Chiropractic is a very powerful and effective way to both cure and prevent pain and injury. Keeping the spine in healthy alignment is the key to maintaining a comfortable musculoskeletal, as well as neurological balance that can mean all the difference between optimum or compromised function.
Listening to Your Body
At Live Well Holistic Health we believe that the body has its own intelligence and will let you know the moment something is wrong. It is up to us to listen to our bodies. Unfortunately, most of the time we ignore the beginning symptoms until they become chronic and unavoidable. When health problems are not taken care of immediately, they generally get worse.
Here are five signs that are indicative of a body needing chiropractic care:
Working at a desk, pouring over a computer is one of the causes of a stiff neck. When we do not move around during the day, keeping our heads in the same position, it can cause a lack of mobility in this crucial area, leading to more problems that progress down the spine.
Pain in the Back
Chronic back pain comes from a situation like the above where we continue to sustain bad posture throughout the day. Neck and back pain can also be the result of stress, poor posture, injuries from sports, or the result of an accident that was never attended to properly at the time it occurred.
Tension Headaches or Migraines
Stress and undue tension often can bring on headaches and migraines. They can also be the result of a misalignment in the upper back and neck, causing pressure on nerves leading to the head. A chiropractic adjustment can help reduce or eliminate head pain by removing subluxations pressing on nerves and creating more space in the body to allow for blood and oxygen circulation.
Chronic Pain in Joints and Muscles
The body is one organism whereby when one area is out of order the rest will compensate in order for you to manage until you decided on a remedy. When it comes to pain in the joints or muscles, possibly resulting from an injury that never healed properly or the overworking and strain of a particular area, a chiropractic adjustment will take the pressure off the area and rectify the problem.
Shooting Pain Down the Leg
This is a common condition where the sciatic nerve is affected, causing shooting pain from the hip area down the back of the leg. Sometimes this results from sitting too long, from lack of exercise, or from having subluxations in the spine.

We at Live Well Holistic Health are dedicated to helping you avoid these problems through gentle adjustments. When the spine is properly aligned it will help prevent complications from developing later on.
