October is a special month for us here at Total Chiropractic Care and Wellness, and not just because it’s a beautiful time of year on Long Island. October is National Chiropractic Health Month, which is an event designed to help raise public awareness of the benefits of chiropractic care. Chiropractic doctors also want to highlight the natural, whole-person, patient-centered and drug-free approach to health and wellness that are at the core of their practice, according to the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) publication ACA Today. Total Chiropractic Care and Wellness enthusiastically supports National Chiropractic Health Month and we want to let you know how chiropractic can help you.
Total Chiropractic Can Help Bring You to Optimum Health
There are a variety of reasons why you might come to Total Chiropractic Care and Wellness in Medford. You may be suffering sudden or chronic back pain or neck pain. Or you may have been involved in a car crash or workplace accident. Many of our patients come to us with sports-related injuries and we can help there too. There’s a lot you should know about chiropractic care and National Chiropractic Health Month, so here’s what you need to know this October.
Chiropractic Care Keeps You Moving
The theme of this year’s National Chiropractic Health Month is “Move 4 Life.” Chiropractic practitioners want to encourage the public to move more. This will encourage you to improve and maintain both your musculoskeletal health and your overall health. Physical activity like exercise can help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease or other conditions like Type 2 diabetes. Movement can even help reduce the risk of some forms of cancer.
Exercise is an important part of our practice at Total Chiropractic, and movement can help reduce back pain. This is particularly true if you’re aging. Movement and exercise can reduce the frequency and severity of back pain and it’s a healthy alternative to things like surgery, or taking prescription opioid pain medications. Chiropractic manipulation and diet are also ways to cut down on riskier alternatives for patients suffering back or neck pain.
Total Chiropractic Offers Many Paths to Healthier Living
At Total Chiropractic Care and Wellness, we offer exercise plans, diet information, and other lifestyle advice as part of our treatment program. We also offer other services such as spinal decompression, which relieves pressure on your spine through the use of a computer controlled table that employs physical manipulation and spinal positioning. Trigger point therapy is a method we use to relieve chronic muscular pain. Trigger points are small areas of knots or spasm within a muscle that cause pain and discomfort. Total Chiropractic can loosen these knots to reduce pain and improve blood flow.
We also have a Magnetic Resonance Therapy system, called the “Magnesphere” which serves as a stress reliever. The Magnesphere uses low level magnetic fields to balance your body’s Autonomic Nervous System (ANS). The result is you’ll feel less stressed and you will feel a reduction in things such as pain, inflammation and digestive issues.
Whether you’re feeling pain, if you’ve been injured in an accident, or you have a sports injury, come to Total Chiropractic. We can lead you back to the road of optimum health. And we wish you a Happy National Chiropractic Health Month! Contact us today!
