Day by day you deal with so much. If you have children you can attest to the amount of stress that comes with being a parent. And if those kids are in school, its even more of a stress getting them ready for it in the morning and making sure they have things done for it. Stress is one of the biggest factors that can affect your health, without you even knowing. With all this, getting a chiropractic adjustment is something that can easily slip your mind or something you just keep putting off and putting off. Don’t worry we are not chastising you here, we are just trying to let you know that an adjustment can actually make your life easier. But the question remains, “If an adjustment is so important, what are some signs that its time to get one?” We have listed out five among the numerous reasons.
- If you are having a recurring pain that lasts for more than 24 hours. This pain can be in any part of your body. Head, chest, neck, arms, legs, back, etc. Pain is the signal to your body that something is not as it should be, and ignoring these signs can be a potential health risk. Chiropractic care usually encompasses overall health and wellness and having regular visits can address these issues in a timely manner.
- Stiffness in your spine. Waking up with a stiff back? Maybe throughout the day your back just feels stiff and it’s making it hard to do some basic movements? That’s a sign. Back pain is usually concentrated to either: soreness, tension or stiffness. When your back is stiff or has pain it usually means that something is wrong. This can limit your movement and possibly even cause further damage, getting to your chiropractor at the first sign of stiffness can put you at literal ease.
- Your vision is blurry/head is hurting for no reason/dizzy spells. We already know your spine is your lifeline. When its out of alignment or is under tension it’s not meant to be under, its going to affect your entire body. Having the above symptoms could be either related to improper diet or spine complications (maybe even both). Since chiropractic care is about all over wellness, it will either fix the problem or get you on a plan to avoid these symptoms.
- Sometimes…you just know. Humans have pain receptors for a reason. When we feel pain, it means something is not working like it should. So when you are sitting at your desk doing nothing and you get a kink in your neck and think “Man, something is just not right with my neck.” This is one of the best times to visit a chiropractor! No matter what it is a chiropractor can either: fix the problem or let you know if you need to go to the hospital.
There are obviously a host of other reasons to get an adjustment, but keeping these 4 in mind can cover the most of them. Although your chiropractor can remind you of when its time to get an adjustment, you have to realize they are doing it for your own good. They take every part of your life and calculate how often you need adjustments and treatments. If something comes up between adjustment dates, it is your responsibility to be proactive about your own personal wellness. Just stop into your chiropractor or give them a call and they will set you up in no time! They can also take notes about your possible new health concern and adjust your dates accordingly.
