We know you are busy during the holiday season, but the benefits of chiropractic care cannot be ignored, especially when most of us are left stressed out and exhausted by the holiday season. Here are a few reasons why you should see your chiropractor this season.
Helps Fight SAD and Depression
The winter blues are a true thing. Since there are shorter hours of sunlight, many individuals will have a drop in their vitamin D levels, which results in seasonal depression or moodiness. The added stress of the season does not help.
Thankfully, chiropractic care can help your body manage the depression and anxiety better. This is because regular wellness adjustments help your nervous system to communicate effectively with the rest of your body. When the nervous system and spine are not in optimal condition, then the body and mind are not optimal either. Chiropractic care combined with a vitamin D3 supplement can really lift your moods and make you feel better this winter.
Prevent Shoveling Pain
Everyone dreams of a white Christmas, until they have to start shoveling all of that beautiful snow. Shoveling is one of the worst things for your back because it requires lifting heavy loads and twisting and bending at the same time. Seeing a chiropractor before and after you shovel can greatly decrease your chances of injury, and also help decrease any pain or soreness from the job. Also, remember to keep good posture while you lift the shovel, keeping your back straight and the shovel as close to your body as possible.
Prevents You From Dropping After Shopping
Got a huge holiday shopping list this year? Then that is all the reason you need to stop by your chiropractor before or after your trip to the mall. Shopping can leave you in a lot of pain, and we are not talking about the pain of buyer’s remorse. Instead, the constant standing in line, carrying heavy bags, and stress of crowds can cause your back, knees, and neck ache. Remember to wear supportive shoes and to use a cart when possible so that you are not carrying too many heavy items at once. If you are at the mall, try making multiple stops to the car to store your bags.
Don’t let back or neck pain ruin your holiday fun. Instead, stop by The Joint… the chiropractic place for a wellness adjustment that will fit into your tight schedule and budget this season. The best part is you don’t even need an appointment.
