"WHEN THERE IS NO MOVEMENT THERE IS PAIN. WHEN THERE IS MOVEMENT THERE IS NO PAIN."
- Traditional Chinese Saying
POSTURE ISSUES & PHYSICAL INACTIVITY
Do you sit in an office chair most of the day, hunched over a computer? Or do you spend all day on your feet? Perhaps you are constantly bending and lifting? In any case, your body adjusts to how you use it. Oftentimes this means overcompensating for certain imbalances. This can affect your posture, weaken muscles and tendons, irritate joints and cause a whole host of other problems.
The symptoms of these imbalances often don’t show up until later down the road, progressively getting worse. By the time you notice them, there are often many other areas of the body that have been negatively affected.
Here’s just one example: People who sit in a chair all day improperly and without getting up to move regularly can find their hip joints becoming tight and inflexible, which leads to back and neck pain. One reason is because tight hips place extra pressure on the back and spine by altering the angle at which the pelvic area normally rests. This often results in headaches and other chronic conditions as well.
Using targeted Strength & Conditioning Exercises (Exercise Therapy), Chiropractic Medicine, and Massage, we help you regain strength and flexibility where it has been lost, addressing the underlying structure and functionality, and restoring whole body wellness.
But, all of this would go to waste if we didn’t also give you tools, information, and motivation to maintain and increase these gains, including techniques to ensure proper posture, exercises you can do on your own, a comprehensive understanding of your own body’s mechanics and needs, and most importantly – the confidence to turn any positive change into a lasting, healthy lifestyle.
