With Christmas being a few days away, most people are exhausted from the wear and tear of the holiday season.
Considering the number of stressors that exist in our everyday environment, scheduling an appointment with one of the Chiropractors at AICA is an excellent way to unwind.
Stress causes your body to become restricted. Experiencing too much stress on a regular basis can lead to recurring headaches, neck pain and other severe conditions.
The holidays can cause stress for a variety of reasons. The loss of a loved one is often harder to cope with during the holidays.
Traveling to time with family members, standing in long shopping lines, driving in poor conditions and even the financial aspects of the holidays can all create stress that feels overwhelming.
A quick Chiropractic Adjustment can reduce pressure on your head and neck, increasing the flexibility of your joints.
During the holidays, most people tend to lift heavy boxes full of ornaments, trees decorations, and other seasonal items. Lifting heavy objects without maintaining complete balance can cause you to pull or strain your back muscles.
If you need to lift or carry a heavy object, try to keep your knees bent and refrain from twisting your waist.
