With everyone that goes on during the winter holidays, it’s easy to lose focus on what’s important like taking care of your health. Putting friends and family members ahead of you during this time of the year can be emotionally fulfilling but also cause significant stress and negatively affect your overall performance.
Our Atlanta Chiropractors can help you stay healthy during the winter holidays. When it comes to stress management, preparing for long distance trips, and protecting yourself from the cold or flu, our staff can provide a variety of tips that help you enjoy Christmas pain and stress-free.
Stress is often associated with the winter holiday season as many people spend money that typically exceeds their regular budgets, travel long distances, and mediate family feuds. Regardless of what causes each person’s stress, exposure to prolonged periods of tension can cause tension headaches, neck pain, back pain, cramps, fatigue, and insomnia. Thousands of people throughout the United States experience back complications as a result of holiday stress and even more forget to take care of their health.
Although the winter holidays are all about family and loved ones, it’s still important to put yourself first when it comes to stress management. Chiropractic Adjustments are excellent holistic treatment solutions for eliminating stress, tension, and anxiety. Just a few adjustments throughout the holiday season can help you avoid health complications associated with pressure, while also keeping your body loose and comfortable.
The months of November through January are the busiest time of the year for traveling long distances. Spending hours in a car can negatively impact your body, especially if you are stressed out driving through poor weather conditions or congested traffic. Chiropractic care is fantastic for reducing aches and pains associated with the wear and tear of long distance trips. Neck or sciatica pain caused by sitting in the car for hours and sore shoulders associated with carrying bulky luggage are both treatable with adjustments.
Although this time of the year is considered to be the winter holidays, it is also the peak of the cold and flu season. Being indoors for extended periods with other people, receiving limited amounts of vitamin D, and coping with stress all increases the chances of getting sick. Fortunately, regular adjustments help maintain a healthy nervous system and provide a much-needed boost to the immune system. Adjustments are also significant for eliminating harmful toxins from the body, which contribute to sickness.
