We recently discussed three reasons why visiting AICA Atlanta during the winter holiday season is useful for reducing stress, relieving anxiety, and avoiding the cold or flu. Today, our Atlanta Chiropractors are highlighting three additional health benefits associated with our services and why they are especially helpful during this time of the year.
Our Chiropractors treat an unusual amount of patients who experience elbow or shoulder pain associated with carrying heavy luggage, stomach aches or cramps, and recurring tension headaches. Consider the following information that speaks to the causes of these conditions, as well as how Chiropractic can provide immediate relief.
Shopping for hours at a time and carrying heavy gift bags often creates significant elbow or shoulder pain for many people throughout the community. Standing on hard surfaces for long periods also creates back and knee pain. When attempting to pick up bulky items, make sure to lift with your knees rather than pull your possessions up with your back to avoid strains and sprains. You can also relieve back, elbow, and shoulder pain with a basic adjustment provided by our Chiropractors.
Most people’s dietary routines change during the winter holidays as work and family parties are filled with foods that contain high levels of fat and sugar. Traveling long distances and driving from one shopping destination to another also makes fast food more convenient. These habits affect our digestive system and often cause various health complications such as constipation, stomach cramps, and heartburn. One of the benefits of Chiropractic care is its ability to support a healthy nervous system, which helps improve our ability to digest meals and absorb more nutrients.
Headaches are caused by a variety of sources from dehydration to chronic stress. They are also caused by blunt trauma to the head, joint pressure, and misalignments in the spine. To understand the source of your tension headaches, a Chiropractor can perform a comprehensive examination that determines the cause and extent of your condition. And, through regular adjustments, our team can eliminate misalignments and relieve tension to provide long-term pain relief.
There are far more health benefits associated with Chiropractic care than we can describe here.
