Soothe Winter-Related Health Conditions with Chiropractic Care
The cold months are undoubtedly the worst when it comes to all the different health conditions you can contract. Aside from the general cold and flu issues, there are various winter-related health conditions and physical issues you may experience as a result from slipping on ice, having to shovel snow or increased inactivity.
As a result, chiropractic care becomes something of a necessity during the long, cold winter months. At Holistic Vitality Center, we provide a range of chiropractic treatments that are designed to target common chronic issues that usually flare up during the colder months of the year.
If you commonly experience aches and pains during winter, here’s how chiropractic care can help turn your life around and prevent you from hibernating in pain throughout the season.
Stay Active and Move Freely
With regular chiropractic care throughout winter, you get to kill two birds with one stone. For one, our treatments are designed to help realign your spine and provide more fluidity to your joints with different adjustment techniques.
In turn, this helps limbs and joints move into their correct positions, which gives your body more range of motion to move freely without pain or restrictions. As a result, you instantly have the ability to get up and be more active whereas most people limit their movement during wintertime.
As a bonus, going to your chiropractic appointments forces you to get out of the house and walk around. So, not only do your joints feel better and more mobile, but you also get the benefit of burning calories, boosting endorphins, keeping the blood circulating throughout your body, and staying active/healthy. Despite the freezing temperatures, we encourage an active lifestyle, year-round!
Get Rid of Chronic Winter Pains
It’s no coincidence that many people experience aches and pains during the winter. It’s all due to the cold weather as it essentially freezes the fluid in your joints. This prevents your body from moving with ease. It’s almost like opening a gate that’s not adequately oiled. Instead of one side sliding freely, there’s that horrible sticking feeling and a nasty noise as you struggle to open it. The same thing happens in your joints – bones can rub together as there’s no natural lubricant, which causes chronic conditions like arthritis.
At Holistic Vitality Center, we can put a stop to your inflamed and rusty joints this winter. With our regular chiropractic care, we can use adjustments to get your joints moving freely and encourage the fluid to work as it should. This means you can enjoy life without chronic pain nagging at you every day.
It’s well worth getting chiropractic care if you experience any of the following issues during winter:
● Chronic low back pain
● Stiff neck
● Frozen shoulders
● Pain at rear and front of the hip
● Constant stiffness in upper back
Staying Healthy During Winter
Winter can cause numerous issues, so you need to do your best to stay fit and healthy throughout. Along with regular chiropractic care from our experts at Holistic Vitality Center, there are a few extra things you should do in your own time as well:
● Don’t be sluggish! Inactivity will only make your aches and pains worse as it makes those joint fluids stagnate even further. Get up and walk around as much as you can to stay active.
● Eat a healthy diet! Eating poorly – combined with inactivity – only leads to weight gain. This puts more stress on your joints, causing more pain. So, eat a healthy diet to keep your calories at a reasonable level!
● Wrap up and get cozy! Don’t let your joints freeze over by dressing poorly in winter. Wrap up warm, so you’re cozy and oblivious to the cold weather.
