If we play a sport and/or have a job that puts us in stressful positions, exercise and stretching alone may not be enough to take postural stresses off our body. If we sit for hours a day every day, no amount of stretching and exercise can truly reverse the hours spent in the same position day in and day out. We develop tightness, stiffness, and pain in many common areas with repetitive, prolonged activities whether sitting at a desk or training for a sport. Chiropractic Adjustments can help to off-set the aches, pains, and tightness associated with our lifestyles by creating more motion where appropriate and re-establishing proper muscle balance and function. After proper motion has been re-established, we are able to move and feel better. For more info about the chiropractic adjustment and how it works refer to our adjustment page here.
