The holidays are in full swing and you may be feeling the Christmas spirit, but you may also be feeling some of the negative side effects of the holidays. Many people experience an increase in stress, aches and pains, and general discomfort at this time of year. Here’s why you should get adjusted this holiday season.
CHIROPRACTIC CARE CAN HELP WITH ACHES AND PAINS
As 2020 comes to a close, you may be feeling tired – no, exhausted – after all the ups and downs of the year. Those general aches and pains are only exacerbated by holiday travel, too little movement, and injury from holiday decorating. At Shields Chiropractic, our chiropractors remove restrictions from the spine to help improve mobility and reduce pain. The more often you get adjusted, the greater the impact will be on your comfort, health, and life.
CHIROPRACTIC CARE CAN HELP KEEP COLDS AWAY
Practicing social distancing can help prevent the spread of illness, but the holiday season is notorious for germ spreading. We are usually thrown into busy, stressful situations that have large groups of people and are indoors. Regular chiropractic adjustments can help boost your immune system to prevent you from getting sick to begin with and shorten the time you feel unwell when you do get sick. As your spinal health strengthens, so do the other systems of the body, including the immune system. Chiropractic can’t guarantee you won’t get sick, but it is a great place to start to keep your body healthy.
CHIROPRACTIC CARE CAN HELP LOWER ANXIETY AND MANAGE STRESS
The holidays can be a stressful time of year. Planning travel, zoom or socially distanced holiday gatherings, buying gifts – all in the midst of a pandemic – it all adds up. Chiropractic may not be able to remove the triggers that cause you stress, but it can help your body cope.
Regular chiropractic care helps eliminate tension that builds up in the spine, which can reduce stress and lower your body’s natural response to stress triggers. If there’s ever a time to make chiropractic part of your healthcare regimen, it’s during the holidays!
