Let’s face it; a biannual trip to the chiropractor probably isn’t on your list of things-to-do at the beginning of every year. But that doesn’t mean you should ignore visiting the chiropractor altogether.
Whether you’re active or not, your body will experience a great deal of pain and stress throughout the year. If you’re active, the exercises you put your body through can have a wear and tear effect on your bones, joints, muscles, and ligaments. On the other hand, if you’re inactive and remain seated for long periods of time, your body can experience the same negative effects.
While a visit to the chiropractor may not be on your priority list, here are 10 signs you should see a chiropractor right now.
Chronic Muscle or Joint Pain
If you’re constantly dealing with muscle or joint pain, it might be time to put down the Tylenol and schedule an appointment with a chiropractor. Chronic muscle or joint pain can be caused by a number of different issues, such as spinal stenosis, osteoarthritis, or inflammatory arthritis.
It’s important to tackle these pain points before they develop into something even more severe.
Maybe it’s not muscle or joint pain, and you’re taking Tylenol to combat headaches. Whatever your reason is, consult a chiropractor if it becomes a recurring issue.
Recurring headaches can be as a result of your spinal bones supporting your head improperly, which can affect your nerves, muscles, and blood supply to your head. If this sounds painfully familiar, book a complimentary consultation now.
Restricted Range of Motion
When it comes to a range of motion, every joint has its own standard. If you’re experiencing any stiffness, pain, or swelling, it might be time for a chiropractic analysis where we test joints from full flexion to full extension.
Frequent Foot Pain
Do you find the soles of your shoes are wearing down unevenly? This could be an indication of a much larger issue than a manufacturing defect. Foot pain can lead to hip pain, which can lead to back pain, which can lead to even more health problems. If you find you’re walking differently, or feel pain with each step, consider seeing a chiropractic specialist.
Recent Automobile Accident
Symptoms of an automobile accident do not always appear immediately after the collision. Whether you’re experiencing neck pain, headaches, or you just want to be safe, contact Motion4Life if you’ve recently been in an automobile accident.
Poor Blood Flow
Do you find your feet are cold when no one else’s is? This may be due to a circulatory issue that a chiropractor can diagnosis. We have treated countless patients for circulatory issues, so if you find your appendages are colder than normal, give us a call.
Medication may not always be the solution to an irregular sleep schedule or sleeping problems. Often times, an irregular sleep pattern is the result of neck or back pain that’s been misdiagnosed. For a detailed analysis of your sleeping behaviour, contact us today.
One of the most common types of chiropractic patients are individuals dealing with arthritis. For a full diagnosis and treatment of issues relating to arthritis, schedule a complimentary consultation today.
Injury Has Returned
If you’ve had an injury occur more than once, or maybe the pain from the original injury has never gone away, it might be time to schedule an appointment with a specialist from Motion4Life. Instances like these may be as a result of an improper diagnosis, improper treatment, or a larger issue.
You Want To Be Healthy
Sometimes you just to make sure you’re healthy. Regular check-ins with a chiropractor can be an essential part of your healthy, active life. Your chiropractic specialist can help you prevent injury or diagnosis potential problems that could be much more severe.
Motion4Life has diagnosed and treated patients who have experienced these signs before. If you have questions or would like to book an appointment, contact us today.
