Chiropractic Adjustment in Temple TexasThe holidays can wreak havoc on our minds and bodies. Stress, travel, too many parties with not enough sleep, poor eating habits, and snow shoveling, can all add up to making our bodies sore and stiff. This can lead to a crabby attitude and, in some cases, real symptoms of pain. Here are a few reasons to visit your chiropractor this holiday season.

Travel Tension

Sitting in a car seat or a small airplane seat for hours can cause our muscle cramps and spines misalignment. Regular visits to your chiropractor can help restore natural alignment to your vertebrae, promoting better posture and reducing muscle aches and pains.

Holiday Stresses

Trying to do everything in a few short weeks is challenging. Add family members to the mix and your nerves can get frayed quickly. Our bodies can respond to stress by cramping up or making us feel out of sorts. Taking the time to have an adjustment at your chiropractor’s office can help reduce or eliminate feelings of tension and discomfort, leading to a happier, healthier, and more agile you.

Winter Weather

Not only can cold and damp weather affect our joints, but slips and spills on icy walkways can cause painful injuries. Our natural gaits are also impacted when the snow and ice fall. Walking to avoid obstacles – even crowds – can force our bodies into an uncomfortable rhythm. Chiropractic adjustments can keep soft tissues soft and supple, allowing muscles to function with better efficiency.

Shoveling Snow

Not only can shoveling snow increase the chance of heart attack, it can also increase the likelihood of back and shoulder injuries. Tackling the wet white stuff even when you are in the best of physical condition can be hard.  A well-aligned spine is a in better position to adapt to the strain of shoveling snow. And if you do strain your back, neck or arms, your chiropractor can help get you back to business quickly.

Seasonal Depression

Several studies have shown that chiropractic care can help mitigate symptoms of depression. Many people report increased feelings of depression and sadness during winter months. Because chiropractic care can have a positive impact on the nervous system, in addition to improving blood flow which can help relax muscles, you may want to consider regular adjustments if you suffer from seasonal affective disorder.
