Be Energized, Be Active and Be Healthy with Birmingham Wellness Care
For many of us, the occasional bad habit may not seem like a problem. Over time, however, decades of excessive drinking, smoking, eating fast foods or failing to exercise can add up to serious health problems. Today’s high-stress, sedentary lifestyles are setting our bodies up for chronic pain and illness. Many of these problems could have been avoided through proactive our Birmingham wellness care techniques.
The good news is that it is never too late to get healthy! Everyone can benefit from regular visits to our chiropractor. Even if you are not experiencing pain, there is a good chance that your spine may be misaligned. In fact, only 10% of nerves detect pain. Consequently, many patients may be suffering from a spinal misalignment but not realize it until serious pain or illness strikes.
A misalignment in the spine prevents the central nervous system from properly sending and receiving messages between the brain and the body. For some patients, a traumatic injury such as a car accident or sports injury triggers this misalignment. For other patients, the misalignment's develop slowly over time. Poor posture can crunch the lumbar spine, causing a subluxation. For other patients, a herniated disc may slip out of alignment, placing pressure on nearby nerves.
While some patients may experience back or neck pain, for many others, a misalignment does not immediately trigger pain. Instead, common symptoms of a spinal misalignment include chronic exhaustion, low-grade illnesses, frequent allergies, and simply “not feeling like yourself.” In our busy daily lives, it is easy to push these symptoms aside. Ignoring these symptoms, however, only allows the underlying subluxation to worsen, developing into full blow chronic pain or illness. Proactive care is the best way to detect, diagnose and treat problems before serious health complications occur.
Adjustments are gentle, specific corrections that restore proper alignment to the spine by removing subluxations. All patients can benefit from regular adjustments. Whether you need assistance managing a chronic pain condition, such as fibromyalgia, or simply wish to reduce your risk for illness and allergies, regular chiropractic care can make a significant difference. Our Birmingham wellness care treatments are non-invasive and drug-free, which help unlock the body’s inner ability to heal and optimize overall health.
