Working from Home? Chiropractic Care Can Help You Stay Healthy

Working from Home? Chiropractic Care Can Help You Stay Healthy Pulse Chiropractic
Working from home has become the new way of life for many Americans.  Remote work has many benefits, but it can also increase your risk of joint and muscle pain. I hear patients complain that since working from home their aches and pains have become worse. Chiropractic offers treatment that will ease your pain and stiffness and help you avoid chronic pain.

How Working From Home Can Cause Pain:

Although it is true you can work anywhere, you may soon find yourself regretting your decision to make the couch or kitchen table your new workstation.  The couch may be a comfortable spot to watch a movie or game, but it isn’t designed to adequately support your body while you work.  Spending hours hunched over your laptop or slouching on the couch causes changed that affect the alignment of the vertebrae in your spine. Subluxation is the word chiropractors use to describe spinal misalignments, and are a common cause of neck, back and joint pain.  Misalignments also increase tension on your muslces, ligaments and tendons, causing muscle pain, soreness, stiffness, spasms and reduced range of motion.  If a subluxation affects your neck, you may develop painful headaches that makes it difficult to concentrate.

Chiropractic Care Relieves Work-from-Home Pain

Pain relievers are not the only solution if you have painful muscles and joints.  Medication can certainly be helpful, but its effects are only temporary and side effects are many.  Once the drug wears off, you are in pain again.  Chiropractic treatment does not just treat your symptoms but targets and corrects the source of your pain. Pulse Chiropractic also offers other helpful treatments including:
  1. Acupuncture
  2. Spinal Decompression
  3. Level 4 Cold Red Laser
  4. Graston: Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization technique
  5. Interferential Muscle Stimulation
  6. Corrective Spinal Exercises
  7. Kinesio Taping
During your chiropractic treatment sessions, your doctor may suggest exercises that will improve your posture and stretch and strengthen the muscles that supports your joints.  You will also receive posture tips and information about ergonomic furniture that properly supports your body while you work. Working from home does not have to be a painful experience.  Chiropractic care can help you keep your joints aligned and your muscles relaxed.  Contact our office if you are ready to schedule an appointment.
