The research is in; resolutions don’t work. What does? Making conscious lifestyle choices to support a healthier mind body and spirit. Typically, most people think about visiting chiropractor offices in Ithaca and Cortland because they just experienced a traumatic experience like a car accident. We get it! Car accidents can cause several underlying injuries like whiplash.
While you might not notice any pain or discomfort within the first 24 hours after the incident, it’s common to develop stiffness and headaches that can be alleviated through regular visits. Today, we’d like to focus on the other amazing health and performance benefits when you schedule regular visits with a chiropractor in Ithaca and Cortland.
Improve Physical Performance
You don’t need to be a star athlete to reap the benefits of chiropractic adjustments. Let’s say you made the commitment to exercise regularly. Great choice! However, one day after a particularly strenuous workout, you develop muscle soreness, aches, and pains. Chiropractic care can help improve how you recover after a tough workout, so you maximize the effects of your training sessions. They can also enhance significant markers for physical health like flexibility, balance, and increase range of motion.
Reduces Stress and Enhances Total Body Wellness
Stress and anxiety can adversely affect the quality of your sleep and your ability to focus throughout the day. Regular chiropractic adjustments can help you fall asleep, stay asleep longer, lower stress levels, and reduce tension headaches.
Stress is the silent killer for many Americans, especially for adults struggling with chronic pain. If you need pain management in Ithaca and Cortland, you’re not alone. One of the most common reasons many of our clients visit Barton is to combat back, neck, and shoulder pain. Some clients only need to stop by occasionally, while others have more chronic conditions.
Chiropractic sessions can be an excellent solution for adults who suffer from crippling migraines, depending on the root cause. Sometimes the spine and neck can suffer from excessive pressure creating migraines. At Barton, we can start by talking to you about any past injuries or medical conditions and perform a physical exam. Come prepared with a list of all of the medications you’re currently taking and all of your questions. This is an opportunity for us to really get to know you and your current habits.
Everyone experiences pain differently. We want to know where it hurts or what you’re typically in the middle of doing when you feel the pain. Your family history can also impact your health. If you have my family members who struggle with spinal problems, let us know.
Start the New Year Off Right
We all want to live healthier and happier lives, but it can be difficult knowing where to begin. Far too often, new clients wait until they're experiencing pain to call. Pain can often be a sign of underlying medical conditions. Don’t ignore it; let us help! All you need to do is schedule the first appointment. We’ll take care of the rest.
We’d love to Meet You.
