Spinal Health & Wellness
Did you know that your spinal health can impact every aspect of your life? And when you’re ready to make a positive change in any area, spinal health and wellness is a great place to start. Learn more in this quick guide from our team at LaRuffa Chiropractic & Sports Rehab.
Importance of Spinal Health and Wellness
The spine is made up of much more than bones that keep you upright. There are also muscles, ligaments, nerves, tendons, and discs, all of which support the movement and function of the body. Your spinal column houses your spinal cord, which is made up of nerve tissues that carry signals and messages throughout the body.
Unfortunately, there are times when injuries or other issues of the spine can negatively impact each of these spinal column components. And when that occurs, you can experience the following and more:
- Chronic pain anywhere from the head to the feet
- Trouble sleeping
- Digestive issues
- Ear infections
- Low immunity
- Reduced range of motion
- Trouble concentrating
- Weight issues
These are just a few examples of what can occur when your spine is impacted. In truth, though, pretty much any illness, pain, or other negative symptoms you experience can stem from an issue in the spinal column.
How a Chiropractor Can Help You Achieve Spinal Wellness
Our chiropractor is dedicated to ensuring optimal spinal health and wellness. Spinal adjustments, spinal decompression, and therapeutic exercises are three key components of most spinal wellness plans. Adjustments are essential for keeping the spine properly aligned. Spinal decompression is a method to gently stretch the spine, ensuring every component has the space it needs to function properly. Therapeutic exercises are an excellent way to stretch and strengthen troublesome areas to both address issues and prevent issues from occurring. Other treatment techniques might also be used, according to your needs.
Tips for Promoting Spinal Wellness at Home
There are a few steps you can put to work during your daily life to maintain your spinal wellness between visits. Staying active, eating a healthy diet, and staying hydrated are just a few. Stretching and practicing proper posture is also key to spinal health. Our chiropractor can provide any other tips specific to your needs and your lifestyle.
