Need A Chiropractor from the Holidays?


The holiday season can be a stressful time for most people.  It is a time of family, fun and faith.  With so much to be grateful for, it is also very easy to get caught up in everything and forget to take care of your family’s and your own health.  One example, is if you place others first on occasion it can be beneficial, but when it is constant, the toll on your body and health can be detrimental.  Here are our top ten reasons to visit your Chiropractor during the Holiday Season:


  1. Holiday Stress –  Buying gifts for your loved ones, decorating the house, planning travel arrangements, cooking up a feast, handling family drama, and more all while you live your day to day responsibilities (kids, housework, work, etc.).  It is no wonder why Holiday stress is number one!  Your body deals with stress by tensing up, headaches, neck pain, back pain, jaw pain, stomach aches, etc.  Many people “throw their back out” around the holidays from shoveling snow, stress, shopping too much without taking care of their body.  You need to put yourself first, address the cause and get adjusted routinely to treat and prevent injuries. Chiropractic is a powerful tool to keep your body functioning, pain relief and improved health.
  2.  Travel –  Whether you plan on traveling in a car for long period of time, bad weather, heavy traffic, long lines at the airports, pressure changes on the plane, sleeping in strange beds, carrying heavy bags…it all takes a toll on your spine. The list goes on and on, but chiropractic is great for helping treat injuries brought on by wear and tear from traveling!
  3. Colds & Flu – Tis the season for the sniffles and chills. With the change of weather, your body has to re-adapt to the new ‘climate’ this puts a tax on your immune system and if it is not functioning at its peak – symptoms will start to show themselves.  Keep your immune system at its highest with routine Chiropractic care.
  4. Holiday Text Neck –  As Christmas gifts or as traveling companions – our smart phones, tablets and other hand-held devices will be used a lot – by children and adults.  Prolonged use can cause strains, sprains and subluxations in the neck and upper back.  Routine Chiropractic care can help alleviate these symptoms.
  5. Lack of Nutritional Choices – With all the Holiday parties and get-togethers filled with cookies, cakes, breads and other unhealthy items loaded with sugar and carbs – it’s no wonder many people gain weight around the Holidays!  Keep making healthier choices by filling up on veggies, green leafy salads and high quality animal proteins and limit those Holiday goodies.  Regular office visits will help with any sluggish digestive issues as your nervous system directly affects all organ functions in the body including the stomach and intestines. If the communication between the brain and stomach or intestines are not running smoothly, our digestion can slow down.  Adjustments can get your bowels running smoothly again and help keep you regular throughout the winter.
  6. SHOPPING! – I know most of you do not want to hear this, but by over-doing it when you are shopping, carrying large bags and boxes that are too heavy for you can cause shoulder, neck, back and elbow pain. Standing on concrete floors at large stores for long periods of time can cause back pain and knee pain. Also loading and unloading heavy boxes into your back seat can throw your back out.  For all you ‘Online Shoppers’ you can get hand and wrist pain as well as neck and back pain for prolonged computer use.  Be careful when shopping to avoid injury, but know that your chiropractor can help with any shopping-related injuries!
  7. Decorating – Let’s face it, cutting down the tree, hauling it, setting it up, lifting heavy boxes out from the basement, putting up the lights on the house, bending, lifting, setting up decorations with circus-like acrobatics can put a lot of stress on your body!  Decorating itself can cause some injuries if we are not careful. Don’t be a Christmas Casualty this year.
  8. Shoveling – Here in the south, the chances of a white Christmas are small, but for many who live up north, they can injure themselves from using bad form while shoveling snow.  Wet, heavy snow can really be damaging, especially when bending and twisting.  It is important to have an good form, a ergonomic shovel, and common sense.  If it is too much for you – hire the kid down the street or wait for it to melt.   If you do injure yourself, make sure to see a Chiropractor sooner rather later to avoid long-term disabilities.
  9. You Love Your Family and Yourself – I know I see the world differently than you.  Chiropractic has changed my life and health.  I see it help hundreds of people each week.  From seemingly minor issues (aches and pains) to amazing miracles (infertility or a case that was dismissed by a local MD), we see success with Chiropractic care.  My whole family and I keep up our care because we want vibrant health, avoid injuries and keep our immune systems high.  Why would you NOT want the best for you or your family?  Seriously, if you buy organic food, work out and take care of yourself but do not get routine Chiropractic care – you are missing a big part of the puzzle without even knowing it.  You are worth it – so keep up your care.
  10. It Just Feels Good! – Sometimes, you just don’t need research, science or other reasons to validate your visit with us (we also have all that info if you want).  If you are busy baking, cooking, cleaning, shopping, hosting, shoveling and just want to pamper yourself, who cares?  Just do it!  Just visit us – it will help you feel great, more mobility, less inflammation, relaxing, de-stressing, releasing muscle tension and you feel pretty darn good afterwards. So give yourself a gift that feels great this Holiday season!
