Imagine having trouble turning your head to check for traffic, or having difficulty brushing your teeth. For many, limited range of motion is reality. And when the spine is the culprit for this limited range of movement, everyday tasks can be difficult if not sometimes impossible to complete; the pain can range anywhere from dull and nagging to piercing and debilitating.
Impaired or diminished movement can occur for any number of reasons. Of course, aging is a culprit, but injury and lifestyle (exercise, improper mattresses, etc.) can contribute greatly. If you work in a chair throughout most of the workday, or if you are required in your work to lift heavy objects, you are at risk for developing a problem in the spine. Everyone old and young can experience impaired or diminished movement. It’s also possible that the spine is responsible for other conditions such as headache and carpal tunnel syndrome. There are so many different ways that a person’s vertebrae can become misaligned.
If the spine is the culprit, it’s time to pay a visit to your chiropractor at Larson Chiropractic. Your chiropractor can help to increase the range of motion in your spinal cord and all the other areas connected to it. The chiropractic medicine will help to increase the blood flow and help to alleviate the dull or chronic pain associated with misalignment issues and nerve impingement. And once your session is complete, your chiropractor will be able to recommend stretches and exercises that will help to strengthen your back and make it stronger.
