Nowadays, it’s common to be working and studying from home, usually at a desk—sometimes on our bed. But the more we lead a sedentary lifestyle, the more likely it is for our bodies to protest.

After some time, poor posture brings about neck, shoulder, and back pain. We can also experience muscle tension, headaches, and a limited range of motion. Ignoring these symptoms usually makes them worse over time. That’s why it’s paramount to look for ways to maintain proper posture and keep your musculoskeletal system healthy.

A chiropractor can alleviate your symptoms and provide lifestyle counselling to prevent future issues. Wondering when to see one? If you have any of the following concerns, it’s time to learn about the many chiropractic benefits that await.

When You Have Back Pain

Back pain is an exceedingly common problem, and usually manifests in the lumbar region. It often results from slouching and hunching, which place excessive pressure on specific muscles and joints. Other causes can range from old age to jobs that require heavy lifting.

No matter the cause, a chiropractor can help with back pain through spinal manipulation and gentle adjustments to mobilize surrounding joints and muscles.

When You Have Neck Pain

The neck, vulnerable as it is, can get damaged from osteoarthritis, poor posture, or one night of sleeping on it wrong. It can furthermore result from misalignments, muscle strain and disc bulging or herniation.

A chiropractor can provide neck adjustments that will release the accumulated pressure and reduce pain. They will also treat any existing muscle strains and spasms that could be contributing to your issues.

If You Experience Frequent Tension Headaches or Migraines

Headaches and migraines can come unexpectedly and put a damper on our day. Many factors contribute to them, including misalignments in the spine, dehydration, unwholesome diets, genetic factors, and vision problems.

Similar to the approach to neck and back pain, chiropractic care can provide spinal adjustments and soft tissue therapy to relieve existing muscle tension. This will boost blood circulation to your head and allow the body to flush out toxins, thereby helping to relieve headaches and migraines.

When You Have Muscle Spasms

When we first experience muscle pain and spasms, our initial reaction might be to look for over-the-counter anti-inflammatories. However, while they can provide temporary relief, they don’t address the root cause of your symptoms.

Muscle spasms can be a result of poor posture or musculoskeletal misalignments. A chiropractor can alleviate your pain without using drugs and provide spinal adjustments if necessary.

When You Experience a Limited Range of Motion

A limited range of motion occurs when our joints have a reduction in flexibility. This can affect any part of the body, but it’s most common in our neck and shoulders after sleeping in an awkward position or experiencing an injury. Whatever the reason, having stiff muscles is never an ideal situation.

A chiropractor can identify the causes of your symptoms. After testing how well you can turn, bend, or flex the affected body part, they will perform the necessary adjustments and propose targeted exercises.
