How to avoid a visit to the chiropractor

woman-with-back_pain-at-deskWorking on my patient’s structural problems is only half the job. The other part is finding the PROVOCATEURS – the myriad of little irritations that make your spine suffer each day.

When your spine is strong and healthy, they don’t cause a problem. When it’s weak and irritable, look out!

We always counsel our patients about the obvious stuff…
“Don’t sleep on your stomach!”

It’s the little weird things that are different for each patient. One patient finds that his recliner pushes his head too far forward and aggravates his neck and shoulders. Another discovered that sitting on the couch while working on her laptop computer was killing her low back. It’s different for everybody.

Find the provocateurs in your daily activities. It may save you a visit to the chiro!
