Let you, there’s nothing better than being a chiropractor! I love what I do and I love my patients, too! I have a downtown chiropractic office that absolutely buzzes with health excitement, whether it’s my patients coming for their regular chiropractic checkups, seeking help for an acute musculoskeletal problem, or looking to the wonders of chiropractic to aid them after and accident or injury, they always know that they’re going to find out “what’s new” in the healing science and art of the Chiropractic “I” World! And, what’s new right now is that in October, when National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM) is celebrated, the theme will be “Get TechnoHealthy!”
What does that theme have to do with you? Well, the focus will be on how chiropractors, like me, can help you to stay healthy and injury free while toting the gadgets you love, or if you work long hours in front of a computer. Did you know that excessive use of mobile devices, and incorrect posture while using smart phones (and other gadgets) or while sitting in front of a computer can lead to neck, back, wrist, and even thumb pain? In fact, the problem is becoming so widespread that earlier this year a spokesperson for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration said that musculoskeletal injuries remain one of the biggest workplace health and safety problems in American industry.
Chiropractic care, of course, can treat these conditions naturally, but your chiropractor can teach you how to take breaks, to stretch and exercise to prevent pain and injury, and how not to maintain the same stooped-over posture for long periods of time or to repeat the same motions endlessly.
Your chiropractor knows a lot about the musculoskeletal system and how modern day technology can often affect it in painful, and sometimes debilitating ways. Don’t wait for October. If you’re experiencing neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, wrist pain, or even thumb pain, see your chiropractor today! It’s time to learn how to use modern technology and stay pain-free at the same time.
