Back & Neck Pain
As a writer you spend most of your days hunched over your laptop. Eyes glued to the screen with fingers struggling to keep up with your thoughts. Sitting in your ergonomically correct chair gives you a false sense of security. Neck stretched forward to assist your eyes in focusing on the task at hand. This is part of your creative process. A masterpiece is in progress. The only issue is your physical health. Your neck, shoulders and spine are out of alignment. No wonder you’ve been experiencing back and neck pain as of late. Kingston Chiropractic Services uses specific, scientific techniques that stimulate your body to heal itself.
What is Chiropractic?
When most people think of a chiropractor, they immediately conjure up images of backs cracking. While it is true that sometimes you may hear a cracking sounds as we align your skeleton, in reality chiropractic medicine is so much more. We are licensed medical doctors who have studied for 4 years at the undergraduate level and 4 more as chiropractic specialists. We focus on the musculoskeletal area of your body. If you’re experiencing inflammation and suspect that a nerve might be pinched, a chiropractor can help. Through a series of adjustments, we can treat the source of the problem and ultimately reduce the pain and inflammation.
Don’t Chase the Symptom
In many cases, medical physicians will treat the symptom. If you tell the doctor that you have a reduced range of motion in your neck and experience pain whenever you turn it, she will prescribe a pain reliever. The problem persists but the only difference is that you don’t experience pain as long as you take the meds. When you schedule an appointment for back pain the doc will recommend an X-ray or MRI. If he discovers significant damage will suggest surgery even though the likelihood of pain reduction is significantly low. At Kingston Chiropractic Services we don’t chase the symptom. In every situation we treat the source of the pain.
Prevent Back & Neck Pain
Unlike most doctors, we treat the body, mind and spirit. We believe in metaphysics because we know that you don’t experience a mental malady without a physical manifestation. Our bodies work like well oiled machines when we take care of them. Stretching is a wonderful way to make sure blood circulates properly and improves muscular flexibility. The human body is comprised of 85% water. When you are dehydrated, your muscles are more likely to malfunction and experience cramps. Since most of our patients have office jobs, we recommend submitting a request for a standing desk. In this way you can alternate between standing and sitting for better posture and less strain.
Complimentary Therapy for Back & Neck Pain
Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not there. Your pain is not visible without the use of technologically advanced equipment but can’t nobody tell you it doesn’t exist. If it wasn’t for your discomfort, reduced range of motion and wincing face, we wouldn’t know it was there. You can’t see electro magnetic waves but they exist nonetheless. The body is a massive ball of protons, neutrons and electrons. We use electrical stimulation and ultrasound to stimulate your body heal to heal itself without pain. Ice assists in reducing inflammation. Massage warms up the muscles and prolongs adjustments. Acupuncture targets your pain points energetically. We use a variety of complimentary modalities to restore function and reduce pain.
