The start of 2020, or 20plenty, is upon us! A new year means a new start for most people. But, not for everyone. New Year’s resolutions fall through, holidays fizzle out fast, loved ones leave, and the pressures of work can leave you with plenty of not-so-good-feelings. You may be losing your temper at home, waking up sad, and dreading work or even getting out of bed! If that’s the case, a bad back is the last thing you need. And, you’re probably feeling the signs already! Tight shoulders, sore neck, headaches, pain shooting down into your leg – this is an indication that the stresses of day-to-day life are taking a toll on your body too.
It’s Not All In Your Head!
Feeling pressure, stress and not coping with the negative emotions that accompany it? Are these feelings wreaking havoc on your body? Your hormones fall out of balance, pain perception is heightened, inflammation takes over and your immune system suffers, hurting your body’s ability to repair! Commonly, the first to fall victim to this is your back. Your adrenal glands go into overdrive and your body’s stress response activates, causing tension and spasms. Starting to sound familiar? Well, you’re not alone. 1 in 10 people suffer from back issues such as this.
So, how do you mend a bad back? The mind is a powerful thing. But, it’s not enough to combat poor posture, back-breaking work, playing with the kids or sitting at your desk all day. Your back not only supports your physical weight, but your emotional baggage too. The worse your emotional state is, the worse this back-pain becomes. Unfortunately, this in turn can cause your mental health to plummet, creating a vicious cycle. This may be a hard pill to swallow, but it’s not all doom and gloom. Luckily, healing your body will rejuvenate your mind, giving you one less thing to worry about! Here’s what you can do.
Unlock Your Spine, Release Your Energy
Healing your body and mind requires a special touch. The pain you’re enduring is a cry for help and where there is smoke, there is fire. Medicating with strong pain killers blows away the smoke, but lets the fire blaze on unattended. The best way to put it out is through Chiropractic adjustment. Empowering Wellness is about more than just mending your spine; our goal is to maximise your quality of life and ability to self-heal. Through gentle care and controlled therapeutic spinal manipulation, a chiropractic appointment will do more than just eliminate your backpain.
Our accomplished chiropractors focus on the relationship between your body and your nervous system. The nervous system connects body and brain, allowing them to communicate. Freeing up your unhappy vertebrae enables constructive communication between body and mind. This effectively tackles poor digestion, performance, sleep and energy levels too!
So, whether you’re athletic, a worried parent, or just suffering unnecessarily, Empowering Wellness will help you reach your holistic health goals. Book a chiropractic appointment with us today, and never look back!
