Snowzilla Hits the D.C. Area, Thousands of Low Back Casualties Not Reported

Posted by on Wed, Jan 27, 2016

After a big storm everybody has to go out into the cold and do hard labor. Shovel full after shovel full of snow being thrown onto a big pile so we can get to our cars, get the kids to school or even just open the front door. Unfortunately, shoveling snow is not a normal movement for us and can result in injuries we should not ignore, but many of us do. As soon as the pain hits, we start to get those loving reminders from our spouses to go have it looked at, but most of the time it falls on deaf ears. Some ibuprofen, Tylenol, heat and rest is what most people do. Then a week later you may be feeling OK. If it doesn’t go away most people continue to tolerate it until it resolves on its own or turns into something worse, and that can be a mistake.

Should you be seeing a chiropractor?

In the September 2011 issue of Consumer Reports  an article was written entitled “Alternative  Therapies” in which 45,000 readers tell you what helped the most with their health issues. 

Here are the results:

Chiropractic  ranked 1st in back pain and neck pain, 3rd in headaches/migraines.  Chiropractic was also ranked 3rd and 4th in Osteoarthritis and Fibromyalgia, respectively.  Even more interesting, chiropractic was ranked in 2nd in Cold & Flu and 3rd for Allergies. 

So what does this have to do with you?

Chiropractic care can help your health tremendously!  People are using chiropractic for medical conditions like back and neck pain, but they are also using it to treat a variety of other health issues like carpal tunnel, plantar fasciitis and temporal mandibular dysfunction (TMD.)  Also, you don’t have to see a chiropractor just for pain; it is also used for preventative care.

Chiropractic is More Mainstream than Alternative

Chiropractic is mainstream in healthcare now!  I’ve watched Chiropractic use increase in the past 15 years on the East Coast.  I’m excited to see people learn more about chiropractic and use it for a variety of issues.  But I am even more excited when I see people who thought that they were just going to have to live with their health conditions decide to utilize chiropractic and then improve to the point where they feel normal again.  All because they made the choice to get chiropractic care and receive it’s benefits.
