Acute or chronic pain caused by a misaligned spine can feel debilitating, especially for the elderly. It limits your range of motion and can interfere with everyday activities. In turn, it can significantly decrease your quality of life. Apart from that, a misaligned spine can also affect your mood and sleeping patterns.
Several risk factors can lead to a misaligned spine. These include:
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Vehicular accidents
- Work-related injuries
- Improper lifting techniques at your work or the gym
- Poor posture
- Prolonged sitting or standing
- Repetitive physical tasks
A sedentary lifestyle is one of the most common reasons behind a misaligned vertebral column. The spine is built for movement and activity so if you’re always inactive, you may unintentionally be reducing your spine’s flexibility. Moreover, an inactive lifestyle could contribute to obesity. Putting on pounds could place more pressure on your spine, especially if you have poor posture.
Here at LifeClinic, our trained chiropractors perform spine alignment and manipulation to restore your health, maintain optimal well-being, and prevent your pain symptoms from reoccurring. We use non-invasive techniques to reposition your spine and return it to its optimal form. Before conducting any treatment, we assess your unique situation to identify the source of the pain.
