How Chiropractic Care Can Help This Winter

Let our chiropractors at Tannenbaum Chiropractic help you fight the pain and discomfort of whatever you are fighting, from the cold and flu to arthritis and chronic pain. We can help treat falls on ice and slick surfaces, snow sports injuries, and other joint and muscle stiffness and pain, whether as your primary source of treatment or in accompaniment to traditional medicine. Chiropractic care can even help you fight the symptoms of seasonal depression.

How can an adjustment fight pain from different sources? 

  • Joint pain: Joint pain is often exacerbated by cold, wet weather due to joint fluid moving less freely, making the joints stiffer and pain during movement. In addition, muscles contract with the cold and become less mutable. This is one way your body tightens up to preserve the heat within. Chiropractic adjustments allow your muscles to loosen and relax, your joints to release and the fluid within to move freely, and most of all, help to reduce pain.
  • Seasonal cold and flu: Winter is cold and flu season, as well as a season filled with holiday gatherings. With the holidays right around the corner, you may also be feeling stressed, sleep-deprived, and emotional, leading to a compromised immune system that can’t help you fight off viruses and germs. Spinal adjustments via chiropractic care helps to keep the nervous system in optimal communication, specifically the immune system. Immune system upkeep will help you fight the cold and flu and any other germs you face this holiday season.
  • Winter sports injuries: Injury prevention and recovery often involve several modes of treatment, from traditional medicine to preventive care. You can help to loosen up before a big ski or snowboarding trip with a trip to the chiropractor, and if you do get injured, chiropractic care can help you heal faster and with less discomfort. Chiropractic care helps the body heal naturally without invasive procedures or medicine. Your adjustments can help with misalignments or dislocation and can be a great addition to other medical treatments after a fall or impact.
  • Seasonal Affective Disorder: Lessened sunlight exposure, cold temperatures, dark days, and holiday stress can cause or trigger Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). SAD can lead to reduced energy, lack of motivation, disinterest, and similar feelings to standard depression. Chiropractic adjustments can help fight SAD by stimulating the nervous system which helps to regulate hormone production. Hormone regulation helps to raise levels of serotonin and balance melatonin, both of which are affected by SAD. With spinal adjustments, your body’s central nervous system can better communicate with your brain, helping to regulate your mood and emotions.
