While we continue stay home under the extended provincial state of emergency, there are a number of factors that are probably contributing to your experience of pain. These can include:
1. Positions of poor posture
2. Poor workspace ergonomics
3. Flare ups of chronic conditions or old injuries
4. Stress and Anxiety
5. Not moving as much as we used to.
Research has shown that regular Chiropractic Care can help to mitigate the symptoms that show up as a result of the above mentioned factors. So when you can't get out to get your manual therapy and adjustments, the Canadian Chiropractic Guideline Initiative has provided a number of other ways to keep you healthy and safe while you stay at home.
Taking care of any painful conditions requires a combination of 4 things:
1. Manual Therapy
2. Corrective Exercises
3. Professional Advice & Education
While manual therapy remains available on an emergency or acute case basis, the other 3 are readily available and we are here to help you!
