Are you dealing with limited range of motion problems, such not being able to move or extend your left arm like before. Your mobility can be affected over time due to aging, bad posture, obesity or an accident. Loss of mobility can affect the quality of your life in so many ways and can eventually even lead to pain issues. That’s where chiropractic care can play a vital role.
As the causes show, lack of mobility can happen to anyone. Neglecting exercise and stretching can make a 35 year old walk and move worse than an 85 year old. Many people dealing with joint immobility seek chiropractic care to relieve tension and any pain they may be feeling.
Chiropractic treatment will first work on addressing the root of the problem by making patients do certain movements. Chiropractic adjustments will not always be necessary when it comes to mobility issues. Instead, a chiropractor will focus on restoring mobility and eliminating pain if there is any, with recommended methods, exercises and stretches.
Along with chiropractic care, one must take self-initiative to have good habits, such as practicing good posture and having a good diet. For example, sitting for long periods of times may be what led to your lack of mobility in the first place, so continuing to sit for long periods will only continue to affect mobility. In these instances a chiropractor might recommend getting up, stretching, and walking a bit every hour of sitting, for those with desk jobs.
Along with joint immobility, the other types of issues chiropractic care can treat are:
- Neck pain
- Back pain
- Muscle tightness
- Bulging and herniated disc
