Pro Tips to Keep Your Spinal Discs Healthy

Bottom Line:

Not everyone spends their entire week preparing to “play on Sunday.”

Our “big game” for the week is more likely to take place in a conference room or on a Zoom call than in a stadium.

Yes, most of us are probably not going to start our professional lives playing in the NFL - or the NBA, NHL, MLB, Premier League, Champions League, etc. (though you never know!).

Instead of lifting weights and working with the coach on a new play, your weekdays may be spent sitting at a desk performing mental jumping jacks for hours at a time.

And we can all agree that whether we’re working out or just working, it’s no fun doing it in pain!

Now, you may be wondering why we’re comparing professional athletes to “office” professionals.

Get this.

Research has shown that all the hours we spend sitting at our desks can place more stress on our spines than working out all day long!

Why it Matters:

So, it may be a bit too late to change careers and try out for a professional sports team.

But there are a few things you can do to stay healthy and productive while you work that professional athletes also do, and you can start right now!

Get active with daily exercise.

Practice daily light stretching.

Receive routine chiropractic care.

Together, each of these can help keep your spinal discs healthy and strong and take the stress off your spine.

Chiropractic adjustments can help bring valuable nutrients to those important spinal structures.

This, in turn, helps better facilitate the body’s healing processes, including flushing out any inflammatory substances that can cause pain. 

What’s more, researchers from SPINE found that periodic chiropractic care may be able to detect, evaluate, and prevent future episodes of work related neck and back pain.

To recap, here’s what you want to know about sitting and chiropractic care:

Sitting is one of the most stressful positions for your spine.

You can keep your spine healthy with a combination of daily exercise, daily light stretching, and routine chiropractic care.

Periodic chiropractic visits can also help evaluate, detect, and treat an emerging problem, thus preventing future episodes of low back pain.

Next Steps: 

We all dream of having those moments at work that are as thrilling and rewarding as catching the game-winning touchdown.

For you, performing at your peak might mean nailing that presentation at your next team meeting and then being able to celebrate with an activity you love.

Don’t let pain slow you down and keep you on the sidelines!

That’s where we come in.

If you’re looking for a chiropractor specializing in neck and back pain in Webster, we’re here to help.

Including chiropractic care  is one of the best ways to support your active lifestyle at work and beyond.

And if you’re also looking for some daily exercises and stretches to work into your daily routine, be sure to let us know.

Yes, we do that too, and Sea Lark Chiropractic is here for you!

  • "This was my first chiropractic visit and I will definitely continue to see Dr. Venessa! The space is beautiful and clean. The person working reception was welcoming, knowledgeable and seemed happy to answer my questions. I was able to complete my paperwork before coming in so there was no wait. Dr. Venessa asked me some questions and did a sort of assessment before my adjustment. She kept me informed of what she would be doing and has a nice bedside manner so nothing seemed awkward. She finished my adjustment and I checked out. All in all I had a great experience in the office but what happened after was even better- my energy increased like crazy! At first I didn’t even consider it might have been from my adjustment. I was just talking with my husband when he asked if I thought it may have been from my chiro appointment so I googled it and apparently that’s common! So again, very happy with my experience and I will be back!"
