No matter your profession, it takes a toll on your spine
Whether you are a professional runner or you sit all day at a computer; whether you bend over cars or work in a hospital; whether you are in a factory or in a forest, your job is going to extract a cost from your spine. For so many of us, productivity means pain. For the office worker, the added compression of sitting leaves you stiff and sore on your commute home. For someone who is on their feet, or bending over often, the spine is at elevated risk of injury from flexion of the spine. Taking the pain out of your workday means being proactive about prevention.
Productivity doesn't have to mean pain
At your Dunedin chiropractor, we have worked with patients from the entire spectrum of employment. The trick is for you to come visit us before your pain becomes a problem. For most of us it starts with stiffness and soreness that is easy to ignore; so we ignore it. And over time the cause of this pain degrades your spine until it becomes an injury, at which point the pain takes a more central role in your life. Even then, we are able to ignore it; the human body and brain persist in compartmentalizing pain so that you can get on with being productive. Money speaks over your spine's pain. Our goal is to prevent it from getting to this point.
A tailored plan for your spine and your job
To the chiropractor, the spine comes first. Your wellbeing is more important to us than your job. But we also know that your job contributes to your wellbeing by providing financial security. Our goal is to prioritize the health of your spine so you can get on with your daily life. We work with you to create a tailored plan that includes: chiropractic attention to align your spine, alleviate nerve impingement and correct muscular imbalance; and lifestyle adjustments that allow you to remain proactive even while you work.
