"Chiropractic and the Southern California Lifestyle"
by Irma Juarez Drew D. C.
There is a balance to a costal life style. Work and Play. Health and Fun. Many of the active Southern California residents are using chiropractic to balance their personal health. People are making proactive choices when it comes to combating pain. Chiropractic has been an effective first defense from pain, and in many cases a delay or circumvention from opioids or surgical procedures. Whether your pain is the result of a sports injury from an activity like CrossFit, or just working around the house chiropractic is the smart choice.
The vertebrae in a human spine are essential for mobility. These vertebrae also encase and protect the body’s delicate nervous system. This is the same system that controls muscles, tissues and even critical organs. There is no separating spinal health from body health.
When the spine begins to lose its mobility, it will affect the surrounding muscles, tendons and ligaments not to mention the adjacent nerve roots. Symptoms are indicators and / or warning signs that something is not right. Chiropractic care can investigate these symptoms, help determine the cause and recommend a treatment protocol that best suits the patient.
It is advisable to see a chiropractor even in the absence of symptoms. It is always best to maintain the body before it begins to break down. Chiropractic care can help with everyday activities and can improve overall performance in athletic activities. More importantly, it can help prevent injuries by maintaining healthy movement patterns. Prevention is always the key to optimal health.
