Our bodies and the ways they move are beautiful, but over time, aging, injuries and lifestyle choices can diminish our range of motion. When this happens, simply bending to tie our shoes or pick up a dropped object can be difficult and painful. If you find simple movements becoming more and more challenging, chiropractic can help.
Difficulty with Daily Activities
A diminishing range of motion can affect so many daily activities, from brushing your teeth, driving your car and washing your hair. To do these daily activities, your joints have to move freely. That includes joints in your shoulders, neck, knees, wrists, elbows and more. If you are suffering from a degenerative condition or an injury in one or more of these joints, doing these routine activities can become quite painful and difficult.
Range of Motion and the Spine
A reduced range of motion in the spine can affect your daily life. Conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, back pain and headaches can start in the spine, and when your range of motion decreases, your discomfort will increase. When your spine is properly aligned, you’ll be able to do more and more with less discomfort.
How Chiropractic Can Help
Our team here at Forgey Chiropractic works wonders when it comes to boosting your spine’s range of motion. Our treatments can help improve nerve impingement, restore healthy blood flow and realign your discs to increase range of motion and decrease pain. We may also recommend specific exercises or stretches to lengthen your tendons and ligaments and strengthen supporting muscles to further restore your range of motion.
