How Can Teachers Benefit from Chiropractic Care

It’s no secret that teachers are the foundation of learning for our children. They work tirelessly to create a safe, healthy environment for our children each and every day (whether it be virtual at this moment or in the physical classroom).

They’re usually in the classroom early setting things up and stay late long after the kids have gone home. The long hours and true effort (not just physically, but emotionally) given by teachers is truly admirable.

With all the giving that teachers do on a daily basis, the last thing that they’re thinking about is their spines! Fortunately, chiropractic care can help teachers become the healthiest versions of themselves, in many different ways. We’ve highlighted the top 4 for you here:

1. Chiropractic Care Can Ease Neck Pain, Back Pain & Headaches

 Long hours of lesson planning and grading papers, as well as physically standing and educating students, puts a strain on the neck and lower back, ultimately leading to tension, stiffness and pain. We often see teachers in the office with headaches, neck pain, backpain, wrist pain, foot pain, knee pain and leg pain (amongst many others).

Regular maintenance chiropractic care can keep the joints in the spine and muscles moving properly, thus preventing the building up of tension, which often leads to pain and headaches. Additionally, we teach you proper at-home stretches and exercises to do in between treatments, which really make a world of difference.

2. Chiropractic Care Reduces Stress

Although being a teacher is arguably one of the most rewarding careers around, it can certainly be stressful! Add in Covid-19, virtual learning, face masks, social distancing and you have a recipe for some serious stress.

Receiving regular adjustments helps the body and mind relax and ease tension, thus reducing stress. When we are less stressed, we sleep better and, not to mention, have more energy for the classroom!

3. Chiropractic Care Improves Posture

Posture is certainly compromised on a daily basis for teachers, especially those that instruct young children. They’re constantly hunched over or kneeling and bending to communicate with little ones. This can truly take a toll on their posture, ultimately leading to aches and pain.

Yet again, chiropractic care is here to help! Regular adjustments, along with specific exercises and stretches can make all the difference in a patient’s posture, especially that of a teacher! Chiropractors will also teach proper ergonomics for teachers, whether it be while sitting at the desk grading papers or crouching down to play with a small child. 

4. Chiropractic Care Can Improve Overall Health & Wellness

What is the goal for any of us seeking out health & wellness services? To decrease PAIN?! Add YEARS to our life?! BOTH certainly are valid motivators! We all want to do what we love for as long as we can! And we all know teachers LOVE what they do!

Although LIFE can be crazy and overwhelming (especially in 2021 for teachers) the end goal for most is to add YEARS TO OUR LIFE & LIFE TO OUR YEARS! This is a core concept of long-term chiropractic wellness care!

Many would argue “NO PAIN = NO PROBLEM”. This could NOT be more INACCURATE! Sometimes there can be significant spinal problems: herniated discs, degenerative changes/arthritis, etc. that are NOT painful at all! This is why most people ignore pain until they are crawling into a chiropractic office or other doctor’s office! Teachers are prone to these ailments due to the physical and mental strain of their professions.

For many people that embark on preventative care with chiropractic they are usually rewarded with healthy spines and joints in the long term. When you use chiropractic care as a preventative measure, pain can be avoided & it may help to slow down the natural wear and tear of our spines. Research has shown that chiropractic care can help to improve circulation & improve overall health & function of our bodies.

So remember it’s a marathon NOT a sprint! Implement lifestyle changes to help add years to your life and think about not only the short-term pain, but the LONG-TERM goals!

Are you a teacher? Are you considering chiropractic care? The aforementioned benefits should give you all the more reason to contact your local chiropractor (or if you live in Miami, give us a call) and start living a healthier life today!
