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!
