Most people know to go to the chiropractor if their back hurts.  Or if they suffer from aches and pains.  Or if they have a sore neck or shoulder.

But there are many people whose primary complaint isn’t pain.

It’s stiffness.

What can you do about stiffness and the feeling of being limited?

Does moving around feel more difficult than it used to be?  Are there things you used to enjoy that now seem like “too much?”  Do you feel sore, “worn-out” and stiff?

Living an active lifestyle, maintaining social relationships and a healthy family life are all important factors towards well-being.

It’s insidious how we can slowly lose our full range of movement.  If it happens gradually enough, we don’t even notice we’re losing it.  Also, well-meaning people believe unfortunate myths:  “discomfort is normal,” “there’s nothing you can do about it.”

If your primary complaint is stiffness, you may feel that you are missing out on things you used to enjoy. You want to enjoy hobbies like gardening or sports.  Your children and grandchildren want to play with you.  You want to lead an active social life.  It’s important to you to stay in shape.

There is something you can do to improve your flexibility.

Regular chiropractic care can increase your flexibility.  It can address strains and injuries sooner rather than later.  It can also help to prevent problems down the road.  In addition, chiropractic care can make moving around more comfortable.  In conclusion, chiropractic care can support you while you lead an active lifestyle.

Speak to your chiropractor about your concerns.  Then we can test your balance.  We can also suggest stretches and exercises geared to your unique needs.

Chiropractic care can help to safeguard your independence.  It can support your quality of life by making it easier for you to get around and do the things that you find meaningful.

Don’t resign yourself to a lifetime of stiffness and limited range of motion.  In summary, live your best life and take action to improve your health.
