College Students Want To Know About Chiropractic

Share

College is often one of the most exciting times in a person’s life—but with all that excitement comes a surprising amount of physical stress. Sitting all day in classes, hunching over textbooks and laptops, even relaxing by watching videos on your phone or texting friends, all of these put constant strain on the spine that you may not be aware of. Chiropractic care can help alleviate the stress, relax the muscles and align the spine for optimal health, making it an ideal health solution for your college lifestyle.

How Chiropractic Care Supports Your College Lifestyle

There are a lot of ways that chiropractic can help you feel better and even perform better at college. A healthy body makes everything easier, and chiropractic is designed to aid in a healthy lifestyle.

Some of the ways chiropractic can help include:

1. Helping to heal the damage caused by extended sitting.

Sitting for long periods every day has been shown to increase the risk of death, and has been connected with a number of different health issues. The most important thing you can do each day is get up and move around every half hour or so, if possible.

But there is another thing you can do to address the tightness in soft tissues, compression of spinal discs and other effects sitting has on your body—get chiropractic adjustments. Regular adjustments realign your spine, reduce pressure on discs and help to relax the tightness in muscles and other soft tissues.

2. Helping to correct poor posture.

Studying and working on the computer for long periods of time can be exhausting, there is no denying. Unfortunately, as you get tired you tend to hunch and slouch in ways that are not good for your back and neck. While paying attention to your posture is important and can help somewhat, the reality is that no one can maintain the perfect posture for hours and hours.

By visiting your chiropractor, you can get much-needed adjustments to your back and neck that will help to correct damage caused by poor posture. Your chiropractor can also give you tips on how to maintain the best possible posture and ergonomics on a daily basis to minimize further damage.

3. Healing neck injuries like text neck.

According to recent research, looking down at your phone for an extended period of time is the equivalent of putting a 60-pound weight on your neck. As you go about your day, notice how often you are staring down at your phone.

Whether it is texting with friends, watching a video or looking something up, you spend a considerable amount of time with that 60-pound weight on your neck. If your neck hurts, it is easy to understand why.

Chiropractic care is an excellent way to heal neck injuries including those caused by text neck. Regular adjustments can bring back the space between your vertebrae and help your neck heal.

4. Maintaining general spinal health.

Whether you hit the gym every day, play sports, or try to never move from the couch, you are always putting pressure on your spine. Your chiropractor is trained to help you maintain spinal health in a variety of ways, including chiropractic adjustments and lifestyle advice concerning healthy movement. By developing a relationship with your chiropractor that includes regular visits for adjustments and consultations on spinal issues you are experiencing, you can enjoy much better spinal health.
