Chiropractic is a health care discipline which emphasizes the inherent recuperative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery.
We will give you some lifestyle advice to minimize the risk of spinal injury and that includes standing up slowly rather than quickly, as the delay can give the blood vessels more time to constrict properly; taking a deep breath and flex your abdominal muscles while rising to maintain blood and oxygen in the brain; maintaining an elevated salt intake, through sodium supplements or electrolyte-enriched drinks and maintaining a proper fluid intake among many other advices
A non-neutral spine leads to "improper posture, [that] especially when walking, puts increased stress on your back and causes discomfort and damage." When the spine is left in non-neutral posture for extended periods of time, it raises the diaphragm, preventing the body from taking a full breath. This can lead to reduced oxygenation throughout the body. It can also compromise the internal organs' performance by putting pressure throughout the abdomen. People who sit for long hours on the job are susceptible to a number of mis-alignments.
Massage is the manipulation of superficial layers of muscle and connective tissue to enhance the function and promote relaxation and well-being. The word comes from the French massage "friction of kneading", or from Arabic massa meaning "to touch, feel or handle" or from Latin massa meaning "mass, dough". In distinction the ancient Greek word for massage was anatripsis, and the Latin was frictio.
