Should I See A Chiropractor When I'm Sick?

on Sep 8, 2020 10:16:50 AM By | Florida Spine and Injury | 0 Comments | sick
You wouldn't cancel an appointment with your general practitioner when you're sick, so you shouldn't cancel your chiropractic appointment.    Right?   You may be inclined to call and cancel because you rightfully don't want to spread the germs.   However, it's far better that you come in to see the chiropractor and receive your adjustment.    Your overall health, as well as your body's ability to heal quickly and efficiently, are made up of many moments of beneficial choices.    So maybe the question shouldn't be should you see a chiropractor when your sick, but is it beneficial to get adjusted while sick?  All the evidence points to it being very beneficial.   People commonly miss appointments for their chiropractic adjustment because they're sick.    However, your chiropractic adjustment might help you get over the sickness faster, so you don't want to miss your appointment.   If you're sick, just let your chiropractor know beforehand, and maybe wear a surgical mask to stifle the flow of germs.   In the article below, we will talk more about why you shouldn't cancel your chiropractic appointment if you're sick.

Can I Give Myself A Chiropractic Adjustment?

on Aug 31, 2020 4:01:38 PM By | Florida Spine and Injury | 0 Comments | Chiropractic Adjustment
Everyone will likely experience back or neck pain to some extent during their life.  And if you have chronic joint immobility, it can eventually progress to pain and inflammation in the joints.  Having pain in your neck or back and having it treated with a chiropractic adjustment before it becomes a chronic condition is in your best interest. But, some people want to skip the office visit and often wonder if they can adjust themselves.  The easiest answer to this question is no. Self chiropractic isn't possible; chiropractors can't even adjust themselves. Most people are under the assumption that a chiropractic adjustment is just "cracking" your back.   But those people don't understand the purpose that the adjustment serves. But when your neck gets stiff, or your back starts to ache, all you want is some quick relief from your joint pain.  So you twist your neck to the left, lower your shoulder down to the right, hoping for that familiar popping sound.  And when it pops, you feel some relief. But self-manipulation only offers short-term relief that doesn't address the cause of your pain. In the article below, we will discuss why you can't adjust yourself and why a chiropractic adjustment is more than cracking your joints.

Why Does My Neck Crack When I Roll It?

on Aug 19, 2020 10:07:18 AM By | Florida Spine and Injury | 0 Comments | neck crack
At one point or another, we have all tried to crack our neck by rolling it. And, we've all experienced the cracking sound or popping noise after we've done it.  Generally speaking, this is expected, and it's similar to cracking our knuckles. Some people do it because it provides an instant relief caused by the loosening of our joints. If you do this, you likely don't think about it too much and do it out of habit. When you crack your joints, the popping, cracking, and stretching sounds are due to a release of oxygen that has accumulated between your joints and ligaments. The medical term for these cracking sounds is cavitation.  When you feel relief after cracking the joints in your cervical spine, it's due to an increase in your range of motion. This relief can be amplified if it's caused by physical activity or exercise.  As long as you don't experience any discomfort when you crack your neck, there usually isn't anything to worry about.  However, always use caution if you crack your neck or any other joint, so you don't damage the joint. In some cases, however, popping and cracking in the neck may call for a trip to see your chiropractor. In the article below, we'll talk about why your neck cracks when it rolls, and when you may need to see a chiropractor.
