Can Chiropractic Procedures Prevent/Alleviate Morning Stiffness Of the Neck and Back ?

Are you waking up each day with stiffness of neck and back? It is definitely an unpleasant experience wrecking your day from the onset. Thing is, there are numerous reasons why you may be stiff. Your pillow may have been too firm, too high, or too low. A cold wind may have caressed your neck upon waking up. You could have fallen asleep while watching TV and your head tilted to one side. Maybe you were using the laptop or iPad too long. And perhaps, it could have been from an accident, such as whiplash or a fall.

According to certain studies, chiropractic, the art of manipulation of the spine to alleviate problems, and rehabilitative exercises are effective in treating stiffness. Generally, the aim is to increase the flexibility and strength of your neck and back muscles. Because aside from stiffness of neck and back, weak neck muscles can cause fatigue, irritability, headaches, and loss of sleep. Your core muscles, the hip, the back, and the abdominal muscles, also play in on this. Non-use of these core muscles, can lead to back stiffness.

Simple exercises coupled with chiropractic are a good way to relieve daily nuances like stiffness of neck and back. The relief gives you piece of mind and a heightened sense of well being as you are no longer daunted with the pain and the inflexibility of your neck and back.  If massage therapy is also added to the stretches and chiropractic, you now have a powerful drug free alternative at your fingertips!  Don’t take our word for it, give it a try!
