These past few weeks have been tough for all of us. Auburn Chiropractic Associates made the choice to shut our doors a few weeks ago to protect our clients and staff from the spread of the recent COVID-19 pandemic. After many weeks of monitoring the situation, we have made the decision to reopen our facility and are happy to begin serving our community again. Nothing matters more to us than the safety and well-being of each customer, so we have been hard at work to ensure that our reopening complies with CDC guidelines. We also encourage everyone to continue to follow the CDC recommended tips below to promote positive mental and physical care as the situation continues.
Pregnancy is one of the most extraordinary experiences that may occur in a woman's life. It is essential to take care of your body and growing baby during this time. Back pain is one of the most common problems during pregnancy. According to U.S. News, “50 to 70% of all women encounter back pain at some point during their pregnancy.”
The neck is the most flexible part of the spine and is responsible for holding and supporting the weight of the head, making it very vulnerable to injury. Neck pain has become a common complaint among people young and old. According to the US National Library of Medicine, up to 70% of adults will experience neck pain that interferes with daily activities. Neck pain can be caused by many different mechanisms such as: sleeping with too many pillows, poor posture, athletic and occupational stress, muscle strain and spasm and arthritic joints, also known as osteoarthritis. Since the neck is a delicate and complicated structure, contact a professional before trying home remedies if you have sustained an injury or have chronic unresolved neck pain. At Auburn Chiropractic Associations, we diagnose and treat neck injuries and assist you as you recover.
Each day our bodies are subject to many stressful activities..…mowing the lawn, lifting a box, walking to class, prolonged sitting at a desk, loading the dishwasher, mopping the floor, taking out the garbage, lifting the groceries, making the bed…just to name a few. While these tasks may seem small, they can have great impact on the spine, ultimately influencing your quality of life. It is important to learn to navigate daily tasks in a pain-free manner and without injuries in order to live life optimally. By implementing some small technical changes in your activities, you can protect your body and reduce the risk of injuries. As part of your treatment at Auburn Chiropractic Associates Dr. Hartford may discuss specific occupational and recreational risk management and promote preventive modifications to avoid injuries.
