June is filled with quite a few awareness events to recognize the amazing men in our lives, including Father’s Day, Universal Father’s Week, Men’s Health Awareness Week, and Men’s Health Month. I’d like to especially recognize men’s health this month. Many don’t think about all the components of their health and oftentimes, men try to power through pains, aches, and soreness without speaking to a healthcare professional about it. Check out some of the benefits of chiropractic care for men’s health and why it’s so important to take care of your body in every way.
Relieve and Prevent Back Pain
Sore and stiff backs are common feelings amongst almost all of us. However, through a unique treatment plan, chiropractic care at Active Health KC can help relieve and even prevent back pain that you might be experiencing from work, cleaning up the yard, or playing with the kids.
While you may not mean to, you might frequently slouch throughout the day, especially when sitting. Hunching or slouching for prolonged periods of time can lead to pain, soreness, and stiffness in your shoulders, neck, and back. Chiropractic care along with recommended exercises and stretches can especially help with this problem. In-office chiropractic care, along with any exercises and stretches within a treatment plan, will help build strength in your neck and back muscles to help improve poor posture in the long run.
Better Sleep Quality
Sleep-related issues can often be traced back to stress, pain, and discomfort. Chiropractic care and treatment can improve your nervous system’s function, leading to better breathing and better sleep quality overall.
Maximize Range of Motion
Having a desk job can lead to decreased mobility and range of motion in your muscles and joints. Chiropractic treatment can improve your range of motion in two ways; by strengthening your core muscles to properly aligning your spine, and to relieve pains that would otherwise restrict motion.
Receive Expert Health Advice
Receiving care from a chiropractor like myself is more than just aligning your spine or relieving your achy joints. I take a comprehensive approach when I help people, so I am able to provide support and advice regarding health choices men can make to live the life they want to for longer.
For Men’s Health Month, and all year round, too, I highly encourage you to make sure you pay attention to your health and deal with any health problems before they get worse. If you’re dealing with pain or discomfort, call for your free phone consultation or book your first appointment online, so you can live the life you want, pain-free.
