The holiday season is one of many joys getting together with family, observing years of time-honored traditions, and celebrating with the people you care about.
However, we all know that with those delights also comes some stressful situations. It can be a time of anxiety and distraction crowded shopping malls, home preparations, financial concerns, and hours spent in cramped cars.
All of these things can cause more damage to our health and well-being than we realize. Having our spines out of alignment can affect us by causing headaches as well as upper and lower back pain. Often these symptoms are caused by subluxations, or misalignments, of the spine. These problems don’t just pass away with the holiday. Going unchecked over time they can have numerous and lasting effects to your spinal health.
