We all cope with aches and pains and bumps and bruises occasionally. Discomfort and stiffness can literally be a pain in the neck and impact our ability to tackle everyday tasks, sports, and hobbies. What causes neck pain - and what can you do to treat and prevent it?
A complex system of bones, ligaments, and muscles in your neck supports your head and gives you range of motion. Vertebrae extend from the base of your skull to your upper torso, and their job is to absorb shock between the bones, providing a cushion for the spinal column. It’s common to experience some pain or stiffness once in a while: even “sleeping wrong” or slumping can cause this.
Few small towns have the level of food, art, and culture that Elkin has. With a renovated local theater, world-class restaurants, pleasant walking, and sitting areas, and fascinating art, the downtown area is vibrant and bustling with plenty for residents and tourists. Situated in the foothills of western North Carolina, natural beauty surrounds our town’s rolling hills that provide the perfect vantage for viewing sunsets over the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains.
Autumn is approaching slowly this year with temperatures still in the 80s here in the foothills, but soon the landscape will transform into a fantastic display of color. Fall is the perfect time to get outside in Surry County. In this post, we will discuss six reasons why autumn is the season to start or continue your wellness plan by enjoying the great outdoors.
Elkin is a great place in which to live. In the foothills of North Carolina, the temperature is often several degrees cooler than Winston-Salem and Charlotte, but warmer in the winter than mountain towns like Boone and Sparta. We have beautiful views of the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains, and the Yadkin River separating downtown Elkin from Jonesville. Mountain biking, cycling and jogging on the greenways, and watersports like kayaking and tubing are popular pastimes in our area.
Elkin is an outdoor city with increasing awareness about health and wellness. Who doesn’t want to be healthier? Nevertheless, if you do want to improve your overall wellness, it can be difficult to figure out where to start. In this post, we are discussing how chiropractic care fits with your overall plan for health and wellness.
Do you ever have aches and pains? Do you suffer from seasonal allergies and sinus issues? Have you been in a car accident or experienced a sports injury? If so, chances are someone has recommended seeing a chiropractor. Tens of millions of Americans schedule chiropractic treatment at least once per year. 35 percent of those people are seeking relief from back pain.
You may be wondering what chiropractic care is, whether chiropractors are medically trained and professionally licensed, or whether seeing the chiropractor is safe. There is a lot of information and misinformation about who chiropractors are and what they do. In this article, we want to help you better understand what chiropractic care is and how it can help improve your overall health and wellness.
