Don’t Fear the Chiropractor!

Modern chiropractic practice has its roots in the 1890s, but the idea that the alignment of our bodies impacts overall health dates back millennia. Over the last few decades, chiropractic care has become an accepted and vital component in maintaining healthy lifestyles and treating injuries or chronic conditions.

It still, however, remains one of the lesser-known disciplines in the healthcare profession. And what we don’t know, we tend to fear. 

Here in western North Carolina, health and wellness are a priority for most residents. We want to stay fit and mobile for exploring the hundreds of thousands of acres of protected forests, pristine rivers and creeks, and the charming mountain towns surrounding Asheville. There is a lot to do in our area, so people do their best to eat well and stay active. 

One of the ways you can improve your health and wellness is by visiting your trusted chiropractor. However, there is a lot of mystery and misinformation about chiropractic care. Many people don't know much about chiropractors and the care they provide. So, when trying to figure out whether or not a person should visit a chiropractor, the lack of clarity can make it challenging to arrive at the right answer. 

The holidays are a special time here in western North Carolina. If you drive around Asheville, you will see spectacular displays of lights and decorations throughout our area as people get into the spirit of the season. The chill in the air is a reminder that Christmas and the New Year are almost upon us.

Of course, after the holiday season is over, you take the tree down and discard all the wrapping paper, and settle in for a long, cold winter. For the French Broad River Valley, there will be some days of relative warmth and sunshine, despite our mountainous terrain. 

However, the higher elevations near the Tennessee border can see feet of snow pile up through April, even if no one else is experiencing winter weather.

Residents of Asheville are people who care about health and wellness. The new year is often a time to renew exercise and nutrition goals, but the cold months are a challenging time to feel motivated to get moving. Furthermore, many people experience pain and discomfort when the mercury drops.

If you want to stay healthy this winter, here's how your chiropractor can help.
