There are not many places on earth quite like Asheville, NC. It is the highest city of its size east of the Mississippi River. The tallest mountains in the Appalachians surround the region and have a prominent place in the skyline. Within just a short drive from downtown, there are more miles to hike than you could do in a lifetime, not to mention world-class mountain biking trail systems. As spring unfolds residents enjoy getting on the greenways and seeing an array of wildflowers and wildlife. In the summer you can grab a tube, kayak, canoe, or raft and float down the many rivers and creeks. In the fall, you can see one of the best displays of changing colors in the state, while in winter, we can enjoy the two most southern ski resorts.
People love to visit and live in our area because it is so conducive to living an active and healthy lifestyle. However, that activity can take a toll on your body. You may work in an office or have a job that requires staring at a computer, phone, or tablet for hours each day. That can lead to poor posture habits that exasperate back, joint, and muscle pain. Chiropractic care can be combined with therapeutic exercises to help improve pain and stay active.
