Pain Compromises your Range of Motion

Chiropractic is about improving range of motion

When your body is crying out in pain, an easy thing to forget is that pain compromises your range of motion. Because your body is seeking a fix for the pain, it is easy to ignore the restriction in mobility that is happening simultaneously. Following logic, our mission as chiropractors is to determine and correct the true root of your back pain- this is the most effective way to start improving range of motion and flexibility. And once we have mitigated pain, a healthy cycle occurs: range of motion returns, allowing you to stretch and stregthen without pain, which in turn boosts range of motion further. 


Losing range of motion is a step on the path towards disability

When you feel pain in a certain part of your body you begin to favor that part and avoid moving it too much. By not activating the associated muscles, they weaken from lack of use, adding to the spiral of instability that leads toward disability. Rather than letting muscles and joints stiffen from lack of use, choose to solve your problem at its root and begin improving mobility today.

Restoring range of motion in Hackensack

As part of your chiropractic treatment, we perform spinal adjustments that realign the bones and joints in the spine. This effects a tremendous domino effect- by relieving nerves from painful compression, pain is reduced. This allows you to move in areas that were previously painful, restoring range of motion and thus improving flexibility. From here, we work on maintaining balance and stability of the spine by conditioning the supportive muscles to keep your spine in alignment. Don’t let yourself become disabled.  Give our office in Hackensack a call to schedule an appointment and start moving better today!
