While this is an exciting time of year, it can also be a difficult time for those suffering from chronic pain.

Holiday hustle and bustle often leads to stress that can wreak havoc on the body. Rather than relying on pain medication to get through, maintain your health and wellness with chiropractic care. There are 5 main benefits of seeing a chiropractor before year’s end.

1. Tension Relief

It’s no secret the holidays are a busy time of year. Many of us overcommit ourselves to attend parties, host relatives for an extended stay or volunteer at the local holiday festival. When there is so much to do yet so little time, our health can suffer.

As a result of poor eating habits, lack of exercise and sleep, you may experience muscle tension, headaches, stomach problems or overall body pain, which can put a damper on your holiday cheer. Chiropractic care can address your pain and keep the body in working order.

2. Better Travel Experiences

Whether you will be sitting in a car, on a plane or a train, these sitting positions are often uncomfortable. Prolonged sitting can cause back and neck pain that will continue long after you arrive at your destination, perhaps caused by a pinched nerve or bulging disc.

Before you depart, work with a chiropractor to strengthen the body. If you return with any discomfort, gentle adjustments can realign the spine and relieve tension in the muscles.

3. Cold & Flu Prevention

Weather changes, being among crowds of people and lack of vitamin D can make us more vulnerable to sickness. You need a strong immune system to ward off the common cold; did you know optimal spine health can positively impact your immune health?

Regular chiropractic adjustments also benefit the nervous system and release toxins from the body.

4. Accident Prevention

Injuries are often the result of misused muscle groups. For instance, if you shovel snow or lift heavy boxes of decorations without using your knees as a base of support, you could throw your back out.

The sooner you see a chiropractor to correct the damage, the better. Gentle adjustments help the healing process and future injury prevention.

5. Prepare For the New Year

Pain, stiff muscles and restricted movement don’t have to follow you into the New Year! After several weeks of stress on the body, including overindulgence in food and alcohol, chiropractic care purifies your system.

Our team focuses on the wholistic health of patients, also providing nutritional advice. Whether you want to eat healthier or start a new workout plan with a strong body, we can help you safely reach those goals.

"I'm a very active individual and lower back pain was getting in the way of activities I love. While my back is still a work in progress, the time spent with Dr. D has been well worth it. I just ran 2 marathons in 2 weeks and these sessions helped me run these races with no back pain."

"Dr DeFrancesco is an amazing Chiropractor. I have been seeing him for my entire life, and my parents used to drive all the way from Albany NY just to make sure I was able to be seen by Dr D. His genuine desire to make sure you maximize your health is inspiring, and the fact that he clearly practices what he preaches really motivates you. His enthusiasm is infectious and you can't help but leave his office smiling. I would definitely recommend Dr DeFrancesco to everyone."

"I started my chiropractic journey a few weeks before having my 3rd baby. They were amazing, patient and gentle during the pregnancy. They weren't pushy when I took my time, post pregnancy, to come back. They were amazing with my schedule and did everything to work with me. I felt so comfortable with them that I brought my new born baby and my 3 year old in to get adjusted!"
