The Point of Perfect Posture
We hear it all the time. “Sit up straight.” “Fix your posture.” “Stand up tall.” But why is posture so important?
Your body is structured so each bone stacks on top of the other, with your head resting directly on your spine. When your posture is poor, your weight is no longer carried by your bones. Instead, the weight is forced to be carried by your muscles. This results in tension and joint pressure which affects you not only physically but emotionally, causing any number of problems ranging from the predictable shoulder and back pain to headaches and depression.
Correcting bad posture can be critical to improving your mental, physical, and emotional health. Correcting posture can be achieved through exercises, stretches, chiropractic adjustments, and even kinesiotaping.
Come on in and see how we can help you improve your posture and health!

Acupuncture Works at Zion Chiropractic

Acupuncture is a very effective modality for the treatment of pain and painful conditions.  At Zion Chiropractic we have seen acupuncture effectively treat a great many chronic and acute pain conditions.
5 ways that acupuncture treats pain:

     • Breaks up scar tissue

      • Promotes blood circulation

      • Stimulates the immune system

      • Relaxes muscles and tendons

      • Produces endorphins, (natural pain killers)
Acupuncture for pain management has been used for centuries. Acupuncture treats the whole body; relieving pain and helping tissue recover so that pain doesn’t return. This results in a stronger body more resistant to future injuries. The relaxing effects of acupuncture also stimulate the immune system, further speeding recovery.

Acupuncture helps relieve pain through several different mechanisms. Acupuncture needles promote blood circulation which stimulates tissue regeneration. This results in a faster and more effective recovery. Acupuncture also triggers the nervous system, interrupting the pain pathways and stopping the inflammation cascade that sends out pain signals.   

Pain syndromes acupuncture treats:

      • Sciatica, back pain, knee pain, hip pain, sprains, strains

      • Tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, carpel tunnel syndrome

      • Neck pain, whiplash, headaches and migraine headaches

      • Arthritis, fibromyalgia, PMS pain, post surgical pain

Acupuncture is a very effective modality for chronic pain. It helps break up scar tissue and adhesions, reduces pain, and restores normal functionality and range of motion to joints and muscles. By increasing blood circulation and relaxing muscles and tendons, acupuncture can resolve long-standing chronic pain conditions.

Acupuncture is also a great option for acute pain and recent injuries. By decreasing local swelling and promoting circulation, immune cells vital for cleaning up damage and repairing tissue can quickly infiltrate the injured area and stimulate healing.

Back pain and neck pain are common complaints that we see here at Zion Chiropractic. Back and neck pain can be the result of sprains, hernias, degeneration and/or muscle spasms. Your
doctor has many options for these types of pain. They may combine Chiropractic, exercises, Kinesio tape, decompression, laser therapy, or physical modalities with the acupuncture treatment.
