Significant adoption in post-Covid chiropractic care
Auckland Chiropractors have seen an increase in the number of patients seeking chiropractic care since the Covid-19 pandemic hit New Zealand shores last year. Two main causes linked to this increase are the increase in the number of people working from home and the increase in stress levels in general.
For the most part, office spaces tend to be better equipped to provide ergonomic support for employees, as they generally provide employees with good seating, good lighting, office space, and areas of movement. The transition to working from home means that many people who don’t have fully-equipped home offices now have to settle for less ergonomic options, like sitting at a dining table or in a less office chair. comfortable.
This has led to more people suffering from joint pain related to poor posture, headaches, and general stiffness. These issues further combined with increased stress levels during the pandemic brought on by being locked up for months, navigating new work environments and experiencing general emotional distress, leading to a more patients to seek the services of chiropractors.
Although chiropractic treatment remains controversial, there is evidence that a well-trained and qualified chiropractor can help relieve back and neck pain, release excessive tension in the body, reduce headache symptoms, and improve general posture. The relief of the associated pain and stress, in turn, can promote an overall improvement in health and well-being. A good chiropractor is also likely to supplement their treatments with other useful alternatives, such as acupuncture, Tai Chi, or other forms of maintenance and stretching exercises. One caveat in seeking chiropractic treatment is that a patient should not have any underlying problems such as osteoporosis, bone or joint cancer, or the like.
Considering the detrimental effects of taking long-term pain relievers and the negative health impact of not treating the pain, as well as the additional expense of regular doctor visits or even surgery, the treatment chiropractic care can offer a generally safe and beneficial alternative for many Aucklanders. .
