Posted by Cobb Chiropractic Clinic on Jun 10, 2019 5:01:17 PM

In a perfect world, there would be no back pain.

We could sit at our desks all day at work with no negative consequences.

We wouldn't have to worry about proper lifting techniques.

And our backs wouldn't get worse with age, making our golden years more enjoyable.

Unfortunately, our world isn't perfect. And back pain is very real.

If we sit at our desks for hours on end, we will most definitely suffer from it.

Lift with your back and not your legs, and you're in for a rough few days.

And, unfortunately, our backs break down as we get older because they are at the center of almost every movement.

Life, in general, tends to impose forces of movement that can take one or more vertebrae out of ideal, centered alignment.

In the chiropractic world, a misalignment of vertebrae in relation to the next vertebrae is called a subluxation.

In the article below, you will learn everything you need to know about subluxations.

How Does Whiplash Affect The Rest Of Your Body?

Posted by Cobb Chiropractic Clinic on Jun 10, 2019 5:00:55 PM

If you've ever been in a car accident, you likely sustained some type of injury.

Even the most insignificant fender benders can cause some type of damage to your body.

Luckily, most of them aren't serious, but the damage has still been done.

Sometimes you think you've escaped without injury, but hours, or even days later you start developing symptoms that you haven't noticed up until that point.

That's why it's always important to seek medical attention after an accident, no matter how you feel.

When you're involved in an accident, your endorphins and the flow of adrenaline can prevent you from feeling any pain immediately after the fact.

Serious injuries can go undetected until the body has had a chance to return to its normal state.

One of the most common injuries you can sustain during your accident, that can also go unnoticed, is whiplash.

Whiplash frequently occurs in car accidents because of the sudden impact that accompanies them.

Most people think whiplash only affects your neck.

It does affect your neck, but it can also affect you in many more ways.

In the article below we will learn about whiplash, and how it affects your body.

 From the second we step foot in kindergarten, we are groomed to find a good job.

When we enter the workforce, our job will take up the vast majority of our time.

On the minimum, we will spend 40 hours and five days a week at our job. And that's usually low balling it for most of us.

We see our bosses and co-workers more than we see our families.

So it is extremely important to find a job that is fulfilling, and one that fills all of our needs.

From kindergarten to high school, to college, we are on a quest to find that right job, the right career, that will satisfy us emotionally and financially.

Choosing the wrong job can have dire consequences.

It can leave us unfulfilled wanting more out of life.

It can leave us financially dependent on other jobs or government assistance because it doesn't pay enough.

Those are obvious drawbacks to finding the wrong job.

Did you know working the wrong job can also shorten our life expectancy, as well as making us sick while we're alive?

Actually, even if we love our job, it could have those adverse effects on us.

Below, we'll talk about those effects and what causes them.
