Today’s lifestyles often require us to be running from one thing to the next in hopes of accomplishing everything we need to get done. To get us through our busy days we are often left reaching for another cup of caffeine, yet still finding ourselves feeling tired and fatigued. For some, this busy lifestyle leaves little time for sleep, especially good quality sleep. A good night’s sleep is not only essential to helping us get through our busy lives, but also for maintaining good health.
Prenatal massage is therapeutic bodywork that focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of pregnancy. It enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone, and relieves mental and physical fatigue. Prenatal massage can ease discomfort associated with pregnancy, help the mother-to-be prepare for labor and give her nurturing emotional support.
Hip pain is one of the most common symptoms we see as chiropractors. The hips carry a lot of weight and are very mobile joints, a combination that often leads to joint dysfunction and muscle imbalances. These two problems can commonly cause pain and other symptoms. However, not all symptoms that feel like they are coming from the hip, actually stem from hip-related issues. Being able to identify where your pain is coming from is an important step in understanding the underlying cause and ultimately correcting the problem.
