Additional Workplace Tips to Improve Chiropractic Health


To further improve your health, make sure you don’t sit at your desk for hours. At least once per hour, you should get up and walk around, or do some stretching. Try to go for a walk if you’re able or find an offscreen task to keep your eyes fresh.

If you must sit for most of your workday, we know getting relief isn’t easy. You can’t just quit your job, and sometimes it can be difficult to find the time to stretch, take a break, or exercise.

Regular visits to the chiropractor can help correct many of the problems caused by excessive sitting and poor workspace ergonomics. Make time to schedule a complimentary consultation to see if specific structural chiropractic can help. Contact Dr. Gessert today to get started!

What’s the Difference Between Structural Chiropractic Care and Conventional Chiropractic Care?


Most Chiropractors you’ll find on your typical Google search are conventional chiropractors. They focus on reducing pain, inflammation, muscle spasms and increasing range of motion in joints.

They manage these health concerns with the use of general manipulations of the neck and spine. This is what most chiropractors offer in the way of care, and we believe that most of them do a great job at it.

As a Specific Structural Corrective Chiropractor, Dr. Gessert is dedicated to diagnosing and correcting the underlying cause of your condition.

Be Mindful of Poor Posture


Rounded shoulders or a hunched stance may seem like they’re set in stone by the time we
reach a certain age, but even if your posture has been a problem for years, it’s possible to make
improvements!

There are a few things you can do at home or at the office to make sure you’re sitting upright.

The key is making tine to strengthen muscles in your upper back, core, and chest.

Some exercises that will help improve core strength include:

  • Planks (hold a push-up position while propped up on your elbows, or high plank – holding the position on your hands)
  • Sit-ups and crunches to tighten your abdominal muscles

Pain Relief After a Car Accident


If you’re suffering from an auto accident, you might be surprised to learn that chiropractic care can provide a drug-free way to relieve your pain. For instance, if you have back pain or neck pain after being involved in a car accident, this could mean you have a spinal or whiplash injury.

According to the Insurance Research Council, “nearly one third of all claimants injured in motor vehicle accidents (MVAs) seek treatment from doctors of chiropractic.” According to a 2012 study on the Epidemiology of Whiplash, “manual therapy (i.e., cervical mobilization and or manipulation), together with exercise appear to be the most effective noninvasive treatments for patients with acute whiplash related neck pain.” 

The reason so many people choose to use chiropractic during their recovery process is because of its unique advantages in treating soft tissue injuries such ligament sprains and muscle strains of the spine.

If you’re suffering from an auto accident injury–regardless of whether it was a “fender bender” or a major crash–don’t wait to deal with your pain. Prompt chiropractic care will help support your body’s natural healing process and help you avoid a lifetime of chronic pain or other health problems.
