My Bag Is Killing Me!
Your purse is stylish, your laptop bag is professional, that diaper bag is practical and your backpack is the epitome of cool. But carrying the wrong kind of bag, or even carrying the right kind of bag in the wrong way, could also be the source of your neck, back and shoulder pain. In fact, in some cases it can even lead to headaches, nerve damage, and long-term postural abnormalities.
In fact, handbags are one of the biggest culprits for chronic injuries in today’s women, and it’s no surprise why. The purses of today look more like army rucksacks than the tasteful clutches or utilitarian handbags of previous generations.

Why Is Good Posture Important?
We’re often told how important proper posture is, and it’s easy to recognize poor posture due to years of bad habits in older adults. But many fail to consider that your posture is simply an outward reflection of how well your spine (and therefore your spinal cord and nervous system) are functioning! Read more
Got Back Pain?
For those dealing with acute or chronic back pain, simply getting through the day is often a challenge. Maybe you were in a car accident at some point and the pain still lingers. Maybe you recently took a bad fall or have a sports injury that causes normal range of motion or even sleeping feel like a chore.
Whatever the reason, what’s most important in recovering from back pain is getting it treated as soon as possible. The earlier you see a chiropractor or other spinal specialist, the less likely you’ll become dependent upon drugs and/or surgery.
Depending upon how and why your back pain developed, a chiropractor can offer you a combination of strengthening exercises, physical therapy, and recommend postural changes. Here are a few more tips to help manage your back pain. Read more
