With Your Chiropractor’s Help, You Can Find Lasting Relief

neck pain relief WoodstockJenny woke in the morning with neck pain frequently enough that she had begun to simply accept it. But it was when she started to wake during the night because of painful tingling and numbness in her fingers and hands that she began to take her issue seriously. After several years of just accepting the nagging stiffness, she finally decided to visit her chiropractor in Woodstock to find relief. Funny enough, the solution to her neck problem was simple but tri-fold. Jenny’s bedtime rituals and patterns were all wrong.

First, Jenny’s pillow was the wrong type for her favored sleeping position. Though she had switched to a contoured foam pillow after understanding that her flat feather pillow may be the problem, she was still experiencing neck pain in the morning. Why? Because most molded foam pillows are designed and constructed for the back sleeper. Side sleepers need to support the weight of their head without causing additional strain on the neck.

Second, Jenny admitted that she often sleeps on her stomach, especially during cold winter nights as it makes her feel cozier. Big mistake. Stomach sleepers cause themselves ongoing neck pain by causing their neck to become unbalanced as the head is usually turned towards one side; stretching the muscles along one side of the neck while contracting those along the other.

Finally, Jenny enjoyed reading just before retiring for the night. She would prop her pillow up behind her as she drew her knees in and read for as much as an hour some nights. The angle at which she set her neck in order to read was causing stress and strain that professed itself when she woke in the morning. A lap desk which supports a book or e-reader at a level where your neck and head are at a natural angle was recommended.

After adjusting her sleep position and using the proper pillow and lap desk, Jenny finally found the neck pain relief that she had accepted as a part of growing older. With just a couple of chiropractic treatments and these changes to her nightly habits Jenny is living pain-free.

I had been yo-yo dieting for several years after having kids, trying to lose the extra weight I had gained when pregnant. I tried just about every diet out there and failed at each one of them because they weren't sustainable. I was introduced to the Ketogenic diet in June of 2018 and thats when my weight loss journey truly began. I give credit to Innovative Health & Wellness by keeping me accountable in my weight loss journey with weekly weigh ins, support from the entire team and educated coaching. I'm loving my new lifestyle and finally feel comfortable in my own skin!

“Love this place! Stefania and Valerie at the front desk are so sweet:) They always have smiles on their faces, and are so helpful! I came here at the recommendation of a friend after being rear ended in a wreck, and having awful neck pain. I have to admit I was a little nervous at first because I am a very private person, and it is difficult for me to have people in my personal space, but the whole staff made me feel so comfortable! Dr. Orlando is so kind and gentle. He really puts your mind at ease, and just makes you feel better!!! I don’t know how they do it, but no matter what kind of day I’ve had at work, I always leave this place smiling:) Thanks for taking such great care of me!!!”*

“I have been going to Innovative for almost 7 months for weight loss and it has been an awesome experience! I have lost 60 pounds and definitely could not have done it without the support and encouragement of the staff! I go there every week for weigh-ins and blood pressure checks, and they have become like family to me. They go through my highs and lows with me, and keep me on track. It has been a life-changing experience, and I would highly recommend Innovative if you are ready to lose weight and lead a healthier life!”*
