NEW PAIN ISSUES AND HELP WITH CHIROPRACTIC

As stated by the American Chiropractic Association, our Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients are not alone! Chiropractic patients across the country are telling of some new pain issues with their neck, shoulders, and upper back during COVID experience, especially those who wear masks for long hours. Certainly, stress is a contributor to pain in normal life. In these times, it’s no surprise that patients are reporting more pain. Masks may well add to pain in the neck, shoulders, and upper back. Masks may impact vision. If a mask sits too high, the wearer may tuck the chin to see better or hold the neck in a different way to see better. A better fitting mask may help. More frequent breaks may be of benefit. Stretching more often may help. A walk to de-stress is a terrific option! (5) Your Fernandina Beach chiropractor understands these issues and is here to help!
