We motivate you to move more 

In most cases, too much immobility both contributes to the back pain in the first place and fuels the pain during injury. Here are some of the problems that accrue when you spend most of your time sitting:

  • Energy stagnation, poor circulation
  • Reduced dynamic joint mobility, in which joints cannot fully realize their desired range of motion.
  • Intervertebral discs absorb fluid and tighten up: the back becomes tighter and more vulnerable to injury.

Furthermore, sitting for long periods of time is usually performed with poor posture, compounding the stagnation by putting pressure on the cervical and lumbar vertebrae. Degenerated and herniated discs (separate conditions) are likely outcomes of a highly immobile lifestyle.

Sinus headaches are most often a manifestation of sinus infections.

These infections usually begin when colds or allergies cause swelling in the mucus membranes. Mucus production then increases, causing congestion. A good indicator of bacterial infection is if discharge is colored yellow or green instead of clear. Sinuses are located all throughout the head, meaning that the increased pressure often leads to headaches. Traditional Chinese Medicine is useful in mitigating sinus congestion, encouraging drainage and relieving pressure that leads to headaches. According to this tried and true philosophy, sinus problems are most often associated with disruptions of the gallbladder, spleen, lungs and qi stagnation.

In the grips of a New York winter

Cold air makes life difficult. To start with, it makes breathing harder and affects articulation. Traditional Chinese Medicine tells us that "cold wind" is responsible for a number of maladies, both seasonal and long-term. What this tells us is that simple things like wrapping up warm and  drinking hot, nourishing liquids like tea actually make a huge difference during winter time. And if winter wellness starts with small, simple factors like this, then chiropractic and acupuncture should also be considered.
