If you spend your work day stuck behind a desk in the Nashville, TN area, spinal decompression therapy may be just what you need to help your body survive your sedentary job. In fact, having a desk job that requires you to remain in the same position eight or more hours per day can be just as damaging to your spine as being employed in a position that requires intense physical labor.
You may not be lifting heavy objects or engaging in a lot of back-breaking job functions, but sitting for long periods of time can cause your spine to essentially compress, leaving you with aches and pain that feel like you’ve strained it. We aren’t meant to be stationary creatures so when you don’t move around every once in a while, things freeze up and problems begin.
Think of your spine like a piece of metal left to rust if it isn’t used regularly. Spinal decompression therapy keeps all of your discs and their surrounding fluids in place so that you can move about easily and painlessly – both at work and at home.
Dr. Jim Sweeney is a well-known Nashville chiropractor who treats many office workers who strive to do their best at their desk job without having to suffer from the side effects. The best part is that with spinal decompression therapy, you don’t have to take weeks off work to recover from back surgery or try to make it through your day with pain-medication brain haze.
All you have to do is come to Sweeney Chiropractic and prepare to slowly and gently elongate your spine. Sounds relaxing, doesn’t it? Good, because it is.
