Restorative Medicine Gardeners
& DIY
Warriors

Gardening may be a rewarding activity, but it can also be painful. With all that bending and squatting in the dirt, working in the garden can be hard on your knees, back, shoulders, neck, and more.

Restorative medicine offers help for gardeners. In addition to treating related injuries, consulting with one of our chiropractors can help you avoid pain in the future.

What Damage Can Gardening Do?

Gardeners can be affected by a variety of conditions, the most common of which include:

  • Back pain and injury
  • Sore knees and joints
  • Neck strain
  • Muscle stiffness

While these conditions are not often serious, they can, if not treated properly, lead to further injury and chronic pain.

How Can Restorative medicine Help Gardeners?

At Choice Restorative Medicine we use entirely natural, holistic methods to treat any gardening- related injuries.

At our practice, we offer the following natural treatments:

  • Therapeutic Stretches and Exercises:

    We’ll teach you how to perform stretches before starting in the garden and after your work is finished. Warming up and warming down after gardening helps minimize the shock to your system, which can reduce your garden-related pain.

  • Elimination of Subluxations:

    Subluxations occur when the spinal cord becomes pinched in the vertebrae of the spine. Bending over while working hard in the garden can result in subluxations. With spinal adjustment, we can treat back injury by eliminating subluxations, making the experience of gardening more comfortable and less damaging to your body.

  • Practical Advice:

    Some movements and postures are better for your body than others. We can teach you how to avoid injury by holding your body properly and using products like garden mats for kneeling.

Musculoskeletal injuries can reduce your productivity in the garden, but at Choice Restorative Medicine, we’ll help keep you working in the garden you love.

If you’re experiencing a lot of gardening related pain, schedule your free consultation with us today!

Restorative medicine Keeps Athletes Running

Stem cells for the non-surgical treatment and repair help with arthritis, including the knees, hips, elbows, and shoulders. Runners don’t need to be experiencing pain to benefit from restorative treatment.

PRP treatment is a type of plasma containing many factors that can be essential for healing and the restoration of cells. A small amount of your own blood is removed and placed in a centrifuge to separate it into its many components, one of which is PRP. The PRP is then re-injected into a specific area to begin the regeneration process.

K-4 laser treatments can also be used to treat a wide variety of pain, injuries, neuropathy and swelling, carpal tunnel, arthritis, skin disorders, bursitis, nerve damage, joint damage, and plantar fasciitis.

Chiropractic Care Keeps Athletes Running

Runners don’t need to be experiencing pain to benefit from chiropractic treatment.

The following chiropractic methods can help keep the spine in alignment, which in turn enables good communication between the brain and the rest of the body.

  • Spinal Adjustment:

    The foundation of all chiropractic care, this technique realigns the vertebrae and eliminates subluxations. Spinal adjustment helps reduce muscle stiffness, leading to greater mobility and decreased risk of injury.

  • Hot and Cold Therapy:

    Cold compresses can help reduce inflammation if runners become injured, while heat therapy can help reduce pain and promote increased blood flow to parts of the body that need to be healed.

  • Nutritional Counseling

    Eating right helps ensure that the body has enough energy for sprints or endurance training, which can help you train safely without injury or muscle strain.

Regular chiropractic treatments can help runners like you avoid injuries by keeping the musculoskeletal system of your body working properly.
