What is wellness? Where does it come from? You’ve heard the saying “When momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy”? Well, if your spine ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy! Sometimes we forget how important our spinal health can be. If your spine is out of alignment, it makes everything harder: harder to get out of bed in the morning, harder to go to work, harder to take care of ourselves or our families, to say nothing of helping anyone else!

Often we think that as long as we aren’t running a fever or we don’t have a cough or a stuffy nose, we are healthy. But what about all those mornings when you roll out of bed and stretch and wish your back felt better? Or that your neck didn’t ache? We are not completely healthy. These seemingly minor things can make a world of difference to us as we go through our day. And surprisingly, a few minor adjustments from Dr. Hirst can also make a world of difference to us.

Our spine is central to our wellbeing. A pinched nerve, a compressed disc, or even a pulled muscle can put a stop to our productivity, making it very difficult to accomplish the most basic things. If you are struggling with daily tasks, come see Dr. Hirst for a massage or an adjustment. It can drastically change the way you think and feel. You may even be able to think past your own issues and help someone else!

Wellness also comes from helping others. Speaking of helping someone else, let us help you help someone else! We are sponsoring a local family for Christmas: a single mother with two small children. We will be collecting donations in our office up until the day before Christmas. Any amount you can donate would be a tremendous help. Without us, the kids won’t have Christmas.  It is truly wonderful when we have taken care of our own issues and we are able to reach out and help someone else who is in need. Thank you for helping us provide for this family.

Come see us at AZ Chiropractic and let us help you make your spine happy so everybody is happy. Merry Christmas!
