OMAHA. NEB. (KMTV) – The pandemic caused stress, anxiety and migraines among people. Some people stopped seeing their chiropractor, but Dr. Gabriel Long of Awaken Chiropractic said the majority of their clients are continuing to come as their services are critical in dealing with some of the COVID-related stressors.
They still wanted to make sure that their customers could continue to be the best version of themselves.
“The pain is not the problem. The pain is the indicator light that tells you there is a problem inside and the body may not be able to withstand that stress over time, ”Long said.
Patient Carol Palmisano says her care cannot be postponed during the pandemic.
“He’s trying to straighten me up a bit because my back has a bad curve and he’s wonderful,” she said. “I don’t know what I would do without him.”
Long says that since you would never stop brushing your teeth, there is never a time when you shouldn’t take care of your spine.
“Understand that your nervous system controls your immune system, so it wasn’t about the strength of the virus, it was about the strength of the resistance,” he said. “How someone reacts to COVID depends on how well their immune system is working.”
Some chiropractic companies are booming because they use the latest technology and instead of focusing on pain, treating the underlying causes. This causes them to sometimes focus on the feet to assess and correct what is going on in the spine.
As more people work from home and don’t have a traditional desk, posture plays a big role in spinal cord problems.
“They call it a text throat, but older people call it a newspaper throat. We do the same thing when we look down like that. This down-and-forward posture puts so much pressure on the structure that supports it, and can cause the spine to take off Alignment, ”continues Lange.
You don’t crack your back or neck, you just use a neurothermal scanner and a small advanced tool to fix any problems.
“We have a full evaluation of your central nervous system. This is the latest technology released by NASA that enables accurate assessment of your spinal cord,” Long added.
They also treat children. Long says that with proper care and treatment, you will experience less pain, sleep better, and have more energy.
“He’s helped ease the pain in my back. I have had ups and downs on my days, but he is very encouraging and all the staff here are wonderful,” added Palmisano.
“The fruit of chiropractic has always been what prevents it. If you can keep your body going today, you can prevent your body from collapsing in the long term.”
