LAS VEGAS, Dec. 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Neck and Back Clinics in Las Vegas, NV is helping patients enjoy a happier, pain-free holiday season this year. The clinics announced new tips to help patients avoid holiday injuries and promote winter wellness. These tips include: getting regular adjustments to maintain proper spinal alignment; carefully lifting heavy holiday boxes using the legs to protect the lower back; and seeking prompt diagnostic care following any accident injuries that may cause whiplash pain.
Las Vegas chiropractor Dr. Benjamin S. Lurie is working to keep patients pain-free this holiday season. The chiropractor recently shared injury prevention tips as well as tips for better managing neck and back pain.
"The holidays are a very busy season, and between family gatherings and gift shopping, it's easy to get wrapped up in the season's chaos and forget to take care of our health," said Dr. Lurie. "Unfortunately, for patients with chronic back or neck pain, ignoring or failing to adequately treat this pain can put a serious damper on holiday festivities. Chiropractic adjustments are an effective neck and back pain management technique. In-office adjustments don't take a lot of time either, so patients can quickly be on their way."
According to the Las Vegas chiropractor, chiropractic adjustments are an effective pain management tool because they address the underlying cause for a patient's pain, in addition to managing a patient's pain symptoms. Chiropractic care specifically targets spinal subluxations, such as a herniated or slipped disc, that may be triggering the pain. Adjustments also support good posture and reduce lumbar spine compression, which relieves chronic pain.
"Chronic neck and back pain can seriously compromise an individual's quality of life," said Dr. Lurie. "This holiday season, we invite patients to experience the difference that chiropractic care can make as a pain management tool. We are encouraging patients to schedule a diagnostic exam now so they can kick-off the new year pain-free."
The chiropractor also shared tips for avoiding seasonal injuries that may lead to chronic pain. For example, as many Las Vegas residents prepare for travel, Dr. Lurie is warning them to be cautious about the dangers of auto accident injuries, no matter how seemingly minor they may be.
"Whiplash is typically associated with car accidents, and can take days before symptoms begin to manifest," said Dr. Lurie. "Any suspected whiplash injuries should be promptly evaluated and treated. Early treatment helps to reduce the risk for chronic neck pain."
Dr. Lurie has more than 12 years of experience treating Las Vegas patients for whiplash neck pain following auto accidents. The Neck and Back Clinics provide non-invasive, drug-free pain management for auto accident injuries. Visit http://theneckandbackclinics.com/ to learn more.
