When we’re in pain, the part of our body that hurts often swells up.

When this happens, what people tell us we should use the RICE method — rest, ice, compress and elevate.

But when we’re living our normal day-to-day life, dealing with family responsibilities, and handling work, sometimes we don’t have the time to do that, so we’ll turn to over-the-counter medications or prescription medications.

But what if there’s a different way?

See, when we’re dealing with pain, it’s usually caused by inflammation going on in the body.

This inflammation can be caused by physical trauma, what we eat, our sleep, and even allergic reactions.

Chiropractic adjustments address this inflammation. They take pressure off of those joints.

They increase blood flow and restore the nervous system to how it’s supposed to be working.

Here at the Specific Chiropractic Centers right here in Lake Country, we help people all the time cut down on that inflammation and make sure that the body is working.
