Led by the husband and wife team, Lisa Ortiz and Chris Hinchman, Spring Ridge Chiropractic offers chiropractic care in their Spring Ridge location in Frederick.
With over 35 years of chiropractic experience between them, the pair is passionate about helping their patients live a healthy lifestyle through consistent chiropractic care.
Ortiz and Hinchman see chiropractic care as one part of a wellness journey with the goal being overall health and well being through maintenance and consistent care, but they note that many patients are still motivated by pain to seek out their services, “We wish people knew that you shouldn't wait until you're in pain or have permanent damage to start seeing a chiropractor. It does not take much time or money to receive preventative chiropractic care to extend your comfort and mobility much later on in life.”
Caring for your spine should start early in life and continue throughout, similar to general medical care. Those who are diligent about their chiropractic care experience several benefits including, but not limited to, headache and stress relief, chronic pain relief, lower anxiety, greater mobility, and more.
For those in the workforce, receiving chiropractic care can have benefits that directly impact your performance at work. Obviously having less stress and anxiety help increase productivity, but chiropractic care can also eliminate and prevent pain which in turn allows individuals to have increased focus and better attendance. Ortiz and Hinchman also note that chiropractic care can help boost your immune system which may help you fight off illness that might otherwise cause you to miss work.
To support and educate the Frederick business community about the benefits of making chiropractic care a priority, Spring Ridge Chiropractic offers free lunch and learns to local businesses. They bring the lunch and the education, including assessments for your employees, and you fill the room with people eager to learn about the multiple benefits visiting your chiropractor on a regular basis can provide.
5 Ways You Can Take Care of Your Spine at Work
Make sure your workspace supports spine health.
Ergonomics are an important part of ensuring your workspace is healthy for your body. Things like a supportive chair, and a setup that is adjusted to your height and functionality well help prevent injury. Avoid neck pain by not cradling your phone between your ear and your shoulder. Avoid back pain and muscle tightening by moving around periodically -an adjustable desk that allows you to stand can help with this. And, make sure you don’t use your computer or phone by looking down at an unnatural angle to avoid neck pain, carpal tunnel, headaches, and other ailments doing this can lead to.
Drink plenty of water.
Hydration plays an important role in your overall well being, and caring for your spine is no different. Drinking plenty of water allows you to maintain elasticity and fluidity of your joints which will allow you to enjoy better range of motion while avoiding several other ailments. Keep a refillable water cup on your desk and commit to drinking a certain number of them each day.
Go out for lunch.
At least get out of your office. Take a stroll around the block, use the stairs and just go out to check the weather. Moving around during the day helps keep your muscles loose and strong.
Be careful when you lift.
Whether lifting is a major part of your job, or you have to move a box of copy paper from time to time, countless back injuries are sustained thanks to improper lifting. You can learn the proper technique here: This is how to lift a box.
