Three Reasons to Start the New Year with Chiropractic

New year, new you! That’s how the saying goes, but we all know how hard it is to commit to really making a change. Sometimes, a little advantage can make all the difference. So it’s good to know that if changing your health and wellness is something you’re considering for 2019, a chiropractor like Dr. Lynelle McSweeney may be able to help. Here are three reasons to start the new year with chiropractic.

Reduce Pain

Living with chronic pain in the neck, temples, back, or joints can make it hard to just get through the day. When your spine is out of alignment, it creates pain and pressure not just in the back but all over the body. Chiropractors like Dr. McSweeney are trained to address your spine’s health and make you feel better. You’d be amazed what a pain-free existence feels like!

More Energy & A Stronger Immune System

That misaligned spine doesn’t just cause you physical pain. It also affects your immune system and energy levels. An unhealthy spine has a detrimental effect on your nervous system because it interferes with communication in the body. Starting the new year with more energy and a healthier, more robust immune system will have a big pay-off.

Improve Focus

A fully functioning spine that’s firing on all cylinders can make it easier to focus and concentrate. That’s not only because pain can be distracting, but also because a nervous system that can’t properly function negatively impacts our ability to concentrate. That fuzziness isn’t automatically associated with spinal health for many, but it’s often one of the biggest factors. After chiropractic care, many people find that they more fully focus.

Starting the new year with less pain, more energy and better focus sounds like an amazing way to greet 2019. If you’ve never visited the chiropractor before, learn what you can expect at your first visit with Dr. McSweeney here in Reno. Happy New Year!

A Warm Welcome to Dr. Porter’s Patients

dr-lynelle-mcsweeney-reno-chiropractor-2Greetings!

A few months ago, I had the pleasure of treating another Reno chiropractor, when Dr. Porter came into my office. Over the course of his treatment, we learned that our approach to chiropractic was strikingly similar. Dr. Porter also shared that he was looking for a local chiropractor not just for his own treatment, but for the care of all his patients. With plans for a leave of absence from his practice to complete research for specific studies and write a book, Dr. Porter first wanted to find someone he trusted. I’m pleased to tell you that our shared approach to care and treatment made his decision a little easier, and I want to formally welcome all of Dr. Porter’s patients. Read More
