The Dangers of Automatic Beds and Chairs
If you’re using an automated bed or chair to help to stand up or sit up, you need to call Corrective Chiropractic if you live in Greenville, NC. You may be in danger by making your condition worse and need to see a chiropractor as quickly as possible. As with any tool, adjustable chairs and adjustable beds can be very helpful. The problem is when you are wholly dependent on them.
If you are experiencing a significant injury from being in a severe car accident or another type of injury, then you may need help sitting or standing up until you are healed and able to get back on your feet by yourself. The problem with these types of devices is that they can be a problem if you rely too much on them and stop trying to use your own body to get up. If you don’t use it, you’ll lose it. You cannot completely avoid the activity of sitting up or standing up or you will not be able to sit up or stand up.
Sadly, many people do not utilize automatic chairs or automatic beds just for a short period due to acute pain. This makes sense because why would you buy something so expensive for only a few weeks or a couple months. Most people who utilize an automatic chair or bed do so because they are in chronic pain and have difficulty sitting up or standing. While a little extra help sitting up or standing may prevent you from being in pain it is not a fix for the problem. It’s likely going to make it worse because it only allows you to ignore, what is likely a chiropractic problem.
How do you fix the problem?
That’s why you need to find a structurally focused chiropractor. If, up to this point, your doctors have told you only how to avoid pain, let me tell you that there is another way. Regardless, of whether or not it’s your low back pain, sciatica, hip pain, knee pain, ankle pain, or any other limb or spine pain that is making it difficult for you to sit up or stand up, it’s imperative that you are evaluated by a structurally based chiropractor.
Traditional chiropractors can help with most simple low back pain, neck pain etc. If you want more comprehensive and long-lasting results it’s important to find a structurally based chiropractor who is dedicated to improving the shape and position of your spine in an objectively measurable way.

The bottom line is this. You must find out why you are having back pain or hip pain, etc. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had patients come into my office and tell me that their medical doctors never told them why they are hurting or that they should go to a chiropractor. Sometimes, they were given a diagnosis like, degenerative disc disease, or a disc bulge, but they were never told WHY this problem occurred. The reason they didn’t tell them is because they don’t know. Structural chiropractors are the top spine experts. If you have a problem with musculoskeletal pain, then you need to be evaluated by a chiropractor. If you need a chiropractor in Greenville, NC call Corrective Chiropractic today to schedule a consultation.
