For 11 years running, Celebrate The Season has brought families and the community together. This year, it returns once again to bring warmth and the fun of the holiday season to the Lowcountry. And while you’re making memories, seeing the lights, and shopping with local vendors, you’ll also be helping your neighbors in need.
You’ve probably been told to ‘live your life’ and ‘be in the moment,’ so it’s no surprise that you might not want to think about the what-ifs. What if you are in an accident or become too sick to make decisions about your own healthcare? Will your family know what you want — or don’t want — done to keep you alive?
You’ve been playing a little too much pickleball or bowling, holding babies or toddlers too long or carrying heavy groceries into the house. Now you have some aches and pains in your shoulder and it’s hard to sleep at night. A part of your shoulder called your rotator cuff might be to blame and, no, this injury doesn’t just happen to professional athletes.
Your body is a machine that gets put through its paces each and every day and your joints take the brunt of the workload. Thanks to hours of walking, carrying packages and babies, running, playing sports and standing, you might find that your joints — such as your knees, hips or neck – hurt and feel a little stiff. This could be osteoarthritis.
ProMotion Chiropractic and Therapeutics – a mobile chiropractic clinic – is offering a new approach to chiropractic care. Although mobile chiropractic is not a new concept, there are currently no other self-contained mobile clinics in the Charleston area. Historically, in-home doctor visits accounted for nearly 40% of patient care until the 1970s, but from the 1980s through today, patients have found themselves fighting traffic, waiting for appointments and missing work to get to the doctor. Seeing an opportunity to address this vacancy, Greg implemented a fully mobile practice in order to allay current anxiety surrounding doctor visits and to address the changing infrastructure in the area.
If you missed the opportunity to obtain affordable health insurance late last year, you now have another chance to protect yourself and your family members from the financial disaster that can accompany serious medical issues. President Joe Biden recently signed an executive order that established a special enrollment period for coverage under the Affordable Care Act. You can go to the trouble of signing up on your own, or you can enlist the help of a qualified insurance agent – which won’t cost you a thing.
