A new and serious side-effect from stress caused by the pandemic has been detected by Nebraska chiropractor Dr. Scott Donkin. Neck, back and jaw pain, headaches, and insomnia have worsened significantly, and they are the direct result of excessive “clenching.”
People often ask me what my secrets are for staying healthy and well. You see, I stand, bend, twist, squat, reach, pull, lift and grip all day long in my Chiropractic practice and in my 38 years of busy practice here in Lincoln I have never lost a day of work due to illness or injury. I have certainly experienced my fair share of injuries through the years but the blessing in these injuries has been that they taught me first-hand how to recover while working hard.
Scores of my patients, as well as millions more are now working from home. Teachers, students, attorneys, those in the financial services and many others are trying their best to remain productive in make-shift home workstations.

LINCOLN, NE. (April 30, 2020) – As if working from home or feeling the pressure revolving around mitigating the spread of COVID-19 isn’t enough, we now must deal with the pain of wearing masks. While admittedly protective, the wearing of these masks can become a real pain in the neck that can easily be prevented.

Q. How can I best communicate with my doctor of chiropractic?
A. Since your main mission in acquiring the services of a chiropractor is to relieve pain and get well, you must communicate openly and freely about the history and course of events that led you to the chiropractor’s office. Remember to be candid and accurate when the doctor questions you during the office consultation. Your doctor of chiropractic will also expect you to communicate clearly during the examination and throughout any subsequent treatment visits.
