When most people think about Chiropractic care, the first thing that comes to mind is back pain. While Chiropractic is certainly second-to-none when it comes to assisting patients with managing and remedying back pain, there is so much more that Chiropractic has to offer. Regular Chiropractic care can completely change your life for the better and allow you to function at your optimal level. Here is just a small list of the benefits that Chiropractic offers:

  1. Preventative Pain Management: As discussed above, Chiropractic is known throughout the world as being a profession that helps sufferers with back pain, but in addition to helping you with existing, it can actually help to prevent the onset of pain in the first place. Maintaining range of motion in the spinal joints is one of the most important ways that you can prevent degeneration from taking place in the spine. This degeneration is known as Degenerative Disc Disease, or osteoarthritis. When joints become immobilized, even for a period as little as 7 days, the onset of arthritis begins to show up. Chiropractic adjustments also help to maintain the integrity of the spine as a whole, as well as keeping the openings that the spinal nerve roots pass through open as much as possible. By maintaining these openings, you decrease the risk of developing back pain related to pressure on the spinal nerve roots.
  2. Improving Sleep: Many issues that are related to why so many people have difficulty sleeping stem from pain, stress, and body aches. When there are misalignments of the spinal bones, it causes interference in the brain’s ability to communicate with the body, which causes the nervous system and body to experience stress. When this stress is removed, we are more capable of relaxing. Many people report getting much more restful sleep following Chiropractic adjustments.
  3. Optimum Body Performance: All professional NFL and most other sports teams use Chiropractic care to help athletes perform at their highest levels. Many athletes have gone on record singing the praises of how Chiropractic care gives them an advantage, but the really awesome thing is, the rest of us non-elite athletes have access to this same advantage. We all can improve our ability to function, and express health and wellness at the highest level that is possible for us. Chiropractic care improves circulation, it increases oxygenation, decreases muscle spasm, and helps to address the root cause of many sources of dysfunction including pain.
  4. Improves the Immune System: When the body is free of spinal misalignments that are producing interference in the nervous system, which are called vertebral subluxations, the nervous system is able to function properly. The nervous system is in control of every single cell, tissue, organ, and muscle in the body. Therefore, when the nervous system is working the way that it is suppose to, all other systems in the body are able to function properly. When the Immune System is boosted and working properly, you are able to avoid getting sick as easily, and if you do happen to catch an illness, you are able to recover much faster.
  5. Relieve Stress: After reading some of the other benefits mentioned above, it is easy to see how Chiropractic adjustments can help to relieve stress. When the body is free of spinal misalignment, the nervous system can communicate freely with all areas of the body. The muscles of the spine and those related to posture can relax, and our mind is likely more free of mental and emotional stress. In this way, Chiropractic care can help to reduce both physical and emotional stress, allow our bodies to be more relaxed and able to function as intended.
  6. Improve Mood: After a Chiropractic adjustment, your body’s entire system is more balanced. This includes the endocrine system which is responsible for producing and releasing hormones necessary for life. When there is imbalance present in the body chemistry, people have difficulty controlling their moods. Many people suffering from depression, ADHD, anxiety, and otherr mood related disorders report significant changes in and stabilization of their mood with regular Chiropractic care.
  7. Improve Posture: Chiropractic adjustments help to realign the spinal bones, which in return helps to balance out the postural muscles. Poor posture can lead to chronic back and neck pain, headaches, pain in the hips and shoulders, and lead to the development of degeneration in the spine. Regular Chiropractic care can help to improve posture and help you remedy or avoid completely these conditions associated with poor posture.
