You probably already know that chiropractic adjustments are one of the primary modes for many people to reduce pain (particularly back pain) due to injuries or other conditions of the spine. In fact, visiting the chiropractor should be one of your first stops in the event of back pain, because chiropractic adjustments can eliminate the need for prescription pain medications or surgery.
But you might also know people who regularly visit the chiropractor for adjustments, and they don’t necessarily have back problems. That’s because chiropractic adjustments can do much more than just relieve back pain!
Support your immune system. Spinal adjustments can release pressure on the nerves that control the lymph glands. With proper messaging restored, the glands can do their job of regulating the immune system more efficiently.
Relieve digestive troubles. Many patients are plagued by digestive troubles of seemingly mysterious origins. If the problem is due to a misfiring of nerves from the spine to the digestive system, chiropractic adjustments can address those symptoms.
Improve breathing. Chiropractic adjustments can improve the condition of muscles around the lungs and trachea, helping those with chronic breathing issues to feel more comfortable.
Increase mobility. Conditions such as fibromyalgia and arthritis tend to not only cause significant pain; they also lead to decreased mobility of joints over time. Chiropractic adjustments relieve pain but also restore lost mobility.
Headache relief. Chiropractic adjustments relieve more than just back pain. Focusing treating the nerves and muscles of the upper back and neck can reduce or eliminate migraines and cluster headaches.
Better sleep and more energy. Discomfort or inflammation in the body can impact your ability to get a good night’s sleep. Chiropractic adjustments address both of these problems, leading to improved sleep and more energy during the day.
Improved posture, balance, and coordination. When vertebrae are out of alignment, your posture is affected. This in turn reduces your balance and negatively affects your overall coordination. Whether you’re an athlete looking for improved performance or you’re simply concerned about these issues in your daily life, chiropractic adjustments can help your body function the way it was meant to.
As you can see, chiropractic adjustments have a lot to offer in the way of pain relief, prevention of certain problems, and improved bodily function. Call us to discuss your symptoms or concerns, and we will schedule a consultation to determine whether chiropractic treatments are right for you.
