When people are seeking chiropractic care, one of the most common problems they are coming in for is low back pain.
I have often had patients who have been under care tell me “I have more energy, I have not had a cold in a while, I am much less stressed, my digestion has been better etc.” There are a number of benefits to regular chiropractic care.
1. Back & Neck Pain
As most people know one of the major benefits of chiropractic care is relief from neck and back pain. Even if you have slept the wrong way, have tightness and knots in your neck and shoulders from slouching over your computer all day. Chiropractor care can help alleviate this tension, correct your posture and allow the joints to function optimally. If you suffer from arthritis and chronic joint pain being adjusted will help ease or remove the pain entirely.
2. Sinus & Allergy Relief
Suffering from either long-term or seasonal allergies chiropractic care may help drain the sinuses. Adjusting the upper cervical spine, stimulating acupressure points, or manual sinus massage. This can give a patient lasting relief or temporary relief from episodes during those increased times of allergies.
3. Relief from menstrual cramping
Each month women suffer from painful cramping, bloating, headaches, etc. Chiropractic care can help regulate neurological function that is supplied to the reproductive organs. Also taking the musculoskeletal tension off the pelvis and sacrum allows the reproductive system to function optimally.
4. Better Sleep
After being adjusted, you will sleep like a baby! When you continue to receive regular chiropractic care you will notice a huge improvement in your sleep patterns. The same is true for infants, chiropractic adjustments will be tailored to the patient. The technique will be changed to cater to the safety of your infant.
5. Expectant Mothers
A pregnant woman can have a number of different symptoms such as morning sickness, lower back pain, sciatica, hip pain, round ligament pain, mid back pain etc. Along with decreasing these symptoms a specialized practitioner can remove the stress on the woman’s pelvis and the baby may turn out of the breech position on their own. Even after the baby is born, a new mom has increased upper back pain due to constant holding and breast-feeding. Chiropractic care help decrease this tension and help maintain proper posture.
6. Digestive Aid
When the thoracolumbar spine is adjusted the neurological function is restored to the digestive system. Chiropractors often give nutritional advice, it is a major part of the chiropractic curriculum. Often, being adjusted regularly helps keep the digestive system working appropriately.
7. Sports Medicine
Chiropractors treat multiple sports injuries whether it be shin splints from running or a rotator cuff sprain from softball. Recently I have been seeing a number of volleyball players with jammed thumbs. Chiropractors are very capable of diagnosing and treating injiuries on and off the field.
8. Getting over sickness
Battling the cold or flu? Chiropractic care helps stimulate the immune system. It also helps speed up the healing process and build a better immune system.
9. Stress Release
Perhaps one of the most relaxing benefits to chiropractic care is the stress relief. Whether it’s a long day at work, heavy lifting and packing, or just an emotional weekend being adjusted will literally lift a weight off your shoulders.
