Here are 7 Great Reasons to visit a Chiropractor
1. Stress Relief
The body functions best when properly aligned. The nervous system is responsible for pain signals sent to the brain from different parts of the body. When the spine is not properly aligned, the entire body can feel the effect. This can cause mental and physical stress over the entire body. A balanced body leads to less tension and stress. A well adjusted body allows a person to manage stress better.
2. Immune System
When the nervous system is not working properly, different parts of the body are not receiving vital signals necessary to function. When the nervous system is not working properly, the immune system suffers also. You'll recover from illness quicker when your nervous system is working.
In fact, a series of studies published by the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics showed that several types of immune system cells, showed increased biological activity after chiropractic adjustment.
3. Sleep Better
Most people do not sleep well due to pain, stress, and overall body aches. A National Sleep Foundation poll found that 60% of American adults experience sleep problems at some time. In fact, according to the APTA Move Forward survey, 37% of adults said that LBP affects their sleep, with over half stating that they suffer from poor sleep quality. Chiropractic treatment and the manipulation therapies used are believed to help to improve blood flow in patients, which is essential for great sleep.
4. Help with Migraines and/or Headaches
It is reported that 9 out of 10 Americans suffer from headaches, though varying in intensity, headaches and migraines can really affect your quality of life. In the treatment of headaches and in the treatment of migraines, chiropractic care have proven to be an effective treatment, with spinal manipulation being the technique which is most commonly used.
In fact, a study by JMPT in 2011, found that chiropractic care improves both migraines and headaches, when treated with spinal manipulation techniques.
5. Posture Improvement
More and more patients are presenting with curves in the spine and poor posture. The curve in the neck is particularly delicate and can develop issues due to computer overuse or texting constantly. Chiropractic treatments, over time, can help realign the neck and spine to improve posture and relieve pain.
6. Better Mood
When a person is in pain, their mood often reflects their pain level. Balancing the body’s nervous system leads to a balance of the chemicals in the body. Issues such as ADD, ADHD and depression have been known to improve with regular chiropractic care.
