Making the Most of a Chiropractic Adjustment
Understanding the Benefits of Chiropractic Adjustment
If you’re experiencing pain in your back, shoulders, head or neck and have exhausted all other treatment possibilities, chiropractic adjustment has been proven to provide immediate and longterm relief of stiff muscles that pull the spinal column out of alignment. Failure to treat a misaligned spine can cause pain throughout your entire body.
Here are just a few of the benefits of chiropractic adjustment.
If you visit your regular family doctor or general practitioner, they’ll quickly diagnose your pain and then provide a prescription for steroids or painkillers. But this is only a bandaid solution and doesn’t get to the root of your problem. A misaligned spine can affect every organ in your body, causing pain and discomfort. Natural chiropractic care simply guides the body to its natural alignment so that you experience relief of many painful conditions, and a few unexpected ones too. It’s an overall cure, rather than covering up the pain.
Better Digestive Support
Many people have sensitive digestive systems. They can experience upset stomach and intestinal disturbances when the spine, bones, and muscles are pulled out of alignment. Every system is connected together in the body. People have even reported that they experience full bowel movements after a chiropractic adjustment.
Boosts the Immune System
When the pressure is taken off your muscles, then your body can resume healthy organ function. This will help your body fight off bad cold and flu bugs. You may also experience fewer headaches, because your back and neck will feel much better. Ear infections should also be reduced, as immune function increases. When you leave the chiropractor’s clinic you’ll also feel a strong boost of wellness. Feeling good after a visit will help to decrease stress, which is also important for the digestive system to function well.
Improves Neurological Conditions
Chiropractic adjustments can help to increase spinal fluid and blood flow. This will naturally help to improve any neurological conditions that you may be suffering. In studies, chiropractic treatment has proven to be of benefit to MS patients and those who regularly suffered from seizures.
Can Prevent Surgery
It’s one thing to have surgery to fix a minor wrist condition but another when it involves your back. Most people do not want to have their backs opened up to fix bad alignment. Chiropractor adjustments can help to naturally realign the spine, even after serious injuries. Instead of invasive techniques that push your spine back into alignment, your spine is adjusted from the exterior. If your doctor has suggested surgery, consider trying chiropractic adjustments first.
Soft tissue therapy is beneficial in treating injuries, aches and pains, and repetitive stress injuries from sitting too long at your desk. Your chiropractor will advise you on the best heat therapy and cold therapy treatments to help ease discomfort and pain, and encourage healing.
