There are many reasons to make an appointment for chiropractic care–sports injury, scoliosis, car accident, and post-surgical care probably come to mind. But did you also know that regular chiropractic visits are also important to your physical, mental, and emotional well-being?
Up to 80 percent of people will experience back problems at some point in their lives, and most of those cases are not caused by major underlying diseases, but from simple misalignment. Chiropractic adjustments can improve the quality of your life by getting you up, moving, and feeling good again.
How? First, let’s consider some basics. The spine is the control center for the body’s nerves. It relays messages from the body to the brain, and when that process is interrupted it can lead to numerous issues that are often ignored until we are so uncomfortable we look to our medicine cabinets, physicians, and sometimes even surgery for relief.
How Chiropractic Visits Are A Whole Wellness Solution
The non-invasive practice of chiropractic care, in many cases, can help us manage pain, strengthen our problem areas, improve quality of sleep, improve our ability to focus, decrease inflammation, and potentially help reduce our dependency on over the counter pain relievers. You’ll want to consult your physician for guidance, but in general spinal manipulation is a non-invasive, low risk method to correcting neck and back pain that interferes with our daily lives.
When your neck or back are out of alignment, your whole body will feel it! Slouching and poor posture put undue strain on your body which often leads to feeling tense and stressed, and that in turn affects your mood. Headaches, insomnia, chronic tiredness, and irritability are all symptoms of stress that can be caused by misalignment. They may also be easily corrected and managed by visiting your chiropractor on a regular basis. Our emotional well-being can be negatively impacted by chronic discomfort; it’s hard to be happy when we are hurting, but a visit to the chiropractor can help!
Improving posture is another benefit of regular chiropractic care. With more and more of our time spent looking down at our phones and computer screens, its no wonder our back muscles are weakened and so many of us have poor posture. Also, many report chronic neck and shoulder pain, and eye strain. Realigning the curve of your spine is an excellent way to help you sit straight again and help strengthen the weakened muscles that cause us to slouch and have poor posture. Improved posture can reduce muscle spasms, boost energy, strengthen your core, and reduce headaches–all great reasons to see your chiropractor for an adjustment.
Often times, seeing a chiropractor two or three times alleviates the issue that brought us to their office, but did you know that if we don’t continue with regular maintenance, we could end up back at the chiropractor with the same complaints we had before? Going in for regular adjustments helps our spine stay centered and balanced and helps preserve the positive effects of our visits. A good chiropractor will listen to you and utilize trusted techniques to make adjustments to your neck and back that can help improve your overall well-being and comfort; they will also have recommendations or suggestions for you to apply at home in between visits.
