While back and neck pain bring many patients to their first chiropractic appointment, there are other, lesser known benefits from spinal adjustments as well. Chiropractic care can improve various aspects of your health, from mobility issues to circulation, pre-natal care to sports performance. Some patients simply experience the strains and pulls of everyday life and seek a drug-free treatment to help increase their activity level and mobility. Chiropractic care can help heal your body naturally, helping you feel stronger and ready to live life without limits.
Here are some of the other reasons people seek pain management with chiropractic:
With less pain and better alignment, you might feel more energy, get better sleep and lessen feelings of anxiety and depression.
Chiropractic adjustments improve joint mobility, loosening overly tight muscles and gently increasing flexibility and joint health.
Many severe headaches start with tension in the neck. Spinal manipulation can help relieve the pressure on your joints, including pain that originates from neck stress, poor posture or muscle overuse or underuse.
Help reduce pain with non-invasive chiropractic care that can realign the spine and guide the disc back into place. This process takes the pressure off nerves that cause back pain, reducing numbness and any tingling sensations.
The shooting nerve pain of sciatica can also be alleviated with spinal work, which takes the pressure off affected nerves and helps reduce your discomfort.
Pain in the elbows and wrists, like carpal tunnel, can often be traced to a neck or back issue. Chiropractic care can get to the root of your problem, helping reduce your pain and the tingling sensation associated with carpal tunnel.
Chiropractic adjustments can help ease the back pain or joint discomfort often associated with pregnancy. Prenatal chiropractic care is also thought to help prepare the body for labor through proper alignment, possibly decreasing the length and intensity of labor.
From newborns to teens, children grow and change at a rapid pace, constantly adjusting to the normal bumps and bruises of childhood. Chiropractic care, starting even as young as infancy, can improve alignment, which promotes a healthier immune response to sickness, better sleep, lower stress levels and improvement in many common ailments from colic to asthma.
Improper spinal alignment can affect how efficiently your body works. With help from a chiropractor, your improved alignment can improve circulation, nervous system function and strengthen the immune system.
Regular chiropractic care can help you and your family members achieve better whole health, oftentimes managing discomfort without medication or surgery. From infancy to senior care, chiropractors are trained to offer effective treatment specially tailored to each patient’s age, pain and health concerns.
