hen it comes to chiropractic benefits, the full impact of chiropractic care extends far beyond what most people would assume. Since chiropractic care specifically treats the health and position of the spine, it is widely assumed that visiting a chiropractor will only impact how a person's back feels or the amount of pain associated with it. This is one aspect of what we do but certainly not all.
Because the nerves flow through the spinal cord, it is the body's superhighway. Therefore, what happens with the spine can impact other areas of health that can include the intestines, sinuses and more. As a result, patients that visit our clinic for help often report feeling better overall in addition to finding relief from back pain.
Some of the more common benefits associated with receiving chiropractic care are:
1. Headaches either go away or their magnitude is significantly reduced
Many people visit us after suffering from severe headaches, including migraines. It can be difficult to live with this level of pain and some patients report that it interferes with their ability to work or take care of normal daily tasks. At this point, it is unwise to continue taking medication only since it will require doing so throughout the day or at least daily. Instead of depending so heavily on medication, we recommend getting to the bottom of what is causing the headaches in the first place. Very often, these are tension headaches that are caused by the spine being out of alignment. By completing a treatment, we can bring the spine back into alignment and either reduce or eliminate headaches.
2. Eliminate back pain
Patients that visit us after suffering from severe low, mid or upper back pain report experiencing a reduction in their symptoms right away. With ongoing treatments, it is often possible to eliminate back pain entirely. At a minimum, chiropractic care makes it manageable so that a person can go about life without discomfort.
3. Relieve muscle tension
Anyone who is suffering may find relief through a chiropractic treatment.
4. Improve mobility
Anyone that has found that they have lost mobility, including the ability to stretch or even go for a walk without pain will find that chiropractic care can often restore the mobility that they have lost. This makes it possible to regain normal activity levels and to enjoy life to a greater degree. From the ability to take a walk to the ability to bend down and tie shoes without the back hurting, mobility is important for a person's day-to-day existence and we work to help ensure that our patients are as mobile as possible.
5. Improved overall health
The least known chiropractic benefit is an improvement to a person's overall health. Some patients find that they feel they have more energy, get sick less often, and that their digestion works better when their spine is in alignment.
