Most of the patients that initially walk through our door are dealing with some kind of pain problem. With so many patients experiencing headaches, neck or back pain, they often think there are no other benefits of chiropractic care.
Yes, we help lots of people get and stay out of pain. Back pain has been one of the primary conditions chiropractors have treated for years.
With so much time spent on computers, neck pain and headaches have now become just as prevalent.
Chiropractors work wonders in helping patients that have been through the gamut of tests and treatments. Often they are told to deal with the pain, or that they can’t find anything wrong. Since doctors of chiropractic are the only health care providers that actively seek out vertebra that have become misaligned, they are the only ones that can find this particular problem.
You might be surprised how upset some patients get when they get help for a problem very quickly, often after experiencing pain for years before trying chiropractic care.
Decreased Stress: Many patients report feeling more relaxed and less stressed following an adjustment. The muscles that guard a misaligned vertebra cause a lot of tension. This increased tension and associated discomfort make it harder to get through your day.
Breathe Easier: Attached to all of your mid back vertebra are ribs. Ribs should move as you inhale and exhale. In some instances, the ribs become subluxated (misaligned) or fixated (stuck) during various daily activities. With restricted movement of the rib cage, there’s a decreased ability for you to take a full breath. Your chiropractor can help get these joint moving properly again, improving your ability to breathe.
Improved Immune System: Research has shown that regular adjustments actually improve your immune system’s ability to function. This is why many patients under chiropractic care report fewer colds and flu compared to their co-workers.
Improved Sleep: Whether it’s due to less pain or your joints moving as they should, patients report better quality and duration of sleep while under chiropractic care. Since sleep plays such an integral part in your body’s ability to heal and function at its best, better sleep is just another way chiropractic care helps you stay healthy.
While these are just a few of the benefits of chiropractic care, there are many more. More research is being done to confirm what chiropractors have been reporting for years – chiropractic isn’t just for pain! Making chiropractic care a part of a healthy lifestyle gets results!
