Pain relief, poor posture, or injury prevention are just a few reasons to visit a chiropractor. But how is going to a chiropractor good for your overall health?
Not only is eating and exercising essential for overall health, sometimes there are deeper underlying issues or conditions that a chiropractic doctor may be able to pinpoint and help treat the pain associated with them.
Conditions That Chiropractic Care Can Help Treat
By performing a physical and neurological examination as part of their procedure, chiropractors diagnose and treat many different spinal disorders that cause musculoskeletal or nerve pain. Pain in the back or neck area is one of the most common reasons people visit a chiropractor.
Some of the conditions that chiropractic care can help treat include:
- Pain in any area of the body
- Headaches and migraines
- Immune systems
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Herniated disc
- Pain from past injuries or sports-related injuries
Benefits of Chiropractic Care
The benefits of receiving chiropractic care are endless. Doing so can help to improve mobility, function, and health in the joints. It enhances the muscle’s contractility (thus increasing strength) and lowers joint and connective tissue degeneration.
Chiropractic care can help reduce the on-going inflammatory process associated with subluxation (pinched nerve) and increase circulation by taking unstable blood out and bringing new blood in. By helping to accelerate the recovery process, it helps to strengthen and improve the nerve system’s function and the ability to carry nerve impulses.
When a patient receives chiropractic care, it can improve organ systems functioning that includes the heart, lungs, or sinuses. It helps to calm the mind of someone who is stressed, depressed or hyperactive.
For pregnant women, chiropractic care can help enhance energy and vitality and create a better sleep pattern. It can help to relieve pregnancy discomforts and pains throughout the body.
