Reasons to seek chiropractic care

In addition to aches and pains, chiropractic care can treat a variety of other common conditions and complaints including Irritable Bowel Syndrome, neck and shoulder pain, scoliosis, ear infections, asthma, high blood pressure, pregnancy discomfort, tight muscles, nausea and sciatica among many more.

Reasons for the need of a spinal adjustment

A vertebral subluxation is a term used to describe any type of spinal misalignment that could put pressure on nerve endings, causing a variety of neuromuscular disorders. An adjustment is a process through which a chiropractor realigns the vertebrae, leading to relief from pain and healing for poor medical conditions.

An adjustment may be needed if a vertebra “slips” out of place because of an accident or fall. In some cases, the entire spine may be in need of realignment due to prolonged poor posture. Inflammation caused by arthritis, a poor diet, stress, fibromyalgia or a sedentary lifestyle may also put pressure on the spinal column, pushing some vertebrae out of alignment.

Degenerative changes of the spine or the development of bone spurs could also cause issues. Tense muscles along the spinal column or in the shoulders could also pull the vertebrae out of place and cause misalignments that create headaches and back pain.

Benefits of chiropractic care

As mentioned previously, chiropractic care can be used to treat a variety of medical conditions, but seeing a chiropractor regularly can also be a beneficial practice for overall health. Many people find they enjoy continued visits to the chiropractor even after their ailments have been healed— adjustments may provide a feeling of well-being and calmness. Chiropractic adjustments reduce inflammation in the body, relieve tension, boost circulation and immunity to illness, decrease stress and tension in the body and help abolish free radicals (which age the body and damage cells).

These adjustments may also increase energy and relieve anxiety. Due to these benefits, regular visits to a chiropractor can provide preventative protection against illness. Since visiting a chiropractor relieves pain in the body and provides a better range of motion, many athletes and people trying to exercise and lose weight find it beneficial. Visiting a chiropractor could also keep sports injuries at bay.

Preventative programs, as well as treatment for illness or injury, are all options available from the chiropractic office. If you are experiencing persistent discomfort, inflammation or poor health, visiting a chiropractor for natural, drug-free healing may be the treatment you need.
