5 Reasons to Choose Chiropractic Care
Reason 1: Decrease your pain.
According to an article in the Neurologic Clinics journal, roughly 50% to 80% of people will experience back pain at least once in their life (2). According to a U.S. national survey that considered data for five sample years, back pain is the fifth most common reason for visits to a doctor’s office (1). Choosing the right doctor is very important; one doctor will treat the symptoms while another doctor will address the cause of the problem.
The spine is considered the main core of the human body and without it, you aren’t able to function properly. Chiropractic care has been shown to help treat back pain and avoid the use of pain killers. With a chiropractic adjustment, a chiropractor can treat a wide variety of conditions including, neck pain, low back pain, headaches, migraines, and more. However, chiropractors are not limited to only treating the spine. Due to a chiropractor’s in-depth knowledge of anatomy, chiropractors also have the capability to treat upper and lower extremities. Patients often experience immediate pain relief after the first visit
Reason 2: Improve your physical performance.
Improving physical performance applies to everyone, not just athletes. For any individual, improving physical performance can improve quality of life, such as with walking or running with no pain and performing activities of daily living. For athletes, improving physical performance involves increasing strength, speed, flexibility, and coordination. All of which are affected by the spine and its functionality.
Reason 3: Improve your posture.
The structure of the spine was designed to withstand compressive load and disperse the load evenly throughout the spine to avoid localized degenerative changes. However, due to a change in lifestyle and lack of movement, people are developing either a flat low back or a rounded upper back. These changes are ultimately causing people to experience migraines, low back aches and strains, stiffness in the spine and shoulders, and numbness down the arms and legs. Rounded shoulders with forward protrusion of the head is one of the most common bad postures seen in patients today. These functional changes can be improved by a chiropractor. With chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy modalities, and corrective exercises, good posture and pain free motion is achievable by seeing a chiropractor who is well-educated and experienced.
Reason 4: Promote better sleep.
Sleep is essential for our body to function physically and mentally. It also is important to get an adequate amount of sleep so our bodies are prepared to fight diseases, allow for a strong immune system, lower our stress, and improve our mood. When we are in pain, it is difficult to fall asleep or even get into a comfortable position. A chiropractic adjustment assists the body in easing the pain, decreasing muscle spasm, and calming the nervous system so that our bodies are able to rest with better sleep.
Reason 5: Eliminate the need for pain medications.
Pain medications should only be used in cases as needed. Pain medications for conditions like back pain, neck pain, and more will mask the problem instead of correct it. Chiropractic adjustments will help correct the issue and reduce the pain, as well as reduce or eliminate the need for pain medications. Furthermore, long term use of certain pain medications can affect the liver and kidney, GI function, and may lead to addiction. Choosing chiropractic care makes more sense for living a healthy life.
