Over 50 million Americans suffer from neck and back pain daily. This nagging, persistent pain interferes with mobility, erodes our mental health, and reduces our overall quality of life. The demands of family, career, and social life constantly call us, but with pain and mobility issues, it becomes difficult to fulfill our obligations and enjoy life.
Have you seen a chiropractor?
A chiropractor is a trained medical professional; he works with all aspects of spine and joint health. Your spine is a delicate yet sturdy structure that protects and houses nerves running along your spinal column and throughout your body. When the vertebrae in your spine are out of alignment, it can result in pinched nerves, mixed signals, and persistent pain and systemic dysfunction throughout your body.
If you haven’t yet seen a chiropractor for your pain, consider all the benefits that come with realigning your spine and bringing relief to those delicate nerves once more. Your chiropractor is not just a spine specialist, he is a practitioner for total health and wellness. Here are some ways that a chiropractor can help you:
1. Improved immunity
A healthy, well functioning immune system keeps viruses and bacterial infections at bay. When the nerves along your spinal column are sending the correct signals to your immune system, it can perform the work it was meant to do, keeping you healthy and free from disease and the development of chronic conditions.
2. More energy
When you have a subluxation, or misalignment of the vertebrae in the spine, it can result in strained and stretched muscles. All of this extra muscle tension contributes to low grade inflammation and pain, which can really sap your energy. Bringing everything back into balance will help you feel more balanced, energized, and ready to take on your day.
3. Regulated blood pressure
When the nerves in your upper neck are properly adjusted and free from obstruction, this has a dramatic effect of being able to regulate your blood pressure. Unhealthy, high blood pressure is a precursor to heart disease, so keeping these numbers in check will be essential for a long, healthy life.
4. Improved digestion and elimination
The nerves running through your spinal column regulate all aspects of digestion and elimination; keeping your digestive tract healthy and moving along will prevent your body from absorbing harmful toxins from your food and drink that could manifest as disease. Regular chiropractic adjustments will help these systems run more efficiently.
5. Improved respiratory health
Not only does chiropractic care improve conditions like asthma and allergies, it can aid in improving your respiratory health as well. Chiropractic correction of your cervical and thoracic regions will help keep your lungs healthy and strong.
6. Healthier pregnancies
Chiropractic care may help with the regulation of healthier pregnancies and deliveries. Your body is undergoing significant changes as a result of your pregnancy; anything you can do to keep things balanced and moving freely will benefit both you and your unborn child, all the way up to delivery day.
7. Blissful sleep
Rest easy—chiropractic care can reduce those aches and pains that make sleep a frustrating experience. Studies have shown that a healthy spine also contributes to proper hormone regulation and the wake/sleep cycles that govern our days and nights.
8. Improved range of motion
When your nerves, bones and muscles are in a optimal state of health, you have full range of motion in all your limbs. This will allow you to bend, twist, and turn to your heart’s content, keeping up with the demands of life, whether they be sports, housework, or keeping up with the grandkids!
9. Better balance
Your body is a structural miracle; when you think about how well it supports you, it is no wonder that we feel more balanced when our spine is in good health. Chiropractic adjustments will bring your whole body into a state of equilibrium, giving you a more balanced approach to life.
10. Improved mood
Chiropractic care is a great mood regulator! Nerves that run along the spine send signals to the brain to release chemicals called endorphins, natural mood boosters. The relief from pain that chiropractic care gives you can also lift your spirits, as you don’t become weary with inflammation and pain.
