Are you one of the 50 million Americans who suffer from chronic pain? If so you’re probably intimately familiar with the feeling of pure desperation that can arise from an inability to find relief.
In addition to physical issues, chronic pain can cause anxiety, depression, and more. However, there could be a light at the end of the tunnel. Many people are finding advanced chiropractic relief that is completely changing their lives.
Your body is a world in itself. At this very moment, more than a million chemical reactions are taking place in your body. It manufactures energy, it regulates your heartbeat, your breathing and it regenerates and heals itself. Everything takes place without your conscious knowledge, without you controlling it voluntarily. The master system that controls it all is your nervous system.
The nervous system is made out of your brain, spinal cord and all your nerves.
The energy that flows through your nervous system in your body is like electricity. In order to have that electric flow normally and freely, we need to have a well functioning spine. Whenever you have disruption of that flow, disease happens. That would be the case when your spine is misaligned or is not moving properly.
Did you know that 90% of stimulation and nutrition to the brain is generated by the movement of the spine?
The more mechanically distorted a person is, the less energy is available for thinking, metabolism and healing.
This is why it is so important to have a healthy spine, a proper posture, to exercise, to eat properly – all of it truly matters for your quality of life.
Chiropractors localize the areas of your spine that do not move properly – referred to as vertebral subluxations – and adjust them with a specific high speed, but yet gentle, thrust to improve spinal motion.
Want to learn about some of the ways chiropractic care can help you? Keep reading for insight into some of the key benefits of seeing a chiropractor.
The benefits of chiropractic care are numerous:
1. Lower Blood Pressure
Studies show that chiropractic treatment can lower your blood pressure. Sometimes, this works just as well as a prescription blood pressure medication! This benefit can also last for as long as six months after treatment.
High blood pressure can cause an array of serious side effects like nausea, fatigue, dizziness, and anxiety. Sufferers who haven’t found relief should consider consulting with a chiropractor. A chiropractic adjustment may be the solution.
Some studies have shown that chiropractic adjustments can also help patients who are suffering from low blood pressure.
2. Reduced Inflammation
In many cases, joint issues, pain, and tension are caused by inflammation in the body. Chiropractic adjustments can reduce inflammation.
This leads to relief of muscle tension, chronic back pain, and joint pain. These adjustments can sometimes also slow the progression of inflammation-related diseases, like arthritis.
3. Better Sleep
Patients who receive chiropractic adjustments report a significant improvement in their sleep patterns. If you regularly suffer from insomnia, visiting a chiropractor regularly may help. Also, when you experience pain relief, this will help you get a restful night’s sleep.
4. Digestive Relief
Chiropractors often give nutritional advice as part of their services. However, this isn’t the only way that they provide patients with digestive relief.
Adjusting the thoraco-lumbar spine restores the neurological function of your digestive system. Regular adjustments can help with chronic digestive issues.
5. Stress Release
Everyday life can cause muscle cramping, inflammation, and more. When you’re sore from working at a computer, heavy lifting, or just dealing with emotional stress, a chiropractic adjustment can help. This leads to greater comfort and advanced pain relief.
6. Improvement of Neurological Conditions
A chiropractic adjustment can also increase blood flow to the brain and increase the flow of cerebral spinal fluid. This means that patients suffering from neurological conditions like epilepsy and multiple sclerosis can significantly benefit from regular adjustments.
This is a relatively new area of study, but the potential is huge. Those suffering from these conditions will want to do some research. It’s important to find the best chiropractor in their area with experience dealing with these specific types of cases.
7. Chiropractic care can improve communication from your brain to your muscles
Research seems to show that chiropractic care can improve your brain-body communication, helping your brain to be more aware of what is going on in the body so it can control your body better.
Better health, more energy and vitality are some of the positive effects of getting your spine adjusted. It sets your vertebrae back into motion freeing up the energy that travels through your nerves.
Chiropractic care is a partnership. The results patients want is a combination of what the chiropractor does and what the patient does.
There are many good things that can be changed and improved for a better lifestyle: exercise, good nutrition, good mental attitude and spinal adjustments.
Your whole body will work better by having your nervous system free of interference. That is the essence of chiropractic care and is designed for you and your family.
8. Pain Relief
Perhaps the most well-known benefit of going to a chiropractor is pain relief. Adjustments can help with a huge array of painful conditions including the following.
Neck and Lower Back Pain
Adjustments are the most effective non-invasive pain relief method for this type of pain. They may help patients avoid having to take prescription pain management drugs.
Treatments help relieve pressure on the nerve. This results in less severe pain that lasts for a fewer number of days.
Chiropractic adjustments help headaches and migraines. They do this by treating back misalignment, muscle tension, and stress. Cervical spine manipulation was associated with significant improvement in headache outcomes in trials involving patients with neck pain and/or neck dysfunction and headache.
Chronic headaches can result from the abnormal positioning of the head and can be worsened from neck pressure and movement. Chiropractic removes the interference whether it may be from the distant muscle tightness in the back causing strain on your spine or an abnormal lordotic cervical curve and moving vertebrae.
Chiropractic care can reduce the duration of headaches, lower their intensity when they do occur and limit the frequency of their occurrence all together.
Chiropractic treatment removes tension from the pelvis and sacrum. It also regulates the neurological function communicating with the reproductive organs. Adjustments can also relieve the bloating, cramping, and pain associated with menstrual cramps
Anyone who has tried traditional medical treatments and has been unable to find pain relief should experiment with chiropractic care. More often than not, you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
Bonus: Advanced Chiropractic Relief
In addition to the benefits listed above, adjustments can bring advanced chiropractic relief for a wide variety of other conditions as well as overall life improvement. A few examples include:
Scoliosis – adjustments have shown to help with the pain, reduced range of motion, abnormal posture, and even difficulty breathing caused by this abnormal curvature of the spine
Vertigo – an adjustment can help realign and balance the spine, thereby reducing the dizziness, nausea, and disorientation caused by vertigo
Sinus and allergy relief – adjusting the upper cervical spine can help drain the sinuses and provide immediate and lasting relief from both long-term and seasonal allergies
Expectant mothers – women can experience relief from pain and morning sickness and are better able to maintain proper posture during and after pregnancy
Children’s issues – treatments have been shown to help children with acid reflux, cholic, and ear infections
Athletic performance – the reduction in pain and inflammation is particularly beneficial for professional and amateur athletes
Stimulates the immune system – chiropractic care helps to boost the immune system, speeding up the healing process following illnesses or injuries. One of the most important studies showing the positive effect chiropractic care can have on the immune system and general health was performed by Ronald Pero, Ph.D., chief of cancer prevention research at New York’s Preventive Medicine Institute and professor of medicine at New York University. Dr. Pero measured the immune systems of people under chiropractic care as compared to those in the general population and those with cancer and other serious diseases.
In his initial three-year study of 107 individuals who had been under chiropractic care for five years or more, the chiropractic patients were found to have a 200% greater immune competence than people who had not received chiropractic care, and 400% greater immune competence than people with cancer and other serious diseases. The immune system superiority of those under chiropractic care did not diminish with age.
Dr. Pero stated: “When applied in a clinical framework, I have never seen a group other than this chiropractic group to experience a 200% increase over the normal patients. This is why it is so dramatically important. We have never seen such a positive improvement in a group.”
As you can see, there are almost limitless benefits to seeking chiropractic treatment. If you haven’t tried it yet, what are you waiting for?
There’s no need to accept pain and discomfort as a normal part of life. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain, so it only makes sense to find out more about this possibly life-changing approach to improving your health and wellness.
