Ready For A Chiropractic Adjustment

Share

Do you have symptoms of back pain, headaches, or stress? Pain medications work for only so long and don’t fix the problem. Visiting a chiropractor may help some or all of your symptoms. A chiropractic adjustment means that a chiropractor physically adjusts the vertebrae in the spine. This procedure creates positive effects without the stress or invasiveness of surgery.

Are you ready for a chiropractic adjustment?

To help answer, here are some of the benefits of getting a chiropractic adjustment.

Blood Pressure

A study in the Human Journal of Hypertension showed that chiropractic could give people with high/low blood pressure the same effect as taking blood pressure medication.

The effects of the adjustment would last for 6 months after the adjustment.

Medications can have negative side effects which include:

  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Anxiety
  • Weight loss

Imagine that chiropractic can have the same effect as these medications, An adjustment might be something to consider.

Neck and Lower Back Pain

80% of all Americans experience some sort of lower back pain in their lifetime.

Medications and surgery are options, but as we know from the opioid epidemic, they can be dangerous, expensive, and ineffective. Chiropractic treatment can definitely reduce back and neck pain and is also cheaper than other back pain management therapies saving you from mild and chronic pain while reducing medical costs.

Sciatica

Sciatica is pain that radiates from the lower back, and down your legs that usually stems from a damaged, herniated, bulging disc or sciatic nerve pressure.

  • Because of the intensity of the pain, over-medicating can become a problem.
  • A chiropractic adjustment can relieve pressure on the sciatic nerve.
  • Studies show that patients receiving chiropractic care reduced the number of pain days.
  • They also experienced a reduction in the intensity of their pain.

Inflammation is Reduced

Inflammation is one of the main causes of pain, joint issues, and tension.

Chronic inflammation has been linked to diseases like:

  • Heart disease
  • Chronic pain
  • Cancer

Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to reduce inflammation that leads to positive benefits:

  • Chronic lower back pain relief
  • Reduced muscle tension
  • Relief of joint pain

Headaches

Other than back pain, headaches are the top complaint that chiropractors treat. Both tension and migraine headaches can be caused by neck and spine issues. Back/Spinal misalignment can cause muscle tension and pain.

Neurological Conditions

Chiropractic adjustments help increase blood flow to the brain, as well as, cerebral spinal fluid. This helps people suffering from neurological conditions like multiple sclerosis and epilepsy.

Child Benefits

Chiropractic care can significantly improve conditions that affect children. The big three that can be helped are

  • Colic
  • Acid reflux
  • Ear infections

Colic

Colic causes crying and fussiness in children and babies from abdominal discomfort and gas. Adjustments have been shown to help improve colic symptoms.

Acid Reflux

Nerves in the gut can be particularly sensitive along with certain food sensitivity. Chiropractic helps keep the natural flow of the intestines moving.

Ear Infections

A chiropractic adjustment can help improve what’s known as the gut-brain connection, as spinal adjustments keep the synapses firing regularly.

This also boosts the immune system, which helps prevent infection/s.

Athletic Performance

Athletes who depend on their bodies for their sport definitely benefit from chiropractic. With a reduction of inflammation, pain, and other conditions chiropractic helps get the body in top shape and keep it.

Sports teams and professional athletes have chiropractors as part of their team. Alignments reduce inflammation and boost the immune system to help athletic performance.

Vertigo

Dizziness and vertigo can make it impossible to do everyday tasks without feeling disoriented, nauseous, and fatigued. This is a common condition after going through a head or neck injury.

A chiropractic adjustment specifically targets joints and vertebrae that are not moving correctly. Adjustments also bring the body into balance, thus reducing vertigo episodes.

Conclusion

A chiropractic adjustment can be a great way to improve multiple areas of the body, along with improving overall health with non-invasive treatment. With a chiropractic adjustment, you can safely and easily get yourself into top health.
