If you’re wondering why millions of people around the world are going crazy for chiropractic care, look no further than the plethora of health benefits. Beyond offering pain relief, chiropractic care is a vital aspect of disease prevention, wellness care, and overall maintenance — aspects which improve your overall quality of life.
A Dozen Reasons People Sing the Praises of Chiropractic Care
1.) Organic Healthcare
Unlike other mainstream healthcare professionals, doctors of chiropractic are trained to treat injuries and ailments naturally. Essentially, chiropractors train the body to heal itself through hands-on, drug-free, and non-surgical methods. By addressing your spine first and foremost, chiropractors can heal not just immediate aliments, but those that can stem from the musculoskeletal system as a whole.
Part of being a drug-free healthcare professional means doctors of chiropractic don’t hand out prescription medication. Chiropractors are not licensed to write prescription medications, as drugs are not apart of their practice philosophy. Instead, chiropractors promote a drug-free healing through a variety of therapies, such as acupuncture, ultrasound therapy, massage, adjustments, electric stimulation (E-stim), and instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM). Chiropractors take a drug-free approach because medications can have adverse side effects on the body, the foremost being addiction (i.e. opiates). In the end, chiropractors help people reduce their dependency on drugs and they love them for it.
3.) Alleviates Pain
The most common reason people visit a chiropractor is pain relief. It just so happens that’s one of the main reasons people love and enjoy chiropractic care. From chronic pain to mild discomfort, chiropractors naturally and effectively alleviate pain. At Hamby Chiropractic & Wellness, our chiropractors create personalized care plans to help our patients achieve their health and wellness goals, including pain relief.
4.) Mood Booster
Another reason people love chiropractic care is that they leave the office feeling great. Chiropractic has been proven to organically improve your mood. While the improvement in your mood can in part be attributed to your freedom from pain, chiropractic care can also enhance your mood by relieving stress, fortifying your cognitive health, and optimizing your body’s functionality.
5.) Improves Sleep
An irregular sleep schedule can cause a serious decline in your overall health and wellness. However, chiropractic care can help straighten out your sleep pattern. Chiropractic care can help you improve your quality of sleep by improving your blood flow and nervous system and correcting misalignments in your spine. All in all, people love chiropractic care because it helps them rest easier and fall asleep faster.
6.) Reduces Stress & Anxiety
Chiropractic care not only relieves your muscles of tightness and tension, but also rids your body of unwanted stress. Your nervous system runs along the spinal cord and any interruptions along the way can have negative effects on your mental health. Chiropractic care balances your nervous system and removes any roadblocks that are intercepting its flow. In this way, it helps your live a stress-free life.
7.) Nutritional Support
You may not think of a chiropractor as a nutritional expert, but that’s a major reason why so many love chiropractic. Your chiropractor can make diet recommendations and offer useful, everyday nutritional counseling. Whether your goal is to lose weight or simply make healthier lifestyle choices concerning your diet, your chiropractor can assist you.
8.) Elevates Performance
From the field to the stage, people love chiropractic care because it takes their performance to new levels. Chiropractic enhances your flexibility, range of motion, and endurance while reducing your likelihood of injury. In so doing, chiropractic care enables you to keep your body running like a well-oiled machine.
9.) Alleviates Headaches
We all deal with headaches at some point in our lives, which means we all can use an headache specialist to help us feel better. Chiropractic treatments, such as spinal manipulation, can significantly aid in headache relief by improving spinal function and removing stress on the body. Overall, chiropractic care can help headaches be less frequent and less painful.
10.) Immune System Support
Chiropractic care gives your immune system a bump. Thanks to the intimate connection between your spine, nervous system, and immune system, chiropractic is very effective at strengthening your immune system. Basically, your spinal column houses your nervous system, which is in constant communication with your immune system. When a component of the spinal column, such as your discs or vertebrae, impact the spinal nerves, the nervous system becomes interrupted. This interruption impacts the immune system, and can lessen it’s effectiveness. The work of chiropractic care ensures that the communication between your nervous system and immune system is clear so that your immune system can protect you from bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens.
11.) Helps With Pregnancy
Due to changes in weight distribution, many women experience chronic musculoskeletal pain while pregnant. This pain and discomfort can potentially lead to issues during labor and delivery. Fortunately, chiropractic care is a safe, all-natural treatment that can relieve pressure on the uterus during pregnancy by balancing the pelvis, muscles, and ligaments. Additionally, chiropractic can help reduce the overwhelming stress most pregnant women experience.
12.) Wellness & Prevention
It’s well-known that chiropractic care is a powerful instrument of healing and recovery, but it’s also a cornerstone of prevention. People love chiropractic because it keeps their bodies strong and keeps their health aligned. At Hamby Chiropractic & Wellness, we believe an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure. That’s why our chiropractors advocate chiropractic care as a first-line of defense.
