Pain relief is the most common association a person has with a chiropractor. However, there are many other reasons why individuals seek out chiropractic care.
Here are 9 of the most popular reasons why patients visit the chiropractor’s office:
1. The Relief and Prevention of Back and Neck Pain
Chiropractic care produces great results, when it comes to resolving back or neck pain. Many studies show how patients seeking Chiropractic care for lower back pain get fast relief and results that last. The results for neck pain are just as impressive. Studies have found that chiropractic patients recover twice as fast from neck pain as those receiving traditional medical care.
Patients who are suffer from Sciatica, or other conditions, such as a Cervical Radiculopathy, seek out a way to alleviate the pain and discomfort. Chiropractic car
e addresses the cause of such conditions by removing the pressure on the affected nerves. In most cases, chiropractic care can delay or even eliminate the need for drugs or surgery.
3. The Relief and Prevention of Headaches/ Migraines
Headaches are a sign of excessive stress on the central nervous system. Although Chiropractic care does not necessary treat headaches, it does remove pressure off the nerves and allow the entire body to function better. As a result, many headaches tend to dissipate or even disappear.
4. Easier Pregnancy and Labor
Conditions during pregnancy such as back pain, heartburn and circulation problems improve under Chiropractic care. Pregnant Chiropractic patients also tend to have shorter and less painful deliveries.
5. Greater Range of Motion and Peak Performance
Professional athletes in many different sporting codes will make use of Chiropractic care since it helps the musculoskeletal system to become balanced and perform better. When the body functions efficiently, the risk of injury decreases, and recovery time for an injury is normally faster.
6. Improved Overall Function
Chiropractic care aims to remove any interferences (called Subluxation) from the nerves, which improves the function and integrity of the entire body and mind. Your nervous system controls and coordinates all bodily function, therefore, stresses in the system can create a state of disorder that leads to dysfunction and, eventually, physical symptoms, such as pain or infection occur.
7. Healthier Children
Children can also benefit from Chiropractic care. Although a chiropractor does not offer to diagnose and treat the following conditions, Chiropractic care has helped many children recover from conditions such as acid reflux, ear infections, colic, asthma, ADD, ADHD and even Autism. This is because Chiropractic adjustments remove the subluxation in the central nervous system, which allows the body to function on a better level.
8. Menstrual Problems
Menstrual pain, abnormal cycles, infertility and menopausal symptoms in women have been alleviated by Chiropractic care, due to the nervous system’s control over the menstrual cycle.
Patients who receive Chiropractic care experience a decrease in seasonal allergy symptoms because of the improved efficiency of their immune system to fight off allergens.
Chiropractors don’t treat symptoms but rather ensure the normal transmission of mental impulses from brain to body, and body to brain. When the body makes these transmissions, the body can get all the information it needs in order to function the best it can.
