5 Little Known Benefits of Chiropractic Care…

By now most everyone agrees that chiropractic care is beneficial and safe for conditions such asback pain, neck pain, whiplash injuries as well as other pain. There are millions of Americans enjoying treatment. But what you may be surprised to learn are the following known benefits chiropractic clients enjoy as a welcomed “side-effect” of chiropractic care.

One: Improved sleep

Many clients report improved sleep after beginning their chiropractic treatment program. This makes sense since chiropractors help normalize nerve system function by removing interference caused by misaligned spinal bones. In addition the sensory input from painful muscles and joints is relieved with care. Once the nerve irritation is removed by chiropractic adjustments, the nervous system normalizes allowing the sleep switches to be tripped for the normal sleep sequence.

Two: Increased energy

Feeling sluggish or becoming easily fatigued by the end of the day is often blamed on lack of rest or inadequate nutrition, but nerve system interference can also sap your energy. If your brain is not fully communicating with the rest of your body, then performance will suffer. Energy flow is blocked when spinal bones are misaligned and when muscles within the neck, shoulders and back are too tense. By removing spinal misalignments, you are releasing the full flow of energy your body is capable of. This results in an increase of energy.

Three: Better digestion

Heartburn, bloating and gas after eating are very common medical problems and are a sign of gastric distress. Antacids may stop some of these symptoms temporarily, but the symptoms usually resurface again and again. The nerves of the thoracic spine control the stomach. If vertebrae here are misaligned then irritation of these nerves causes erratic nerve impulses that are sent to the stomach increasing acid production. The result is heartburn, acid reflux, gas, bloating, or a combination of these. Chiropractic adjustments remove misalignments, which normalizes nerve flow and often eliminates stomach issues.

Four: Boosted immunity

We all take our immune system for granted. Those amongst us who are into natural health often cite certain nutrients that can boost the immune system, but what do we actually mean when we say “the immune system?” In simplistic terms, the immune system is a neuro-vascular system. Whenever your body is attacked by bacterial or viral foreign agents, a complex series of messages are sent through the nervous system activating certain cells to protect you. Research has shown that your immune system can be adversely affected by misalignment in the upper vertebrae of your neck. Therefore, elimination of these misalignments can improve your immune response. Many chiropractic clients report catching colds and flu bugs less often while under chiropractic care.

Five: Regular elimination

Okay, this is a touchy subject, but one we hear quite often. As you well know regular elimination of waste from our bodies is crucial to good health. Irregular elimination causes waste by- products to build up and fatigue your body. Lower back misalignment and back muscle spasm can cause interference to the nerves that supply the colon and can lead to irregular elimination.

Removal of these spinal blockages results in a return to normal bowel habits. Clients are often surprised (and quite pleased) to find that their elimination becomes much easier and more regular after their back pain has been relieved with chiropractic care.

Now you know that chiropractic care is an effective form of treatment not only for relief of back and neck pain, but also a wide variety of other health benefits as well. In addition to these 5 benefits, chiropractic clients also report others such as better concentration, lowered blood pressure, improved blood sugar levels and more. Research is ongoing in many institutions to discover all that chiropractic care has to offer. Chiropractic is a common sense choice as part of a natural, healthy lifestyle in addition to good nutrition, exercise, rest and stress reduction.

Testimonials

  • "I have been a patient at Dr. Meylor’s clinic for the past 15 years, and during that time, he has been my primary health specialist. As an elite age group runner, it is extremely important to stay in alignment – both to prevent injury and to sustain optimum performance, so it is crucial to get a chiropractic adjustment at least once a month. Along with proper training, orthotics, attention to nutrition, and adequate sleep, chiropractic has been an essential part of my success in which I have been fortunate to compete at a national level in my age group for many years. And at a time when many of my age group competitors are declining in their running abilities, I have been able to improve my performance based upon age grading scales and have even been listed nationally in USA Track & Field’s rankings over the past two years. I am convinced this wouldn’t have happened had I not been getting regular adjustments from Dr. Meylor."
    Andriette Wickstrom, Storm Lake
  • "In addition to adjustments, there have been several occasions in which I have had non-invasive acupuncture treatments, with very successful results, especially during several instances in which I experienced severe headaches from allergic reactions. Not only did the acupuncture alleviate the pain, it also convinced me to never attempt to mask such problems by using aspirin or other such drugs or pain relievers."
    Andriette Wickstrom, Storm Lake
  • "I realize that not everyone is a competitive athlete, however, being in the best physical condition possible should be a goal for all of us as we strive to lead happy and productive lives. I greatly recommend having chiropractic care as an integral part of everyone’s health plan. The high quality care I have received from Dr. Meylor has contributed to my overall excellent health, and I would encourage others to maximize their own physical potential by choosing chiropractic treatment. Not only does Dr. Meylor offer exceptional skills, he is also very approachable in communicating to patients using understandable terms, and I completely trust his professional expertise."

  • "I was diagnosed with Fibromylagia 9 years ago, after being in bed for 6 week's due to the severe pain I was in. A friend recommended that i go to see Dr. Meylor. When i first walked into Dr. Meylor's office I was struggling to hold my head up without support. Dr. Meylor suggested therapy, acupuncture, an alignment, proper nutrition and exercise. The combination has kept me moving.
    Dr. Meylor sees me once every 3-4 week's Keeping aligned has proved to give me the best relief from my fibromyalgia symptoms. Thanks to Dr. Meylor and his staff, over the course of the past 9 years I have been able to have a very good quality of life with fibromyalgia.....something I once thought I would never have."

  • "I came to see Dr Meylor with constant burning in my ear, down my neck and arm. The office staff made me feel so welcome. Dr. Meylor examined me and i was adjusted twice that week and I felt so much better with each adjustment. I know that with my stressful job I will feel and do better to keep myself adjusted and continue going to Dr. Meylor on a monthly basis. Best decision I ever made."
    Rebecca
  • "I first started see Dr. Meylor in November 2012. When I first came to the office I was unable to walk for more than 1 block and I was not able to stand for more than five minutes. I was in such severe pain with my lower back that I had opted to seek pain control through the use of pain medication shots put directly into my spine . After a series of a total 12 shots into my spine I was still in severe pain and no relief in sight."
  • "Upon Dr. Meylor's recommendation I started seeing him 3 times a week for 4 weeks then 2 times a week for 3 weeks and finally 1 time a week for 2 more weeks. I was finally able to cope with what little discomfort I had. I now am able to stand for a good portion of my day and I can now walk about 8 block now without much pain. I will never be free from my back issue but I am now able to return to a normal life. I owe a lot to Dr. Meylor for helping me to become stronger and more functional in my day to day living. I continue to see Dr. Meylor on a weekly basis and am so happy with my improvement. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is needing help with any kind of chiropractic need."
  • "I had been suffering with severe low back pain and sciatica down my left leg for months. This affected everything I did and I became less and less active. I could not sleep at all at night because of the pain. My family could see how much pain I was in and I was not myself. I had to stop going to my children's school and sporting events that required me to sit in bleachers because of the constant pain.
    I went to my MD several times and was given pain pills and muscle relaxers. They made me feel terrible and now I had more side affects from them. The Dr. told me I should have back surgery which scared me to death."
  • "A friend told me to try her chiropractor Dr. Meylor. I called and they got me in that same day. Dr. Meylor listened to all my complaints and did a thorough exam and x-rays. He explained why I was experiencing this kind of reoccurring pain and what he could do to help. I was adjusted that day and given therapy. I felt immediate relief after my adjustment. I could'nt believe it! I had two more adjustments that week and I was so excited to be having less pain and I started sleeping thru the night! I continued following Dr. Meylor's recommendations and I feel great now and truly have my life back! I have my friend to thank for recommending Dr. Meylor and I have told many friends about my experience!"
