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.
