The Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Chiropractors use various forms of manual therapy to help treat patients who are in pain, whether the pain is due to an injury, degenerative condition, or pregnancy. Manual therapy has been shown to be exceptionally effective in treating a wide range of musculoskeletal problems, including back pain. But there are many benefits of chiropractic care, aside from pain management. In fact, regular visits to your chiropractor can help to prevent an injury in the future, can speed up your recovery if you are injured, and can help improve a patient’s overall well-being.

How Chiropractic Care Improves Your Quality of Life

Chiropractic care offers a gentle approach that provides relief from pain and improves mobility, range of motion, and flexibility, all without invasive surgeries or harmful medication that can be habit-forming. However, despite studies that have proven the effectiveness of treatment over traditional methods such as surgery, there are still many misconceptions concerning how beneficial chiropractic treatment is.

The benefits of chiropractic treatment include:

Pain Relief

Chiropractic treatment is one of the safest and most effective forms of health care to treat pain. Treatment can also be very effective since most causes of spinal conditions are linked to an abnormality of the spine. Chiropractors are trained to identify and care for misalignments and the effects of subluxations on the nervous system. Taking pain medication or NSAIDs can provide temporary relief, however, the pain will return again, once the medication has worn off.

The goal of chiropractic care is to increase range of motion, relieve pain, improve mobility and flexibility, and reduce nerve irritability. Qualified and compassionate chiropractors will work with a patient to relieve their pain and discomfort through manual therapy and set them on a path to a pain-free life.

Regular Maintenance Can Improve Wellness

Chiropractic adjustments can relieve spasms, pain, and discomfort in the muscles surrounding the spine. Regular therapy can also release joint cavitation, which is caused by the release of carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and oxygen.

Most people will turn to chiropractic treatment once they injure themselves, however, regular therapy visits can help a person to avoid any pain or injuries in the future.

Increased Range of Motion

Regular chiropractic treatment can increase the range of motion of the extremities and spine. This can have a major positive impact on a person’s quality of life, allowing them to complete daily tasks without debilitating pain.

Improved Coordination and Balance

Many people have coordination and balance problems, especially seniors and expectant mothers. Studies have shown that chiropractic treatment can help to restore coordination and balance by stimulating joint receptors found in the cervical spine, and normalizing joint receptor function.

Reduces Joint Degeneration

Spinal misalignments can cause the spine to prematurely wear out. Because all moving parts will wear down over time, it’s crucial that the spine is periodically aligned. Chiropractic treatment helps to minimize arthritic changes and spinal degeneration by reducing spinal stress and normalizing alignment.

Faster Recovery Time

When the body is recovering from an injury, the injured person may experience inflammation and muscle spasms which can increase the length of their recovery time. Chiropractic treatment doesn’t just minimize pain but it can also help the body to recover faster. Soft tissue manipulation and adjustments can break up scar tissue, which can increase strength, elasticity, and flexibility throughout recovery.

A chiropractor can restore joint movement, by warding off the shortening of ligaments and muscles.

Prevents Sports Injuries

Chiropractic care can prevent sports injuries by removing nerve interference, aligning the spine, and restoring optimal joint mobility. Improved spinal health means a reduction in inflammation, reduced tension and pain in the muscles, and improved blood circulation.

Treatment is Available for People of All Ages

Injured adults are not the only ones who can benefit from chiropractic care. Many chiropractors treat patients of all ages, from infants and toddlers to teens and seniors.

Care for Pregnant Women

An experienced chiropractor can also treat pregnant women who are struggling with the common aches and pains associated with pregnancy. Using gentle and effective techniques, a chiropractor can correct a pelvic or spinal misalignment, and effectively treat ligament pain, muscle pain, and more. With regular care throughout pregnancy, a woman can enjoy improved flexibility, reduced round ligament pain, back pain, neck pain, improved range of motion, and more, allowing them to enjoy this exciting time in their life, free from pain.

Pregnant women are encouraged to seek the advice of their OB/GYN prior to treatment, to ensure chiropractic care is appropriate.
