5 Benefits of Seeing a Chiropractor Regularly
What are some of the benefits of receiving chiropractic care on a regular basis? Relief from symptoms such as pain in your lower back, preventative maintenance that reduces the risk of sports injuries and living a better overall healthy life are just a few.
Your entire body is connected to your central nervous system. Chiropractors specialize in recovering and maintaining health through holistic and drug-free methods in your nervous system; a visit to your local Chiropractic clinic may be just what you need to get back on the road towards a healthier you.
Here are the top five benefits of seeing a Chiropractor on a regular basis:
#1 – Improved posture
If you spend most of your day sitting, then regular chiropractic adjustments should be a crucial part in helping you maintain healthy posture and alignment.
These adjustments help correct any tilting and / or curvature in your spinal cord that may occur during long periods working or studying while sitting.
Over time, bad posture can leave a mark not only on your back, but the rest of your body as well. This can open the door for degenerative diseases in the muscles, ligaments and joints.
For example, if your neck muscles receive too much strain daily, then they may become sore and harder to move. Without treatment, these muscles can become stiff permanently – a condition that’s also known as “stiff neck”. This concept can be extended to the shoulders, abdomen, lower back, upper back and even your arms and legs.
Sore muscles can cause a lack of motivation for active living and result in:
- broken bones
- suppressed veins
- muscle contractions
…and other health ailments if not treated properly. Indirectly, your heart can also be affected by some of these aforementioned health problems, which is why good posture is key to living an all-round healthy life.
#2 – Improved sleep
Pain and body aches resulting from misalignment can be a total nuisance when trying to sleep and prevent you from getting the proper rest necessary to go about your day.
Sleep plays an integral role in your health. A lack of sleep on a consistent basis is associated with a wide variety of problems, including:
- Heart attack & disease
- High blood pressure
- Impairment of concentration, learning & cognitive thinking
Regular chiropractic adjustments can help maintain alignment in the body’s central nervous, skeletal and muscular systems while other special treatment methods such as Active Release Technique help to repair injured tissues, joints and ligaments.
Cold laser therapy is another form of treatment that can help alleviate pain and inflammation throughout your body and allow you to get a better night’s rest at the end of a long day.
#3 – Improved mood
One of the main purposes of chiropractic adjustments is to improve your body’s own ability to balance its chemistry without the help of prescription drugs.
If your central nervous system is working properly and subluxation free, it’s better equipped to balance your body’s chemistry.
This means that your mood will improve, you will be able to think more clearly and experience higher energy levels and deeper sleeps.
Chemical imbalances are known to cause a wide range of problems for people such as depression and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD).
Revelation Health Centre’s team of chiropractors are experienced in treating such health problems.
#4 – Stress relief
A misaligned nervous system can cause your skeletal and muscular systems to become misaligned. When this happens, one part of your body may begin to compensate for the weakness in another, resulting in a great deal of stress physically and mentally if symptoms are severe enough that there is constant pain.
Once you receive an adjustment and acquire more balance in your body, you’ll feel less tense and your central nervous system will be much better equipped to deal with the stresses encountered in every day life.
For pregnant woman, misalignment can result in many stresses on both the mother and the unborn baby with very concerning possible outcomes. Find out more on how to go about relieving these stresses at Prenatal Chiropractic Care in Calgary today.
#5 – Preventative treatment
Perhaps one of the most important benefits of chiropractic care that it’s a preventative form of treatment.
When your chiropractor adjusts you, it restores proper functioning of the central nervous system by removing encumbering subluxations.
Your central nervous system is responsible for sending (and receiving) information to all parts of your body, including your immune system. Therefore, when the spinal cord and brain are working well, then your immune system will be too and be better off to deal with any sicknesses that come your way.
