Chiropractic helps relieve pain, reduce headaches, battles sciatica and more. But what happens with regular chiropractic care over several months or years? Thats when the really good things start!
Adjusting the spine so that there is less pressure on the nerves exiting the spine allows the nervous system to flow and function at full strength. This is why chiropractic is so effective for pain relief. But pain is only half the story.
The same nerves that go the muscles also have branches that go to the organs. And just like muscles and tendons organs are negatively affected by constant reduced nerve flow also. Thus regular chiropractic care not only ensures the muscles and joints are moving fully and powerfully but it also ensures the organs are functioning at as high a level as possible.
These are 3 things that can only happen with REGULAR chiropractic care. This means 1-4 adjustments per month over and extended period of time ranging from 6 months to a lifetime. Chiropractic truly is a lifestyle, not just an isolated therapy for pain.
1) Improved Organ Function- As chronic subluxation (bone out of place) sets in they slowly get worse over time. As they slip further out the pressure on the nerves gets more intense and organ function slowly is reduced. This is not a fast process but it does add up in significant ways over time. For example I have patients who come in for digestive issues. Once we adjust the middle/lower back they are fine for several weeks. Regular adjusting makes sure the organs are functioning at their highest potential which means better overall health.
2) Better Mobility and Less Pain- This ones a no brainer but regular chiropractic treatment over extended periods of time obviously keeps the joints moving and muscles loose. This prevents everything from injuries to headaches to sciatica. Having the body as resistant as possible to soft tissue injury is always a good thing.
3) Reduced Wear and Tear on Spinal Discs and Joints- One of the worst things that happens when the spine doesn’t move properly is it wears out. We can see this on X-ray as arthritis in the spine and degenerative discs in the spine. Regular chiropractic care greatly slows this process allowing a healthy spine well into old age. The sooner you get started the better for preventing the spine from wearing out.
