If you know anything about chiropractic you probably know that it is a great treatment option for headaches, low back pain, sciatica and much more. But the true benefits of chiropractic go far beyond pain relief.
Chiropractors check the spine for misaligned bones in the spine that pinch nerves that exit the spinal cord. These nerves go to all the muscles and organs and anything at the end of pinched nerve is not getting 100% of the information being relayed to and from the brain. This is what results in dysfunction and ultimately the symptoms that lead people to see the chiropractor in the first place.
Chiropractic is extremely safe and is often more effective than drugs or other treatments for problems with a musculoskeletal origin. And again, while it is great for getting rid of headaches, back aches and more it goes soooo much deeper than that!
Benefit 1: Improved Organ Function- the same nerves that to the muscles also go to the organs. If an organ is operating on reduced nerve flow then that organ is not operating at 100%. This is important if your body is trying to digest food, filter your blood and urine or coordinate the distribution of vital nutrients throughout the body. Getting regular adjustments makes sure the body stays in tune and operates at its best which keeps you feeling better!
Benefit 2: Improved Immunity- your immune system also relies on the nervous system to coordinate it’s response to invading virus’s and bacteria. Would you rather have your army of immune cells operating in a highly organized manner to combat an infection or running around chaotically swinging at anything that even looks like a bad guy? Regular adjusting of the spine keeps this critical system operating efficiently and keeping you from getting sick.
Benefit 3: Better Sleep– even if your not in pain per se lingering aches and muscle tightness can make it difficult to fall asleep or to stay asleep. How many times have you gone to bed only to wake up at 3 or 4am with a sore neck or unexplained headache? These are early warning signs that trouble may be just around the corner for you. Regular adjusting keeps the body fine tuned so that recurring problems with the back simply don’t happen as often if at all.
